Discover the Lot, the Lot et Garonne & the Dordogne!
It is obvious that Montcuq is known simply by its name (funny name in French), but if you are in the Lot, you must visit this magnificent village. It tells you its history with its Tower of the Counts of Toulouse, erected at the end of the 12th century and the castral village developed at its feet.
It is in the middle of this authentic setting that the market flourishes every Sunday morning, one of the most renowned in the Lot.
You won't be disappointed.
This picturesque village with its beautiful ochre colours is perched on a cliff with panoramic views over the Lot and surrounding vineyards. Adjacent to the Lot, it was once a successful trading port and has a stunning medieval and Renaissance heritage.
The village of Puy-L'Evêque is one of those little-known gems that amaze all those who discover it.
Saint-Cirq-Lapopie is classified as the most beautiful village in France and was also elected as the favourite village of the French!
It is reflected in the waters of the Lot below. A lookout point on the river and a history to die for: renaissance houses, medieval shops, narrow streets lined with hollyhocks and shady squares, craftsmen's shops... a real film set!
Straight out of the Middle Ages, this village, partly classified as a historical monument, can be discovered on foot, as if to better appreciate the nobility of its architecture, the elegance of its arcades, its staircases, its fortified doors...
We highly recommend this incredible place which is an eternal jewel.
