English Version | Version Française

Le Perchoir des Paons is a stone farm house believed to be over 300 years old,with outbuildings and grounds of about 2 acres. The house benefits from lovely views across the valley, as it’s built on the side of a hill and basks in sunshine nearly all day long. It’s set in farmland in a hamlet on the outskirts of the tiny village of Gindou in the Lot, midway between the Rivers Dordogne and Lot.

We are near the well-known villages of Cazals, with its Sunday market, shops and restaurants, Les Arques with its famous ‘Zadkine’ museum and the restaurant ‘La Recreation’. Many other local restaurants and places of interest are within easy driving distance.

To the North it’s about 25 minutes drive to the beautiful Dordogne riverbanks with medieval villages, chateaux, canoeing and the historic market town of Sarlat. About 25 minutes South you can find the much wider River Lot with vineyards stretching across the river valley and can visit the lovely town of Cahors with its historic Pont Valentre and the old town full of cobbled streets, shops and restaurants.
