Whether you prefer to enjoy the peace and quiet of this rural area, or prefer the bustle of a more cosmopolitan area, you will find plenty to please you.
There are numerous pretty medieval bastide villages to enjoy with their narrow streets, picturesque houses, sheltered arcades and village squares where is hard not to stop for a coffee or a glass of something refreshing, and watch the world go by. The pace of life is so different when you are on holiday! Penne d'Agenais, Lauzerte, Beauville and Montjoi are particular favourites. For a day-trip, a visit to Cahors with its 14th century Pont Valentré, and then to the gorgeous village of Saint Cirq Lapopie, perched on the cliffside above the River Lot.
For a livelier day out, head to the exciting city of Toulouse for excellent shopping and perhaps a trip to the Space Museum or a tour of the Airbus factory.
