Canal de Garonne

Canal de Garonne

The Canal de Garonne towpath is ideal for walking and cycling, or just lunch and a stroll. A good place to join the canal is Le Mas d'Agenais, about 45 minutes drive fron Vue de Duras. Founded by the Romans, it is a picturesque little town with an authenticated Rembrandt painting in the church.

A few kilometres further down is the Halte Nautique near Lagruère where there is a little restaurant on the Canal (see picture) where you can have a nice 3 course lunch for 15 euros. Le Bout de la Cote (05 53 20 95 47) is open fron 1st April until 31st October.
