On the borders of both Lot et Garonne and the Dordogne the location of this gite is perfect for wine lovers, exploring chateau, bike riding. There are so many different things to do that it is difficult to list them. There are a large number of leaflets in the Gite which should give you lots of ideas. We have lived in the area for a few years and are happy to offer advice / ideas and there is of course the local Lauzun tourist office.
The gite is based just 10 minutes walk outside the village of 'Lauzun'.
Lauzun is a pretty village located on the Lot-et Garonne / Dordogne border in the countryside of rural France. It is a small village, but offers all essential services and shops. You will find a patisserie, butchers, grocery shop, restaurant, a couple of bars and the tourist office. The village offers a medieval past and charm in abundance. This is all just a 10 minute walk from the gite.
There is a farmers market each Saturday morning where you can buy fresh produce such as vegetables, cheese, and wine. During the summer there are street parties every other weekend where you can dine in the street and eat meals from the local shops, such as duck, barbecued steak, or moules frites.
Lauzun also has a beautiful lake that sits at the foot of the chateau. The tranquillity of the lake offers perfect relaxation for picnics, and also has a small playground area for children. There are fish in the lake and it is possible to fish there after obtaining a permit from the local shop. There are also tennis courts next to the lake that can be hired.
