The Cottage

The main entrance from the terrace leads into a very large dining area with a glass topped table, fireplace, and a well equipped kitchen. The staircase in the dining room/kitchen area leads to the large bathroom with a bath, shower and washing machine. A glass roof gives a wonderful sensation of light and space. There is also a separate WC. Beyond the kitchen, is a spacious bedroom with a large double bed, wardrobe and comfortable chairs with its own terrace. Also on the ground floor to the left of the dining room/kitchen is the sitting room with sofa, chairs, TV (French and English satellite channels) and access through French doors to the terrace and barbecue area. This room as with all others is decorated in a wonderfully artistic style. A staircase from the sitting room leads to the large second double bedroom and then above this surprising room is a mezzanine floor that provides a reading and relaxing area with access to a small terrace and the vineyards surrounding the house. The design of the house with its special features and different levels is not for the faint hearted or those guests who prefer minimalist surroundings. Canonge is for the romantics who want to be wrapped in seclusion and stunning surroundings to soak up the quiet serenity which this wonderful part of France provides. The accommodation comprises of:

Grounds, pool and surrounding area

The house has its own driveway of 500 meters through the vineyards of le Fel. A grassed walkway brings visitors from the parking area through a pergola with hanging vines, which gives beautiful dappled shade and leads up the cobbled steps to the house and the front sun terrace. A large dining table and chairs overlook the swimming pool and breathtaking views of the river below. The 8x4m private pool is surrounded by decking with sun beds. There is a barbecue.

Canonge is a lovely cottage for 5 people set amongst the terraced vineyards of Le Fel and looking down onto the Lot valley and river 860ft below. This is the oldest house in le Fel, built of stone with lauze tile roof and over many years has been creatively renovated by the French owners. They have filled the house with wonderful curiosities that give the house its own special ambience. The cellar goes back to the time when monks produced and stored their wine here as does the current owner. Guests are welcome to browse and select a bottle from the cellar leaving payment in the honesty box. The house and pool are set in magnificent surroundings enjoying views that will take your breath away. This has got to be one of the most amazing holiday properties in the region both for its views and the layout both in the house and outside.   There are many different levels and steps between terraces and rooms – all delightful and charming. Canonge is a house extraordinaire! However, we would not recommend the house for families with children under the age of 14.


The picturesque village of Le Fel with its two good restaurants is a short drive away,or a 20 minutes walk through the steep vineyard terraces.   Montsalvy and Entraygues are both 9 kilometers away. In both villages there are banks, shops, bakers, bars and restaurants plus weekly markets, where good, reasonably priced local produce can be found. The large towns of Aurillac and Rodez are about an hour’s drive and both offer extensive shopping, culture, restaurants and activities to suit all tastes. Please note that for security purposes we cannot show the exact location of the property.
