FRENCH HERITAGE RESTORED.
LAND OF NATURE AND ART OF LIVING.
Location: Occitania and its department of the Lot. In the heart of the Causses du Quercy Natural Park, awarded the UNESCO World Geopark label in 2017 for the richness and diversity of its natural environment. Located 10 minutes from Cahors and the shops. Toulouse, train station and airport 1h. Bordeaux 2h. Paris 5 hours.

Environment: A Nature Park is first and foremost a territory recognised for the quality of its landscape, built, environmental, gastronomic and cultural heritage. The Causses du Quercy, offer a fabulous range of landscapes, a rich fauna and flora, but also historical and important cultural sites.
The Park also has an exceptional geological heritage and an identity that is strongly marked by the link between man and stone. But the specificity of this Regional Natural Park does not stop there, because it has another exceptional asset. You can observe the purest starry sky in France thanks to its very low light pollution. It is called the Black Triangle. Stars, planets, milky way...

The property: 15th century castle classified as a historical monument. Built on a promontory overlooking the oak valley, the property extends over 19 hectares in total, including 4 hectares of truffle oaks, some woods and pastures. It includes beautiful formal gardens, 4 outbuildings, a carriage house converted into a 470m2 reception room with a professional kitchen that has already welcomed Michelin-starred chefs, a swimming pool, as well as a windmill built in 1670 that is classified as a historical monument. Although it has not been grinding since 1936, its mechanism is still in perfect working order. The current castle was built on the foundations of a former 13th century fortified castle, of which there are still vestiges at the north and south ends of the main building. It offers about 1,500 m2 of living space, including 600 m2 for the castle. It is the only property in the Lot department with two listed historic buildings.
The chateau has been completely renovated while retaining its period features such as a superb stone spiral staircase, large fireplaces, tiled and flagstone floors, ceilings 5 metres high and more, underfloor central heating on all floors with Wiesman boiler. Ideally designed and positioned, the château is on a human scale. Easy to live in, comfortable on a daily basis, it is also extremely bright. The property is both quiet and private. The quality of the renovation of both the chateau and the outbuildings provides a magical living environment.

- Dovecote T2.

- House undergoing renovation of approx. 300m2, which can be integrated or separated from the property.
