The quality of towns and villages here gives the Dordogne a good run for its money! It possesses some real gems, several of which are considered to be the prettiest villages in the whole of France, such as Cordes-sur-Ciel, Puy l’Eveque or our personal favourite St Cirq-Lapopie.  No visit to Lot-et-Garonne can be complete without spending at least some time in one or other of these!


Description: Beauville is a delightfully situated bastide village with origins in the 16th century. The village square is beautifully designed with the shops framed within covered archways. There are several walks recommended by the tourist office including a walk around the walls and some further afield.

Location: Just off the D215 about 25km north east of Agen.

Our recommendations: For a beautiful walk, follow the trail around the Lac du Gandaille near Engayrac.

For the children: There are several lakes in the area offering canoeing and swimming.
