Tourism in Lot-et-Garonne
A land of festivities
Music lovers will be able to enjoy the jazz festival organised in Puymirol every year: in the summer, Puym’Jazz welcomes leading jazz musicians in the superb setting offered by the medieval fortified town that offers a clear view over the valley.
The open-air concerts on Place de la Citadelle boast an attractive setting and guarantee that you will find yourself moving to the sound of the music!
The Grand Pruneau Show is a major musical event that is held every summer in Agen, 15 km from Puymirol.
On the last weekend in August, tourists and local residents come to celebrate the famous prune: parade, concerts, games, markets and tasting sessions.
A fun event that pays tribute to this delicious speciality!
Land of gastronomy
The Relais & Châteaux Michel TRAMA is located in the heart of a region famous for its gastronomy: the South West of France, and its tastes are well worth a discovery trip with a loved one, family or friends. Foie gras, duck confit, cep mushrooms and truffles sourced from local farmers offer you the chance to discover the regional specialities. Plenty to delight even the greatest epicureans among you.
Do not miss the chance to savour truffles, a delicate and refined ingredient for which Puymirol market is famous. Many markets are devoted to this "black diamond" (in particular those in Agen and Puymirol), the main star in the region's dishes.
The night markets organised in Puymirol will provide the opportunity to enjoy some local specialities. Farmers from the neighbouring regions of Gers, Lot-et-Garonne and Tarn-et-Garonne meet there every Saturday between 7 pm and 11 pm.
It is a great pleasure to take a seat at one of the tables and enjoy the opportunity to savour the fresh produce you have just purchased! A taste experience accompanied by the sound of music that is well worth the detour
Land of history
Laid out in a traditional 13th century building, which used to be the home of the Count of Toulouse, Raymond VII, the hotel-restaurant is an eloquent example of the region's great historical heritage. The village of Puymirol is a typical example of the region's well-preserved heritage: wide doors in the ramparts lead into the fortified town created by the Count of Toulouse which was one of the first medieval walled towns built in the region of Agen. History lovers will delight in walking around the town's streets, as well as in visiting the surroundings.
A few kilometres from Puymirol, Moissac abbey and cloister is well worth a visit. This jewel of Romanesque art, a UNESCO listed heritage site, bears witness to the region's artistic and religious dynamism between the 11th and 13th centuries: the delicate sculptures, illuminations, statues and architecture make it an unmissable tourism destination.
Land of adventure
Located at the foot of the fortified town of Puymirol, the lake is extremely popular for leisurely walks and pleasant picnics in the great outdoors.
Keen hikers will be able to enjoy many walks around the village and in the surrounding area that will allow them to discover the well-preserved and lush landscapes of Lot-et-Garonne.
A stay in the region will also provide the opportunity to sail along the Lot, the Baïse or the Canal de Garonne.
Excursions, boat or canoe hire, rowing: there is a host of solutions for discovering the region's secrets from the water and admiring the medieval fortified towns along the way.
Relaxation and a change of scenery guaranteed!
In Donzac, visit the Conservatoire des Métiers d'Autrefois et des Métiers du Vin (Museum of Traditional Trades and Wine-Making).
