Property description

Chateau Lotoise
This spectacular château, with a private pool and decorated to a high standard, is located between Gourdon and Sarlat in the famous Périgord Region, the Region with the best food of France and many castles everywhere... It’s ideally positioned on the edge of Périgord Noir in Dordogne, nearby other well-known castles and some beautiful towns to visit like Sarlat, Rocamadour, Saint Cirque la Popie, Cahors, Beynac, Domme or Larocque Cageac. The private domain is set on the edge of a picturesque medieval village with easy access to all local amenities and close to the Dordogne River. In the village a lovely restaurant and bakery service, for your fresh croissants in the morning...
The original medieval château was built circa 1440 and served as a defensive structure to protect the inhabitants against the British during the 100 Years War.
The domain includes besides the chateau itself an entrance gate with a renovated guest house with old towers. This guesthouse has one large bedroom and two guard rooms in the entrance towers converted into two bedrooms with one queen size bed and one single bed. This guest house is suitable for teenagers or adventurers, not suitable for elder people, it has a bathroom, kitchen and living-room on the ground floor, very cosy decorated.

Interior of the Castle: There are several floors in the Chateau. There is the fantastic cellar with original domed ceiling from the 17th century and underfloor heating, which can be used for weddings or your own private party…inside the cellar a ping pong table for the sportive people... On the ground floor you find a large reception room/living room divided in two parts with an impressive fireplace and satellite TV/DVD and WIFI. In the convivial dining room (seating for 14/16) there is a romantic open stone fireplace. The dining room leads to the modern, fully equipped kitchen and to the terrace with spectacular views over the cliff… (you are 80 meters above the ground….)

On the first floor are four magnificent private double bedrooms with glorious en-suite bathrooms. The fifth bedroom, in the tower, is an exclusive and very romantic room with a ‘spa’ bathroom, an incredible four poster bed and a huge fireplace. All the rooms and bathrooms have recently been carefully renovated and decorated to a style befitting their historical past.

There is a sizeable garden with a beautiful huge pool (4 x 12) for you to savour the wonderful French summers and watch the sunset while having a nice barbecue at the pool. The many terraces and the massive walled, medieval garden sets you above the valley below, while providing wonderful areas to enjoy the tranquillity and silence that the grassy park affords you.

Together with the Gîte the chateau can easily lodge 16 people.
Airconditioning, Table tennis, mini foot, badminton, internet, Tennis court in the village 100meters away. Gardener and maid available if necessary (extra charges).

Special services: we also offer the service of a Private Chef, Catering, Holistic Massage at the chateau, Golf Outings and a Private Wine Guide who can take you on a tour or come to the castle to give you a Black Wine Workshop, this all to make your French experience an unforgettable one….

History: According to local legend there are underground tunnels linking the domain to the châteaux of Gourdon, Rocanadel, Masclat and Fenelon. During the French revolution the vendor threw golden keels in the well to collect at a later date, he never came back and they remain unfound. The original castle was burnt down during the revolution in a protest over corn. The subsequent château has taken its place and offers a more open and welcoming feel. Perched on top of a cliff facing due south and west this château is unique not only in its positioning but also in its rich heritage.

Car: Necessary

Just down the road from magnificent sites and other famous chateaux like Chateau des Millandes, Beynac and Castelnaud, your own private Chateau is an ideal base for exploring the area. Find your way up to Domme, just minutes away, or to Sarlat to take part in their famous markets. The village of Daglan is minutes down the hill where you can find a daily supermarket, and a wonderful restaurant where you can dine outdoors while looking up at the Chateau. Wonderful walks through the Chateau’s private forest open out into hikes down the hill to the Céou river which runs from the Dordogne. Other restaurants and shopping opportunities abound with all the richness of the area's famous pre-history as well. Take a drive up to the Lascaux caves, or visit nearby Cahors for wine-tasting.
