Luzech, in the heart of the vineyard of Cahors

It is in the heart of the vineyard of Cahors, in the Lot Valley, where you will find the small town of Luzech and its medieval vestiges. In this landscape of rivers and plateaus, you will appreciate the calm and benefit fully from nature, by following for example, the botanical nature trail around the Lot Valley.
