Description of the Villefranche de Rouergue vacation cottage rental
Situated between the Lot Valley and the Aveyron Gorges, Les Fontaines is a beautiful 18th century country house which nestles amongst two acres of woodland and open countryside. We are ideally situated in a tranquil location on the edge of a small hamlet, yet only 10 minutes drive from the historic bastide town of Villefranche de Rouergue where the river Aveyron meanders its way down the Aveyron Valley.

Our pretty wisteria clad cottage was totally renovated in 2005 to the highest of standards. Designed and decorated with your comfort in mind, we have used quality furniture and soft furnishings throughout.

The cottage has an open plan lounge with two comfortable settees, coffee table, TV for DVD use, hi-fi system and large wood burning stove. The fully equipped oak kitchen has a dishwasher, microwave and washing machine and separate dining area with dining table and 4 chairs. Oak beamed ceilings feature throughout, giving it a real cosy feel.

The cottage sleeps four people comfortably. There are two double bedrooms - one with a double bed and the other two singles (we pride ourselves on the fact that many guests have commented on how comfortable our beds are!). Pretty bedlinen adds to the cottage charm. There is ample room for a baby 's cot, which can be supplied on request. Electric heating in the bedrooms allows for all year round breaks.

The light and airy bathroom has an extra large shower cubicle and ample storage space for 4 people.

Guests have use of the luxury 12m x 6m pool which is well over 2 metres in depth at the deep end catering for guests who particularly enjoy diving. The pool is bordered by mature oak and ash trees which offer welcome dappled shade during the hotter summer months. The large garden, courtyard and barbecue are also available for guests to enjoy.

Bed and Breakfast Accommodation

We can also offer luxurious B&B accommodation in the separate guest wing of the main house. There are three double bedrooms. Two deluxe and one cottage style - all with comfortable double beds and quality soft furnishings and pretty bed linen.

Your delicious buffet style breakfast can be taken in either the medieval style dining room or on the terrace overlooking the garden and pool.

Guests have their own separate lounge area.

Coffee and tea making facilities and hairdryers are provided for your use.


We are blessed with bright blue skies for most of the year, and experience long hot summers. Spring and autumn are both usually mild, thus ensuring a very pleasurable stay whichever time of year you decide to come and visit us.

Area Information
In an area of outstanding beauty with medieval villages and castles perched on hilltops in every direction (Najac, Cordes, St. Cirq Lapopie, Belcastel and Conques, to name just a few), Les Fontaines is the ideal base from which to explore our lovely region.

Carcassonne, Rocamadour, Sarlat, Albi and Toulouse are just a few of the wonderful places to spend a day. For those wanting to explore further afield, the Mediterranean coast and the Pyrenees are both approximately 2.5 hours drive away. For the very adventurous there 's even a direct overnight train from Villefranche to Paris!

Canoeing and kayaking are very popular on the rivers of the Lot, Aveyron and Cele. Other possibilities include water-skiing, rafting and fishing. Relaxing river boat cruises are available on the Lot for the slightly less energetic!

There is an abundance of wildlife making the area ideal for birdwatchers, walkers and cyclists alike. We have several mountain bikes which guests may use at no additional cost.

Horse riding, potholing and rock-climbing are also available and the ski slopes at Laguiole are just under 2 hours drive away.

The famous vineyards of Cahors and Gaillac are within very easy reach. Why not spend a lazy day driving around the lovely countryside and sampling the superb wines on offer before purchasing!

Dining Out

There are many fine restaurants nearby where you will discover superb local cuisine from as little as 15 Euros for a 3 course evening menu and under 10 Euros for a lunchtime menu, which usually includes wine. For that special occasion you could treat yourself to a visit to Michel Bras 's restaurant at Laguiole which was recently voted amongst the top 10 best restaurants in the world.
