At the end of a country road that winds through vineyards and chestnut trees, you’ll find a farmhouse that’s been skillfully restored by Véronique and Fréderic Forveille. It’s a bucolic spot with unbeatable views of the Gorge du Lot, ideal for indulging in the local-centric cuisine made by the mistress of the house, while seated under the rafters in the dining room or under the wisteria on the terrace: pork and duck rillettes prepared with duck fat; saucisson smoked in-house over cherry wood; a series of farçous (chard, spinach, garlic and parsley) with fresh salad sprinkled with borage blossoms and galangal; impeccable young duck from the Ferme du Frequel in Florentin, cooked over the fire and served with golden Mona Lisa potatoes; before a generous cheese board (sheep’s milk tomme from Séverac-le-Château, cabécou from Golinhac, Laguiole aged for six months, Aubrac cow’s milk fromage frais) and a floating island just like your French mother-in-law would make. // P.L.

FEELING THIRSTY? Savor the wines made by the estate, available in white, rosé or red, ranging from €17 to €22 a bottle, or €5 for a 250-ml pitcher.
