The internal design of the house has changed over the years and has airy large rooms with good ceiling height. The house was recently renovated, including a new roof and is a happy fusion of ancient and modern. Decoration and fittings complement the ancient setting

お部屋
The minimum stay is 3 nights. Please allow two days from booking approval to arrival.
The house is in the hyper-centre of town, being 30 metres from the Mairie (town-hall) and its square with its Tuesday market. There is free parking on this square (on Tuesdays, park on a side street within 200 metres).

The house was newly renovated in February 2014.

Enter by is a small outdoor covered verandah, ideal for taking morning coffee and croissants and meeting your neighbours.

The front door opens into the spacious country kitchen with the facilities to cook and enjoy your market purchases and the local product. (If you're not checking out the local restaurants and cafes).

Adjacent is the lower lounge (which doubles as a bedroom.) and the lower toilet.

Stone stairs take you to the upper level of main bedroom, upper lounge and shower with toilet. There are views over the lower town.

Fittings are a blend of traditional and contemporary French and create a relaxed functional home. We want you to drop your bags and put your feet up.

Puy-l'Évêque、Midi-Pyrénées、フランス

Puy l’Eveque is a medieval town picturesquely situated on the Lot river some 20 miles downstream of the major regional town, Cahors. Standing on the bridge over the river you can look up at the village rising from the Lot, and imagine it in earlier times.

The town acquired it’s present name during the Albigensian Crusades against the Cathars, when in 1228 the Bishop of Cahors, William Cardiallac, took possession of the area. “Puy” comes from “Puech” in the old language Occitan, meaning hilltop, and Eveque = Bishop.

During the Hundred Years War, when the English throne battled with the French for control of France, Puy l’Eveque was occupied by the English several times. The local area lay on the front line between English-controlled Aquitaine to the west, including Bordeaux, and France to the East. Most local towns and villages have history relating to this period. The name of the War is a misnomer, as it lasted from 1337 to 1453, not for a hundred years!

The old town comprises stone houses huddled under the protection of the church and castle at the top of the hill. The keep is now all that remains of the old episcopal castle. The panorama of the Lot valley from the market place, by the Mairie near our house clearly shows what a dominating position the Bishop chose for his fort.

The church of St Sauveur with it’s imposing entrance was built at the north-east side of the town, at the furthest part of the defense system, of which it was part. Construction began in the 13th century, the nave was completed in the 14th and 15thC. Major restoration work took place in the 19C.

Golden stone houses cover the hillside down to the river Lot and the waterside promenade known as la Cale. Here the casks of Cahors wine were loaded on to flat-bottomed wooden boats, “gabarres”, for their journey along the Lot to the river Garonne and thence to Bordeaux. Until the arrival of the railway in 1869 the river was the main means of transport. After the railway boom, road transport took over and the railway closed to passenger traffic in 1971, and later to freight. Much of the old line is now used as footpath-cycleways along the valley.

Modern Puy l’Eveque has a population of around 2,000 and functions as a market town and administrative centre for the local area.

Bad sense of humour: feet are not really blue...but I can fly! (have to, living in Australia!) I share the French love of enjoying every-day life and enjoy good wine, smelly cheeses, decent coffee and vegetarian food. Traveling style is light - a 7kg carry-on bag. Have been lots of places over the years. Best travel memories are often of help from strangers, and that's why I try to be a fair and compassionate host. Don't have a life motto yet.
