At Laboissière you are in the heart of the vale to the south of the river Lot, with medieval bastide villages all around, and miles of quiet countryside with spectacular views. The nearest village of consequence, Lauzerte, is one of 'Les Plus Beau Villages de France', and is renowned for its attractive market square and medieval buildings - and that is before you look over the parapet of the defensive walls to enjoy the views.
Food and drink will never be far away, with the agricultural landscape growing a wide range of crops including sunflowers, nuts, soft fruit, melons and traditional crops. There are also several vineyards and wineries in the area, particularly as you travel north towards the River Lot, and many are open for tastings and direct purchase.
Most villages and towns have at least a weekly market where producers are keen to sell excellent fresh produce of all kinds, and few can resist these: Being held early in the morning, almost inevitably a trip to the market will include the boulangerie for the freshest most delicious bread.
There is plenty of history and natural history to explore, and there are water parks at Montcuq and Montaigu de Quercy with safe bathing areas off sandy beaches, boats, bars and restaurants. More adventurous water activities are found along the River Lot, Port Penne near Penne d'Agenais being one of the busier centres.
Walking is well catered for, with the Route de St Jacques de Compostela running nearby, and plenty of information on walking is available from the local tourist information offices and various places online.
Many guests enjoy cycling, with bicyles available to hire in nearby Touffailles, and delivery can also be arranged: See information on this and other leisure facilities locally under the Links menu above.
