Welcome to Le Mas des Cyprès
23rd May 2015 - La Provençal - the stone bedroom refurbishment with insulation and solid, oak floor is completed.
At this former farm in the hills of a national park, the ‘Parc des Causses du Quercy’, just eight minutes from the vibrant market town of Cahors in the Lot region of south west France , there are two holiday cottage 'gites' for rent with an 11x5m saline swimming pool, children's play area and outstanding views from the 2.5 acre hilltop gardens.
This is a comfortable place to relax and explore this wonderful area of France. Whichever gite you choose you will quickly unwind from the stresses of modern life and enjoy the peaceful surroundings and magnificent views. Here, a gentle breeze keeps you cool in the summer sun. Relax and enjoy a glass of rosé whilst watching the spectacular sunsets over the surrounding hills.
The 11x5m saline swimming pool with large surrounding sun terrace takes advantage of the amazing views. The pool has roman steps at the end of one side to provide easy access - these are perfect for sitting on to keep cool and marvel at the stunning views. The pool and terrace are shared with the owners and second gite; it is sited a short distance from the buildings so that noise from the pool does not disturb others.
The 2.5 acre child-friendly garden includes private secluded areas in which to relax and a children's area with swings, sandpit and trampoline. It is not unusual to see wild deer and rabbits in the morning, swallows swooping near the pool in the evening and birds of prey soaring high above. There are many walks nearby with the closest passing our entrance. In the spring the garden is alive with colour from orchids in the grass to the wonderfully scented lilacs and herbs.
Nestled between the Dordogne and Lot valleys, and just ten minutes off the motorway, we are perfectly placed for visiting sites in both areas as well as the lively market town of Cahors.
The owners rented many gites before deciding on this beautiful spot and learnt alot about how to and not equip a holiday gite. Shower and pool towels are provided together with fans in all bedrooms and free-of-charge baby equipment - happy guests keep returning. Don't just take our word for it - see our feedback page.
