Visit

A mill

It took courage and tenacity for the millers to turn these mills... not too fast. It takes as much today for the restore and open them to your curiosity.

Volunteers put them back in working order. The miller no longer sleeps, he opens the doors of his mill to you and shares his story and his passion with you.

Small heritage, churches

Puy-l'Eveque

35km from Cahors

Feet in the water, head in the clouds and heart in the vineyard, Puy-l'Évêque has inscribed its wine-growing and river history in its architecture, from the slipway which evokes its activity as a commercial port to the stately tower at the top of the rocky outcrop.

Limogne

Montcuq-en-Quercy White

35km from Cahors

It's obvious, Montcuq rose to fame with its mere name, but the village deserves your attention for many more reasons. We like to think that the village is inspiring, since many artists and craftsmen have settled there.

18km from Cahors

Around Lalbenque as in Limogne, the small rural heritage is very rich and contributes directly to the beauty of the landscapes in which it makes sense. The village is famous for its winter truffle market: a real experience to live!

Castelnau-Montratier

32km from Cahors

A traditional country house with its central covered square and arcades, its eccentric church and its checkered plan, made up of straight and parallel streets with houses and gardens. The inhabitants and the artists dress it with their decorations every summer.
