We would like to welcome you to The Old Distillery in the Lot, where we offer a range of 3 accommodations for your French holiday. La Grande Maison (the Big House), our 18th Century traditional house of Perigord stone.
The soft thick Perigord stone walls keep this traditional house cool in summer and warm in winter. It also has double glazing, a wood pellet powered central heating and hot water heating system, and a wonderfully cosy open fire surrounded by plenty of comfortable couches and chairs. This spacious room also includes the dining area with its large table and chairs. The fitted kitchen has everything that you will need to have that completely enjoyable holiday.
There is your own private lawn area to enjoy, accessed from your dining room.
The Old Distillery in the lot is located on the edge of the village of Frayssinet-le-Gélat, the Lot, which is situated on a crossroads leading to some of the most picturesque and historical villages in France. Each direction leads you on to explore and enjoy so much in these charming areas of the Lot, the Dordogne & Tarn-et-Garonne.
An easy stroll of 5 minutes brings you to our 14th century village, where at the best Boulangerie you will find your baguettes, croissants and pains aux chocolats. Then there is also the mini-market, with its friendly English speaking French owner, who has a range of local produce, including cabécou cheeses for you to enjoy, as well as a selection of groceries and wines and free wi-fi.
On the other side of the village is the local Plan d'Eau, a very pretty lake much enjoyed in summer by locals and visitors alike, with its lively bar and café, safe swimming and pedalos. The very popular new café in the village is run by a well-known chef, who serves excellent meals. At the Bibliothèque library across the road from us, you may borrow books or use their computer facilities. We also have WiFi available for your use.
If you wish to shop on arrival we advise that in this area of France shops close between 12 noon and 3pm for lunch. Most shops are closed on Sundays.
As there are 4 steps leading up to the terrace for La Grande Maison and stairs for upstairs bedrooms for La Grande Maison, we very much regret that this makes The Old Distillery in the Lot unsuitable for wheelchair users
