About Martine Back
Coming from a tasty mix, the north and the Mediterranean, we have fallen in love with this beautiful region. The Lot brings together our values, contact, sharing, culture, gastronomy and Cahors wines. We have transformed an old barn and its barn into a beautiful property where we welcome vacationers for our greatest pleasure.
Martine Back purchased this Cottage in 2003
Why Martine Back chose Carnac-Rouffiac
During a holiday in the region in 2002, we had a real crush on this still unspoiled region. We wanted to find a holiday home, initially in the south-east but when we discovered the Lot, the choice was not difficult to make. Everything delighted us, the landscapes, the cleanliness of the pretty flowery villages with their stone houses, the cultural wealth, the gastronomy and a 'reasoned' tourism. After a few years of gigantic work, everything was to do, we opened the property to holidaymakers in 2007.
What makes this Cottage unique
Our property is located at the entrance of a small village (64 hab) dating from the Knights Templar. It is a campaign full of charm, calm, which will surprise you by its authentic side. Surrounded by vineyards, our cottage is a good start to discover the vineyards of Cahors.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
We booked this gite as a last minute getaway. Perfect for two people, exceptionally clean and well equipped. Pool was great with plenty of sun loungers and beautiful views. About 20 minutes drive to Cahors which is well worth a visit. Plenty of excellent restaurants serving good lunches at reasonable prices. The Lot Valley is one of the prettiest places we have visited in France and would certainly return here. Martine and Emile live next door and were on hand to answer any questions but were not at all intrusive. The perfect hosts for a perfect holiday.
Tank you very much Debra for your appreciation. We try to do our best to make our guests feel at home and by these few words you have everything summarized. We had the pleasure of meeting beautiful people like you. We will always enjoy seeing you again.
Beautiful location in a rural part of southern France
We booked this property primarily for a quiet week following our son’s wedding. The property is in a picturesque part os southern France. The pool and gardens are good and well maintained. The property is very clean. The bed hard and bed sheets poor quality had to request an extra pillow. Bathroom ok with very slow shower. No washing machine (although advertised washing machine and dryer). No pool towels provided and owner reluctantly gave us two). Owners 4 year old grandson uses the pool frequently-although no children allowed at property. No welcome pack had to go to shop to buy water! We have stayed in many owners direct properties before and have always been extremely pleased with them and they have all been as described on the website but sadly not this one.
Peaceful and well appointed
Lovely gîte in the middle of the countryside, with a nice shared pool and all you need. Everything was as described and we had an enjoyable week. There's a small shop in Sauzet that stocks a useful range of stuff including some meat, pate, cheese, wine, groceries, etc, very close (either 30 mins walk or a short drive), and a boulangerie. Very useful!
Thank you very much for your kindness and for writing a comment that will be very useful to our future guests. Hoping one day to see you again.
Beautiful Gite in a quiet away from it all place.
Had a lovely week here. Gite had everything we could have needed. Pool area was equally as nice. Everywhere clean and tidy and had pool to ourselves. Owners were charming and friendly without being on top of us.
Beautiful cottage among the vineyards
Martine and Emile were wonderful hosts sharing their property consisting of a lovely cottage with all the high end essentials. They have a swimming pool, shaded areas to sit and relax, with privacy as well.
It was so quiet and out of the way, yet driving distance to lots of sites.
Our hosts were so nice and eager to make sure we were comfortable. We would love to return someday. It is a beutiful part of France.
