La Reole Fontet area
Fontet is a very attractive village set beside the canal, worth exploring, from its open bell tower church to its tiny museum (Musee des allumettes) dedicated to match stick models.
For the family visit the local mariner (Base de loisirs Halte nautique) where children can safely swim in the lake or play on the man made beach. There is a beach bar for light refreshments and ice creams.
In the village you will find a Boulangerie and a very good restaurant (Les Fontines) both within a short stroll from Lordons.
There are many horse riding stables close by who cater for all levels. There are numerous walks along the Canal du Midi/The Canal Lateral which runs through the village stretching from the Mediterranean Sea to Bordeaux, the Canal being the back drop for Rick Stein’s French Odyssey.
