La Maison du Saut de la Mounine is a modern, exceptionally well equipped, villa set alone ( no neighbours ) amidst trees high above a rocky amphitheatre carved over the millenia by a horse-shoe bend in the River Lot. Established as an area of outstanding natural beauty and special historical interest no further development is permitted; hence the peaceful tranquility of this beautiful spot. Either drive down on dual carriageways and uncongested motorways which are a pleasure to motor on, or fly to Rodez ( 55mins away ) from Stanstead (Ryanair daily , currently six months of summer) and hire a car at ever cheaper rates. Makes getting here a breeze.
