The Lot Valley

South of the Dordogne lies the Lot valley with Cajarc located between Figeac & Cahors. The countryside is unspoilt with cracking views just about everywhere you point your camera.

We stayed with our friends Martin & Simon who run Moulin de Lantouy A peaceful rural setting with several Gites just the other side of the river from Cajarc. We stayed in ‘Le Moulin’ which sleeps 6 and is very well appointed.

The ‘Gouffre de Lantouy’ or source of the river, which is a tributary of the Lot is nearby. Water emerges from limestone caves and is very popular with divers as its quite deep.

There are plenty of places to visit with Limogne en Quercy having a market & the medieval village of Saint-Cirq-Lapopie being one of the prettiest villages in France.
