Where are we?
In the Causses du Quercy Blanc, an elevated limestone plateau in Occitanie, with extended views over a rolling hilly and wooded landscape. We enjoy a dry climate with mild spring and autumn weather and relief from extreme summer heat. From our elevated, south facing terrace, surrounded by lavender, rosemary and flowers, you will be able to take in the warm smells of summer as you enjoy moments of conviviality with friends and family.

The area has a rich history, long standing gastronomic tradition and a rare authentic French atmosphere. Meet the local farmers on market day, practice water sports in the rivers, fly at the private aerodrome of Lalbenque, experience the breathtakingly wild landscape of the Causses, savour local recipes in rural restaurants, sample top gastronomy, taste red Cahors wine in famous châteaux. The medieval cathedral city of Cahors and medieval Saint-Cirq-Lapopie, on its rocky promontory dominating the Lot valley, are under half an hour drive. Or simply play petanque at the Manoir, relax by the pool or under the trees, enjoy a candlelit dinner on the terrace under the stars. You choose!

Rent Manoir Les Gaillardoux for your exclusive use this summer. Its 5 stars from the French Ministry of Tourism will be your guarantee that your well-being is paramount in our priorities.
