Key Words: Villa Petite Chapelle is an exquisite home located in the PREMIER beautiful Village of Saint - Cirq - Lapopie. Its name comes from the tiny chapel with the cross next to the house.

Bienvenue: Villa Petite Chapelle will provide you with the perfect base from which to discover the stunning village of Saint-Cirq-Lapopie and the many attractions of the Lot.

The house is well appointed and has everything you will need with the emphasis on comfort and quality. The house is artistically decorated with antiques and original artworks.

The breathtaking view of the Lot River from the terrace is arguably the best in the village.

Location: The medieval village of Saint-Cirq-Lapopie stands high above the Lot perched on an outcrop of rock. The house is located at the entrance of the village. A 100 metre walk will take you to its centre. Here you can walk the cobble streets, explore artists' galleries, enjoy the food and wine specialties of the region at a cafe or restaurant or climb to the top of the outcrop for a panoramic view of the Lot Valley. However you choose to enjoy the village make sure you take the time to soak up the atmosphere of this postcard village with its outstanding architecture.

There is much to see and do in the nearby villages and towns.

Shop at bustling fresh produce markets ( a foodie's heaven), seek out a bargain at the Brocante or Vide Grenier

( empty the attic market ) and visit Chateau de Cenevieres and the historic caves of Pech Merle. Enjoy walking, hiking and bike riding in this picturesque region.The Lot River is an ideal place to swim, kayak or canoe.

The Lot Valley is less well-known than its famous relative the Loire. It is peaceful and the perfect place to reflect, relax and recharge. If you are in need of rejuvenation the incredible landscape will nourish your spirit.

Highlights of Villa Petite Chapelle: Up the steps, turn the key and the first thing you notice on entering the house is the inviting decor. White washed stone walls, original artwork by local artist Nerida de Jong and tasteful furniture create a wonderful first impression. The next thing you notice is the magnificent blue French stove. This is a REAL stove. The pantry doors are antique and a work of art.

The bedroom downstairs and the adjoining bathroom are an inviting sanctuary for relaxation. There is an antique bedhead and the bed is dresssed with beautiful antique linen sheets. The bathroom has a Moroccan influence with it niches and features a full size bath and separate rain shower.

Sitting on the terrace with its magnificent view while sipping your coffee or glass of local wine will become a favourite past time. Take the steps to the next level and admire the view again.

My husband Pierre and I live in Perth, Western Australia. Pierre was born in France and although having travelled extensively throughout Europe we alway return to France. We love everything it has to offer.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2011

In 2010 while flicking through a magazine in a doctor's waiting room I came accross an article describing the beauty of the village of St - Cirq - La Popie and the surrounding Lot region. We had planned to holiday in France during the year but had not decided on our itinerary. Pierre and I knew little about this relatively undiscovered part of France. The description of the village and the Lot Valley made it easy for us to choose this destination for our holiday.

On arrival in St Cirq we were not disappointed.

On the afternoon of our arrival while wondering through the French Postcard streets I saw someone from Perth I had taught with at a local school but not seen for over twenty years. This ex -colleague was renting their holiday accommodation from a person who had a house for sale in the village. The rest is history. We fell in love with the house and the village.

Buying a house in France had not been part of our holiday plans!

The stunning view from the terrace makes this the ideal spot to start the day with a morning coffee or have a glass of the superb, local red wine in the evening.

Walk 100 metres and you can enjoy delicious local dishes from a range of restaurants and browse numerous artists' galleries.

Enjoy cooking your purchases from local markets on our magnificent blue stove. Choose a recipe from La Cuisine or Taste Le Tour Cookbook and savour your quality fresh produce cooked simply.

After a long day of hiking, exhausting shopping ( only because you are wondering how you will ever fit everything you have purchased into your case ) or touring a chateau, relax and soak in the bathtub in the romantic Moroccan bathroom.

HOW COULD YOU NOT LOVE LAPOPIE!

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we arrived we fell under the spell of Lapopie! The village was amazing (cannot think of another adjective!) and we are sure we still haven't discovered everything! Food....oh my goodness - what was not to like! The locals welcomed us even with our terrible mangling of their language! The trips to the local markets, in particular VilleFranche were amazing, so much glorious fresh food (do you see a theme developing!) Our Petite Villa was so romantic and peaceful - the lovely touch of flowers and a bottle of wine on arrival was terrific and I had organised a meal for our arrival from Penny Horn - who we can recommend - a great way to start our holiday. Our Villa was 'home' and welcomed us back each day after our adventures and we had a few, but more of that another time! We are planning our return in 2014! For those who have a musical bent, Allan left a guitar so please enjoy!
Thank you Sharon and Pierre for sharing your home away from home with us. Jude & Allan

TRULY WONDERFUL HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed a week at Villa Petite Chapelle in St.Cirq Lapopie and loved everything about it. Sharon gave us lots of great help and information. She recommended that we go to the market in Cahors on Saturday morning to stock up on local fresh produce before driving to the village. What a lovely experience! The villa was beautifully fitted out with everything we could want, so we had a very relaxing time. Views of the village from the living room and terrace were sublime.
Also, the village itself is enchanting and its position high on the cliff over the Lot river is amazing. With the many restaurants,shops, and galleries to visit and all the surrounding sights to see, a week was not long enough. We will just have to go back. Thanks Sharon.

ROMANTIC PETITE VILLA

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a week in this picturesque village. The pictures really don't do the villa justice. It's perfect for a couple & I'm sure would do fine for a small family as well. The house is very well stocked with all items you could need. The view is unequaled from both the front windows and the upper patio. Sharon was so helpful in making the rental an easy process. We recommend this villa to anyone who wants to experience the beauty of the French countryside & ancient villages.

PERFECT HOLIDAY FOR CYCLISTS

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful 2 weeks at La Petite Chapelle! We had our bikes with us, and cycled down the hill from St Cirque Lapopie and across the river on numerous beautiful rides, or sometimes drove our rental car to a more distant point to begin a ride. Lots to do in the area, and the village of St Cirque is charming. The owner of the house is exceptionally helpful; she did everything possible to make our stay pleasant.

UNBELIEVABLY BEAUTIFUL TOWN

  • 5 of 5
What an extraordinary location! Every morning required another photo of the church, rooftops, and river valley. Sharon's instructions for the visit by email were excellent, and her local manager was wonderful and easy to talk to (in English!). The apartment was very well-stocked and clean. There is local free parking up the hill, which was a relief for us. We were there on the end of the season as the weather turned, and I suspect it might be a little damp in cold weather - beware of that minor issue. It was a wonderful holiday for us.

OUSTANDING VILLA IN AN AMZAING VILLAGE.

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Villa Petite Chapelle was extraordinary. This was our first trip to France. We spent significant time researching the area before we decided on a village. Our research included correspondence with Sharon, asking about the town, restaurants and activities. Sharon was fantastic and was very knowledgeable about the area. The villa is perfectly located and overlooked the abbey in St Cirq Lapopie. Watching the sun rise over the ruins was amazing. The villa was clean, charming and everything we imagined. The restaurants in the town were convenient and served amazing regional food. The village is centrally located and allowed us to take day trips to nearby markets. We had high expectation and your villa exceeded those expectations. This is the way to experience the south of France! We look forward to our next visit to Villa Petite Chapelle. Thank you Sharon and Pierre.
