Oh, I might as well go ahead and say it…my name is Layla, and I’m a France-a-holic.
I found the perfect place to stay when we go there. It’s called “La Maisonette”, which means “small house” in French. Too cute!
The description reads, “…La Maisonette is a 350 year-old enchanting stone cottage located in the charming and historic riverside hamlet of Montarnal. La Maisonette is located within five minutes of the ancient village of Vieillevie which offers a delightful restaurant with a beautiful wisteria-covered riverside terrace, post office, cafÃ©, and general store. The Cottage is also minutes from the charming mountaintop hamlet of Le Fel with restaurants, vineyards, a premiere ceramics gallery and tennis courts, and the medieval village of Entraygues-sur-Truyere is only 15 minutes away and offers full services including a village walking tour, shopping, cafÃ©s, post office, bank, etc. There are also several farmer’s markets and festivals during the peak summer months. For wine enthusiasts, Le Fel-Entraygues is a boutique wine region with a handful of wineries to explore. La Maisonette is absolutely perfect for a romantic holiday! Nestled between an 11th century tower and a beautifully restored chapel, the cottage transports you to another time and place. You may choose to walk around the hamlet, picnic along the river’s edge, or simply curl up with a good book and enjoy the charming cottage and its views. The Lot River is just a short walking distance from the front door of the cottage for picnics, swimming and sunbathing. You can hire canoes, rafts and kayaks from Entraygues or Le Port and take a trip down the scenic river.
