An extraordinary garden

Let's move away from the Moulin du Boisset! Oh, not too far, just an hour's drive and still in the Dordogne Valley, but this time not in the Lot department but in the nearby Dordogne. Like the Lot, the Dordogne is an incredibly rich area in terms of tourist sites, history and heritage. There are medieval towns such as Sarlat-la-Canèda, La Rocque-Gageac, Domme, Benac and Cazenac, most of which have been awarded the "Most Beautiful Villages in France" label. The Dordogne is home to the famous Lascaux cave, with its exceptional, world-renowned cave paintings, and a host of medieval castles built during the Hundred Years' War.

An abandoned village

If you'd like to combine a hike with a visit to an unusual place steeped in history, we recommend a walk not far from Miers, a village located between Rocamadour and the Gouffre de Padirac. It's from Miers that you'll find one of the starting points for a very special hike, the "Dolmens de Miers" trail, which has been given this name quite simply because the region has traces of human occupation dating back to the Palaeolithic period, with a large number of Neolithic tombs and dolmens, making the Lot one of the French departments with the most burial mounds.

Another way of canoeing

The Dordogne is a magnificent river, which you can canoe or kayak down from one of the many water sports centres along the way. One of these is less than 10 minutes from the Moulin, and it was from this base that we canoed down the Dordogne on several occasions.

There are several routes on offer, ranging from 9 to 27 km, and thanks to the river's easy flow, they are suitable for everyone as long as you know how to swim.

And 3 more...

AMAZING!

The Moulin du Boisset is now surrounded by not 6 but 9 villages recognised as being among the "Most Beautiful Villages in France". At the start of the 2022 summer, 3 more villages have been awarded this superb distinction. Rocamadour (Lot), Martel (Lot) and Beaulieu sur Dordogne (Corrèze) join Carennac (Lot), Autoire (Lot), Loubressac (Lot), Collonges-la-Rouge (Corrèze), Curemonte (Corrèze) and Turenne (Corrèze).

moulin-du-saut

Another watermill

Among the many walks available in the more or less immediate vicinity of the Moulin du Boisset, there is one that we are particularly fond of: the Moulin du Saut. You can tackle this hike by taking several routes, depending on your level and sporting ability. These range from a simple loop of around 5km starting from the car park near Gramat, to a round trip (14km) starting from the foot of the medieval town of Rocamadour, or a combination of the two for the bravest (around 18km).
