The surroundings are mainly grassed, with trees and shrubs around, and a number of flowering plants carefully maintained make Le Pouch a peaceful spot in an idyllic position, ideal for a restful holiday in the countryside.

Around the Area…..

Le Pouch is ideally located in quiet countryside, but within a short distance there is an arterial country road enabling reasonably direct access to the towns of the Garonne valley (Agen,Valence d’Agen, Moissac) or the historic towns of the Quercy Blanc ( Montaigu de Quercy, Roquecor, Lauzerte, Montcuq)
The towns of the Lot valley (Villeneuve sur Lot, Fumel, Prayssac and Cahors) can also be easily reached,

The countryside is a large food basket, with vineyards nearby including Vin du Tsar and Domaine du Garinet which are both open for tastings and direct purchase of excellent wines and other foods. As you travel among the acres of sunflowers you will also see soft fruit orchards, many producing plums for ‘Pruneaux d’Agen’, vegetables and nuts. Many of these are available direct from producers at markets which are held on most days of the week somewhere close by.

Much of this produce is also used by restauranteurs, and a variety of restaurants can be found to suit all tastes: Food is generally of high quality, and prices very reasonable. Local specialities include delicious duck dishes.

Those who enjoy venturing into history will also be very well catered for in this area with numerous ‘bastide’ villages dating from medieval times, some of which are perched on fortified hilltops. All make interesting visits: Lauzerte and Pujols are both listed among ‘Les Plus Beaux Villages de France’,  Villeneuve-sur-Lot and Cahors both had Roman activity, and there are more medieval villages along the River Lot, including Puy L’Eveque, built cleverly into a very steep slope above the river.

To the north of the River, Lot is some spectacular scenery, and there are two chateaux of note, Chateau de Bonaguil and Chateau Biron both open to visitors and making interesting visits.

All along the River Lot, there are water-based activities including boat hire and river cruises. The nearest points to Le Pouch will be at ‘Port Penne’ near Penne d’Agenais and Fumel.

There is also a water park at Montaigu de Quercy, about 6km away, with a large beach area, lifeguard patrolled (in season) swimming, pedalo and boat hire, and some bars and restaurants.
