The Midi-Pyrenees region
The location offers something for everyone, whether you want to relax and unwind, or see some local attractions and history of the area. The atmousphere and amazing scenery will certainly help you to relax into the holiday mood. Everyone who stays here comments on the amount of sleep they get, as it is so quiet and relaxing. The attractions are too many to list on one page but there are water parks, golf courses and horse riding facilities nearby. The place is surrounded by local history, castles and weekly events during the summer months (such as a crêpe festival!)
Whether you are looking for a relaxing time to unwind away from the hustle and bustle, or want a bit more excitement like canoeing down the Dordogne, there is something for everyone within easy reach of Masclat. The village of Masclat is located between 3 major towns - Gourdon, Sarlat and Souillac. We are perfectly situated for visiting popular tourist locations within the Lot and Dordogne regions, such as the medieval town of Sarlat, with its twice weekly market, art galleries, exhibitions, cathedral and colourful street life.
The Lot has various towns such as Cahors, which is well worth a visit and well known for the wine that it produces. The Parc Naturel Régional des Causses du Quercy provides plenty of information on the Lot area. You may wish to visit the Water Park at Souillac for a dip in the pool and slide down the flumes and you should try to fit in time to visit the spectacular medieval village of Rocamadour, dramatically sited on a steep rock face - perhaps sample some Rocamadour goats cheese!
If you are interested in local history, you may like to visit the Château Fenelon or Château de Castelnau-Bretenoux. Alternatively you can travel through beautiful countryside and visit some of the most important prehistoric sites in France, the famous cave paintings of Lascaux or visit the spectacular caves in the surrounding area, such as the Gouffre de Padirac, Font-de-Gaume, Les Combarelles and the Grand Roc ... and this is only a sample of the things to do!!
