Department 46 | Lot, France

Lot 46, known as Occitanie is a region in France that the author lived in. There are fields of flowers that grow above the ground and many caves below ground. There are canyons and cliffs carved by ancient rivers as well as distinctive architecture with flat tile roofs and white stone walls. The author lived in two parts of the region, on the north end near the town of Gourdon and on the south end near the village of Montcuq.

Key Takeaways:

  • Department 46, the lot, can be found in an area currently known as Occitanie.
  • One former lot denizen, now living in the UK, remembers a first home in the lot as having red squirrels and beautiful lichen-covered trees.
  • The village of Montcuq, located at the southern edge of the lot, has a hilltop tower, testament to all that remains of a medieval castle.

“From the majestic rivers lined with vineyards to the ancient villages and bastide towns, the stunning châteaux and the fields of sunflowers, the low-key agriculture and characteristic architecture complement the distinctive natural beauty of the region.”
