About the Area:
The Lot department is a land of beautiful landscapes of dramatic gorges, slow moving rivers, numerous beautiful villages such as Puy-l'Eveque and Rocamadour, and the vineyards of Cahors.
Other natural highlights included the Upper Dordogne Valley and the Causses du Quercy Regional Natural Park. Largely unspoiled by the passage of time, the Lot department of France is a delight to discover and explore.
The south-east of the department follows the meandering Lot Valley between Figeac and Cahors, and largely forms part of the Regional Natural Park of the Causses de Quercy.
One of the most popular attractions here is the village of Cabrerets, in an impressive cliffside setting, and where you can visit the Pech Merle caves, one of the very few caves in France with prehistoric paintings that remains open to the public.
Travelling along the Lot Valley between Cahors and Fumel you will discover the pretty village of Puy l'Eveque, one of the highlights of this region of France and we highly recommend you visit.
You will see many of the Cahors vineyards along this picturesque stretch of river and there are many other small places of interest close by.
in the north-east of the Lot most visits focus around the three villages classified among the 'most beautiful villages of France.
A short distance east from here the medieval centre of Saint-Cere is also very pleasant, and you can visit the Grottes de Presques caves nearby. The beautiful Montal chateau (a listed French National Monument) should also feature on your list of places to visit close to here.
