Swim, fish and kayak on the serene River Lot from Chateau Cayac, a luxury chateau in Aquitaine with its own jetty and direct river access. This house on the edge of a pretty village sits within 5 acres of private gardens with mature trees. With its round turreted staircase and balconied landing, the chateau is a fairytale setting. Enjoy a large heated swimming pool, covered outdoor dining on the tiled terrace, table tennis, a full-size pool table and Satellite TV.
The chateau's interior has been lovingly restored and refurbished to provide luxury accommodation. The 7 bedrooms, most with en-suite bathrooms, are furnished with a mix of antique and contemporary furniture and decorated to a high standard. There's also a cottage available to rent if you bring staff or want more flexibility for sleeping arrangements.
You're just steps from the village of Fongrave, which has a small shop, post office and restaurant. The Lot et Garonne region is famous for plum trees, so make sure to find locally grown prunes dipped in chocolate. In the mood to sightsee? Villeneuve-sur-Lot, a 20-minute drive, has arcaded shops, a historic church and medieval architecture.
This riverside chateau is 45 minutes from the Bergerac airport.
There are 7 bedrooms inside the chateau: 4 doubles, 2 triples and 1 suite sleeping 4. There are 6 en-suite bathrooms. The rooms are furnished with a mixture of french antique and good quality contemporary furniture, finished to a very high standard.
The owners appreciate that sometimes older children do not want to share a room or that some guests bring their au pairs, cooks or grandparents who may prefer to sleep independently. In order to give more flexibility of sleeping arrangements the cottage is available to rent by the guests staying at the Chateau, by prior arrangement. There is a double bedroom and a bedroom with 3 single beds. There is a separate lounge area, bathroom and kitchen also. Please note that a small additional charge is made for the use of the cottage and the maximum number of guests remains at 18.

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.
