    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The area of Lauzerte has a lot to offer to foreign visitors. It is a historical stage on the Compostella de Santiago trail. The village itself hosts a number of cafés and restaurants as well as bakers, supermarket, chemist, public library and many handicraft workshops. It is considered one of the most beautiful village in France. It is at the heart of living traditions and history.

    The area is ideal for hikers, bicycle rides, fishing in beautiful landscapes and nature.

    You can experience trekking with our donkeys as pack animals and wonderful companions. We'll be happy to let you learn the ropes and how to look after them.

    We enjoy cooking traditional French cuisine with local products and we love food from around the world. We are used to vegetarians.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Toulouse airport 1h15mn drive from our place. Moissac train station is 20mn drive. Montauban TGV is 35mn drive. Unfortunately, public transport is not well-developed. So having a car is definitely a plus to visit the region. There are buses to Moissac twice a week. We can also drive you to the train station if you fancy a trip to the city.
