The Lot-et-Garonne department is found in south-west France - south of the Dordogne and north of Gascony. It forms part of the Aquitaine region of France.
To the north it is very close, typically and in appearance to the Dordogne department, and provides easier access to many of the highlights of that region than much of the Dordogne department itself.
It also shares the same landscape as this department - a mixture of woodland and rolling fields.
Villereal was founded in 1269 by Alphonse de Poitiers as a French bastide town. The town was however Occupied by the English during much of the Hundred Years War.
Villereal is a lively, attractive small town, with lots of back streets to explore - the area down from the church is perhaps the best for seeing medieval houses looming over narrow alleys.
The town is unusual in that it has 'real' shops rather than tourist shops, and is active all year around.
One other interesting characteristic of the region around Villereal is the existence of two unusual (and very impressive) types of rural architecture.
You will see both pigeonniers and "maisons à empilage" during your visit - the latter are especially fascinating, with only 50 of these 'dark ages' houses still in existence.
