If you just can't sit around on your holiday then there are plenty of ways to be active here in the Lot department.

One of the best ways to get to know the area is on foot. The area is criss-crossed with a network of walking trails offering a variety of landscapes and distances - anything from a short stroll to a complete day's walking. Some walks start from the house or are just a short journey by car.

We are keen walkers and much of our spare time is spent discovering new local trails and paths. We have selected some of our favourites to provide our guests with Tailored Walking Holiday Packages. These packages include accommodation and meals together with maps and fully researched written descriptions for each walk. For more information take a look at our Walking Holdays section and to see more about the surrounding area take a look at our section on the countryside and wildlife.


If you want to bring your bikes or hire them locally then the VTT trails are well marked and range from challenging off-road trails to pleasant rides along small roads that are virtually traffic-free.

For those who would prefer someone else to take the strain then there are a number of horse riding stables including "western" style and if water is your theme then why not hire a canoe and float down the spectacular Dordogne river valley? The Lac du Tolerme which is only 10 minutes from the house is where you might find us on a warm summer's afternoon. The lake is the perfect place to cool off with a swim and has excellent facilities during the summer months.

The Golf du Montal just outside St Cere has a good 9 hole course and is close to one of the top restaurants in the Lot. Slightly further away is top championship golf course near Aurillac.

If you prefer a proper swimming pool there is an excellent water park locally with a very large outdoor pool with slides, sun loungers and a cafe where you can relax and soak up the sun. You will also find exercise courses such as the one located around the Lac du Tolerme which combines a 4km route with various exercise stations, all located in beautiful countryside.
