Holiday Rental House
(Please Note: we love vacation rentals out in the country with pools--Europe has thousands of them. But living in your own spacious, private home in this fairytale village in this extraordinary region of France is a vacation you won't experience anywhere else in the world. And p.s., you won't miss the pool--there's a great sandy beach on the river.) Whether a romantic rendez-vous, a family gathering, or a reunion of friends, just imagine spending time in your own house in the heart of an enchanting and lively medieval village, surrounded by gorgeous fields, limestone cliffs, and a magnificent river, where you can take just a short walk to artist studios, gourmet restaurants, and wonderful shops, yet live in the delightful and sun-lit privacy of your own home, perfectly located ...

And p.s., you won't miss the pool--there's a great sandy beach on the river.) Whether a romantic rendez-vous, a family gathering, or a reunion of friends, just imagine spending time in your own house in the heart of an enchanting and lively medieval village, surrounded by gorgeous fields, limestone cliffs, and a magnificent river, where you can take just a short walk to artist studios, gourmet restaurants, and wonderful shops, yet live in the delightful and sun-lit privacy of your own home, perfectly located for day trips or hikes or bicycling, to castles, vineyards, markets, museums and more, and perfect for cooking your fresh market goods in the spacious fully-equipped kitchen at night. Between the Dordogne and Provence, on a cliff overlooking a magnificent river valley, lies the lively, medieval village of St. Cirq Lapopie, a place Richard the Lion-hearted once failed to conquer. And between ancient 13th Century walls, in the heart of this charming village that time has left untarnished, lies our newly renovated, fully-equipped, five bedroom, four bathroom home: Coeur de Lion. A once in a lifetime vacation: there is plenty of room for a family or two, or for a reunion or large group of friends, but the design of the house, with its master bedroom, bath, and study just above the open living space, makes this a cozy, intimate place for even a single couple. As you stroll through the village's medieval gate and gaze at the ancient red-roofed houses, many garlanded with flowers, you'll imagine that time has stood still. But when you walk through the old oak door of our home, all the contemporary trappings are there-- from the fully-applianced gourmet kitchen to the luxurious king beds to the two-person porcelain tubs. Designated an historic site and yet alive with modern life, St. Cirq Lapopie has been a mecca for artists and writers throughout the past century. The town has unique shops, many fine restaurants, art studios, a museum, a cathedral, and more. There's a sandy beach too. You don't have to stray far. Yet just beyond the village environs lie castles and markets, cave paintings and cathedrals, museums and vineyards, and the lush countryside. You can bicycle for traffic-free miles along the majestic Lot river. Or canoe for hours along the banks of the river from town to town. Or fish or golf. Or simply walk to the local castle or a nearby cafe or the neighboring patisserie. Whether your prefer lazing or action, window gazing or window shopping, dining out or cooking in, day trips or just a stroll to the corner, there is no end of enticing choices in our friendly, inviting village. *Richard the Lion-Heart (Coeur de Lion, the name of our house) was repelled by village archers from invading St. Cirq Lapopie in the 12th Century! (There's an archer's window in the house.) More recently, St. Cirq Lapopie was designated 'Premier' among 'the most beautiful villages in France.' * Ranked 'Premier' among France's 'Most Beautiful Villages' (and under consideration as a UNESCO World Heritage Site).More

We had a wonderful time. We loved how we could relax and enjoy the place, not feeling like we had to GO GO GO. We took a wonderful day-long horse ride. We absolutely loved the Gouffre de Padirac. That was a highlight for sure. In...More

We just spent three weeks in this wonderful house, and loved every minute! There were seven of us -- three generations -- including two children ages five and 2 1/2. (It's important that young children be stair-safe in this house, since there are quite a...More
