Holiday with us a Lot, France

Most of the self catering gite holiday accommodation featured here, is found in the beautiful Lot Region of France, near the Dordogne river valley. The gite at Marcilhac is further South in the Célé river valley, lower Lot.

Bellfrance offer their guests fascinating history, marvellous local food, excellent wine and a relaxed atmosphere in quality gite accommodation.

Want an activity holiday? Hiking (this part of the Lot is criss-crossed with "Grand Randonée" or The Big Hike), canoeing on the Dordogne, Célé and Lot, cycling, walking and sightseeing - Rocamadour and the Gouffre de Padirac are close by. Just some of the delights to make your stay in the Lot memorable.

Above all we welcome you to the Poterie des Cloches at Cajarc where you can learn to throw, handbuild, glaze and fire pottery under the expert eye and guidance of Gavin Bell(pictured with wife Lillian), a South African trained artist and potter with decades of teaching experience.
