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, such as Lauzerte, or enjoy the hustle and bustle of the French markets, such as the Sunday morning market at Montcuq. 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.
