One of the joys of Mas Sarrat is that your holiday can be as active or peaceful as you choose. In fact, many of our guests hardly leave our little hamlet, other than perhaps to stroll down to the delightful C15th village, Lherm, with its pretty square and lively local bar. The Bar a Trucs serves delicious food in a relaxed, informal atmosphere at lunch time and in the evening and the friendly owners warmly welcome families, providing games and books to keep the children occupied whilst you enjoy a leisurely meal!
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! ...
In the last couple of years the Lot tourist office has concentrated on improving the choice of activities for families and children. There are now limitless possibilities, most of which are free of charge for under 3 year olds and many of which are free for under 5 year olds. Here is just a flavour of just some of the exciting things on offer...
