A stroll through the pretty town of Cahors

Located in the heart of the Lot Valley, Cahors is a great place to stroll. Discover its timeless beauty as you stroll through the historic center, from the Secret Gardens to Saint-Etienne‘s Cathedral, a UESCO World Heritage Site, and the Valentré Bridge.
On Saturday mornings, the cathedral square comes alive with the market, one of the finest in the South-West! After a meal under the covered market or a picnic on the banks of the Lot, board a tour boat for a short cruise with commentary and lock passage!

Mountain biking and hiking from Cahors

During your stay at camping La Plage , outdoor activities are king. Perhaps you’d like to take a scenic hike to the Mont Saint-Cyr viewpoint to admire the panorama of the town and surrounding natural areas. There are two variants: 3.7 km and 5.7 km. From the banks of the River Lot, a beautiful mountain bike circuit allows you to reach the same viewpoint in a more sporting way. An opportunity to combine city exploration and outdoor sports!

Just a few steps from the belvedere, other activities await you, including archery, an orienteering course, an escape game and scooter riding.

Discover the Valentré bridge

A masterpiece of medieval architecture, Pont Valentré is the landmark of Cahors, with its three fortified towers. Built over fifty years ago, it is the stuff of legend. Its architect is said to have made a pact with the devil to complete its construction! A story that will be told to you if you choose to discover the bridge on a guided tour. A cruise on the River Lot will also allow you to admire the structure from the water. The choice is yours: a one-hour cruise or a full-day cruise with meals on board!
