Chambres D'hotes In Sw France
Set in a beautiful valley outside the village of Gindou in the Lot Region of South West France is a Le Perchoir des Paons, a charming renovated stone farmhouse, offering not just bed and breakfast but also delicious evening meals, a lovely swimming pool and relaxing painting holidays.Built on the side of a hill, the house benefits from lovely views across the valley and basks in sunshine nearly all day long. This delightful ‘Chambres d’hÃ´tes’ is the perfect setting for a peaceful getaway, and it is a well-positioned base for exploring the area. The owners specialise in running art workshops and painting holidays for all abilities, and when you experience the extensive grounds, the stunning views and the tranquil atmosphere you will see why this is the perfect spot for artists.To the north it's about 25 minutes’ drive to the beautiful Dordogne riverbanks with medieval villages, chateaux, canoeing and the historic market town of Sarlat. About 25 minutes south you can find the much wider River Lot with vineyards stretching across the river valley, and can visit the lovely town of Cahors with its historic Pont Valentre and the old town full of cobbled streets, shops and restaurants.
