Maison d'Etre - Medieval, Magical and Enchanting Maison d'Etre ~ perfect for couples or families


Details of the Gite

In a national contest in 2012, the French selected St Cirq Lapopie as their #1 favorite village in the entire country. It is well deserved! Tour nearby chateaux and dine on wonderful gourmet meals. Kayak, canoe or swim in the river. Shop in thriving markets in one of the many other nearby beautiful villages. See cave paintings at Pech Merle. Located 15 minutes away, these caves are one of the last real caves open for public visiting. The local museums show everything from current art to the history of local farming practices. Enjoy tasting the acclaimed regional "Black Wines of the Cahors" made from the Malbec grape which is only grown successfully in this part of France. A visit to the wonderful and award winning wineries in St Emilion is a great day trip. The famous Tour de France climbs of the Pyrenees are less than a half-day away. There is great hiking and magnificent biking in the region. It is a slice of heaven for those interested in spelunking. The region abounds with colorful, local markets. Return each evening to relax in your own private home. With your fresh market purchases, you may make your own coq au vin in the fully-equipped, gourmet kitchen then dine al fresco in the private garden, Or walk to one of the fine restaurants within the village to enjoy the local cuisine. In the evening delight in simply wandering the cobbled streets. Take in the panormaic views of the Lot River valley, from the top of the castle ruins, 300 feet above the River Lot.
