Villages and Towns in Lot-et-Garonne

Penne d'Agenais

The narrow alleyways and passages of Penne d’Agenais tumble down a steep hill, enclosed by ramparts and medieval gateways. The village has a long history, but in the mid-20th century underwent extensive restoration and is now a popular spot for visitors in the summer when flowers adorn the marvellous half-timbered houses lining the steep lanes. Climb to the church of Notre-Dame de Peyragude at the top of the hill, its huge silver-domed basilica visible for miles around. Admire the view then reward your efforts by stopping for refreshments at one of the many cafés and restaurants. You can also visit Port-de-Penne at the bottom of the village, by the river.

Miramont-de-Guyenne

Visit Miramont-de-Guyenne on a Monday morning to shop at the weekly market, where the stalls are laden with delicious local produce (the Lot-et-Garonne region is known as the ‘orchard of France’). The bastide dates back to the 13th century (founded in fact by King Edward 1) and still conforms to the typical layout with the four main streets in a grid leading to the main square. After shopping at the market, visit the 19th century church which features a bright modern stained glass window using a deep rich blue, known as ‘Miramont blue’.

Castillonnès

Castillonnès is one of the 41 medieval bastides to be found in the Lot-et-Garonne. It sits on a rocky hill overlooking the rich valley of the Dropt River. Although Castillonnès is only a small village, it is bustling with local people all year round so you can find some shops, cafés, restaurants, and a cinema that sometimes shows English-speaking films in their original version – subtitled in French of course.

Monflanquin

Monflanquin is a medieval hilltop bastide, or fortified village, founded in 1256 and classified as one of the most beautiful villages of France. Although the village has lost is ramparts, it has retained its characteristic grid pattern, and the ever-bustling Place des Arcades still displays some very fine houses, for example the house of the Black Prince. There are many delicious restaurants and the main square hosts a great weekly produce market. At the beginning of August each year, the village returns to the Middle Ages, with costumed re-enactments of the activities, food and animations of those old times.
