*St. Cirq Lapopie--voted the Most Beautiful Village in France by the French public in 2012.

(Please Note: we love vacation rentals out in the country with pools--Europe has thousands of them. Yet for a truly unique experience of culture, cuisine, history, and romance, whether you're a family, a couple, or a gathering of colleagues or friends, there is nothing like living in your own private home in this fairytale village in this extraordinary region of France. It's a vacation you won't experience anywhere else in the world. And p.s., you won't miss the pool--there's a great sandy beach on the river.)

For just a moment, imagine spending a week ...Read more

Additional Location Information

There is nothing like living in a medieval village in a fully renovated medieval home, with beauty and history at every turn, not only within the town, but within the house as well. The light, the location, the living space, make this a very special place for a vacation with family, for a family reunion, for a couples getaway, or a gathering of friends. The layout, while designed to sleep up to 10 people, with five bedrooms and three full bathrooms, has an openness and comfort that even a single couple or small family can enjoy.
In addition to the great pleasure of having a house in such a special village, this particular house, a characteristic stone house with its familiar red-tiled roof, was built about the 13th Century and has the charm of history (for example, an archer's window from which we imagine arrows were rained down upon King Richard the Lion-hearted in his foiled attempt to conquer this little city), as well as some lovely views, architectural details, and a location just up the street from the ancient arch which draws one into the village.
The house just off the main street, a quick walk to restaurants and shops, yet in the morning and evenings it is quiet enough on the street to pull out chairs and watch the sky with a glass of wine or hors d'oeuvres in hand. In addition it is situated just below the house of the founder of surrealism, Andre Breton, and has a lovely public garden behind it, just off the beaten path.
There is free parking a short walk just outside the Village gate. And as you will see when you visit the website, there is so much to do nearby: from vineyard hopping to bicycle rides, from kayaking to market shopping, from prehistoric caves to nearby castles.... many possible day trips-- a week won't seem like enough time, but even a single day will feel rejuvenating and memorable..
