What Oliver loves…
- This unique château is full of character and old-fashioned French charm – we especially love the ornate drawing room and the tower bedroom with its canopied circular bed.
- It’s an amazing place for families with its 5-a-side football pitch, mini golf course and its brilliant sports hall with badminton, ping pong, table tennis and more!
- Spend lazy summer days canoeing or boating on the Lot River at a nearby Base de Loisir.
- With its log-burning fire and central heating, it's also a magical place in the cooler months, especially Christmas and New Year.
- An honesty bar in the wine cellar allows you to sample some excellent French wine.
- Historic Cahors is just half an hour away, surrounded by glorious vineyards producing some of the world's best Malbec wines

South of the Lot River, just half an hour from the historic town of Cahors, this château is in a stunning setting surrounded by fifty acres of private grounds with wonderful views of the Lot valley.
There’s a pretty village within a 4km drive with a boulangerie, small shop and post office whilst the riverside village of Luzech (7km) offers further shops and amenities as well as a couple of restaurants and a Wednesday morning market. Luzech’s setting on the banks of two parts of the river is especially picturesque. A little further east, head to a brilliant Base de Loisirs on the Lot with supervised swimming in July and August as well as a river beach, canoe hire, paddle-boarding, pedalos and a play area.
The nearest town is beautiful Cahors (23km), well-known for its historic sights including Le Pont Valentré, now a UNESCO World Heritage site. Explore the medieval historic centre, discover picturesque squares, narrow lanes and some excellent restaurants. The Wednesday and Saturday morning markets are a particular delight selling all sorts of seasonal local produce such as truffles, foie gras and Quercy melons.
Across this region you will be able to visit many vineyards and wineries around Cahors, some of them famous for producing some of the finest Malbec grapes in the world. Private tours and tastings can be arranged.
From May to September take a river cruise along the Lot in Cahors or in July and August you can take a day boat trip as far as the incredibly beautiful village of Saint-Cirq-Lapopie (50km). This village is known to be one of France’s classified ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ and can also be reached in around an hour by car. It’s an enchanting place with flower-filled lanes, little art galleries and delightful shops selling all sorts of artisan products – it’s an area that has inspired artists for many years.
A little closer to home, Puy-l'Évêque (20km) is another charming village, perched above the Lot with its beautiful stone houses and maze of narrow lanes and steps. Take a boat trip along the river from here and hire canoes or pedaloes. Market-lovers should visit on a Tuesday morning; other wonderful markets in the area include Montcuq (17km) on a Sunday morning and Prayssac (15km) on a Friday.
There are many historic châteaux to visit in the Lot-et-Garonne from the incredible ruins of Château de Bonaguil (38km), the pretty gardens and surroundings of Château de Fumel (40km) and the especially beautiful Chateau de Gavaudun (50km).
Other classified ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ that can be reached in under an hour include Monpazier (54km) and Monflanquin (55km) or head further north to the Dordogne river with Domme (55km), La Roque-Gageac (56km) and Beynac-et-Cazenac (63km). Take a boat trip along the river, hire canoes, explore Farmer’s markets and discover the glorious landscapes of the Dordogne.
Rocamadour (70km) is another outstanding place of natural beauty with its perfectly preserved town built on the edge of a cliff, perhaps combined with a trip to charming Gourdon (49km), one of many gorgeous towns of the Lot region.

A relatively new addition to France, the Midi-Pyrénées was created to surround the cultural capital of Toulouse in the late 1970s. You might think that its relative youth would mean the Midi-Pyrénées is short on character or identity, but remember, this is France we’re talking about – the whole country is steeped in history and tradition. Encompassing parts of Gascony, Languedoc, the Gers and several others, you’ll get a varied slice of the whole French experience here, not least if you stay at one of our beautiful chateaux in the Midi-Pyrénées! And if you want to discover the best of what the region has to offer, our Midi-Pyrénées travel guide is here to show you where to go, what to eat and how you can make the best of your break with some amazing activities.
