Our Properties in South West France
At Kingfisher, we know that choosing the right accommodation is the key to a great holiday.
With over 30 years of experience letting gites, cottages, farmhouses and villas in the South of France, you can be assured of high quality holiday accommodation.
Whether it’s a cosy cottage for two or a large villa for an extended family, we offer a variety of properties suitable for couples, families or large groups up to 24.
Our holiday houses are located in the beautiful Lot Valley and the ancient region called The Quercy. They are rural, lush areas with interesting Bastide towns situated south of the Dordogne in Southwest France.
All our properties are privately owned and maintained, which means that each one is unique, with its own particular appeal.
Some are traditional stone-built buildings with characteristic window shutters; others have a more modern style. Some properties are very close to local amenities; others are up to 8kms away. All have self- catering facilities and each one has a swimming pool.
With this much variety it is important to match your particular needs to what each property has to offer. You are very welcome to call us and discuss your requirements as we are personally familiar with all our properties.
More than half our rentals come from previous happy customers
What Kingfisher clients say...
Owners of Barguillac are very helpful, welcome pack amazing. Gite very comfortable and clean in a lovely quiet location. Area very nice with some good restaurants nearby. Pool amazing and very welcome in the hot weather. Night markets are well worth a visit.

We really enjoyed both our weeks. The booking process is straightforward with a very personal touch and the descriptions/photos fitted the properties well. Both La Tuque and Le Roc are very well equipped. We especially loved the salt water pool at La Tuque and the views and coffee machine at Le Roc! Having a brief history of the house at Le Roc is appreciated. Both Linda and John were lovely and helpful house managers. A big thank you to owners and support staff, including yourself!

Comte is ideal for a larger holiday – we were 8 with 4 of us between 25 and 30. The large bedrooms and sitting room made it perfect for us to be able to be together as a group and just be on our own when the mood fitted. The pool area is very, very good, with lots of additional covered space for BBQs and ping-pong. We spent many late nights and some early mornings enjoying our holiday to the maximum!
Mr. J. L.
We were absolutely delighted with our holiday home, Capelle, even better than shown on the website pictures and easily the best we’ve stayed in in over 20 years of visiting French holiday homes. Everything was immaculate and spotlessly clean on arrival, and we loved the modern bathrooms and light and airy bedrooms. The pool was beautifully clean and a good size for the whole family. We appreciated the nice personal touches for visitors like the poolside crockery and glasses etc, the extensive range of kitchen equipment, crockery etc and also the wide range of sports equipment available which was well used by the whole family. The house was also perfectly located just a 10 minute walk from Bourg De Visa. Thank you – we will definitely be booking again with Kingfisher Holidays!
The French Farmhouse is a fantastic property. The house is very spacious, with good beds and very nice bathrooms. It was very clean when we arrived. Everything is still very new and nice renovated. The nice balcony is a good place to see the sun rise and to relax in the evening with a good glass of French wine. The pool is big enough and heated! We enjoyed the pool house with barbeque.
