Las Brugues has several miles of quiet roads around it, and some undulating countryside making it ideal for exploring on foot or by bicycle: Additional bicycles can be hired in Montaigu de Quercy if required.
The countryside around is a veritable food basket with many acres of sunflowers being grown for oil among other cereal crops, and there are also considerable areas of fruit orchards, vineyards, vegetables and nut groves.
Many of these products can be purchased directly from artisans at markets which are held in most larger villages and towns throughout the area: Montaigu de Quercy market is on a Saturday and Roquecor on Sundays. A list of other markets is included in The Area information above.
Restaurants are also active customers for this fresh produce, and a good range of restaurants and bars will be found in the area offering good quality food, generally at very reasonable prices.
The natural history of the area is everywhere around, with animals and plants to be seen often, and interesting rock formations and valleys to be found particularly along the Lot a little way to the north of Las Brugues.
Ancient history is also rich in this area, with both Montaigu de Quercy and Roquecour having medieval roots and many historical buildings still in evidence. A little further away Lauzerte and Pujols, just south of Villeneuve sur Lot, are both listed in 'Les Plus Beaux villages de France'. Roman evidence is seen in the main roads, many of which are typically straight, making travel around the area reasonably direct and swift. Both Cahors and Villeneuve sur Lot have Roman connections.
Medieval chateaux are found north of the River Lot in the stunning countryside near Villereal with Chateau Biron and Chateau de Bonaguil the most popular to visit.
Water based activities including river trips, boat hire and fishing can be found wherever the River Lot is accessed, the nearest being Port de Penne, near the bridge over the river at Penne d'Agenais. For different water activities, Montaigu de Quercy has its own water park, with a large sandy beach area, lifeguard patrolled (in season) swimming, boat and pedalo hire, and zip wires over the lake along with bars and restaurants.
