A peaceful oasis set in the rolling meadows of the Lot countryside, this beautiful gîte has been exquisitely styled by the very kind owners. With a touch of design, the interiors are splendid with industrial and handsome furnishings set against a historical backdrop of exposed stone walls and an overall excellent and warm personal style. Fascinating objets d’art fill the incredibly designed rooms yet there is a constant feeling of warmth, grace and comfort throughout this unique home. The small pool/spa (can be heated up to 30 degrees) completes this romantic getaway.
There are two charming double bedrooms and one large bedroom upstairs with two double beds. Attention : this upstairs bedroom has a low ceiling so very large people should sleep in the downstairs bedrooms). There is also a mezzanine with a sleeping couch of 1.40 m. Two beautiful bathrooms.
The living area of Bonatelier is perfect for cosy evenings by the wood-burning fire and opens out to an impressive and brilliantly equipped kitchen where you can create feasts using the finest ingredients from local traditional markets. In the summer open the double doors out to the south-west facing terrace where you can barbecue, dine al-fresco and enjoy good wine from nearby wineries in peaceful surroundings.
The views from the private grounds are incredible. There’s a great sense of privacy on the stylish terrace where you can bathe in the sun or you may prefer to simply enjoy the tranquillity of the place, relaxing with one of your great books.
This is true France profonde with undulating countryside, idyllic rivers and ancient villages and towns. One of the region’s prettiest villages is Puy-l'Évêque, perched high above the River Lot with narrow medieval lanes, lovely restaurants and charming shops to explore. Visit on a Tuesday morning for the traditional market where you can pick up seasonal produce and local delicacies, then head to the river for the perfect picnic. Prayssac, much closer has also a wonderful market and many lovely small streets to wander through.
This area is also renowned for some of the finest wine appellations of the world and there are many excellent wineries nearby and beyond to discover. The famous town of Cahors on the River Lot is just over half and hour away whilst other highlights of the region include Saint-Cirq-Lapopie and Rocamadour as well as the famous villages of the Dordogne.
