Lot-et-Garonne

Lot-et-Garonne is the rural France you always hoped existed - medieval villages and sunflower fields, plum orchards, quiet roads and small farms in gently rolling countryside. The Lot-et-Garonne department, part of the Aquitaine region, is situated in south-west France. Our nearest village is medieval Villeréal with its colorful farmers’ market. Don’t forget the other bastide towns like Monflanquin and Monpazier, and the impressive castle of Chateau de Biron. The famous Dordogne-area, with its caves, castles and prehistoric sites, is right next door.

Dordogne

Land of prehistory and history. Land of emotions and the art of living. Castles, caves, fortified villages and medieval towns, classified villages, abbeys and monasteries, fortified churches. Gastronomy, vineyards.
 (Bergerac, Pécharmant, Monbazillac).The valley of the Dordogne has been added as a reserve to the UNESCO programme of Man and Biosphere in 2012.
