The Best Cycle Route in South West France

Enjoying the cycle paths down the canal just 15 minutes away from your holiday home here at Gone Fishin’ Aiguillon. If you want to hire bicycles they can be brought to your door .

The Canals cycle route continues along the greenway beside the Canal de Garonne, passing through the very lively port of Buzet-sur-Baïse. You reach Agen itself via one of the longest canal-bridges in France, at 600m. The town is both capital of the département (French county) of Lot-et-Garonne and French capital of prunes… and it conceals many other curiosities, which you can discover in the remarkable monuments in the historic centre.
