The area is known for its summer night markets, access to seasonal produce (e.g. truffles, cèpes) and numerous wine regions including Cahors, Buzet and Brulhois. It is home to many historic attractions including medieval villages, castles, abbeys and caves and provides a wide range of leisure facilities such as golf courses, horse riding stables, lake beaches and water sports centres.
The property sits in a no-build zone, ensuring no new nearby housing developments.
