About this property

Authentic, Calm , Private But Not Isolated. This chateau is in a rural setting.

5-Star 18c Manoir Les Gaillardoux in South West France offers you Style, Comfort, Privacy, Space ... and a heated pool... and easy access to numerous local activities and attractions. Whether you seek an adrenaline-filled holiday or a relaxing one, you will run out of time long before you run out of things to do!

Manoir Les Gaillardoux is situated in a rural position in the elevated Causses du Quercy Blanc, in Midi-Pyrenees (Occitanie) , Southwest France. An ideal location for exploring Quercy's medieval architecture, history and its scenic landscapes and for discovering its renowned local gastronomy and Cahors AOC vineyards and fine wines.

A Manoir for all seasons, cool in summer and warm in winter, it is generously equipped to welcome up to 12 guests seeking style, comfort, space and privacy. Its private 1.25 hectare (3 acres) park and orchard provide space for everyone: privacy for some and safe playing space for others. In summer and autumn, our guests enjoy picking seasonal fruits from our trees: cherries, plums, figs, walnuts.

It is no accident that the Manoir was awarded 5 stars rating by the French Ministry of Tourism as early as 2012, and we continue to bring new enhancements for the enjoyment of our guests.

About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Josiane Wileman

We spent 4 years looking for our dream home in South West France. The Lot region was a favourite for us, because of its relatively sparse population, the gastronomy we knew well and loved, the conviviality of the locals and the dramatic scenic landscape, and of course the weather!<br/>Our intention was to find a Manoir or small castle which would combine an authentic regional look with the potential to become a secondary home, matching our vision for comfort, style, space and privacy.

Year property purchased 2005
Why this location? We fell in love with Manoir Les Gaillardoux at first sight, but it needed a lot of love and care to match our vision, so we set to work … 17 local artisans poured heart and soul into its restoration under the leadership of Francoise, our Maitre d’Oeuvre. The results? In 2006, the butterfly came out of its chrysalis. The Manoir had become a home, which subsequently earned the top 5-star rating from the French Ministry of Tourism.
Unique benefits of property A Manoir for all seasons, cool in summer and warm in winter, it is generously equipped to welcome up to 12 guests seeking style, comfort, space and privacy.
