The Midi-Pyrenees region
The Lot Valley in South West France is a popular holiday destination for couples, families and groups of friends. Set in beautiful, unspoilt rolling countryside of gentle hills and valleys, it is made up of green fields, oak forests, vineyards, farmland and historic hill-top Bastide towns.
The region benefits from a warm sunny climate, making it ideal holiday weather and perfect for relaxing by the pool, eating alfresco and taking long leisurely walks in the beautiful countryside.
There are a range of interesting activities for all ages. Leisure lakes which offer excellent sun bathing, swimming and watersports are the area's local alternative to the seaside. You can also play golf, go wine tasting at the many chateaux, explore the local bastide towns or enjoy the hustle and bustle of the French markets. It is equally an excellent place to take a family holiday with plenty of action to keep the children amused including quad biking, visiting caves and exciting theme parks
Climate and temperature - spring and Autumn in this area of SW France are usually pleasantly warm and the Summer mostly comfortably hot between 25 to 30 degrees being typical summer temperatures (though it can get very hot on occasions). Although drier than the Dordogne, we have magnificent exciting thunderstorms which clear the air after any prolonged period of humidity. For the most part, the air is clear and the evenings pleasantly warm and there is often a gentle breeze to counteract the warmth of the sun. Swimming pools should average 25/30 degrees in normal sunshine.
The Lot Valley in South West France is is an excellent area to take a holiday, with lots to do for all ages!
Well signposted walks, cycling, riding, fishing (daily and weekly licences readily available), tennis, golfing, canoeing and swimming are all widely available and popular in the region.
There are many interesting places to see in this unspoilt area,The Bastide village of Castelsagrat has a good restaurant, a baker, small supermarket, hairdresser and post office. A small vegetable market is held
on Sunday mornings.
Nearby is Valence d'Agen, on the Canal du Midi, is 8km away with four attractive squares and a variety of cafes, restaurants, shops & 3 supermarkets. A large & comprehensive market is held there every Tuesday.
The countryside here is very beautiful and most Bastide towns and villages are well kept and have good restaurants and delightful views. Lauzerte & Montjoi, both hilltop Bastides, Montcuq & Moissac are nearby.
Of the larger towns Moissac is of great architectural interest having a Romanesque abbey and cloister, Agen and Cahors (situated on a loop of the river Lot, which is spanned by the 14th Century ‘Pont Valentre’ a remarkable mediaeval military bridge) & Villeneuve-sur-Lot are some of the lively larger towns to visit.
And don't miss the Chateau at Bonaguil, one of the finest examples of 15th Century architecture - or the magnificent Chateau at Biron.
