Supermarkets
Carrefour Market, located on the main road to Cahors The weekly market takes place on Sunday mornings and in the summer is certainly the largest of the weekly markets in the immediate region.

Located at the roundabout leading to the village. The upper village of Lauzerte, known as one of the prettiest villages in France, is well worth the trip. The weekly market takes place on Saturday mornings.

Shopping
Although there are three bakeries in the village, plus the supermarket, Vival has the best bread that it resells for a bakery elsewhere. It is also very good for local produce and products.

The shop, Vins et Saveurs, offers the most sophisticated selection of local wines and products in the village. Both Vival and the Carrefour Market, however, also offer very good value for money in their wine selection.

The approach to this village, that is literally built on a cliff face, offers one of the most stunning views I know. The village is a well-known pilgramage site. La Forêt des Singes also offers an interesting opportunity to approach the some 150 Barbary macaques in residence with no bars or cages to hinder your view.

A well preserved castle the oldest parts of which date from the XIII century. The walk up to the castle offers an interesting variety of antique shops and galleries.

Parks & Nature
The Parc Animalier is well worth a day trip for both adults and children. The zoo specialises in European animals, including species that are not commonly known.
