    For full details of each individual unit, please follow the hyperlink to open a new page. 

    Each gite has its own kitchens, lounge areas and bathrooms, but there is space to seat a large family indoors or outdoors. 

    Two cots and two high chairs are available on the premises.

    There is good internet, with fibre connection. 

    All the gites have television, with Sky in Chez Nous only, although connection via VPN will give guests a wide selection of viewing.

    View of the countryside from Vieux Mirou Gites

  • Guests at Vieux Mirou enjoy a panoramic country view from the terrace outside Chez Nous, and exclusive use of two pools: a 12 x 8m pool protected by a hard cover ( to the right in the aerial image) and a 9 x 4m fenced pool with enclosed terrace beside Maison de Ferme 

    Sun loungers, sunshades, tables and chairs are supplied. The pools are salt rather than chlorine.

    The terrace outside Chez Nous faces south and west, and with a built-in charcoal barbecue available, evening gatherings are very relaxed.

    The gardens are about 1ha, and the Owners have landscaped carefully with a number of mature shrubs. This offers plenty of chance to find quiet spots in sunlight or shade away from others if wished.

    There are washing machine and laundry facilities are in the barn which will be shown to guests on arrival.

  • Vieux Mirou is just off a road that runs between Penne d'Agenais and Montaigu de Quercy: Heading for Penne d'Agenais takes you to the banks of the River Lot and all the activities on the river such as fishing, canoeing and boat hire: Heading towards Montaigu de Quercy takes you into the heart of the rolling countryside of the Quercy with a very large range of crops and vegetables growing, alongside sunflowers, cereals and vines.

    Much of the local produce can be bought at markets, and there are lists of the local markets on the Area information at the top of this page, along with other restaurant recommendations and wineries. The area to the east of Penne d'Agenais and along the River Lot is the heartland of the Cahors AOC with a large number of wineries offering tastings and direct sales of the delicious red and white wines.

    For something curious, head across the river at Penne d'Agenais to find La Stelsia, a colourful park where you can freely wander around the manicured parkland, and enjoy excellent food and drink in the restaurants if you wish: If you fancy a testing crazy golf course, this is the place to go!


    Heading to the north on the other side of the river you will find a number of castles: Biron and Bonaguil are the most complete, and both open to visitors, and you will find other ruins as you travel.

    This is the country of bastide villages - fortified hilltop villages, and within easy reach of Vieux Mirou, you can wander the streets of Pujols. Lauzerte, Montaigu de Quercy, Tournon d'Agenais, Monflanquin and Villereal and marvel at the medieval timbered buildings that still survive today.

    Historic Cahors is the gateway to cave country, and guests can visit a number of caves in the limestone area including Pech Merle, and a little further away the world-famous Lascaux cave paintings.
