Our swimming pool has been heated for some years and now with the new heat pump you can swim in real comfort. Heating the pool has been a great success with our early and late season guests, who enjoy all the benefits of an off-peak holiday.

The Lot is tranquil and picturesque throughout the year. Particularly beautiful in Spring and early Summer, when butterflies along with cowslips, primroses, orchids and many unusual wild flowers fill the meadows. Those of you interested in natural history will find the Lot Valley the next thing to paradise.


Daytime temperatures can range from 18°C to 22°C in April to 28c in June - along with the sunshine you would expect from our position in the South West of France.

Autumn, "l'arriere saison", brings its own beauty. The countryside is spectacular. Around each corner is another vivid landscape of reds and golds. Rows of vineyards and ripening grapes dripping from the vines. Then the vendange - picking the grapes is fetted in our nearest village with a gourmet buffet - locals and visitors alike join in to celebrate the harvest by eating, drinking and dancing the night away.

The yellow autumn crocuses are a beautiful part of our gardens - they seem to spring up from nowhere in front of your eyes.

Maximum temps can be as high as 23°C but realistically they average between 17°C and 20°C.

Ferry costs are considerably reduced and travelling to us is much more relaxing. Don't forget about the low cost budget airlines - book in advance to take advantage of the very low fares.

We will be pleased to offer advice on what to do and where to go, including wine tours, tastings, sightseeing and the best value restaurants.
