Villeneuve-sur-Lot : Michelin's recommendations
Weekly colourful markets draw crowds to this walled town, which Alphonse of Poitiers had the good idea of creating in the Serres region irrigated by the Lot River: vines and orchards decorate the slopes as far as the eye can see. Gourmands must not forget that the real Agen prune, only comes from Villeneuve. Other visitors will linger on and stroll through the town's streets or under the roof gutters Lafayette Square.
