Just 3 kilometers from the house, nestled in the region's rolling hills, Saint-Clar's leisure center offers a beach of fine sand on the edge of a lake with water-slides, pedal-boats and other activities.
Lectoure, the town of art, is just 15 kilometers away, set on a magnificent promentory with narrow streets which run down towards the sun. The town is also well known for its hot spring baths, and the celebrated « Bleu de Lectoure », a fine pastel blue used by artists.
Fleurance, a few kilometers beyond Lectoure, offers a nine hole golf course.
There are said to be a thousand castles here, and Lavadens is certainly the most striking. Further afield are La Romieu, with it's cloister in stone lace-work, and the cistercian abbey at Flaran. Along the route, you will pass through the suberb fortified villages which are the hallmark of Lomagne : Fleurance, Cologne, Mauvezin, Fourcès and many others.
