The Aquitaine / Dordogne / Lot et Garonne region
Lot et Garonne is a department of the region of Aquitaine in southwest France, just south of the Dordogne.
The Lot valley is one of the most fertile areas in France with vineyards, farms and orchards. The area is responsible for the production of most of the plums used in the region's most famous product, Pruneaux D'Agen. This is essentially dried plums using the same process as for dried apricots.
The climate is ideal ,for sunbathing by the pool, picnics in the grounds and BBQs.
The landscape varies from rolling hills to the fertile valley floors. Running through the valleys are rivers bordered by picturesque Bastide towns, many worth visiting.
The Villeneuve Sur Lot area
Activities within easy reach of Aquitaine Gites in France include the more relaxing fishing, horseriding, golf, hot air ballooning and evening markets with entertainment.
If you feel more energetic why not try canoeing, kayaking, hover boats, cycling, go-karting or the water theme park. If you don't suffer from vertigo try the tree top park with activities for children as young as three. We also have a local tenpin bowling alley with pool tables.
The more adventurous amongst you might like to try microlighting with flights available over the apartments.
Those interested in the local food and wine will not be disappointed. There are a number of local farms which run organised tours and tastings including honey, fruit, nut and goat farms. If the farm is not for you there are numerous markets to stroll around, almost one for every day of the week in peak season.
Our local vineyard is only 5 minutes away with a multi language signposted tour of the vineyard explaining what happens to the vines through the seasons.
There are also several towns and villages of interest in the area including Pujols with its vantage point on top of a hill overlooking the Lot valley. It has several excellent restaurants, shops and an art gallery.
Nerac, which is a little further afield, is worth a visit with Henry IV's chateaux and extensive public park with the river Baise running through it. Why not take a picnic and watch the riverboats pass by. Not far from here you can see where the river gets its other name 'the river of steps' with a long run of locks.

Gite was well equipped and had everything we needed for a month's stay. A friendly welcome and amazing birdsong added to the atmosphere. It wasn't warm enough in April to use the pool, but we could see that it was well looked after. The situation is ideal for leisure cyclists, about half a mile from the superb 'voie verte' which links Casseneuil to Villeneuve-sur-Lot on a traffic-free path. The 'veloroute' on either side on quiet, flat country roads gives you as much cycling as you could want. There are also some stunning walks through the fields and orchards and along quiet lanes. The perfect holiday - hope to be back.

This gite was a real find. A quite, peaceful location where the biggest decision you have to make is if you want to go for a swim, or go and pick some fruit to have with lunch. The pool, table tennis, fishing point (at the bottom of the garden), spotting the red squirrels/ king fishers etc and a good selection of board games entertained if we wanted to stay on site. Wonderful evening markets and medieval villages to explore when we wanted to go out. The owners were great hosts, and always on hand if we wanted any help at all, from advice on the best places to go, to making sure the pool was just the right remperature!
