Bicycle hire is readily available : In the north of the Lot-et-Garonne, there are five signed bycicle tracks varying between 50 and 100 km in length.
Adjacent to the River Lot, there is a flat bicycle track covering 80 km. But for the adventurous bikers, they can discover for themselves many other new and beautiful tracks.

Climbing, flying, floating ...

For the adventurist, 'Parc en Ciel' offers harnessed walking on ropes providing a walking track amongst the treetops.
The area also provides many other exciting activities including go-carting, quad, tyrolienne, caving, ultra light flying and hot-air ballooning.

Golf playing, horse riding...

Markets and festivals

For a more relaxed outing, you can hop on board a tourist train trip and meander amongst one of the many markets.
During the summer months there are many festivals including singing, music, dance, theatre, historic recreations, 'ripalhous', food fairs of local producers markets, bodegas (village celebrations), and even a corrida. All well within striking distance.


For wine tasting, its all there !! Cancon, where the old vinyards have been replaced with plum and hazelnut orchards, is the springboard to a rich wine region including Monbazillac, Bergerac, Buzet, Duras en Marmande, and a little further including Cahors, Saint-Emilion and Bordeaux.
