Figeac chateau / country house description
For those looking to experience rural France at it’s most beautiful, the immaculate Chateau Laroque positioned on the outskirts of Rodez, in the heart of the Aveyron, is the perfect setting. After crossing extensive grounds, you reach the Chateau Laroque through gates opening onto a large courtyard on the north side. South of the property is a swimming pool and landscaped garden, while the east wing of the building is an ornate tower featuring a ‘Pigonnier’ style loft with circular rooms. Many of the main rooms have been hand painted by an Italian artist in the 19th century, are of generous size and feature vaulted ceilings. Up to 20 people can be accommodated in the elegant but comfortable dining room. The main living room is very large with traditional, period furniture.
On the ground floor is a large, well-equipped kitchen that can also be used as a dining room. This leads to a separate utility room with washing machine, dryer and dishwasher. Up to 20 people can be accommodated in the formal dining room which is both elegant and comfortable. The main living room is very large with traditional, period furniture, and includes TV, DVD and Hi-Fi. There is also a large games room with a pool table. On the first floor there are six bedrooms to sleep 12 people or more. The Master Bedroom collects a lot of natural light through double windows at both the front and rear of the building. The grandeur of the Chateau clearly shows through in this spacious room with wonderful large fireplace and high ceiling - hand painted by an Italian artist. Its en-suite bathroom is equally grand offering every comfort with oval corner bath, separate shower cubicle and double vanity unit in marble and large mirrors. It even has a separate room containing the WC and a bidet.

The King Size Bedroom has a king size bed and modern en-suite bathroom. The Twin Bedded Room has two substantial singles (130cm wide) and could therefore easily accommodate two couples.
