The countryside in Lot-et-Garonne offers great scope for walkers and cyclists. It is an excellent location for fishing, rowing and canoeing and guests are well placed for boating on the River Lot or not far away on the Canal and River Garonne abound with opportunities for all tastes and ages.

For the avid walker there are 283 rambles clearly marked out using local lanes, tracks and footpaths. The rambles range from easy to difficult and from 5 to 25+kms in length. The undulating countryside, often likened to Tuscany, affords lots of outstanding landscapes and charming hamlets. Each walk is detailed in a leaflet with a clear map and these can be downloaded from the internet. Guests can borrow a laminated copy of any ramble they choose to do. Because we love walking in the countryside we can offer guided walks by arrangement.

Cycling is popular in this area. There are numerous clearly marked off-road routes using tracks and bridle-ways for the more intrepid.

There is certainly much here to occupy the enthusiastic photographer, bird-watcher, botanist or landscape painter. We even have an airport nearby for Ultralight aircraft (ULM).

  • I have known Dot for 15 years, first as the wife of a colleague and then as a friend. She is an incredibly warm and hospitable person who makes people immediately feel relaxed and welcome in her home, which, by the way, is a beautifully renovated 'maison de maitre'.
    Dot is a fabulous cook (how does she stay so slim?) who makes full use of fresh local ingredients and inspired by her years living in Spain and her travels in Morocco. Her husband Jonathan is also a warm and interesting person and a great host. I recommend a say at Maison Bleuet wholeheartedly. You will have an interesting and relaxing stay
