Saint Sulpice sur Cele is situated in the Cele River valley, in the department of the Lot, halfway between Cahors and Figeac in the midi Pyrenees. The village is in the Parc Naturel regionel des Causses du Quercy, and lies within an area known as 'le Triangle Noir du Quercy' so named because of the clear night skies, unpolluted by light.
St Sulpice is built on the escarpment, rising from the bottom of the Cele River valley to the foot of the limestone cliffs which shelter the village to the north. These cliffs stretch away southwest, as far as the confluence of the rivers Cele and Le Lot, and northeast, to Figeac. At the top of the village and built into the base of the cliffs are beautiful troglodyte houses and a 12th century castle. the compostello walk passes St sulpice.
The surrounding, beautiful, and unspoilt countryside supports a rich diversity of birds, animals, and insects with the river Cele in particular providing a wonderful environment for dragonflies: a fact that attracted David Attenborough and a BBC wildlife team to make a film called 'Dragonfly Beauty or Beast'.
