Boat rental in Luzech : the promise of a fascinating holiday

The town of Luzech is a ver­i­ta­ble penin­su­la, sur­round­ed by the waters of the Lot, on which you’ll sail dur­ing your water­way cruise. It cer­tain­ly mer­its a full explo­ration from one side to the oth­er. The medieval town har­bours many reminders of its glo­ri­ous past — you can’t miss the beau­ti­ful Goth­ic church of Saint Pierre, along with Château Camy, anoth­er of its must-sees.

Make sure you also pass by the town’s wine cel­lars before embark­ing on your house­boat, and treat your­self to a viti­cul­tur­al trip, tast­ing one of the region’s rich­es : Cahors wine. You can then pick up your licence-free rental boat and set off on one of France’s most beau­ti­ful water­ways : the Lot. Head for Cahors if you opt for a week­end trip or extend the enchant­ment by embark­ing for a week, which will give you the oppor­tu­ni­ty to delve deep­er into the tra­di­tions and mys­ter­ies of this endear­ing region.

A voyage of relaxation and gastronomy : your waterway cruise on the Lot

The well-pre­served wild nat­ur­al set­ting will be one of your most beau­ti­ful mem­o­ries of this water­way cruise, with its series of cliffs, green forests and steep plains. Along with your friends or fam­i­ly, you’ll enjoy trav­el­ling through the beau­ti­ful locks, which are man­u­al here, with no lock keep­er. Enjoy these expe­ri­ences by get­ting involved in the manoeu­vring oper­a­tions. You’ll also have plen­ty of ideas for breaks or excur­sions, and will quick­ly reach the fas­ci­nat­ing city of Cahors, where you’ll be able to stop for sev­er­al hours. The Valen­tré bridge, a for­ti­fied bridge over the Lot, is still the town’s emblem. Mar­vel at the Bar­bi­can, along with the town’s oth­er medieval for­ti­fi­ca­tions. You’ll also be able to take the oppor­tu­ni­ty to fill up on sup­plies, vis­it­ing the local mar­ket stalls. Foie gras, duck con­fit, Quer­cy lamb… there’ll be no short­age of region­al spe­cial­ties to make your water­way cruise a real gas­tro­nom­ic jour­ney.
