Location

Caday Rouge is situated on the river Lot in the Lot-et-Garonne, Nouvelle-Aquitaine region of South West France between the hamlets of Saint-Vite and Saint-Georges. These villages are on the main national cycle route approximately half-way along the famous Lot Valley and set amongst fruit farms in true rural France with tranquillity to dream for.

Caday Rouge is a five-minute drive to the village of Monsempron-Libos and the town of Fumel, home to the historic Château de Fumel which was built to help defend the Lot Valley during the Hundred Years' War. Although not much remains of the original building, the terraced château gardens have been carefully restored and offers fine views across the Lot Valley.

Caday Rouge is also closely surrounded by villages, towns, and bastides such as Agen, Marmande, Villeneuve-sur-Lot, Duras, Nérac, and Monpazier.

The South-West has an abundance of fantastic roads: twisting and winding and turning into stunning views and amazing scenery and countryside. Even to us having been here for many years, the beauty, the views, and the wildlife never cease to make us catch our breath in admiration and wonder.

Historical towns and villages in this region such as Cahors, Sarlat, Domme, Rocamadour, and Monflanquin to name a few are fantastic to visit and stop for coffee or lunch. Châteaux de Bonaguil, de Biron, de Gavaudun, and de Beynac to name just a few are also within easy riding distance and have not only some great history and architecture about them but also some popular café / restaurant's which serve as great pit-stops during a tour.
