     Nestling in the charming village of Saint Pierre Toirac, between FIGEAC and CAJARC, our beautifully restored 16th Century Cottage "Place aux Herbes" is the ideal base from which to take a romantic journey through time in "La France Profonde" where lies, seemingly unknown to tourists, the LOT VALLEY. The French talk about the Lot Valley as "La France Profonde", meaning "Hidden France" …


     Saint Pierre Toirac has a café/pizzeria/post office at its heart, making it a charmingly attractive and lively little village. It is only a 5/10mins drive from the bustling medieval town of CAJARC and, on the River Célé, the great little town of FIGEAC with an unspoilt medieval centre, not too encumbered by tourism. These offer all services (shops, supermarkets, restaurants, cafés, cinemas, banks, post office), as well as being dynamic and fascinating places to visit.
     "Place aux Herbes" is also 30mins away from CAHORS, on the River Lot, the capital of the old province of Quercy. While you're in the Cahors area, don't miss out on the local wine, heady and black but dry to the taste.
      There is something for everyone here: this is an area of outstanding natural beauty, abundant wildlife, leisure lakes offering excellent sun bathing, swimming and water sports as the area's local alternative to the seaside; a wealth of history and rural tradition and, of course, excellent food and wines. So whether you're looking for a relaxing and peaceful break or an active holiday in the great outdoors,
"Place aux Herbes" is definitely for you… - Tel. Int'l : +33 (0)563 81 75 46 - Mob : +33 (0)677 866925
