SAINT-SABINE, FRANCE (1980s)

Sainte-Sabine is a commune located in southwestern France, in the Dordogne department in Aquitaine. It was created after the Born-de-Champs and Saint-Sabine communes merged in 1974 and is now referred to as Sainte-Sabine-Born.

 

 

LMS also mentions visits to the Valley of the Lot and Puy-l'Évêque, both found in the Lot department in the Midi-Pyrénées region.

 

The Lot valley is a hidden treasure, whilst Puy-l'Évêque, with its historic streets and pretty terraced houses, retains remnants of its prosperous past in dyeing and nail-making.

This picturesque part of France is home to the Cahors Vineyards. And the Lot department is renowned for its fine food, from tasty truffles to gorgeous goose and delectable duck confit.

Lot takes its name from the Lot River, which flows through the southern part of the department, although the Dordogne also flows to the north and the Cele in the centre.
