Beautiful gite, fairytale setting
Review by: Wendi Kaufman, Jul 23 2012 4:34AM
We spent a lovely week in La Carrierre. The Saunders family were warm and welcoming hosts. The two-story, two-bedroom gite was charming and spacious for us and our 'tween and teen sons. We loved the relaxed atmosphere and have rarely stayed in any rental where we were so warmly welcomed— stocked fridge, invitation to village festival and a welcome bottle of wine. The gite was a true delight: comfortable, well-equipped, and the perfect home away from home. Our kids especially loved the pool area, which was a lovely treat after a day of taking in the sights. We were all completely wowed by Albas and its fairytale-like surroundings and look forward to returning in the future.

Directions to Albas - La Carriere

The village of Albas is situated 25km west of Cahors and about 50km east of Villeneuve sur Lot. There are several ways of getting to Albas from Cahors - the most direct being the D911 (direction Villeneuve sur Lot). The alternative route along the river via Pradines (signposted as you are leaving Cahors), Douelle and Luzech is more picturesque as you follow the meandering river passing many vineyards and chateaux on the way. The drive from Cahors takes about 20-30 minutes. La Carriere is located at the bottom end of the village next to the river and boule playing area between the Restaurant du Port and the Bar L'Espanade.
