France’s only Prune Museum tells the story of the prune, which was brought over from the Orient and came to thrive in Lot-et-Garonne. A video shows visitors how the fruit is cultivated over the season, and museum mascot Mam’zelle Prune invites families to take part in a fun-filled educational tour of the orchards. In summer, visitors can get lost in the jungle of corn, a treasure hunt which winds around the 1,500 m² of land. There is a special torchlight evening every Monday and Thursday, starting at 9pm in July and at 8.30pm in August. The site has direct access to the Lot, with a floating landing stage on the left bank of the river.
This museum houses a unique collection which tells the history of the prune. The museum spans several rooms: the first displays a reconstruction of an early 20th century drying room with its different oven and drying kilns, showing how prunes are dried; the second room shows how the prunes are prepared and packaged in a workshop displaying the original machines and tools, and the third and final room houses a rare collection of original packaging, documents and archives, as well as a collection of ceramics and yokes. A video rounds off the visit, showing how prunes are grown and marketed in the present day.

In the South West of France, near Agen and Villeneuve-sur-Lot, on the banks of the river Lot, only a short distance from Dordogne and the fortified towns of Guyenne, the Tannerie guest house, a 17th century village house, has been wonderfully refurbished. The basins used for washing animal skins under the house, the fountain covered in natural vegetation along with the structure of the house with it’s panoramic view of the Lot river all invite you on a journey as soon as you go inside.
