From riverside fishing to overhead hang-gliding, the region abounds with opportunities for all tastes and ages.

Each has its own charm and repertoire of year-round leisure and sports activities. This is also an ideal place to stay and branch out from, located half-way from Bordeaux and Toulouse. A 2-hour drive takes you to the Atlantic coast at or the Pyrenees summits, while 3 hours brings you to to the Mediterranean. There’s so much to see and do in Lot-et-Garonne that the combinations of sites and activities are practically infinite, and infinitely pleasurable. Here is a selection of some of the more popular leisure activities.
Clairac is a small town that boasts 6 restaurants, shops and all necessary amenities including a Market every Thursday morning.
Agen - 30 mins - situated on the river Garonne, a large town with art galleries, wonderful cathedral, many historic sites and Market.
Villeneuve-sur-Lot - 20 mins - Before visiting Villeneuve, climb
up to the medieval village of Pujols to get a stunning overall view of this low
lying Bastide, built in 1264 on both banks of the river Lot. Then enter the town
itself through the belfried North gate with its rose-red great tower and you’re
straight into the gentle bustle of the Bastide streets, still as lively as they’ve
been throughout the centuries. Visit the four ranges of arcades squaring up to the
central fountain in the Place Lafayette to feel the sense of permanence, of solidity
and protection the Bastide dwellers must have felt. Down by the river, the houses
seem to bury their foundations in the waters by the Pont Vieux, originally the twin
to Cahors’ three-towered Valentré bridge, until the central pillar collapsed beneath
the floodwaters, a fault of engineering that Richelieu rightly blamed on the English
who built the bridge in the 13th century. The new Musée de la Vallée du Lot is well
worth a visit for those who want to get a global view of the river Lot’s long course
to the Garonne.
Sight seeing - An inexhaustive review of Lot-et-Garonne’s attractions would certainly include Agen's Museum; Henri IV’s Nérac Castle; the Lot, Garonne and Baïse rivers; Bonaguil Castle; Armagnac tours; Bordeaux vineyards; the snail museum at Gavaudun; Llama farms; and probably the only church to boast a stained-glass mermaid in the village fortress of Larressingle which also has a fascinating display of replica medieval war machines.
The area has many more medieval and historic places to visit as well as tourist attractions and activities. We would be more than happy to assist and advise you in the places to visit according to your interests and party.
