There is also a utility room with toilet, washing machine and separate shower room with hand basin. The south-facing veranda has a table and chairs and barbecue for al fresco meals. Visitors have told us that at all times of year, the veranda is so sheltered that they have eaten all their meals there. Bedroom 1 upstairs has a double bed and French windows opening out to a wonderful view of the river, whilst bedroom 2 has twin beds and a door leading to a small terrace and steps down the side of the house. There is also an upstairs toilet with hand basin. Full oil-fired central heating for low season holidays is available. There is a garage for one car and ample parking for additional vehicles.

In May and June watch for the local Lot Valley Moth, Saturnia pyri. It has up to a 6″ wingspan, is green in colour and notably found in the area around Vieillevie and Entraygues.

Below the cottage there is access to the river Lot, so visitors can enjoy river swimming, fishing (we can help with licences) or pure relaxation while kingfishers and herons fish and red kites and eagles circle the sky.
