Villa overview

It is owned by the former president of one of the most well-known jewelry companies in the world.

The owner of this 15th-century château fell in love with the estate's medieval architecture and Renaissance style and decided to restore it to its former splendor.

The estate's origins date back to the 1100s. Soon after, it was given the highly regarded French status of Monument historique.

The owner, who also served as the first president of a well-known Parisian art foundation, features modern artwork all over his mansion, from sculptures by his close friend César Baldaccini to the charming chapel Gérard Garouste designed.

We particularly adore the three Figuration Libre painters' frescoes that are on display in the Pigeonnier, a 15-room mansion with six columns, from the 17th century.

Contact us right away to make a reservation or learn more.

Historic beds, fireplaces, and other opulent features can be found scattered throughout additional bedrooms, including the Art Nouveau bathroom with its magnificent tiles and bathtub.
The great living areas include a domed living room that was formerly a grain store from the fifteenth century, a second lounge with an engraved fireplace from the Renaissance, a library with caryatid statues in the games room, and a music room with a piano where Elton John used to perform.
Enjoy a candlelit meal in the arched dining room with family and friends while enjoying the excellent food of the Quercy and Périgord areas, prepared by the castle's talented cook.
Request a Michelin-starred chef to prepare a feast, of course with exquisite wine from the estate, for an extra touch of decadence.
Since the 16th century, the estate's extensive vineyard has been producing Malbec, historically the favourite wine of French kings.
Under the skillful direction of one of the greatest oenologists in the world, the vines were resurrected in the late 20th century, and today Château Du Malbec's wines are regarded as some of the best in the world.
You can access the estate's winery through an underground tunnel, and a private tour is offered.
With a glass of Malbec in hand, step outside to take in the magnificent views of the castle's grounds and the surrounding countryside.
Take a leisurely stroll around the planted grounds, relax by a lovely fountain, visit the heated pool with its underwater speakers, or play tennis on the exclusive court.
This location is ideal for both passive and active relaxation, with bikes, a pétanque court, and lovely walking trails.
Visit further vineyards and wineries, explore beautiful riverside towns by boat, and spend time in the historic town of Cahors, which is home to the Pont Valentré, a famous bridge that is now a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Gastronomes will enjoy value the château's proximity to several great French restaurants, including two Michelin starred locations within a 10-minute drive.
Cahor's lively twice-weekly market is a must-visit.
You can go for a walk along a portion of the Saint-Jacques-de-Compostelle route, a horseback ride through rolling countryside, or you can even travel up north to kayak and canoe the Dordogne.
Before returning to your spectacular, creative, and historic French château, take in the breathtaking surroundings.
