THE LOT & GARONNE VALLEYS: GASTRONOMY AND HERITAGE ALONG THE RIVER

Hospitable and steeped in history, these valleys offer a host of cultural, fun and leisure activities for a great holiday experience in the heart of the South West. With Agen prunes, Marmande tomatoes, strawberries, kiwis and the wines of Buzet and Marmande, gastronomy and local produce are part of the identity of this terroir.

Along the Garonne canal and the Baïse, Lot and Garonne rivers, which are largely navigable on a houseboat, choose a style of tourism where you take the time to go from lock to lock to discover the treasures of their heritage. Don’t miss the nearby medieval towns, like Villeneuve-sur-Lot, the largest royal bastide of the region, then visit the bastides of Monflaquin and Monpazier and the village of Pujols le Haut, ranked among “The Most Beautiful Villages of France”. Continuing upstream on the Lot, you’ll discover the Bonaguil castle, one of the most well-preserved and impressive castles in France.

Still further upstream, don’t hesitate to visit the city of Agen and take the opportunity to discover its famous aqueduct over the Garonne. Not far from there, families and thrill seekers will love the attractions at the Walibi South West theme park and Aqualand Agen.
