The department of Lot is a land of beautiful landscapes and dramatic gorges, slow moving rivers, beautiful villages such as Puy-l’Eveque and Rocamadour, and the vineyards of Cahors - other 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 Lot & Quercy region in the South of France covers three French departments (Lot, Lot et Garonne, Tarn et Garonne) and is what remains of the ancient province of Quercy, to the south-east of the Périgord (Dordogne).
Situated between Bordeaux and Toulouse the area experiences hot dry summers and cold dry winters. The region has a micro climate that is drier and warmer than the regions to the north (Dordogne, Limousin), and is characterised by warm late Autumn months.
The Lot department is proud of its fine, local produce - from the truffles, to confit of duck & goose, to dark Cahor wines and the goat’s cheese of Rocamadour - you won’t be disappointed.
Three rivers flow through this department, the Dordogne to the north, the Cele in the centre and the Lot to the south. The first two rivers are generally given over to kayaking and canoeing. Boat trips are more popular on the Lot and provide an enjoyable way to see the villages and vineyards that drop down into the river.
Worth visiting are the medieval centres of Cahors & Figeac and the 25,000-year-old prehistoric caves (Grotte de Pech-Merle) near Cabrerets.
