Lot Property For Sale
Lot property offers buyers an unbeatable mix of climate, affordability and access.
Named after the river that meanders through it, the Lot enjoys a warmer, drier climate than neighbouring Dordogne and boasts 120 World Heritage sites in a landscape seemingly untouched by Man since the dawn of time.
If you’re looking for a rental return on your Lot property then you should look to buy near the tourist hot-spots. Just over the border from Dordogne – but still very much part of the Dordogne tourist-trail – are the precariously perched cliff-top village of Rocamadour and the pre-historic Padirac cave with its underground navigable river!
B&Bs and gites here benefit from the huge tourist draw of this area. Nearby is the pretty medieval town of Gourdon on the banks of the river Loup – also part of the tourist triangle.
Renovation property in the Lot is best found away from the tourist trails – particularly in the Parc Naturel Regional des Causses – where newcomers can readjust their body clocks to the natural pace and rhythms of nature in one of the least populated areas of France.

The area has inspired writers, painters and poets for generations. St Cirq Lapopie is a charming cliff-top village with breathtaking views of the Lot valley – property prices here reflect the perfect coming together of man-made and natural beauty.
Cahors – famous for its strong inky black wines – is the capital of the Lot. Surrounded by hills and rivers and graced with medieval architecture the capital has a lot to offer. Cahors property is also in demand for the long-term domestic rental market.
To the west, Prayssac property and Puy l’Eveque property are highly sought after as these are pretty tourist towns in the heart of the Cahors vineyards.
Access to your Lot property has been greatly helped by the opening of Brive la Gaillarde airport just a stone’s throw over the border with Limousin. Bergerac and Rodez airports can serve west and east Lot respectively and you can fly or catch the TGV to Toulouse and then change to a local train for your onward journey north.
