Welcome to La Goutte, a truly unique accommodation clinging to the cliffs along the river Célé; one of the treasures of France’s Lot department. This extraordinary accommodation has recently been lovingly restored, using natural materials such as limestone and oak beams. The cliff walls are integrated into the buildings, giving La Goutte its unique charm. Part of the river and bank belong to the property, creating a private swimming and cooling off area. Ample outside space and stunning views complete an unforgettable experience!
