Lot French countryside gardens

La Galerie bed and breakfast has two hectares of beautiful gardens in the French countryside in the Lot, for guests to relax in. As well as swimming in the pool and relaxing on the sun terrace, you can enjoy a game of boules, or take a leisurely stroll around the gardens to see wild orchids and watch the abundance of butterflies and birds. And because of our countryside setting you can often see the wild deer wandering through the gardens.

 
Swimming Pool

Guests are all welcome to enjoy a swim and relax around the large 12 x 6 metre swimming pool. The salt-water pool has roman steps at one end. It is surrounded by a large terrace with plenty of sun loungers available for sunbathing and relaxing. The swimming pool runs on an eco-matic salt water system, which is better for your skin and eyes and guests often remark how pleasant the water is to swim in. By the pool is a garden room to provide some welcome shade on hot sunny days. Guests at La Galerie are provided with pool towels for their convenience.

Gardens and Boulodrome

Set in the peaceful gardens among the trees, is our boulodrome and it is the perfect place for playing a leisurely game of pétanque or enjoying the peace and quiet by just relaxing with a book on a shady bench. The area is floodlit for you to enjoy a boules or badminton match in the evenings. La Galerie has a large parking area in the grounds.

Many species of butterfly can be seen feeding on the flowers in bloom in the gardens at La Galerie throughout the spring and summer months. We have planted many lavender bushes in the gardens as they are particularly popular with these beautiful butterflies at La Galerie. La Galerie is a haven for bird-watchers. The birds that can be seen and heard include larger birds of prey such as eagles, buzzards, hawks, falcons and owls, as well as woodpeckers, wagtails, redstarts and finches. But please note that La Galerie is a “pet-free zone”.
