At the bend of a small winding road crossing woods and fields, Lascoups suddenly appears at the end of a clear driveway. Perched on a hill, this former feudal motte has been shaped over the centuries to become, more recently, a large holiday home. While its simple and majestic silhouette has kept the spirit of its past, the interiors have taken a decisive turn towards the 21st century. The sleek design allows the vast volumes to take pride of place as the bright light shining through the windows illuminates them. Enjoying the views, guests will take comfort in the roundness of the wooded hills that surround the estate. Deciding between the pleasures of the property and the many temptations that surround it is not an easy choice. The only solution is to make the most of everything.
Périgord was a natural choice as it had always been a childhood dream. It was the glorious memory of an incredible region with 1001 castles and well-preserved villages, ten of which are among the most beautiful villages in France. The landscapes are exceptionally pure, the heritage is remarkable, the atmosphere is charming and the climate is sunny. There is so much to say; it is impossible to be indifferent about the Dordogne.
From its hill, the Château de Lascoups overlooks the surrounding valleys and the hamlet below with an 11th century chapel. This former medieval stronghold has been transformed over the centuries into a tastefully decorated pleasure residence. The tower was the original dwelling to which two main buildings were later added. The outbuildings near the house were built in the 18th century. The property still features a dovecote. The entrance of the Château de Lascoups is via a machicolated porch.
The chateau was a strategic fortress in the 15th century, and took its name in the 16th century when Jean de Lascoups obtained permission from Louise de la Béraudière (widow of Louis d'Estissac, lord of Montclard) to add battlements and machicolations in 1587. The chateau was originally started by her father and was known as Coste Cluzel. The architecture was then altered over the following centuries. It was completely restored in 2015.
To stay at the Château de Lascoups is to savour the romanticism and atmosphere of a remarkable 15th and 17th century residence located on an estate of over fifty hectares. The chateau overlooks a magnificent Italian garden and an infinity pool over thirty meters long. It is a true haven of peace in a bucolic environment with a breathtaking view of the surrounding nature.
Discover superb landscapes and explore numerous hiking trails right from the property's doorstep. There are some unique places to explore including the Hameau de Saint-Georges and its Sainte Rita Chapel and washhouse, numerous Chartreuses, and the Château de la Gaubertie. Discover the biodynamic vineyards of the Château de Monestier and the Château de la Tour des Gendres. Less than ten minutes from Lascoups are the Merles golf course and the Dordogne for canoeing. Just a few kilometers away is the Perouse farmers' market where you can try local products.
