Les Plus Beaux Villages de France – The Most Beautiful Villages in France Tour
Wednesday 26th April 2017 and ‘Day 8′ of our travels cont…
After leaving Rocamadour we started the short 45 minutes drive to Corn, in the Lot Department of France.
On the way, we picked up food supplies as this accommodation had a kitchen and we were looking forward to cooking for ourselves.
We stayed in a gite complex near Corn called Gites de Combarel. This was our base for the next 3 nights. The complex consisted of a main farmhouse where the hosts lived and three smaller stone buildings that had been converted into gites. We stayed in Cottage La Grangette. The three nights cost us €234.00 and it was worth every penny.
The Gite and its host were great. The property was a lovely mixture of an old building with new styling and facilities. The property was on two floors. The entrance was on the ground floor and comprised a combined living/dining area and a fully fitted modern kitchen. A set of stairs took you down to the lower-ground floor where the bedroom and lovely bathroom were situated. Outside the bedroom door, there was a little patio and table and chairs overlooking the beautiful countryside and shared pool, in the far distance. Unfortunately, the pool wasn’t open this early in the year and given that we had frost each morning, it was for the best. 😀
Daniel and Martine, the hosts at Gites de Combarel were absolutely lovely and made us feel very welcome. The area where you park is close to their property and the farm buildings. It’s a little walk along a path to the gite. It would be nice to know if they’re still the owners as it would be somewhere I’d like to go back to.
