A river runs through it


Cahors is located in one of the many loops that the river Lot makes in its vicinity, essentially making it feel like a city on an island. Surrounded by hills and water, to the west of Cahors lies Bordeaux and to the south you will find yourself on the way to Languedoc or Toulouse and the Pyrenees.

Cahors itself is a charming old town which finds itself in the heart of the South West France wine country and is famous for Cahors red wine (most of which are of the Malbec variety and allegedly one of the darkest red wines in the world). A drive around the vineyards for wine tasting is easily arranged. Besides wine, the medieval neighbourhood and the Valentré bridge are the main attractions here, with the Boulevard Gambetta in particular being a nice area to walk around with its sidewalk café's, restaurants and shops.
