The Lot
“Roc de Latge” is located in the Department of the Lot in the region Occitanie (formerly Midi-Pyrénées). The department borders Dordogne in the North-west and the Aveyron in the South-east. It is one of the least populated departments in France and has an area as large as the County of Norfolk, but with about the same number of inhabitants as the city of Northampton.

With more than four hundred “monuments historique classes”, castles, fortresses and other historical locations, the department Lot is of historical importance.

The beautiful caves of Gouffre de Padirac and Peche Merle, Rocamadour (after Lourdes the most visited French place of pilgrimage), and the picturesque Saint-Cirq-Lapopie belong to various top ten lists of most visited highlights in the region.

As we are located on the border, you can reach many vared of tourists attractions (within an hour) in both Departments of the Lot and the Dordogne.

Coming back from an active and full day, you will come “home” to the Lot where you drive towards tranquilty.

Food and beverages
During every season there are lots of organised fun events in the surrounding villages. The charming vide-greniers (flea markets), but also the internationally known Blues Festival of Cahors (https://www.cahorsbluesfestival.com), or the movie festival of Gindou (http://www.gindoucinema.org).

Of course there are also many options on a culinary level to be found and suited to everyone´s budget. Not only in Cahors, the capital of the Lot, but spread throughout the region. Especially in the summertime there are the “marchés nocturnes” (evening markets), where local producers sell their products that can be eaten at the location.

Long tables with seats are made available and with live French chansons being sung which you can enjoy, while having a delicious beverage. And unforgettable evenings.

The Valley of Lot is planted with Malbec vines, a grape type locally known as Cot, which forms the base for the full, deep red Cahors wines which go perfectly with the local dishes, of which the canard (duck), foie gras and the truffle are the most well-known.
