Ideally situated in a beautiful rural location near to local commerces, with highly appointed rooms and independent access, a very friendly welcome awaits you.
Description of Chambres D'Hotes:L’Arpent Vert is situated in the very beautiful department of the Lot in south-west France, just one kilometre from the pretty little village of Marminiac, and only 4 km from Cazals, an historic market village with a supermarket, bakeries, restaurants and bars, hairdressers, a pharmacy, etc.
“What a wonderful place – only wish it could have been longer. We couldn’t have wished for a better, more comfortable place to spend our first night” – Brian
Set in its own grounds of just over one acre, L’Arpent Vert provides the ideal environment for a relaxing holiday by the pool. Self-catering is possible with the barbecue and cooking equipment as well as a fridge provided for guests.
“Thank you for a lovely stay – 2 perfect nights in a perfect part of the world – and such warm hospitality” – Lindsay C.
Our home is on a beautiful plot of land with stunning views. At an elevation of 300m there are open views to the north, looking out across the sweeping valleys with meadows and forests of the Bouriane. To the south the land disappears into a large forest. If you are an early bird you can see the sunrise to the east as it comes up over the hills of the limestone Causses du Quercy. Then sit back with an evening drink and watch the sky become a kaleidoscope of burning colours as the sun sets in the west.
