A feature of the area generally are the village markets. The current market days are listed on the general area information.

In season there are also evening ‘Marchés Gourmands’ in several local villages where full meals are available to eat picnic style while entertainment continues nearby.
This is also wine country, and tastings can be arranged nearby at Vin du Tsar, near Thézac and Domaine du Garinet at Le Boulvé, as well as with many other local wine producers in the area between the property and the River Lot.
There are many historic villages in the area, with Lauzerte and Pujols being listed among ‘Les Plus Beaux Villages de France’. Many occupy historic hilltop sites with fantastic views and streets lined with historic timbered buildings. Each has its own character to immerse yourself into.
