The property is located in picturesque countryside about thirty kilometres south-west of Cahors at the crossroads of the Lot, Lot-et-Garonne and Tarn-et-Garonne departments.
Be charmed by this beautiful and large family home for rent, for a wedding, a birthday or any other celebration, a cousinade, or to gather with family or friends for a holiday. The castle is vast, with its 12 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms, it can comfortably accommodate up to 24 adults and 7 children. 4 to 5 additional people can be lodged in a cosy cottage located on the castle grounds.
An enchanting setting, a beautiful terrace with an exceptional view over a preserved landscape, a park with century-old trees, and refined and authentic interiors with all modern comforts are the best guarantees to spend precious moments that will remain engraved in your memory.
The large swimming pool (100 m2) is located slightly apart, on the edge of the park, in order to preserve the silence of the place. It overlooks the wooded valley and offers a beautiful view of the castle.
A tennis court, rented all year round, can be booked in the neighbouring village (3 minutes by car) and a table tennis table is available in the park.
The video library with its wide range of movies invites you to spend pleasant evenings in the home cinema room. Many board games and outdoor games are also available during your stay.
The Château d'Aix wine estate (adjoining but independent of the château) offers a selection of excellent wines (organic label). Tastings with the chatelaine and the winemaker Joel Vigouroux can be organised on request.
