"Valley of Paradise" was an ancient name for the Cele Valley !


This designated area of great appeal possesses many remarkably preserved Grands Sites des Midi-Pyrenees : 7km upstream is the historic abbey of Marcilhac-sur Cele, downstream is Cabrerets with Pech Merle's wonderful painted caves. On the river Lot are famous perched villages like Saint-Cirq Lapopie, un des plus beaux sites de France (20 minutes away), the chateau of Cenevieres, a Gallo-Roman aqueduct at Vers ... Canoeing on the Cele, boating on the Lot, river or lake fishing, bird watching, cycling, driving or walking, reveals a huge variety of natural habitats, flora and fauna. Home to 50-odd wild orchid species, dragonflies-butterflies-amazing moths ... these treasures are a fraction of what the Causses du Quercy Country Park's pure air and clean waters offer.The GR651, a long distance footpath to Santiago de Compostela, passes above the house, and a lovely river beach is below - with a snack bar in the summer. This haven of peace is 20 minutes from an SNCF station at Assier, 30 minutes from the A20 Paris-Toulouse motorway, 40 minutes to Figeac or 45 to Cahors.
