Domaine de Labarthe

Espère, Lot
Bed & Breakfast

Your friendly, civilised hosts offer you stylish bedrooms in the guest wing, swims in the outdoor pool, and wonderful dinners and wines


6 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


These vital, welcoming, interesting people, who are in the wine trade and grow walnuts, have turned one wing of the handsome old family house into elegant B&B rooms, two in subtle designer colours, one in traditional cosy French style; and The two-storey pigeonnier would be perfect for a small family. Laurence’s dinners alone are worth the visit, then there’s the fine pool on the olive-studded terrace, the rose garden and Italianate formality rolling past walnut groves to the Lot countryside, gastronomy and wine, old villages and unmissable Cahors. Such wealth.

Great location, wonderful rooms, excellent breakfast. Very friendly and helpful hosts. Furthermore we enjoyed the pool, the garden and especially the barbecue area which can be used by the guests. Conclusion: probably the best spot we have experienced in France.

Johannes, Feldkirch

A gem of a place. Laurence and Guillaume were most welcoming. We had 7 of our best nights of many in France during countless holidays at this delightful accommodation close to Cahors. The facilities were excellent, including a heated swimming pool, an outdoor kitchen/BBQ area, plenty of outside seating, varied breakfasts, comfortable bed, regularly changed towels along with bathrobes/towels for pool use, not to mention covered car parking.

Ross, Guildford

Based on the pictures at the website and the reviews, we had high expectations for our 3-night stay at Domaine de Labarthe. But we were not prepared for the serene charm and comfort of this family owned country estate inn, or for the warm hospitality we received from our hosts, Laurence and Guillaume. We wish we could have stayed longer. We look forward to our next visit

Lawrence, Rowayton, connecticut

This is the sort of place you want to tell everyone about, and then no-one, because if too many people know about it, it will be difficult to book. The hosts are charming and extremely helpful. The rooms cool and comfortable and bathrooms exemplary, with great power showers. The winner though is the house and region. Steeped in history, immersed in wine and thoughtfully and tastefully maintained. The guest kitchen adds options and convenience, but if you miss out on one of Laurence's meals you do yourselves and your host an injustice. Enjoy chilling by the pool or the nearby market in Cahors.


A great place to stay to explore the Lot valley. Excellent room (how nice to have twin room available) with one of most comfortable beds, delicious breakfasts on the terrace when weather was nice. Able to have a refreshing swim at end of day and use an outdoor kitchen. Very welcoming hosts with invaluable advice about local area etc. One of the best Sawday recommended places we've stayed at.


Absolutely superb B&B. Lovely room. Very clean. Larence and Guillaume are very cultured and most friendly hosts. Breakfasts by the swimming pool will be a very happy memory for many months to come. We would thoroughly recommend domaine de Labarthe to anyone. Frederick & Anne Hackett
