The Quercy Blanc area is situated in the south-western Lot and is often called the ‘Tuscany of France’ thanks to its soft climate and hills covered with vineyards, cypresses and limestone. There are opportunities for walking and cycling to one’s heart’s content. This is a region where you’ll still find the authentic charm and peace of the French countryside. 

The view is only interrupted by fortified limestone villages (bastides) that lie scattered through the landscape. Tournon d’Agenais, Montcuq, Montpezat, Montflanquin and Lauzerte are nearby and are certainly worth a visit. Most of these villages offer a charming weekly market. There are also regular antique and flea markets as well.

In addition, there are excursions to the picturesque valley of the Lot where most of the famous Cahors vineyards are situated. Saux has six vineyards of which Domaine d’Homs is our neighbour. Troniac offers a direct view over these vineyards.

The historical cities of Villeneuve sur Lot, Cahors, Montauban, Moissac en Agen are 30 to 40 km. away. Also Toulouse is within easy reach by motorway (+/- 1h15) for a day trip. The castles and tourist highlights of the Dordogne are an hour to the north and those of the eastern Lot are less than an hour’s journey.

There are restaurants galore, from simple snacks and ‘routiers’ to Michelin star gourmet restaurants.
