Ideal for Kids All Bedrooms En-Suite Parking Space

Just 6.5km from the UNESCO World Heritage site of Rocamadour, this attractive 5-bedroom holiday villa with a picturesque heated swimming pool exudes French character alongside modern flair. 

Despite Maison Couzou’s complete renovation, many original features have remained. Soak up the charm of the exposed stone walls in the open-plan space on the ground floor with its comfortable living area, fireplace and TV as well as a vast kitchen-diner which has been designed in a contemporary style. Large sliding windows open out to the long terrace for al-fresco dining and lounging overlooking the pretty garden.

The house is home to five air-conditioned bedrooms, one on the ground floor and the others beneath the characterful sloping eaves upstairs. Five modern bathrooms have also been cleverly added, some partially open-plan to the bedrooms, allowing Maison Couzou to comfortably sleep up to 10 guests. There are glorious countryside views from the large garden where you will find the beautiful swimming pool close to Maison Couzou’s terrace.

Set off the country lane and close to a small hamlet, this is an ideal location for exploring the enchanting landscapes of the Lot and Dordogne regions, starting off in the incredible hilltop village of Rocamadour with its rich historic and religious sites, one of France’s most visited destinations.

Elsewhere, as well as Gramat and its Thursday morning market, discover the Dordogne River by canoe or kayak, explore the fascinating caves at Gouffre de Padirac and Grottes de Lacave, admire the monkeys in the huge forest at La Forêt des Singes, come across hiking trails in the Causses du Quercy Regional Natural Park and dine out in excellent restaurants showcasing the fine gastronomy of the region.

Experience the exquisite town of Sarlat-la-Canéda, venture to iconic riverside châteaux and visit picture-perfect villages across the Dordogne and Lot regions such as Domme, La Roque-Gageac, Loubressac and artistic Saint-Cirq-Lapopie, all classified as ‘Les Plus Beaux Villages de France’.

In the Lot department of southern France, around a 20-minute drive south of the Dordogne River, Maison Couzou enjoys a picturesque setting 6.5km from the heart of Rocamadour, a UNESCO World Heritage site and France’s most important pilgrimage site.

It’s a true experience to explore Rocamadour – its cliffside setting is incredible and the valley views are wonderful. Admire the religious sites alongside the arched stone gate and impressive castle. Discover steep lanes and many steps – in the past pilgrims used to climb the ‘Great Staircase’ on their knees – then enjoy a restful drink or meal in one of the café-bars or restaurants. Thanks to its rich history and spectacular setting, Rocamadour is one of France’s most visited destinations.

Just outside the town, La Forêt des Singes is a welcome break, a huge forest with over 100 roaming monkeys, whilst there is an animal park, Parc Animalier de Gramat, around a 15-minute drive away. Of course, the hiking trails and outdoor activities of the Causses du Quercy Regional Natural Park await and its landscapes are inspiring. Look out for the GR65 pilgrimage trail alongside horse-riding, rock-climbing and watersports along the Lot River.

There’s also canoeing and kayaking along the Dordogne near Floirac and Saint-Sozy around half an hour away, as well as many caves to visit from the famous Gouffre de Padirac (explored on foot or by boat) and Grottes de Lacave’s limestone cliffs.

Visit the twice-weekly market in the attractive town of Gramat (11km) which takes place at the grand Place de la Halle. Other picture-perfect places to visit across the Lot department include Loubressac and Autoir, two of France’s classified ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ around 25km away, and the gorgeous stone houses of Gourdon (24km).

A little further afield are the iconic riverside villages of the Dordogne such as Domme (40km) and La Roque-Gageac (46km) as well as the famous castles Château des Milandes and Château de Beynac. Another amazing day out is to historic Sarlat-la-Canéda (50km), especially on market day, or simply visit one of the town’s gastronomic restaurants to experience the fine Périgord cuisine of the region.

Region

The pace of life in the Dordogne is languid, laid back and positively infectious. Relax in bucolic beauty as you drift along the Dordogne River, or wander among the forests and hillside of the Périgord Natural Park.

The foodie scene too, is a relaxed affair. Take your time over your lazy lunches of local duck, black truffles and goats cheese. If you’re feeling energetic, you can even hunt for them yourself. The wine here is second to none, with infamous grapes like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chenin Blanc all having a huge presence here.

The Dordogne is also brimming with history. Castles and chateaux are scattered throughout the region, among the enchanting medieval villages. History of an altogether more ancient sort can also be explored in the incredible prehistoric cave drawings of Lascaux and Grotte de Rouffignac.

Families will love the vast garden and wonderful swimming pool whilst it is fantastic being just over a 10-minute drive from famous Rocamadour. It’s a true experience to visit this hilltop town, climb its many steps and soak up its incredible history. Younger guests may also appreciate a tour of the town on the little road train that usually runs from early/mid-April until late-September.

Look out for falconry displays, owls and parrots at Rocher des Aigles and over 100 monkeys in the huge forest at La Forêt des Singes. There is also a large animal park in beautiful surroundings just south of nearby Gramat, around 15 minutes in the car.

You are well located for visiting the Gouffre de Padirac within half an hour, historic caves that you can tour by boat or on foot, and the Grottes de Lacave near the Dordogne River. Near Lacave, Préhisto Dino Parc is a must for young dinosaur lovers.

There are summer canoeing and kayaking opportunities in many places along the Dordogne River from Domme (around 45 minutes away) or slightly closer to home in Saint-Sozy and Floirac within half an hour. When visiting the Dordogne, perhaps also enjoy a boat ride on a traditional gabarre vessel from the exquisite riverside village of La Roque-Gageac.

Visited the caves in Lacave and went shopping in Rocamadour with our teenage girls. The house is beautiful, neat, we had a good time here! We just missed the comfort of good chairs at the table. The hosts received us well and were very friendly.
