                                                              Merci pour le review!

                                                              Location

                                                              Prayssac, France

                                                              The property: The gite is situated on the Lot river, some 3 kms south of the market town of Prayssac, and in the heart of the Cahors vineyards and rolling countryside. The area: The Lot Department lies in the northern part of the Midi-Pyrenees region in south west France. It is mainly a countrified area with a rich and varied heritage, landscape and traditions and well deserves it's slogan 'Tres Nature, Tres Lot'. It is an extremely attractive area with rolling hills, rivers, woodlands and pretty villages. There are not too many tourists even at the height of the season. The two main rivers which run east to west through the Department are the Dordogne in the north and the Lot further south. When to visit: The summers are usually delightful with temperatures between 25 and 35 °C. You can expect a lot of sunshine, but occasional short thunderstorms. Note that the Gite generally stays quite cool even at the height of summer. But the area is also really worth a visit anytime in the period April to October. The weather can obviously be more variable early and late in the year, but even when it is not sunny the temperatures are usually 8 °C warmer than Northern Europe. Places to visit: The large village of Prayssac is only three kilometres from the Gite and has bakeries, bars, a market, 2 supermarkets, banks, pharmacies, doctors and dentists, petrol stations, a tourist information office, a cinema (shows some films in English), a post office, a swimming pool (July and August), tennis courts and many other facilities. Other nearby local places to visit include: Belaye (3km) medieval hilltop village with panoramic views. Castelfranc (4km) small riverside bastide with charming centre, gardens and river beach. Grezels (6km) village with a private castle (restricted opening) Albas (8km) medieval village with interesting church. Puy L’Eveque (8km) a medieval village built on a hill beside the river Lot. Luzech (12km) attractive small riverside town. Further afield, there are many attractive villages including some which have been designated amongst the 'most beautiful villages in France' such as Carrenac, Loubressac and Autoire in the Dordogne valley within the Lot Department, and St Cirq Lapopie which lies east of Cahors. Midi-Pyrenees region has also classified various 'Grands Sites' in the Department which include the Dordogne valley, Cahors (the chief town in the Lot and which has both a roman and medieval history), the towns of Figeac and Rocamadour (the latter being one of the most visited sites in France outside of Paris) and St Cirq Lapopie. In addition, there are castles, more medieval towns (like Sarlat), pre-historic caves, museums, farms and vineyards just waiting to be explored. Or you can take a ride on a steam train at Martel, take a boat trip on one of the rivers or visit an animal park. Activities: If you are looking for something more energetic or activity based there's Ballooning, Bird Watching, Canoeing, Cycling, Drawing and painting, Fishing, French tuition, Golf, Hiking, Horse riding, Paragliding, Rambling, Shopping, Sightseeing, Swimming, Table tennis, Tennis, Tree adventure park, Walking, Wine tasting, Wine touring all within the area. Restaurants The area has a multitude of excellent - and often inexpensive - restaurants ranging from a €13 five course lunch (including wine) serving local produce up to a Michelin starred haute cuisine menu. If you like good food you have come to the right place. Markets: Most towns and villages have weekly produce markets which are a part of life in the Lot. Farm fresh eggs and chickens, locally grown fruit and vegetables, artisanal cheese and breads, flowers and plants are all well worth trying. There are also various specialist markets such as clothing, pottery and antiques. Festivities: July and August are the peak months for festivities in the area. Most towns and villages have fetes, often with excellent bands and dancing, barbecues or other eats and some with firework displays which can be quite outstanding for small communities. Some events are rather quirky, like the Confetti Ball held in July at Anglars-Juillac or the Hot Air Balloon festival at Rocamadour in September. In addition, there are a number of major festivals - often attracting international artists - such as the Cahors Blues Festival and the Souillac Jazz Festival (both mid-July) and the Festival of St Cere featuring opera, music and song (July / August). Transport: Like many country areas, you will need to have your own transport.
