Active holidays or relaxation in the Lot

La Truite Dorée ... The ideal starting point for many hikes and excursions

By staying at La Truite Dorée, you are in the Lot valley, in the heart of the Causses Regional Natural Park. Classified as a Grand Site d'Occitanie with its vineyards, villages and grandiose landscapes, the Lot valley offers remarkable panoramas made of circuses, cliffs, as well as the meanders of the Lot ... Alternatively the causses and valleys punctuate the landscape whose singularity invites contemplation and rejuvenation.

The time of a stopover for the night or of a stay, the amateurs of pretty excursions appreciate the geographical situation of the Truite Dorée, at the intersection of the GR 46 and the GR 36 with the possibility of going towards the very picturesque medieval village of Saint-Cirq-Lapopie on the side of a cliff (20km) or towards Cahors with its Pont Valentré and its vineyard (15 km).

From the hotel, two very pleasant little walks:

- The Gallo-Roman Aqueduct, located above the village, rises to a height of 9 m over a distance of 27 m, still supported by a solid wall backing onto the cliff.

- The Chateau des Anglais, conceals a cave closed by a shelter under the rock, which at the time allowed the local population to shelter in the event of an enemy attack.

Further on, by car, you can reach Figeac, classified City of Art and History (45km) and the famous Rocamadour site which is only 50km away.

You will see, there is no shortage of ideas for visits and activities.

We provide you with a rich and varied documentation on the whole region, including maps and multiple suggestions for discovering the Lot on foot, by bike, on horseback ...

Our entire team will be happy to guide and advise you in your discovery.

These restored residences bear witness to the wealth of the town, which traded with all of France and the major Mediterranean ports.

Birthplace of Jean-François Champollion, decipherer of hieroglyphics and founder of Egyptology, Figeac pays tribute to him in a museum dedicated to writings from all over the world.

The PATH of HALAGE

Stroll along the Lot river, in a magnificent setting, which will take you from the port of Bouziès to the foot of St Cirq Lapopie (or the other way round). From the towpath, the "gabarres" (flat-bottomed boats) were pulled in convoy by men or draught animals.

At the height of the Ganil lock, the cliff falls steeply into the river, forcing men to dig the limestone rock of the cliff with the sole force of their arms in 1845 for almost 1km.

It is embellished with a 30m long bas-relief, sculpted in 1985 by the Toulouse artist Daniel MONNIER. It evokes his representation of the river and its environment: fauna, flora, rocks, fossils and whirlpools.
