The River Lot offers lots of opportunities for sailing and canoeing, including
Temple sur Lot, Villeneuve, Trentels and Montayral.
River trips and strolling through the unspoilt local countryside - with its many
great spots for a picnic along the way, villages and the Bastides; medieval
fortified towns for which the area is famous. We would recommend; Tournon
d'Agenais, Monflanquin, Castelmoron sur Lot, Casseneuil, Temple sur Lot and Montaigu de Quercy.
In particular, Penne d'Agenais has spectacular views over the River Lot and
enjoyable - if steep, walks through its narrow lanes filled with artisan shops and fine restaurants, notably L'air du Temps and the stylish 'La Maison sur La Place'.
The beautiful basilica, 'Notre Dame de Peyragude' is a landmark well worth a visit. Pujols le Haut, is one the 'plus beaux villages de France' and is just 20 mins away approximately by car and plays host to excellent farmers and antiques market on Sunday mornings.
