This beautiful privately owned family château dating back to 1792 is set in 4.5 hectares of private grounds and gardens. The château is situated on a hilltop next to a small 12th Century church (which is not in use), overlooking rolling countryside with outstanding views and quiet surroundings. The closest town is Cancon, which is just a 7 km drive from the Château, and has an outstanding bakery, along with a weekly market.

The interiors of the château have been beautifully decorated and furnished with family antiques and portraits. It does have many hunting trophies of animals so please be warned if you have children that do not like this sort of decoration.

This property is ideal for a large family or group of friends who appreciate tranquillity, history and beauty in this particular region of France.

Due to its location in the quiet Lot-et-Garonne region 10 km south of the Dordogne border, trips to the Dordogne for sightseeing are easily feasible.

Also ideal in pre- and late season due to central heating and open fires for chilly evenings.



Beautifully decorated chateau in pretty rural countryside, surrounded by sunflowers.  Lovely pool & garden.
