The Experience

Come for gorgeous tapestries, sumptuous chandeliers, and a week of total, unabashed luxury. Not only do you find a ‘grand salon’, an aspidistra’d dining room and a kitchen fit for the Brothers Bocuse, there are a series of peaceful, elegant, intimate ‘boudoirs’ tucked in between.

Pop into Lauzerte for its twice-weekly market, or lunch at L’Etincelle. Set off for the amazing hilltop castle of Bonaguil, 50km, and Moissac with its world-famous Abbey. Cahors, straddling the river Lot, is one of south-west France’s most unspoilt towns and the centre of the local wine trade.

Return to a park of mature trees and lawns, a pool house, bar and pool, terraces, snooker, and a tennis court the other side of a stream. As for the bedrooms, they come in warm terracottas and deep forest greens. One suite has a circular bath, another a double shower…the attention to detail is exceptional.

Reviews

I would love to get a group of friends together, a suitcase full of hiking clothes for the daytime and evening dresses for dinner, and play the Chatelaines in this very handsome château for a week. The owner is a talented decorator and the kitchen is a chef's dream!

Location

The neighbourhood

In the unspoilt Quercy Blanc, land of forests, valleys and sunflowers, the château is 10 minutes from charming Lauzerte, with small shops, restaurants and market. All the neighbouring towns have their weekly market, including sleepy hilltop Montcuq (11km); the Café de France does BBQ nights, and lovely lunches under the trees. Equally close is a gem of a golf course, Roucous. Wine tastings abound.

Local points of interest from Aurelie Jaegle

  • All amenities are close to the château – there is a boulangerie, café, farm shop and post office in the village.
  • The whole château has just been completely renovated whilst keeping the soul of this place which is so special – it offers the charm of an 18th century house, but with a part dating from the 14th century open to the countryside.
  • Although the owners are not from France, they feel the Lot is their adopted region – they adore its landscape, gastronomy and its people who are so open and warm.

Introducing

Aurelie Jaegle

The château opened its elegant doors to guests in 2018. As the owners live most of the year in Brazil, the delightful French housekeeper Aurelie is mistress of the domain. On hand for guests at the drop of a hat, she's passionate about horses, knows the area inside out, and gives you 100% organic coffee from their Brazilian plantation.
