The Lot - Things to do
and places to visit

There are caves in the Lot, that are open to the public. Take a boat ride on an underground river at the Gouffre de Padirac, or explore the marvels of nature on foot. The nearby 'Plus Beaux Villages de France' of Autoire, Loubressac and Carennac exude mediaeval charm overlooking the Dordgone river valley.

In summer, there are local farmers markets selling all kinds of wonderful foods, fabric and crafts. The day the market comes to town is quite an event for the local villagers.

Rocamadour is a wonderful day out. After climbing the hundreds of steps (or take the elevator) to explore the cathedral and chapel of the Black Virgin perched on the top of a cliff, you can enjoy a fabulous meal at one of the restaurants below. Shopping is plentiful and if your feet hurt, there is even a little train that will take you from one end of Rocamadour village to the other.

In addition to the 'Plus Beaux Villages de France' and Rocamadour, nearby the Châteaux and fortified castles scatter the Lot countryside, waiting to be explored. The Lot and Dordogne valleys are perfect for walking and cycling. Canoeing down the Rivers Lot, Célé and Dordogne is available for the more adventurous.
