Our ancient region of Aquitaine is steeped in history with many churches and castles to visit. Some of these places hold re-enactments and music shows during the summer. Medieval castles are major tourist attractions at Duras, Bonaguil, Biron and Monbazillac. Romanesque churches are another feature of the region and there isa fine abbey at Cadouin, with a good restaurant, pottery and market hall next to it.

The region of the Lot et Garonne is one of the most beautiful in south west France. The River Lot flows through a stunning landscape from Cahors and Figeac in the East across to Bordeaux in the West, hillsides, valleys and stunning countryside offering one of the largest orchards in Europe with its varied fruit and wines that benefit from the mild climate.

Situated further south than the more well-known region Dordogne, the Lot offers a more peaceful setting for relaxed holidays away from the crowds, even in the summer season. The popular wine-growing areas of Bordeaux, Bergerac and Monbazillac are within easy reach where many of the vineyards are open for visits and tastings.

There are different local markets to visit every day of the week where you can buy fresh fruit, vegetables and local delicacies such as Foie gras, cured sausages and cheeses. In the summer there is also a weekly 'producers markets' and night markets at Duras, Eymet Villereal, Monflanquin, to name a few. Here you can sit outside and join the locals feasting on a variety of dishes and wines bought direct from the producers. Libos has a market every Thursday morning.

There is a strong gastronomic tradition in this area, eating out is part of the French way of life. Lunch time is the best value with three course lunch menu from around 12 euros including wine. Haute cuisine for gourmets, is also available and can be found locally, including the 1 Michelin star restaurant in Pujols (40 mins). There are a couple of great restaurants in Gavaudun. Just 10 min drive away you can sit in one of the two restaurants at the foot of the stunning Chateau de Bonaguil.
