Labastide enjoys an enviable hillside location with a south-westerly aspect overlooking an irrigation lake in the valley below, and Beauville on the hill opposite.
With 2ha (approx 5 acres) of the garden to enjoy there is ample outdoor space for energetic guests to exercise and play games or to find a quiet shaded spot away from the rest of the group.
The rolling country around Beauville provides plenty of opportunity for cycling and walking with an ever-growing number of well-signed routes available.
The village of Beauville has a great reputation as a centre for the performing arts with an annual festival in July each year, and other events throughout the year. It also has one of the finest viewpoints from a vantage point known as 'Le Jardin des Indes' with a curious background story on the display panels at the garden.
The countryside around is teeming with food producers and weekly markets held in most towns offer the finest of produce direct from the producers, or you can visit farms producing prunes, honey, foie gras, oils and of course wine: Within a few kilometres you are into the Cahors AOC with many wineries open for tasting and direct sales.
There are many medieval hilltop villages dotted around the area, each with its own character and tales to tell, and during the summer joining the locals at an evening market or 'marché gourmand' makes a special uniquely French experience.
Further afield there are the Lot., Garonne and Dordogne rivers to explore, or for the adventurous, the Aveyron Gorge offers climbing and white water canoeing experiences. The limestone area around Cahors has many caves that can be visited, some with evidence of the earliest known human habitation.
City experiences can be found at Toulouse, just over an hour away for at Bordeaux, the world wine capital, about 90 minutes away.
Closer by is the UNESCO World Heritage site of L'Abbaye St Pierre and the cloisters at Moissac near the confluence of the Tarn and the Garonne, and the view overlooking the river and the vale of the Garonne from nearby Boudou is absolutely breathtaking and well worth a diversion.
