The Area Top

Le Cocardy, one of the local restaurants.

The cottages are situated on the edge of the village of Payrac and it is only a leisurely ten minute walk to bakers, general store, pharmacy, restaurants and bar.

The local restaurants offer a good selection of local specialities.

The village of Payrac is on the Lot/Dordogne border and is 10 miles from Souillac on the Dordogne River and 30 miles from Cahors on the Lot River. It provides a base with easy access to all of the attractions of the area including the cave sites of Peche Merle, Padirac and Les Eyzies, the beautiful medieval cliff town of Rocamadour and the many historical bastide sites.

Local activities include horse riding, golf, canoeing and, of course, walking.

There are many wines produced throughout the area, notably the AOC vin de Cahors (red) and the crisp whites of Bergerac.

Most of the wine producing chateaux invite you to a degustation (tasting) before you buy.

When it comes to food you are spoilt for choice with the local specialities including duck, foie gras, truffles and walnuts.
