Southwest France Vacation House Rental
With its lush wooded hills and meadows, the Bouriane is one of the best kept secrets of the Lot valley, an idyllic piece of real estate wedged between the Dordogne and the fabled AOC Cahors wine region.
This is the France we all dream of, the France where the nights are so clear they blaze with a billion stars. Medieval villages and chateaux of golden limestone lazily bask in the sun. Ducks and geese waddle around the old farmhouses, orchards are laden with fruit, while autumn brings the wild mushrooms, walnuts, game and truffles that fill the village market stalls and test the talent of local chefs.
And enveloped in forests, in the heart of Brigadoon, this secluded, deliciously renovated maison de maitre is as dreamlike as the region- a retreat from time itself.
This peaceful village is situated 6km from the Lot valley. The river Thèze passes nearby where you can fish for trout. It has a campsite, several bed and breakfasts and self catering gîtes. Cassagnes is a good starting point to visit the area and the bastides villages (new towns) of Villefranche du Périgord, Monpazier, Monflanquin, Tournon d'Agenais, Bonaguil Castle as well as the Lot and Dordogne Valley.
Cassagnes is perched on a hill top overlooking the Thèze Valley and the RD 673 (Fumel-Gourdon) surrounded by chestnut forests and valleys, much appreciated by hikers. Below in the Thèze Valley is a large lake where you can fish and picnic in the shade.
