Chateau de Lauzel

Ground Floor
The welcoming vaulted entrance hall, which is connected to the main circular staircase, will take your breath away from the moment you enter. The Hall opens onto a large south facing terrace, which offers magnificent views of the valley and the Chateau Commarque. Also on this level is a practical utility room and the Chateau's cellar.

First Floor
The first floor position of the salon allows light to flood the room, and there is ample seating for larger groups. The spacious, well-equipped kitchen provides all of the equipment necessary to create culinary delights, and the fabulous dining room has plenty of space for the family to enjoy a meal together.

Second Floor
The second floor provides two fantastic en-suite double bedrooms, each equipped with a shower, hand basin and WC. The shower rooms are finished to a high standard, with both walls and floors decorated with white mosaic tiling.

Third Floor
The third floor houses the superb octagonal room, which comes complete with a 2m diameter Jacuzzi, shower, hand basin, bidet and WC.

Small Tower
The Small Tower contains two beautifully furnished single bedrooms, one at ground floor level and one on the first floor. Each has its own wet room containing a hand basin, shower and WC.

The square Donjon contains two further double bedrooms on the third and fourth floor. These are not en-suite, but are within easy reach of the stunning octagonal Jacuzzi Room.

Access to all upper levels is by circular stone staircases which are not suitable for young children or disabled persons.

In the cliff face to the east of the Chateau is a huge, troglodyte Pigeonnier, currently gated and inaccessible to the public. Futher up the valley is the site of the Venus de Laussel, classified as a ’Site Historique,’ dating back some 25,000 years.

On the western boundary of the site is the Abri du Cap Blanc, containing notable Magdalenian friezes which is open to the public.

As the site is set on a hillside, terminating in a vertical drop between 15 and 20 metres into the valley, the stunning terraces and gardens occur on a series of delightful levels. Outside of the wall of the Chateau’s courtyard there is a large, traditional, formal parterre garden with shady seating areas.

At a lower level, adjacent to the 17th century chapel, is a D-shaped swimming pool, 11m x 11m, protected by an audible security system which complies with the french law.

Please note - due to the site contours and cliff face, families with young children are recommended to keep them under supervision at all times.

Additional Services & Catering
Within the courtyard of the Chateau is the Guardian’s house where the Guardian, his young family and two dogs live. The guardian and his wife can provide meals, laundry and extra cleaning if required for an additional charge. Please enquire for details.

Area description

Chateau De Lauzel is situated in the Dordogne, in the South West region of France and lies between the village of Les Eyzies-de-Tayac-Sireuil (5 km) and the medieval town of Sarlat-la-Caneda (15 km) in the canton of Marquay (5 km).

The surrounding area includes many Cro-Magnon sites. Les Eyzies, the world capital of pre-history, is located on the River Vezere and has a new National Palaeolithic Museum which displays an excellent account of this period. The well-known cave of Lascaux is approximately 15 km north east of Les Eyzies.

This is a region of numerous Chateaux and historical abbeys and contains many villages classified as ’The Most Beautiful Villa’s in France.’ The region also includes several ’bastide’ (fortified) villages built by the English and French during the 15th century such as Monpazier and Beaumont.

The local rivers, the Dordogne and the Vezere, provide canoeing expeditions and site seeing river boats. Hot air ballooning, helicopter trips and tourist flights in light aircrafts are also offered locally.

The town of Sarlat has a season of many exhibitions, musicians and nocturnal events together with bustling market days and a complete variety of restaurants and shops of all standards.

Local Activities include:
- Canoeing on the Vezere river
- Dordogne river boat trips
- Helicopter and hot air ballooning
- Prehistoric Caves
- Local farmhouse restaurants

The summer climate from Easter to September varies from 20 degrees at Easter to 35 degrees in July and August.

The Chateau was completely restored several years ago to a high standard by the current owner who is an award winning British Architect.
