Boating holidays on the River Lot

Rent a boat on the River Lot and you will be sailing into the heart of one of the most fascinating and wild regions of France. Cliffs and gorges, caves and dolmens await you along the winding green waters. You handle the locks yourself; which will bring back memories of the work and pace of life of times gone by.

The timeless old villages of the Quercy, the alleyways, the mossy red roofs, St-Cirq-Lapopie like an "impossible rose in the night" as André Breton saw it, simply add to the charm of the sublime cruise.

The Lot is also a gourmet's delight. The "black-wine" of Cahors which created the city's wealth in the Middle Ages, the foie gras and the truffle are all part of the journey, as are swimming and horseback riding.