It’s just a short drive from the banks of the Lot River, wonderful for picnics and walking. Within a ten-minute drive, just east of Luzech, there’s a Base de Loisirs that has supervised river swimming in July and August alongside pedaloes, canoes, a river beach and a play area.
Drive to the beautiful village of Puy-l'Évêque (20km) and take a boat trip up the river after a morning exploring the historic lanes. There’s also summer canoe hire, pedaloes as well as electric bike hire here.
You can also take lovely boat trips along the river from Cahors, including a day trip (July/August) to the stunning St Cirq Lapopie. When exploring Cahors, look out for the little road-train that is ideal for young families and tired legs.
History lovers can visit the fascinating caves at Grotte du Pech Merle with its prehistoric paintings or discover incredible châteaux such as the ruins of Château de Bonaguil and the especially beautiful Château de Gavaudun.
There’s a waterpark just south of Cahors, L'Archipel, open in the summer with slides and chutes or, a little further afield, families will love Parc en Ciel (52km) with its tree-top adventure courses, play areas and a natural bathing pool.

First class facilities (ping pong, badminton, boules, subuteo, bikes, darts, snooker, etc etc), lovely convenient pool and outside dining area. Very handsome comfortable house, imaginatively laid out.
Chateau Camelot provided an unforgettable holiday for our family party of 13 adults and four children under nine. Helped, admittedly, by one week of perfect summer weather, we found it impossible to make full use of all the many facilities in the time available. The plethora of outside attractions in this area also drew us away from the chateau's myriad facilities.
The chateau, set in its own 50 acre parkland, is comfortable and spacious, with an abundant supply of hot water, which is paradoxically essential, even in 30 degree weather.
The kitchen is well-appointed and we'll-equipped and gives onto an outside dining area (with huge table), which in turn gives immediate access to a splendid pool and small jacuzzi. Also, beside the pool were several fig trees. These were full of fruit, which the owner kindly said we should plunder at will. (We did just that).
I feel that the website does not do full justice to what the chateau offers and is slightly inaccurate in some respects:
Kitchen - in addition to the two small fridges and separate freezer, there is now a full size fridge too. We were never able to fill all of these.
The basement wine cellar also includes an unmentioned fridge.
The drawing room's TV has several British free-to-view channels, which were not mentioned. Inclement weather might make that facility very useful.
The chateau's orientation (south facing) means that two outside terraces/seating areas are essential on hot sunny days, so that one can move with the sun (or move out of the sun on blistering days). The chateau does mention this facility, but does not stress it's importance. I think that some potential guests who are not familiar with the French sun in this part of the country, might, when comparing one venue with another, underestimate this crucial factor.
Finally, we did have one minor temporary problem with the heating of the pool. Once notified, the owner reacted swiftly and effectively, and it was immediately solved. Further, the owner says that a heat pump will soon be installed as back-up, so that this minor glitch is highly unlikely to recur in the future.
After such a successful, but too brief, stay in this property, we would highly recommend it to others. We would love to return one year. If we do not, it would only be because of our party size or our choice of alternative geography.
We were a group of 18 adults who have had the most wonderful holiday at Chateau Camelot. Our expectations were undoubtedly exceeded in every respect. The views from the large pool, the Chateau and the immaculately kept grounds are exquisite. The Chateau itself is impressive being abundant in space, exceptionally clean, carefully decorated and every room wonderfully comfortable. The kitchen was fantastically well equipped for mass catering with ample fridge and freezer space. We wanted for nothing with a well furnished sports-hall, locally and very affordably stocked wine cellar and a pool that enjoyed the sun throughout the day (which was big enough for the entire group to enjoy be that in the pool or lounging by the side). As if all that wasn't enough the real thank you for making our holiday so wonderful goes to the truly superb manager of the property, Eric. He went above and beyond to ensure our enjoyment and make everything as convenient and easy as possible. As the organiser of the holiday I can't thank him enough, he ensured our privacy was respected yet he was readily available if we needed during our stay. Eric's help was invaluable in helping me organise the trip before our arrival (activities, food and general organisation amongst other things)...he is undoubtedly a major selling point for the chateau! You cannot fail to enjoy yourselves at Chateau Camelot and I and the group are unable to recommend the Chateau, the location and Eric highly enough!
