Since being rescued from ruin in the 1970s, the chateau has proudly regained possession of its belvedere overlooking the river and bordering wooded hills of holm oaks below. The remnants of its former defensive role create the rare feeling of being a little cut off from the rest of the world, in a peaceful and refined retreat where the stone buildings exude a quiet strength. The sense of eagerness to discover this region with a wealth of natural and historical riches will be even stronger! Guests will return in a daze after seeing such beauty and feel reassured to find all that is needed for a happy holiday.
Originally from Aveyron, we fell in love with the beautiful Lot region that is so rich in historical, architectural and gastronomic heritage.
The Chateau du Bastit dates back to the 14th and 15th centuries. It is located in a small Quercine hamlet of the same name. The chateau was built on a terrace overlooking the Dordogne valley and offers spectacular views of the river and surrounding countryside. A tower set on a barlong base flanks the house. A dovecote-tower on arches, classified as a Historic Monument and completely restored in 2004, stands at the north end of the terrace. The adobe floor in the kitchen is typical of the Périgord region where the peasants would collect small, slate (adobe) pebbles and shape them into a slightly triangular shape (bevel) with a hammer. To create a strong floor and the desired effect, they would then simply push the adobe pebbles into moist clay.
According to C. Didon (1996), the Roufilhacs succeeded the Belzoms as lords of the estate, they built the property at the origin of the chateau in the 15th century. Some sections of the walls, or at least parts of the materials, may belong to a construction from the Middle Ages, but would need a detailed examination. Damaged by a fire on an unknown date (but after 1829) the chateau was largely rebuilt and enlarged in the 1970s (Maymard, 1999). We bought the property in the nineties and completely restored and furnished it.
This chateau is an exceptional place that allows guests to combine à la carte hotel services with the exclusivity of a beautiful private residence. The terraced gardens, a forest of one hundred and twenty hectares and an infinity pool offering a view of the Dordogne complete the ensemble for guests to enjoy. We can organise activities such as fishing and canoe trips. To make the most of their stay, we have a chef who can intervene for an evening and help with any other requests. Breakfast can also be provided.
We recommend the restaurant at the Château de la Treyne - a Macaron Michelin starred restaurant since 2001. The Sarlat market every Wednesday and Saturday is renowned for its local specialities from the Périgord Noir region and its seasonal products. It is an opportunity to meet local producers and taste their delicious products. Rocamadour, along with villages such as Autoire, Loubressac and Careanc, is classified as one of the "Most beautiful villages in France" and is one of the nearby attractions. Last but not least, a canoe ride down the Dordogne is a must!
