The beautiful Chateau Cedre is blessed with its enviable location, half way between Bordeaux and Toulouse in the heart of Gascony and near enough to both the Dordogne and the Lot-et-Garonne.

This listed ‘Monument Historique’ was once an ancient fortress before becoming an Italian palace in the 17th century. Now it provides a setting full of elegant charm and authenticity where guests are treated to ancient stone arches and a majestic courtyard.

The 25 acres of private parkland are rich with 18th and 19th century plantations of Lebanese and Atlas cedar, cypress, oak, Siberian elm and no less than 100 different essences to discover hidden away in the vast grounds.

The south terrace boasts unrivalled panoramic views over the magical rural landscape and the bedrooms in 'the logis' offer views over the valley.

Accommodation at Chateau Cedre consists of two charming guest houses which accommodate up to 24 guests in 12 bedrooms with 8 bathrooms. These comfortable guest houses are full of warm and authentic features such as exposed beams, large fireplaces and terracotta and wooden floors.

The first guest house has 8 large bedrooms, with spectacular views, for up to 16 guests and 6 bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen and spacious living room. The second is ideal for a family with young children as it sleeps 8 plus a baby in 4 bedrooms. Similarly, this house is furnished with a fully equipped kitchen, a large living room with fireplace, private parking and a covered terrace. The two properties share a beautiful salt water swimming pool, with ample terrace and barbecue area.

Last but not least, guests at Chateau Cedre have access to a fantastic tennis court and a private fishing lake. There is also a boules pitch, table tennis, table football, badminton and swings, perfect to keep the little ones entertained.

The local villages are abundant with treasures including moonlit markets and Sunday antique and flea-markets. They also boast a delicious selection of locally produced cheeses, foie-gras, wine and Armagnac, with countless vineyards to visit and gastronomic festivals to attend.

For a more active holiday, canoeing, archery, accrobranche, tennis, horse riding and golf are all available nearby and the Landes Forest is ideal for a day of hiking or cycling; making Chateau Cedre perfect for all the family.

The area is steeped in history, with the Séviac Gallo-roman villa (the largest in Europe) only a short drive away, a fortified village and Henri IV Chateau a little further.

Chateau Cedre offers a magical setting rich in beauty, nature and history for the perfect holiday or celebration.

The Lot-et-Garonne region remains one of France's best kept secrets with all the attractive aspects of the Dordogne, yet without the crowds. There are the rolling hills, fields of sunflowers and beautiful, unspoilt countryside to explore and enjoy. Driving the the country lanes you will discover endless traditional market towns, picturesque villages and fruit orchards.

Local to the chateau is the small market village of Mezin where you will find a fortified church and a weekly Sunday market. The main town to visit is Agen with its lively streets with plenty of shopping opportunities and pavement cafes to simply relax and watch life pass you by. The surrounding area also boasts several of France's most beautiful villages which are certainly worth a visit.

Region

The pace of life in the Dordogne is languid, laid back and positively infectious. Relax in bucolic beauty as you drift along the Dordogne River, or wander among the forests and hillside of the Périgord Natural Park.

The foodie scene too, is a relaxed affair. Take your time over your lazy lunches of local duck, black truffles and goats cheese. If you’re feeling energetic, you can even hunt for them yourself. The wine here is second to none, with infamous grapes like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chenin Blanc all having a huge presence here.

The Dordogne is also brimming with history. Castles and chateaux are scattered throughout the region, among the enchanting medieval villages. History of an altogether more ancient sort can also be explored in the incredible prehistoric cave drawings of Lascaux and Grotte de Rouffignac.

Reviews

  • Sumptuous and Majestic Chateau

    Created on 04/10/2016

    Thank you for being a part of our wedding. We couldn't imagine a better place. Everything was perfect, from the splendid weather we had, to the sumptuous night we spent dancing in the majestic courtyard. All the guests loved the breathtaking view of the hills and of course the Armagnac … You were fantastic and very helpful hosts, despite our very bad French! Mille merci!

  • Unforgettable Event for us all!

    Created on 24/08/2016

    We wanted to thank you for your very warm welcome, your generous help and kindness. We have fond memories of our special day at the Château, making this event so unforgettable for all of us. Nobody stops reminding us how wonderful this day was. Thanks for letting us make this possible.

  • An exceptional place

    Created on 19/07/2016

    You own an exceptional site, take care of it! We can feel all the hard work you've accomplished for the renovation, into a site full of History. We were delighted and honored to spend our very special day here. The view of the hills from the terrace, at night with the full moon, will remain forever in our memory.
