Mark and Troy welcome you to Cajarc, located in the Lot department of South-West France. The Lot is a sparsely populated region of limestone plateaus, known as “causses”, river valleys, and medieval villages.
Despite Cajarc’s small size, it is quite lively with festivals and markets. Our house is a five minute walk away from the center of town, which has several restaurants, cafes, bakeries, butchers, and a general store. There’s an outdoor market twice weekly with fresh produce and regional products.
Our neighbourhood was once the commercial hub of Cajarc due to its proximity to the river. Over 100 years ago our house was a clog shop (saboterie), and more recently, a pottery studio. It is divided in two and you’ll have one half to yourselves with a private entrance at street level. There is a large living room/fully equipped kitchen on the first floor, and a newly renovated large bedroom with private bathroom on the second floor. In the living room there is a wood burning stove. In the bedroom there is a queen size bed. Towels and sheets are provided. Ideal for a couple.
We’re on The Way of St. James Trail, which crosses southwest France on its way to Santiago de Compostela in Spain. In and around Cajarc there is hiking, canoeing, kayaking, water skiing, swimming, and cycling.
Our gîte is available for both short and long term rental. Different rates apply to season, and duration of rental. Long term rental availability is October through June (at a lower rate than short term stays). Please call for details.
