Pine trees, fun and fine sand at Lake Clarens, in Casteljaloux


The Aquafun inflatable games park on Lake Clarens.

Aquafun park

The Landes de Gascogne forest is not the preserve of the Landes department. It also extends over hundreds of hectares from the south of Lot-et-Garonne to Casteljaloux, the city of the cadets of Gascony. All around the city, once the capital of the vast Gascon state extending from the Pyrenees to Quercy, Pinus pinaster, otherwise known as “the maritime pine”, reigns supreme over the canopy.

It is there, a few steps from the historic center of Casteljaloux, that we find a very beautiful site: Lake Clarens. A good two hours from the beaches of the Ocean, there is nevertheless water, white sand and pine trees. And above all a huge amusement park, AquaFun, where slides and inflatable courses of all kinds will delight children from 6 years old (open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. during the summer holidays). aquafunparkclarens.fr

There is more than just prunes in Lot-et-Garonne. There are also hazelnuts and duck. For the latter, you have to go to the Souleilles farm in Frespech, at the gateway to Quercy. The Foie Gras museum is located on a farm that combines all the characteristics of the great tradition.

We discover that we owe this recipe to the Egyptians but also to the Romans. Foie gras has crossed the centuries to become one of the emblems of the South-West and Lot-et-Garonne tables. Don’t worry, a tasting awaits visitors, as well as the possibility of leaving with beautiful preserves. Because history is good, but enjoying it at the table is even better. souleilles-foiegras.com
