Le Coeur de Lion was an extraordinary experience! My husband and I stayed at this beautiful home for one full week in April 2018. Charlie and his family have restored the home in a way that highlights all of its original architecture and infrastructure. My husband and I were so very comfortable here!...spacious rooms, extremely comfortable furnishings, quiet, completely equipped kitchen, appliances, laundry, etc. We rented bikes and explored the region as thoroughly as we could! Breathtaking. We especially loved the fact that this region in France is largely un-touristy, very authentic and rugged, and so historic.
We originally stayed at a villa near St Cirq Lapopie 25 years ago on honeymoon, so to celebrate our Silver wedding we revisited the area. My husband booked Coeur de Lion through the owner Charles, who was so attentive before our visit, advising things to do, places to eat, places to visit, Kayaking from the beach on the river etc. We enjoyed a memorable stay in his very lovely home. You could spend your days lazing around St Cirq Lapopie but it is also easily accessible for places worth a visit like Rocamadour and the caves of Pech-Merle. You are also spoilt for wonderful places to eat like L'Oustal to name but a few where you can walk to without worrying about having to drive! Our highlight was revisiting our honeymoon spot, a restaurant in the nearby village of Calignac called La Terrasse Romantique which was still run by the wonderful artist Daniel, it is exactly the same, we visited on a night of a storm where we had the most magical night!
