This walk between the Lendou valley and the plateau offers an interesting contrast between the views of mixed farming practiced by farmers, including that of the Quercy melon, and the Mediterranean vegetation of this corner of Quercy Blanc.
Melons from the Cucurbitaceae family are rarely as bursting with flavor as in Quercy. More than the variety, it seems that it is the terroir that makes the difference. The clay-limestone hillside soils of the south of the Lot benefit from an excellent water retention capacity. In addition, the clay sheets have the ability to transmit mineral elements to the plant, promoting a great richness of perfumes.
Go equipped with suitable shoes and waterproof clothing, protect yourself from the sun, bring water and find out about the weather conditions.
