Villeneuve-sur-Lot, one of the most powerful of the fortified Bastide towns in the south-west of France, is some twenty minutes away. Equidistant from Bordeaux and Toulouse, each with a TGV train line and an international airport.
The French department of Dordogne, with countless interesting and unusual things to see, is just a stone’s throw away; Bonaguil is 30 minutes away.
Here, the river Lot crosses a fertile plain surrounded by orchard-covered hills: all part of the wonderful Aquitaine region.
The manor house
This manor house, laid out in a U-shape, delimits an inner courtyard. Its dry-jointed stone walls comprise a building, constructed in various eras: 18th and 19th century for the east wing and a section of the north wing, the west wing is much older: fire holes and gun-loops visible in the south wall bear witness to a medieval past.
The tiled roofs feature a triple overhanging cornice, a sign of the property’s importance.
A long covered area adjoining the perimeter wall, on the south side, is ideal for summer meals.
A long, one-storey building on the east side extends, at right angles, and adjoins the oldest section. Two stone oculi and a window with overhanging eaves illuminate the attic space. A French window provides access to the section used as caretaker’s accommodation. This is followed by the garage doors.
A room, on entering, has terracotta floor tiles and exposed ceiling beams. Under a little window looking out over the courtyard is a sink. This is followed by a tiled room with a closed-hearth fire. A spiral stairway leads up to the attic. These are vestiges of the old medieval tower.
Back on the ground floor, to the left of the entrance on the north side, is a small tiled room that forms a lobby preceding two large garages. With cement floors and ceiling beams, they open on to the courtyard via two sets of large double doors. A small window overlooking the courtyard lets in light.
A flagstone corridor leads from the last garage to the accommodation section. Preceding the large kitchen is a Jacuzzi, installed at the end of a corridor, with a toilet opposite.
Next to this, a wooden stairway provides access to a large attic, with a panelled ceiling and wooden flooring, above the garages. This attic is illuminated via “Velux” skylights on the north side and two stone oculi as well as a small window with overhanging eaves on the south side. This living space is completed by a bathroom with a shower, a wash-hand basin and a toilet.
This residence is a magical encounter for those who love solitude: the silence, the thick woods that form its setting and its medieval facade suspended above the valley with a view stretching to infinity.
This spot would make a superb take-off point for paragliders especially if it was linked to a hotel and catering project for tourists, attracted by the character of the premises
The children of a large family will have the best of childhood memories and those who are less sporty can take advantage of the wealth of this land between the Périgord and Quercy regions.
And why not start a truffle-growing activity: the land here is ideal as the “brulis”, burnt-looking areas beneath the oak trees, are clearly visible.
This chateau has many a string to its bow.
