Best ever French experience!
Posted by Glencoe on 16/04/2014

Had 9 wonderful days with a group of amazing people. The location and facilities allowed us to have a complete French experience from bike riding in the country side, village markets and tasting local farm produce. Several villages close by with great restaurants.
The Chateau has a beautiful outlook over the Lot River and is fitted out with a great kitchen which allowed us to cook up some amazing French food. Accommodation was great including the cottage. Would highly recommend if thinking of a complete French experience with a group of friends!

The Perfect Place for Everyone
Posted by Noels on 16/04/2014

My husband and I were very fortunate to be able to spend a week in the Chateau renewing old aquaintances and making new friends whilst there. We have travelled to France a number of times with this being our first "Chateau experience". What a delightful place to stay. It was beyond our expectations. So many activites within the property itself such as bike riding, swimming, badminton, table tennis, soccer or plenty of opportunities to explore the local surrounds by foot, bike or a short drive to many other places of interest such as Fumel where we had a beautiful late lunch of nicoise salad along with a glass of local rose at the creperie. There is also an abundance of places for some quiet time to read or just relax by the Lot River.

There are local markets close by and across the road is the farmers stall which had amazing produce that we used in our daily culinary creations cooked in the impressive gas stove or on the BBQ by the pool.

Definitely the place to spend some quality time with family and friends. Hopefully not our our last "Chateau experience". The perfect place for everyone.

Local Area / Activities

The chateau is walking distance to the village that contains restaurants, shops and bar. It is 45 minutes from Bergerac Airport and 1.5 hours from Bordeaux Airport. There is a large fishing shop close to the town of Villeneuve sur lot which is a 20 min car journey. To fish at the Chateau you must purchase a holiday license: it's only a few euros and you can buy one at the village shop. We have a small rowing boat for our guests to use, which is ideal for fishing. Or you can fish from the jetty. The Lot et Garonne is a beautiful, peaceful region of France. The land is farmed and famous for its plum trees and the production of prunes. Fresh, locally grown produce is available from the farm shop or from the local weekly markets. During July and August the village comes alive with the Thursday evening market, an enjoyable evening of dancing, music and enjoying the delicious local produce. This is an experience not to be missed. You can purchase locally grown and reared food and have it cooked for you straight away. Locals and visitors all dine together on long tables while enjoying an evening of music. The Chateau is on the banks of the lovely river Lot, which is excellent for fishing and canoeing. The area around the chateau is ideal for cycling and there are many small bastide towns to explore. The pretty village of Fongrave is just a 5 minute walk from the Chateau. With only 900 occupants the village is traditional and authentic. There is a post office, church and a small shop which stocks the daily necessities along with fresh bread and croissants each morning. Attached to the shop is The Beau-Rivage, a small bar/restaurant serving delicious traditional French food.
