How to arrive at The Old Distillery in the Lot

Where is the Lot and Quercy? A Perfect Holiday Destination For You.

The Lot sits within Quercy, an ancient land of hills and valleys, rivers and overhanging precipices. This area of outstanding natural beauty is characterised by its oak and chestnut forests, its vineyards and farms experiences hot dry summers and cold dry winters, with warm weather late into the Autumn months. It fits between Bordeaux and Toulouse in the South-West of France.

Famous for its gastronomy, this area gives us ducks, geese, foie gras, the black truffle, confits, walnuts, cheeses (cabécou local & from Rocamadour), the magical black wines of Cahors and now saffron. An abundance of this fresh produce is available at the wonderful markets in our nearby villages, and of course, is featured in the many local cafés and restaurants. Every season has its own delights – from the sweet Quercy melons and luscious strawberries in summer, to the wonderfully earthy mushrooms and truffles in Autumn.

You will find in your accommodation an extensive and comprehensive information book, as well as maps, which outlines numerous activities you may enjoy on your holiday.

There is a large grassed area where children are able to enjoy playing in safety.  The Old Distillery in the Lot is surrounded by hedges and has large double gates which lock.

There is ample car parking within the grounds of The Old Distillery in the Lot.

Do come and visit this charming area of France.
