Labastide-Murat is one kilometre away. It is the centre of the Parc Naturel Regional and is a large thriving village with a market on every other Monday and a Sunday farmers' market in the summer months, with an excellent supermarket, butcher, boulangerie, pharmacy, florist, bank with ATM, hotel, bars and restaurants. The village is midway between the Dordogne and Lot rivers. The towns of Cahors, Gourdon and Gramat are 25 minutes away by car, with Sarlat, Figeac and Montauban that bit further.
The Lot is one of the most unspoilt departments in South West France. It is a relatively little known region, rich in history and tradition, which is reflected in the distinctive architecture and beautiful stone buildings. There are many of 'les plus beaux villages de France' in the locality - St Cirque-Lapopie being one of them; and many beautiful examples of the 'bastide' towns remain. Cuzac is on the pilgrim route to Santiago de Compostela, and numerous walking trails exist for exploration on foot or on bikes. The beautiful rivers of the Lot, Dordogne and Célé meander through the Lot countryside and provide excellent canoeing, passing through beautiful villages where the local produce can be sampled. The area is particularly renowned for its foie gras, duck and truffles, with the local 'black' wine of Cahors. World-famous prehistoric sites of Lascaux, Les Eyzies and Peche-Merle are all within striking distance and well worth a visit.
For children there are themed parks - please refer to the brochures and to the information on our website (see below).
