Description for B&B:

A warm welcome awaits you at our Bed & Breakfast in the Lot department of France.

A few kilometres from the delightful old market town of St. Céré, the house is set high in the hills surrounded by wonderful countryside and abundant wildlife. Previously a farmhouse owned by several generations of the same family, our home now offers comfortable newly refurbished en-suite bedrooms, relaxed dining and a “home from home” atmosphere. Our Guest Book is full of lovely comments about Alex’s evening dinners, freshly prepared using local seasonal produce including imaginative vegetarian options and which are available most evenings by reservation. In 2007 we were featured on the Guardian Newspaper Travel Website as one of of the top "veggie friendly" Bed & Breakfasts for our vegetarian menu option which included "a lemon tart to rival any you'll find in a patisserie!" In 2008 we are also featured in the best selling book about how to run a Bed & Breakfast in France.

Besides a wealth of beautiful medieval villages and towns to explore, the countryside is a walkers and naturalists paradise and we are delighted to offer an independent walking holiday package for those who wish to experience the delights of walking in France. Other activities available in the area include horse-riding, canoeing on the river Dordogne and cycling on and off-road. For those hot summer days, why not visit the near-by Lac du Tolerme, a large freshwater lake set in glorious surroundings with it's own restaurant and perfect for swimming.

Within easy reach are "Les Plus Beaux Villages De France" of Autoire, Cardaillac, Carennac, Turenne and Loubressac. You can also visit the delightful riverside at Beaulieu sur Dordogne or the stunning village of Rocamadour (the 2nd most visited site in France!) and don't miss Figeac with its lovely medieval centre and our favourite weekly market. Add the numerous fascinating cave systems (including the Gouffre de Padirac), one of the best bird of prey centres in France and the many local fetes and festivals and you have an ideal spot to enjoy a holiday in the wonderful Lot department.

Don’t just take our word for it, take a look at some of the comments taken from our Guest Book. New from 2007 is our very own "Brocante" where we have many of the articles and ornaments that came with the house - feel free to look around for a bargain!


Appréciations pour Jardin Du Segala, Lacam Dourcet:

Jardin du Segala
Review by: Margaret White, Avr 25 2010 6:17AM
Nestled in the hills of the Lot, on the edge of the little village of Lacam d'Ourcet is the Chambres d'Hotes of Richard and Alex Johnson. We spent a wonderful week here enjoying the comforts of their beautifully appointed home. Our bedroom and en-suite were very spacious and comfortable, with a glorious view of the village and surrounding hillside. As keen walkers, we planned to explore the beauty of the Lot countryside, so after a breakfast which included a choice of cereal, fresh fruit salad, bread, croissant, pain au chocolate and yoghurt, we set off on one of the walks recommended by our hosts - the description and map of which had been expertly produced. We were fortunate to experience glorious weather, but the day was rounded off perfectly by the tasty, varied and freshly cooked meal that was prepared by Alex each evening (except on Thursday when Alex had a well-deserved day off!) We enjoyed both non-vegetarian and vegetarian food - all equally delicious. Conversation flowed freely as the meal was served without haste and in a relaxed manner, finally adjourning to their lounge and the welcome flicker of the wood fire.

There are no shops, bars or restaurants in the village itself, but the delightful little town of St Céré is about 15-20 minutes away and has a variance of places to eat and shop. It's worth noting that a carafe of wine is free with your evening meal, but aperitifs, beers or wine can be purchased at a small extra cost.

Only one word of warning, due to its location, be sure to get detailed instructions from Richard on the best route to take to get to Lacam d'Ourcet - we didn't bother and went by our map and took a very wrong road indeed!!!
