The Lot is a welcoming land where nature is omnipresent, and which is easily revealed to those who wish to stop there. The first men stayed here. Those of today perpetuate the traditions and are keen to preserve their territory.
So that you will be as charmed as we were when we settled in Thégra, La Bocagère has been designed so that people and nature can meet, with the greatest respect for each other.
La Bocagère is a responsible gite with eco-tourism as a common thread.
SOURCE AND BUY LOCAL
DURING THE WORKS, DURING YOUR STAY...
We reused the stones removed from the interior earthwork to make the lintel, the jambs and the threshold of the large opening bay in the façade, and the stones from the opening were reused to rebuild the low dry stone wall on the north side.
The aluminium windows were made in the Limousin, and beautiful walnut planks that littered the floor of the first floor were reused to make the living room table and kitchen shelves.
The local producers are waiting for you to discover their specialties and delicacies from the Lot. I have prepared a documentation with all my "favourites" !

RAISING CHILDREN'S AWARENESS
LET'S SHARE THE KEYS OF OUR PLANET
Our little ones must be initiated into respect for the environment and we must awaken them to these values so that they become eco-citizens.
This is why La Bocagère has thought of them.
A small space is reserved for them on the first floor, where they will find a suitcase containing binoculars, small notebooks and coloured pencils. They can try to become naturalists, explorers, and discover and understand nature: card games on trees, mushrooms, specialised books.
In the living room, a cabinet of curiosities, at their eye level, will show them how to show off the fantastic treasures found on their walks.
