Lot river at Puy l'Eveque

The Area:

Prèniac is situated in the department of Lot, in the heart of the Quercy countryside, which is bordered by Corrèze to the north, Aveyron and Cantal to the east, Tarn-et-Garonne to the south, Dordogne in the north and Lot-et-Garonne to the west and is one of eight departments in the Midi-Pyrénées, the largest region in France.

The Lot 'the real France', lying a little to the south of the Dordogne is a picturebook landscape of small villages, rolling hills and valleys with fields of sunflowers, tobacco, melons and vines.

The river Lot winds its way through limestone gorges, which are dotted with caves through some of the oldest vineyards in France.
