For over thirty years artists have been coming to Cubertou, living and working in its rural surrounds, marvelling at the clarity of light and the landscape and enjoying the exceptional country cuisine and wine of the Vallee du Lot. Situated in historic South West France and conveniently set within twenty-five tranquil, wooded acres, Cubertou is close to much Romanesque art and architecture that is said to have advanced south with the pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostela in Spain.
The Region is rich with ‘Bastides’ spectacular fortified towns, which like Montpazier, are a legacy of the 100 Years War.
Cubertou is within accessible distance to the famous prehistoric painted caves of:
Lascauz 11, Font de Gaume, Les Eyzies and Peche Merle. Nearby is the historic town of Cahors, the departmental capital. Also within easy reach of Cubertou are colourful local markets on Thursdays and Sundays and an abundance of vineyards for ‘degustation’.
