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.