The Chateau was transformed into a perfect wedding venue
We stayed at the Chateau in the week leading up to our wedding which we had organised on the weekend following our arrival. We found the chateau to be an excellent venue for our group of 15 adults on self catering basis. The chateau is accurately described on the website and the owners were always discreetly on hand to help out where required. The local town is only a 5 minute drive for small shopping and fresh bread and the town of Cahors with large supermarket and shops is only 20 minutes away. Most our guests arrived at Toulouse airport which is 1,5 hours drive away. As it was May we were a bit unlucky with the weather but due to the excellent accommodation and sportcomplex we managed to have a great week. There is more than enough to do at the Chateau, from drinks and games in the stylish wine cellar to sports and fitness at the sport complex. The patio area is a good place to sit even when the whether isn't good and we spend many nights out there. The Chateau is well positioned, both the interior and exterior have been a true labour of love which can be seen in the detail and quality of the finishings. The kitchen was well equipped and well used during our cooking competition as well as having a lovely barbeque at the weekend. Prior to choosing the chateau for our wedding / holiday venue we met up with the owners to discuss the possibilities and see the chateau which was very helpful.. they were very helpful before and during our stay and have done most of the organisation for our wedding as well as ongoing presence and support on our wedding day. Which gave us the perfect day! The Chateau was transformed into a perfect wedding venue for our ceremony and for our wedding meal with a large dining table in the main dining / living room which comfortably seated our group and guests totalling 25 persons, and even accommodated a pianist playing live music. We then had fire works to finish which was spectacular!!
Wonderful week. Beautiful scenery, lovely house and games room - we had a great family holiday
I want to stay for longer!
Can we please stay for another month - best holiday ever.
Such a lovely week at the chateau
Just arrived safely home but wanted to say again that we all had such a lovely week last week at the chateau, everything was so lovely and we were all relaxed, just showing everyone back home our lovely photos, thanks again.
So much to do, Fun for everyone
We all had an absolutely wonderful holiday, great part of France, and a delightful house with so much to do
Really great holiday with plenty to do
Fabulous. Wow. Just incredible!!
We had the most wonderful week which we will never forget
Best holiday we have had
We've been to France for the last three summers and this was, by far, the best holiday we have had
Our time at Chateau Camelot
We were a large party ranging from 13 to 65 and everyone was happy. The sports complex was great, with badminton, ping-pong, darts, bikes etc and the pool was a good size. The enormous shaded patio area at the front looks out over hills and was good for evening meals. The smaller patio by the pool gets sun from mid-morning. The bedrooms are spacious and the showers/baths/loos are modern. The sitting room downstairs manages to feel comfortable and cosy even though its so huge. We were self catering and appreciated the modern, practical kitchen - 3 fridges! - we had no trouble cooking for 20. Isolated and very quiet. Great cycling though very hilly.
Amazing house - hope to be back next year
Plenty to do for everyone
We had a family holiday for 15 of us, ranging in age from 11 to 70, with plenty to do for everyone. Lots of time was spent in the super pool and the sports barn was very popular with the young ones - they even organised a badminton tournament which everyone joined in! We enjoyed eating out in the evenings on the front patio, with it's huge table and beautiful views - a 'favourite place' every evening. The side patio was used for breakfasts and barbecues. The Chateau, built by Chris as a real labour of love, is beautifully situated, with wonderful views and an ideal base for exploring the area if you can drag yourself away. Lots of room in the Chateau for all our party to spread out - even get lost if wished!! Lynne and Chris live on site, 'hidden' behind the sports barn. You wouldn't know they are there unless you need them at which time they are very helpful and friendly. Lynne was very helpful when I was making our booking, don't know how many e-mails we exchanged but I felt I knew her before we arrived!! We thoroughly recommend the Chateau for a family get-together. No one should every be bored, whatever age!

I loved it here - you have to come and see it for yourself!
