The most beautiful villages in the Lot

In the Occitanie region, the Lot is a department full of surprises: it's home to no fewer than eight of the most beautiful villages in France! In this article, we tell you about Rocamadour, Martel and Carennac. All that's left for you to do is set off on a day trip from the hotel!

Our top 3 most beautiful villages in the Lot


Built into the side of a rock at an altitude of over 120m, the village of Rocamadour is famous far beyond its borders. Its landmark monuments include the Basilica of Saint-Sauveur and the Chapel of Notre-Dame, which houses the Black Madonna. Their silhouettes overlook the Anzou canyon. To get there, you'll have to climb the 216 steps of the Grand Escalier. Don't leave Rocamadour without trying the PDO goat's cheese of the same name!


This small medieval town developed thanks to trade, particularly truffles. It can be recognised by its many towers, the most famous of which are :
  • The tower of the Palais de la Raymondie
  • The Belfry Tower
  • The Maison Fabri tower
Stroll through the streets of Martel and discover the shops, restaurants and craftsmen. On Wednesdays and Saturdays, the heart of the town comes alive with a large market packed with local produce.


Nestling on the banks of the Dordogne, Carennac seems to be protected by the imposing silhouette of its Benedictine abbey. It's a great place to live and stroll around the houses with their carved windows and pointed roofs. Among the monuments to discover, take a look at the Saint-Pierre church, the cloister and the chapter house.
