Saint Sozy, located next to the river Dordogne, in the Lot region of south-west France is certainly worth a visit. Nestled amongst the extraordinary landscapes of the Causse de Martel, protected by a cliff, this pretty little village boasts a small supermarket, newsagent, butchers, restaurant, bar and even a hairdressers – everything you could want from daily village life. And, the surrounding countryside is heavenly – worthy of hiking, cycling and driving through. For a lovely day out, head over to Martel, a truly beautiful medieval town that really does feel like a step into the past. With grand towers, magnificent buildings and a lovely market, you’ll be completely charmed.
