Lot River

South West of France

Savor the Lot River’s enchanting natural beauty

Trees crowd the shores of the scenic Lot River, giving way to medieval hilltop towns, lush vineyards and sections of cliffs that create an almost wilderness feel. The river makes a unique venue for a barge vacation in France. Outdoor pursuits like cycling, swimming and fishing go hand in hand with fine dining, browsing in open-air markets and sightseeing at historic châteaux!
