Description: Puy L’Evêque is a lovely old town situated alongside one of the many meanders of the river Lot. Worth a detour

Location: 35km west of Cahors on the D911.

Our recommendations: A delightful approach to the town can be made by following the D8 from Cahors on the south side of the river, giving you the chance to stop at one of the innumerable vineyards and châteaux en route for wine tasting.  For more details see our wine section.

For the children: Take a canoe trip on the river.
