A nugget that the French love!

Listed as one of France's most beautiful villages and voted France's favourite village, this architectural gem has a lot to offer.

Proudly nestling on a limestone cliff, this village dominates the Lot valley, in which it is perfectly reflected. Straight out of the Middle Ages, this village, some of which is listed as a historic monument, is best explored on foot, the better to soak up the nobility of its architecture, the elegance of its arcades, its staircases, its fortified gates... Saint-Cirq Lapopie boasts a total of 13 historic monuments!

Like André Breton, you'll be enchanted by this village and will be able to say in unison: "I've stopped wanting to be somewhere else".

You can also discover it via cruises on the Lot with our partner: Les croisières de saint Cirq Lapopie; they offer various cruises, including one ideally designed for hiking enthusiasts. Between Saint Cirq Lapopie and Bouziès is the Chemin de Halage (towpath), which we strongly advise you to follow.
