About this Property

Standing proudly above the Lot valley, with superb views over the river, this magnificent 13th-century medieval château, classified as a historic monument in 1995, is located just 15 minutes from Cajarc and Figeac.

Lovingly renovated from a virtual ruin, the château now boasts an elegant lounge/grand dining room with open fireplace, original stone floors and acces out to the landscaped garden and pool area as well as to the private courtyard. Next door there is a spacious, well equipped kitchen with garden and courtyard access. Beyond this there is a large boiler room/laundry area with separate WC, a large workshop with double doors to the courtyard and upstairs here, a gorgeous, high ceilinged crafts workshop room with mezzanine and an office next door.

The bedrooms are reached by the delightful, circular stone starircase in the tower. There are 3, en suite bedrooms at first floor level and a further 2 en suite bedrooms at second floor level. Here also, there is a comfortable library/lounge/TV room just made for relaxing.

More steps take you up to the huge and spacious double loft areas, which could be converted to provide more accommodation (subject to necessary permissions). The history of the property is in evidence on this level, where an overhanging gallery can be seen with an openwork floor, used to drop projectiles or burning material on to assailants.

Outside in the private, well landscaped garden, there is a 9 X 4m swimming pool with a telescopic cover. Magnificent views along the river Lot can be enjoyed from here.

In the enclosed courtyard there is also a two storey, stone barn with two horse boxes, an open garage for parking two vehicles and another large garage attached to the main house.

Whilst steeped in mediaeval history, this château has been thoughtfully and sympathetically renovated to provide spacious, light and comfortable accommodation. Situated in a pretty hamlet, it offers seclusion, privacy and magnificent views yet is within easy reach of shops and services.

A visit is highly recommended to this stunning property!

Stretching from the vibrant Toulouse area down to the Pyrénées and the Spanish border, this region is one of the most varied, offering a vast choice of property styles and surroundings.  The impressive rivers of the north and east of the region, the mountain backdrop of the south and the welcoming open vistas of the Gers in the west - it really does have a little of everything.

    Testimonial by Buyer (name withheld)

    Judith Whitlow has spent months helping me find my French home and I finally completed my purchase a couple of weeks ago. Judith is patient, knowledgeable, always willing to help in whatever way she can and overall a thoroughly professional agent. She handled tricky situations with the vendor in a calm and effective manner and was attentive and proactive in both the legal process and the practical matters involved in buying a house in France. I am very grateful to her for staying the course and for all her help, support and guidance.
