About this property

Delightful Château with Commanding Views. This chateau is in a rural setting.

Built in the 18th century and perched on the top of a hill, this delightful château has commanding views over the surrounding countryside providing brilliant vistas in every direction. It's located close to the lovely bastide towns of Lauzun and Eymet in the stunning north Lot et Garonne countryside, at times surrounded by sunflowers. The château still retains its original character and has been furnished accordingly. The master suite and each of the five apartments offer views of the surrounding countryside, some ooze period charm and boast traditional furniture including four poster or canopied beds, yet retain the modern asset of an en suite bath or shower room. At its heart is a large kitchen adjacent to magnificent dining and reception rooms capable of catering for everyone. The château can only be booked as a complete property, however the five individual apartments allow privacy from the main group when needed.

With its large reception room, dining room and huge terrace, pool and grounds, this is a perfect venue for family celebrations including parties, anniversaries, reunions and birthdays, the distance from any neighbours guarantees no problems with noise!

The château is also a great base from which to explore and enjoy the surrounding area, and of course to discover the local good food and quality wines...

**This property is currently undergoing some refurbishment ready for the 2020 season so, for example, some furniture, decor and bed linen may be changed from the photos**

The Owner Recommends

Local Markets

The local markets are always worth a visit. There's a small local market in Lauzun on a Saturday, Eymet's market is not to be missed and is on a Thursday, Miramont's market is on a Monday and the market in the pretty village of Issigeac on a Sunday is always very busy so try to get there early. Evening markets in the summer months are great to visit with plenty of food and entertainment.

Beautiful Villages

The area is home to some of the most beautiful villages in France. Named as some of 'Les plus beaux villages de France', Belves, Beynac-et-Cazenac, Castelnaud-la-Chapelle, Domme, La Roque-Gageac, Monflanquin and Monpazier are all worth a visit.

Chateau Visits

Head east of the property and visit the impressive chateaux of Biron, Beynac and Castelnaud-la-Chapelle. The Chateau and gardens des Milandes is worth a special mention. The chateau at Duras, only about 30 minutes away by car, is also well worth a visit - pay a visit to the Berticot wine shop and the Maison Guinguet chocolate producer while you're in Duras.

Beautiful Gardens

The Jardins de Marqueyssac are beautiful, and the view from the viewing platform across the Dordogne valley towards La Roque-Gageac is spectacular.

Wines and Vineyards

You are on the edge of such a rich wine producing area. The wonderful and famous wine village of Saint-Émilion is 90 minutes away. Monbazillac, with its gorgeous chateau is 30 minutes away back towards Bergerac airport, and Duras is only 30 minutes away, with many local small wine producers in the surrounding area.
