In the heart of Quercy Blanc
The territory of Quercy Sud-Ouest is located north-west of Tarn-et-Garonne, bordering the departments of Lot and Lot-et-Garonne.
The omnipresence of white stone and rocky outcrops have contributed to the name of this area: Quercy Blanc. The people of here, knew how to tame this material in order to adorn the religious buildings, the farms and the residences of the rich merchants. The city of Lauzerte is a magnificent example and proudly bears its title of “Most Beautiful Villages of France”.
This sparkling white can however be smeared with purple with the lavender fields and other colors offered by the multitude of varieties of wild orchids, not to mention the green of the Chasselas vines and oak woods.
