La vallée du lot

The Lot Valley

From Cajarc to Puy-l'Evêque, the Lot offers its most beautiful course. Cliffs like canyons, frolicking meanders, hilltop villages and fierce châteaux.Let yourself be carried away along its long blue ribbon...One of the most beautiful valleys in France, ideally situated halfway between the Dordogne and the Gorges du Tarn.
The Lot valley is very mineral, with cliffs sometimes over 200m high. Whether by car or on foot, it's a unique experience.

The Lot Valley will surprise you with its varied landscapes, its generous and gastronomic cuisine, and its happy and friendly inhabitants...The Lot, which in ancient French or Occitan, heirs to the Gallic toponym, is called Olt, as evidenced by the names rive d'Olt or pays d'Olt, rises on the southern slopes of the Goulet mountain in Lozère (48) at an altitude of around 1,300 m, in an area of peat bogs, and flows into the Garonne in the Lot-et-Garonne département.
