This restored farmhouse is on four acres of land which has many walnut trees, fruit trees and shade against the hot summer sun - essential! There are four bedrooms - three with double and one with twin beds - all with ensuite or private shower rooms and loos. One of the double rooms is on the ground floor. All but one of the bedrooms is southfacing across the valley. The kitchen/dining room (upgraded in 2012) is furnished in old French style but has all the modern equipment! The living room is large and has a TV on which to watch DVDs and tapes, plus a music deck. There is a separate 'four au pain' room which now houses the washing machine and all the outdoor equipment. The swimming pool is 4m x 8m and of one depth (replaced in 2014). The garden offers plenty of room to play badminton, boule, have a BBQ, eat dinner under the trees or simply lie in the hammock and enjoy your book and glass of wine! There is private parking.
Le Ségala is a hamlet of Cazillac near Martel in the northern part of the Lot, just south of the Correze. It is ideally situated for a relaxing holiday but with plenty of things to do and see.
The famous Dordogne river is nearby, meandering through beautiful cliff-hung gorges where you can rent a canoe and glide gently downstream, perhaps stopping off for a picnic on the riverbank and taking a swim.
There are few large towns and a smattering of small ones and all are almost totally unspoilt by modern development. Many of these towns have wonderful markets which brim over with foie gras, strawberries, local wines, fresh produce, and the cheeses and breads for which France is so famous. Sit in a café and watch the world. Take in Rocamadour, Curemonte, Turenne, Collonges La Rouge, Sarlat, the caves of Pech Merle, Padirca or Lascaux, many of Le Plus Beaux Villages de France. Take the children to the waterpark or the ariel walks through the trees. So much to do, so much to see.
