Pech d'Auzonne shares its name with a winery which is about 300m from the house, and is run by an Anglo/French couple in conjunction with an organic farm, and wines are usually available to purchase or taste.
The area is in the heart of the Cahors AOC so there are many other vineyards and wineries locally offering tastings: Information can be found under The Area on the menu at the top of this page.
The town of Montcuq, approx 7km / 5 miles away, has a Sunday morning market where a wide selection of fresh produce and other items can be purchased: Many towns and villages have a weekly market, and a list of these is included in The Area information at the house
The whole area abounds with a variety of agricultural and horticultural produce: Apples, pears, plums, peaches, apricots, walnuts and hazelnuts are just some of the things to be seen growing alongside more traditional cereal crops, vegetables and vines. Many of these are used by restaurants in the area, and eating out is generally of high quality and very reasonably priced.
History is plentiful throughout the locality, with Roman and earlier history to be found at Cahors, and the medieval hilltop bastide villages, such as Lauzerte with its magnificent square and medieval buildings, well worth a visit.
Cahors and other points at which the river Lot can be accessed are the starting point for water based activities, and the quiet roads and beautiful scenery invite exploration on foot or by bicycle. To the north of the River Lot is an area of beautiful alndscapes, and with two magnificent chateaux on the skyline, Chateau Biron and Chateau de Bonaguil.
The major regional towns of Agen, Bordeaux and Toulouse are also within reasonable driving distance of Pech d'Auzzone.
