Gramat - a vibrant market town

Gramat is a vibrant little market town that's set in the Lot department of the Midi-Pyrénées. The town is rural in essence, depending largely on agriculture for its economy, but it's also well equipped with shops, supermarkets and services. The surrounding countryside is tranquil and pretty, with plenty of historic places to visit.

Historic buildings and modern attractions in Gramat

Gramat isn't the best known tourist attraction in the south-west of France, but it has several places of interest to call its own. There's a 16th century clock tower, a 19th century market hall and several historic buildings dotted around. More recent in origin, but also good to see are the animal park and the Tumulus racecourse.

Shops, restaurants and plenty of markets

The population count of 3,473 isn't large. But Gramat is surprisingly well equipped with shops and services. Three weekly markets ensure a supply of fresh produce and locally made crafts, while for serious grocery shopping there are good sized supermarkets. Smaller shops, all the usual services and a selection of hotels and restaurants complete the picture of this vibrant small country town.

Walking, horse-riding, golf and more

If you enjoy outdoor and country activities, Gramat is a great place for you. A trip to the animal park will entertain the kids and anyone else who loves animals. If you're lucky you might spot a wolf, a bear or otters among many other species. Walkers will be in paradise with all the glorious country walks you can follow in the area. Several golf courses lie within reach, and there are also some riding stables nearby from where you can explore the lovely surroundings on horseback.

Mediaeval history and a cliff top town to explore

The gorgeous mediaeval town of Figeac is close by and well worth a little of your time. It's a pilgrim town with pots of history and many heritage buildings to find. It's also got good markets held twice a week. Then there is the departmental capital of Cahors, home of the famous "black" wine. Or, how about a trip to the town of Rocamadour, with its dramatic cliff top location?
