Activities 

Nestling in beautiful countryside, Mas Sarrat is ideally located for exploring the stunning Dordogne and Lot departments.  Close by you will find the beautiful Lac Vert swimming lake at Catus (just 15 minutes drive) which has free tennis courts, basketball courts, play park, picnic area and snack bar/restaurant.  Pedalo and kayak hire is available from 1st July to 31st August.  Also not far from Mas Sarrat is the fascinating medieval town of Cahors, with its large variety of shops, restaurants, a bustling market, the magnificent Pont Valentre and many historic sites.

But should you decide to venture further afield, there is SO much to see and do - from canoeing to karting, wine-tasting to water skiing, fetes to flower markets, pedaloes to potteries, visiting chateaux, caves and beautiful gardens, milking goats, riding, eating, swimming - the list is endless! ...
