"Every man has two countries: his own and France."

H. de Bonnier (1875)


Les Bourdeaux is located just north of the Lot, a relatively broad, peaceful river that is navigable but has some locks.

In Fumel you can, in the summer months, make a guided tour on the Lot in a larger boat.
In Port de Penne, near Penne d'Agenais, you can rent motor boats and make a tour on the river on your own.
In Villeneuve-sur-Lot, you can rent electric boats, canoes and pedal boats. You can also make a guided tour of one our in a small boat for 11 people. Those tours have to be booked in advance at
In Casseneuil, where the river Lède flows into the Lot, you can rent canoes and peddle on the Lède. The river Lède is smaller and not as quiet as the Lot.
For more adventurous canoeing, you can go to the river Dordogne, about 30 miles north of Monflanquin. Along the Dordogne are numerous opportunities to rent canoes; usually you will be taken to the start, by car. At the end of the trip on the river you will end up on the spot where you left your car in the morning.

In Frespech you can water ski.

In Le Temple sur Lot you will find a water sports center.

Do you just want to rest near a lake ? Lougratte, at 10 miles from Monflanquin, has a large lake with beautiful beaches.

For the kids there is a Walibi Wateworld in Agen.
