Lot and Garonne is situated in the Aquitaine region in the South West of France. Also known by its historical name of Gascony, the region is one of outstanding natural beauty, steeped in history and benefiting from a warm climate from spring to late autumn.
The region is also known as one of the best, if not the best, gastronomic centres of France and is home to the world famous Fois gras and truffles. Indeed, the immediate locality surrounding the properties is at the heart of the truffle industry in France with the local village of Prayssas being renowned for its annual truffle market. Not surprisingly, the local restaurants are renowned for their cuisine and in particular the use of local produce.
The region boasts 3 main rivers, with the Dordogne in the north, the Lot in the centre and the Garonne towards the south. The property is located in the hills between the Garonne and Lot valleys and therefore boasts some stunning scenery.
The region is blessed with wonderful countryside and historical places of interest, so is ideal for both passive and more active pursuits.
There is an almost endless list of places to visit in the area, from wonderful scenery, ancient villages, beautiful architecture and sites of outstanding natural beauty. Villages and towns
