Heated pool and paddling pool
In the heart of Le Grand Figeac within striking distance of Cahors, Conques and Rocamadour, the charming village of Cajarc is an old medieval town in Le Quercy steeped in history, with spectacular views over the Vallée du Lot. The Domaine des Cazelles residence awaits here in a spot that’s perfect for outdoorsy family holidays, a site well-known for its cycle tourism and eco-tourism facilities with Station Verte (‘green resort’) status. The town has also been awarded the Site Remarquable du Goût label for its saffron-growing activities.
A lake hugs the village, stretching over 2.5 km long and widely considered one of France’s best: a fantastic opportunity to try water skiing, and give fishing a go. Cajarc is a huge favourite with ramblers and hikers, serving as a major stop-off along the Chemin de Saint-Jacques de Compostelle pilgrim trail (GR 65) that cuts across the Lozère and Lot regions.
Treat yourself to accommodation in one of the comfy maisonettes to sleep up to 8 guests, kitted out with a television and fully-equipped kitchen. The residence has its very own large outdoor pool and paddling pool as well as tennis courts and ping pong tables.
Saint-Cirq Lapopie: Perched high atop its rocky outcrop high in the unspoiled Vallée du Lot, the village of Saint-Cirq-Lapopie is one of France’s most remarkable sites. A listed historic monument in its own right, Saint-Cirq-Lapopie is also on the list of France’s most beautiful villages.
