HOLIDAY HOMES TO RENT IN THE LOT, MIDI-PYRENEES.


Welcome to our selection of holiday homes to rent in Lot, France.

The rural department of Lot is located in the south-west of France, in the Midi-Pyrenees region. Bordered on the south by the foothills of the Pyrenees and on the north by the Dordogne valley, this area is known for its outstanding natural beauty, good quality local produce and relaxed way of life. There are plenty of picturesque towns and villages within the Lot region, along with some of the most important prehistoric sites in France.

The main town of Cahors is situated on the River Lot, which gives the area its name. Most famous for the 14th century Valentre bridge, which has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is the only bridge in the world with three towers. The best view of the bridge, with its impressive arches, is from the river itself, and there are several boat trips a day during the summer months. The rest of Cahors is also worth exploring, from the medieval old town to the pleasant public gardens, lined by grander private houses.

Head east from Cahors and you will find yourself in the lush, green Lot valley. Some boat trips from Cahors will take you further down this peaceful waterway, into the open countryside, where you can relax as you watch the scenery pass by. The valley is full of impressive cliff top villages, castles and vineyards, producing a strong red wine. For the chance to try some other examples of local produce, go west from Cahors to the towns of Figeac and Souillac, where you can buy local cheese, meat and the region’s most famous speciality. These towns also hold night markets in the summer; however the winter months are the best time to sample the black truffles, usually in the smaller village markets at Lalbenque and Limogne-en-Quercy.

The south-west of France is well known for its prehistoric cites and caves, and the Lot region is no exception. In the south, the Pech-Merle cave features a collection of impressive prehistoric art, as well as spectacular natural features. There is a museum attached to the cave, which provides more information about prehistoric life in the region and the artwork visitors have just enjoyed. Further north is the Padirac chasm, a large natural cave that opened up when the roof collapsed. It is completely safe now and open to visitors throughout the year. The highlight of the visit is undoubtedly the boat trip along an underground river, through a number of lakes, until you reach the impressive Salle du Grand Dome, with its 90-metre high ceiling.
