A brief post.
Just back from a trip to the Lot Valley area of France. Stayed in a friend’s house near the beautiful medieval town of Puy L’Eveque :-
Hot and sunny all the stay, managed a few walks but mainly enjoying the deep red Cahor wines and food.
Too hot for climbing at this time of year although there are a lot of local crags which I’ve visited in the cooler months. Recommended!
Several GR routes traverse the area, the scenery is not mountainous but varied countryside with lots of well tended vineyards.
