For your stay in the Lot region our Bed & Breakfast Les Hauts de Sauliès is perfectly located for you to easily access the numerous sports or cultural activities that are offered in the Lot, without forgetting its wine and gastronomy.
You will find in our guide a lot of pratical and touristic information about our guest house and the Lot department.
Here are some "must-seen" destinations during your stay in the Lot region:
Cahors, City of Art and History and Popular tourist Sites in Midi-Pyrénées. The city of Cahors is 20 minutes away from our guest house. Visit the Valentré bridge, the cathedral of Cahors with historical mural paintings and new stained glass windows.
Little trick: think of looking at them from the inside and then from the outside. You will notice a surprise!
Saint Cirq Lapopie, The village of Saint Cirq Lapopie seen from the sky, elected the most beautiful village of France in 2012. It is 20 minutes away from us. Around the village we recommend taking the towpath from Bouzies to get to Saint Cirq Lapopie. The path is 4kms long.
We advise you not to take the first climb to Saint Cirq Lapopie but to continue 500m more towards the lock and the mill. Then you will find another way to Saint Cirq Lapopie.
Pech Merle' cave, 20 minutes away from us, is superb. It is well worth that of Lascaux. The cave paintings are original. When we visit the cave, we are moved because we see traces of Human and we think that people lived here thousands of years ago! It is well worth the trip.
Small tip: in season remember to book your ticket on the internet because there are a lot of people and entries are limited for reasons of conservation.
Rocamadour, medieval and sacred city, high place of pilgrimage in the Dordogne valley in the Lot department, is 50 minutes away from our guest house. It is a village perched on the cliff with its basilica and its castle at the top. There, they worshiped the black virgin protector sailors and the holy Amadour. Once a year in September there are montgolfiades. It is very spectacular.
Padirac's cave, is 10 minutes away from Rocamadour. This chasm created according to the legend by a kick of the drac (Padirac in Occitan means the foot of the drac, a demon) is a geological marvel. That's wonderful.
Small tip: in season, remember to book your ticket on the internet because there are a lot of people.
