Lot Valley Cycling 9 Days
Our tour to the Lot Valley takes you to La France Profonde, or “Deep France” — a hidden land of stunning beauty and a surprise at every turn. It is away from the tourist crowds, but an astonishing number of internationally acclaimed sites dot this quiet landscape in southwest France. In its January 2001 issue, Travel & Leisure declared the Lot Valley one of the 100 “fabulous places (and things)” of 2001!
