ABOUT FLAUGNAC

A village with 2000 years of history

The Bastide of Flaugnac (“villa de Flaviaco” or “blond town”) is the oldest village in the area. The site has been inhabited since the start of our calendar era.

Originally by craftsmen and in the middle ages by the local nobility. In those days, the central part (the "Castrum") consisted of a fortress with houses of the nobility and from Flaugnac a large part of the Quercy was being governed. Through the centuries, the village has suffered from wars and plunder, but the strategic location kept attracting local inhabitants.

Now, the once so mighty Flaugnac is a tranquil rural little village. Still proudly positioned on a rock, high above the Vallée de la Lupte. Flaugnac is a listed village.
