Auberge Beauville is 5 minutes walk away at the top of the lane in Espedaillac village and a small shop a 10 minute drive away in Livernon. A bakery/provisions van calls at the house almost daily and announces his arrival by tooting the horn. The surrounding countryside is a walkers and cyclists delight and canoeing on the Cele and Lot rivers is a lovely day out. The Knights Templar town of Figeac is a short drive a way and provides stunning Quercy architecture, a bustling Saturday market with bars and shops to visit. There are more exciting places to eat than can be named here but look on our pin board for ideas! All in all there is plenty to see to capture the imagination and local produce to tempt all tastes. Tourist sites of Rocamadour and St Cirque Lapopie are very easy to reach.
