The Owner Recommends

Restaurants

Villa Smerelda and la Bastide d' Elora in Pujols. la Cantine in Villeneuve sur lot.There are many restaurants in the area but these are our favourite ones.

Bastide villages

Pujols is listed as one of the most beautiful villages in France. It has a weekly Sunday morning market, full of fresh local produce. We like the local melons from Jerome Marty who lives just down the road from us.The walnut cake is delicious. During July and August there is a Wednesday night market where you can try all different types of cuisine, while enjoying live entertainment. In fact if you wanted you could go to a different village every night, like Casseneuil, Fongrave and Villeneuve sur lot, to mention just a few.

Agen.

Only twenty five minutes by car Agen is famous for its goyas, fine arts museum, classic architecture and yearly prune festival. It has a cathedral, many shops and restaurants. Also there is an enormous canal bridge with 23 arches spanning the River Garonne, which links the mediterranean to the atlantic ocean. The old pump house has been turned in to a bicycle themed cafe, a lovely place to visit, walk or hire bicycles.
