Canoeing and kayaking holidays taking advantage of the self catering Lot chateaux and gites are best located on the banks of the Dordogne and Cele Rivers, whilst the River Lot is the base for a vast array of boat trips which allow you to discover the villages and sights of the department from an alternative point of view.

The rich medieval heritage and ancient painted caves of Grotte de Peche-Merle make Lot a dream location for historians and those with an interest in the development of south west France. Nowhere have I found a natural site as intriguing as Gouffre de Padirac; a collapsed cave which has formed an enormous crater.

The kitchen, toilet and bathroom are basic, but remember the place was built at the same time as the castle. Both Christiane and Bernard are lovely people and made us feel very welcome. The views are fantastic.
