La Pierre Plantee bed and breakfast / chambre d'hotes accommodation is where you can have a relaxed start to your vacation or for a short break to visit some of the sights and attractions in this relatively unexplored part of France. Located in the beautiful Dordogne Valley there is an abundance of new attractions and breathtaking countryside to capture everyone's interest. Souillac 8km and Martel 7km are our closest towns, and we are 10mins by car from the A20 autoroute. Ideal halfway location when travelling across France.
A quiet modern single storey accommodation set in oak woods in the hamlet of Bazalgue, in the district of Baladou. The house stands on the crossroads of a walking track, marked by a standing stone. There are many local walks direct from the house. No passing traffic as we are at the end of a track.

Geraldine and Steve welcome you to their house were there is accommodation for up to 6 persons. All the rooms have views onto the woods, fitted wardrobes, bed linen dressing gown and towels, and are central heated in winter. There is 1 double bedroom, 1 twin bedroom and in the summer season 1 bedroom with two adult bunk beds. For the 3 bedrooms there is 1 shared shower room/wc & additional wc for the guests, & use of the dining area. There are no kitchen facilities available for the guests.There is a large garden and an elevated terrace and covered patio area for relaxing or picnics, use of outside fridge available. Breakfast is served outside in fine weather or in the inside dining area. Wi-fi available.
The property is not suitable for children under 8yrs old or babies.

We have the advantage of being on the borders of the Correze and Dordogne departments, which means the many attractions of all 3 areas are easily accessible.

In the Lot there is the famous 900 year-old pilgrim town of Rocamadour, plus the amazing caves of Lacave and Padirac.
In the Dordogne you have the Chateau of Castelnaud, with all its intact battlements, or the troglodyte dwellings at the Grottes du Roc de Cazelle.
In the Correze you can visit the ancient viscounty capital of Turenne, and call in at the red village of Collanges-la-Rouge.
There are also many colourful markets for local products, at Martel, Sarlet, Souillac and Brive

For activities it is a great area for walking & cycling. Bike rental can be arranged. We can advise on many of local tracks around the area. All the routes are covered by the IGN maps 2136ET and 2036ET.
The Dordogne River is also a wonderful place for canoeing, and fishing permits can be obtained easily. Other activities that can be done are paragliding, horse trekking and more.
We are also right on the doorstep of Europes largest and best Cave Diving area. Many of the cave dives are very local and there is an air filling station in the Lot region.
