A beautiful house in a stunning part of France
Andrea and Steve are excellent hosts; friendly, helpful and discreet. The property is beautiful, very comfortable and well maintained. After our seventh visit to the area we are still discovering new places to see. We had a wonderful, relaxing holiday. Highly recommended.
Thank you so much for your very kind words. It was real pleasure to see you all again and we very much hope that you are able to return in 2018!
with kind regards.

Great accommodation in a lovely setting
Well presented and well equipped with great support from the owners. We were on a family reunion and everyone enjoyed the venue, particularly the big pool. Spacious accommodation though divided over several spaces.
Easy access to beautiful country and ancient villages. Morning bread only 10 mins walk and a big supermarket 6 km away.
Thank you so much for your review. We are delighted that your family reunion was such a success and that you all really enjoyed your holiday at Les Fontaines.
We look forward to your return visit!
With kind regards and many thanks.

Tranquillity and charm in the Aveyron
This is our second stay at 'Les Fontaines' in the Manor House and we loved it just as much as the first time, if not more. Andrea and Steve are the perfect hosts and always ready with a smile – nothing is too much trouble, and very helpful in answering any questions you may have regarding places to visit, restaurants etc. There is plenty to do in the area and if you are prepared to travel between 30 minutes to 1 hour there is masses to see and do. We loved it so much that we came back for 3 weeks this time (last year we stayed for 2 weeks).
The house is very pretty, clean and tidy, and very comfortable with beautiful furnishings inside. The top floor in particular is very spacious and English TV is now available should you wish! It is wonderfully quiet and peaceful with a lovely garden and swimming pool. There is also a garden room where I was able to set up my easel and paint – the perfect space for me and out of the heat of the sun.
I am already making plans to return again next summer – it’s becoming like our second home!
Thank you so very much for your kind words. We are delighted that you enjoyed your return trip so much you are considering coming back again next year!
With many thanks and kind regards.

A Hidden gem on the Aveyron/Lot Boarder
My family and I stayed in the Country House for a week. We had viewed the property on their website and it more than lived up to our expectations. Such a beautiful house and peaceful surroundings. Inside the house the rooms are well proportioned, very clean and a lot of thought has gone into the luxurious furnishings and décor. Outside there is a large pool which is kept immaculately clean and has plenty of loungers etc. for relaxing by the pool. it was lovely to go out sightseeing and return for a lovely afternoon swim. Andrea and Steve were great hosts and nothing was too much trouble. They recommended several places to visit, Najac, a picturesque village with a medieval hilltop castle and St Cirq-Lapopie another village with houses clinging to the hillside with breath taking views of the Lot valley. We will certainly return and won't hesitate to recommend Les Fontaine to friends and family.
Thank you so much for your very kind words. We are delighted that you all enjoyed your holiday so much and we very much look forward to seeing you again in the future.
With kind regards.

A delightful hidden gem on the Aveyron/Lot boarder
My family and I stayed in the Country House for a week and although we had viewed the property on the website we were amazed at the quality and standard of the accommodation. Extremely spacious with good sized bedrooms, beautiful bathrooms and tastefully furnished throughout. Plenty of outside space with a fabulous spotless pool and even had use of a lovely summerhouse. It was peaceful and relaxing and our hosts Andrea and Steve were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. They advised us of plenty of places to visit including Najac a bastide village which has a stunning hilltop castle and St Cirq-Lapopie again built into a hillside with stunning views of the Lot valley. A hidden gem which we can definitely recommend and look forward to visiting again.
