Situated in a peaceful rural location of Lot-et-Garonne and adjoining Aquitaine and the Dordogne, Chateau Seyches is a light, bright and charming turreted chateau from the early 18th century with beautiful countryside views.

The house sleeps up to 12 guests in total comfort and has five bedrooms, one bathroom and three shower rooms. It is lovingly furnished to a very high standard, with a tasteful mix of antique and contemporary furniture. It is full of period features without sacrificing any homliness, comfort or charm.

A north facing terrace at the back of the house (as well as the sumptuous acre of grounds surrounding the house) provide plenty of sunny and shaded outdoor space. This is one chateau that's primarily designed to be flexible - there are plenty of areas for play, where families can enjoy each other’s company, as well as quieter nooks for those who prefer to read a book or snooze in peace.

Set in three hectares of grounds and farmland, Chateau Seyches boasts stunning country views. The house is surrounded by its gardens and mature trees, and the pool faces south to ensure it gets as much of the glorious French sunshine as possible!

What you should know…

  • It's an old building with high ceilings, so there's lots of stairs - but there is accommodation on the ground floor for those who might be challenged by a staircase.
  • The rural location means the driveway is adjacent to a farm.
  • The nearest village is 2km away.

The substantial eat-in kitchen and living areas are on the ground floor, comprising a formal dining room, sitting room, a study and an intimate salon. The dining room and living room open out on to the garden and pool area.

There are four bedrooms on the first floor, and all come with pretty, leafy views. The master suite has its own sitting room and is set across the entire top floor of the property. Most rooms have dual aspect windows. The study on the ground floor also has a luxury sofa bed and can be used as a double bedroom.

There is also a portable bbq for you to enjoy summer.

The owners have recently updated the swimming pool and surrounding terrace - the pool is heated with steps leading down, a nice area for children to splash around in. The size of the swimming pool is 11mx4.5m.

  • A wonderful week for all

    Posted by Caroline on 22/08/2016

    Two families spent an amazing week here at Chateau Seyches. Everything is so accessible and we had a ball in this wonderful chateau! Thank you to Neil who looked after us so well. A wonderful trip arranged by the gorgeous couple Sylvie and Pascal who cooked some AMAZING food for picnics and supper.

  • Special celebration

    Posted by Susanne on 28/07/2016

    We absolutely love this corner of the world and our stay at Chateau Seyches has been absolutely perfect. A 'very significant birthday' was celebrated with friends and family from Australia, England and USA. We couldn't have wished for a better environment, better company, better views... and wow! better catering provided by the fabulous Sylvie and Pascal. Memories have been created. Thank you

  • A very enjoyable holiday

    Posted by Adam on 30/04/2016

    A very enjoyable holiday in your lovely home. Four generation met here aged 3 to 86 from England, Germany and Spain. A beautiful part of France we haven't visited before.

  • What a place!!!

    Posted by Phil on 26/11/2014

    Dear Rahul,
    Thanks once again for sharing Chateau Seyches with us, it is a very special place.
    There are many but in particular the whole house had a good vintage ambience and the simplicity of the furnishings enhanced this. The use of a big mirror in the sitting room worked well. We all particularly liked the second sitting room study. The use of natural hard floors with rugs enhance the very grounding feel the house has and this made us relax and enjoy. Beds very comfortable.
    Beds, linen and towels were of great quality and so too the kitchen cooking options - range and induction hob in particular. Bathrooms were great too and the pool furnishings very comfortable!
    Sonos was a bonus too...we are now converts to this form of listening to music having experienced it at Chateau Seyches.
    In summary a lovely holiday home, welcoming and relaxing with a sense of antiquity.
    A nice touch to share the house guide ahead of time, so we could hit the ground running.
    Overall an idyllic and very special rental, which we look forward to return to in 2015.
    Thanks again for your most kind help and was much appreciated. The level of personal care from you made the property feel more than just a rental and more like the home of a friend. thank you.
    Best regards!
