Enjoy fabulous canoeing on the Dordogne and Lot rivers winding through breathtaking valleys and be fascinated by the prehistoric limestone caves and sites with their underground waterways, cave paintings and tales of Neanderthal man.

The local gastronomy on offer at markets, farms, shops and restaurants is infinite. Outdoor reared succulent duck, wild boar, cassoulet, plump garlic, juicy yellow melons, fresh walnuts, the incredibly rich foie gras, numerous other handmade patés and cheeses accompanied by the regional wines of the Lot and the famous full-bodied Cahors reds.

Dutch owners Theo and Ellen Drummen-Nijssen and their children Julie, Wouter and Daan live at Domaine de Montsalvy and are able to recommend everything from supermarkets to restaurants.
