Secret Southern France
Most of our cottages are located around the medieval village of Entraygues sur Truyère nestling in the heart of the picturesque Vallée du Lot. Entraygues is in the north of the department (or county) known as Aveyron which is one of eight in the Midi-Pyrenees. It is here where the river Truyère tumbles out of the Auvergne and joins the river Lot..
Sheltered by the northern and easterly aspects of the Auvergne and Aubrac mountains, part of the Central massif, we enjoy a Mediterranean style climate with early spring, long summers, late autumns and consequently short winters. With the nearest Auto route 60 miles away and the nearest railway line 30 miles little has changed over the years and the Vallée du Lot remains a haven of peace and tranquillity.
Conques, is one of the most beautiful medieval villages in the whole of France and a stop over point for en route to Santiago de Compostella in northern Spain for over a 1000 years. The display of gold precious stones forms one of France’s most treasured collections. The many medieval villages are largely untouched by tourism each one proudly maintained in the unique style of this area with “fish scale” roof tiled hoses. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming, with tourists still looked upon as something of a novelty.
