Check In
La Carriere is a homely, well equipped Gite. The kitchen is well stocked, comfy beds, great fire place. Robin is a lovely host, very helpful but not intrusive. Albas is a gorgeous little town, very quiet. We enjoyed our walks, runs, cycles & canoeing the river. Thanks!

Nous avons eu un très agréable séjour chez Robin qui est une personne très avenante. Le gîte est confortable et décoré avec goût. L'environnement magnifique ! Le seul bémol est peut être la position peu ensoleillée du gîte qui le rend assez sombre. Il faut aussi noter que les chambres à coucher sont en enfilade (même s'il la plus éloignée dispose d'une sortie indépendante par l'extérieur).

Accueil dynamique et efficace de Robin. Le gîte est très bien situé au bord du Lot, dans un village qui a l'intérêt de n'être pas trop touristique. Piscine bien. Seul nuance: la partie basse du gîte (cuisine et salon) manque un peu de charme et de lumière. Mais l'environnement compense. Globalement c'est satisfaisant.
