Exploring the area around Montcuq-en-Quercy-Blanc, Quercy Region, south of France

Montcuq is in the south of the Lot département, about thirty kilometres from Cahors and a hundred from Toulouse. You might wonder what to do around this small village, which seems to be lost in the Lot countryside... 

If you're staying for a weekend, Montcuq is the ideal place to relax and enjoy nature. Just wander through the narrow streets of the village, stop for an ice cream or a drink on the terrace of a café. In summer, walk down to the lake to cool off in its turquoise waters. All year round, go for a walk and admire the colours of nature.

If you're staying for a few days, why not explore our beautiful region? With its rich heritage, surprising locations and varied outdoor activities, there's something for everyone in the Quercy!

You'll find a small selection below.

Outdoor activities

Local gastronomy

Farmers' markets

Farmers' markets are an excellent way to discover local produce and meet dedicated small-scale farmers.

Sundays in Montcuq, Fridays in Prayssac, Wednesdays and Saturdays in Cahors... So many opportunities to soak up the good humour of the south-west of France and taste the specialities of Quercy: truffles, melon, Rocamadour cheese, pastis, etc.

Cahors wine tasting

We're just a few kilometres from the Cahors vineyards, some of which even produce organic wine.

Many wine makers organise guided tours and tastings. I encourage you to go and meet these passionate people.

You will find the best addresses in the welcome booklet.

If you are looking for holiday accommodation in Montcuq, I recommend my gîte, the Perchoir du Quercy, a wooden house with a Nordic bath that can sleep up to 8 people.It's just outside the village, on the hill opposite! Imagine the view from the terrace or the spa!
