An exceptional opportunity to buy a 12th century castle in a magnificent park enjoying a very quiet and exclusive environment. This superb property, consisting of a very large main building flanked by a square tower and a round tower, has been lovingly restored by the owner over many years. It is in excellent condition and includes many original antique elements. (fireplaces, mullioned windows) There are eleven bedrooms and the current owners indicate that about thirty people can stay there. There is also a large entrance, two large living rooms, a library and a small chapel.
Outside, the park is landscaped with lawns, shrubs and trees of various species. There are several rest and relaxation areas as well as a large well-kept swimming pool with its pool house.
The castle would be ideal for organising holiday stays and/or events. The Lot and Aveyron rivers offer the possibility of kayaking and other water sports, there are stables and a playground nearby. Many long-distance hiking trails (GR) used by pilgrims to Santiago de Compostela in the surrounding area. Charged with history, the castle has been awarded the "Historic Heritage" label and about thirty dolmens and burial mounds in the vicinity attest to the site's prehistoric origins.
Located in the heart of the Quercy Regional Park, the castle is protected from any noise or visual pollution.
In addition there is the possibility to purchase the Logis des Bordes which is offered separately but can be added to the overall package if required.
