Wine tasting and tours


The regions of Gaillac, Cahors and the hillsides of Quercy are very rich in wines. Tasting tours are organized to discover this beautiful wine region. Local producers will guide you and invite you to discover their organic and biodynamic methods. The Figeac region has started producing wine again after more than 200 years of absence!

Cultural sites


The region  is full of stunning castles and many villages, listed as 'most beautiful villages in France': St-Cirq-Lapopie, Figeac, Cordes-sur-Ciel, etc ... You will be amazed by the richness of historically significant sites from the Hundred Years' War. The mysteries of Rocamadour will  be revealed to you and

you will also find incredible caves such as the Pech-Merle and Padirac.

Aquatic sports


You will have the choice between the Aveyron, the Lot and the Célé rivers to satisfy all your canyoning, rafting, kayaking and swimming desires. Our expert partners will guide you, from 'family' to 'daredevil' courses!

Along the Célé valley and the Quercy Causses, you can find hidden away bathing spots on the outskirts of the villages.



The region is one of the richest for cyclists of all levels. A little family ride along the canal? An entire day (with or without a guide) to discover the hills of the Quercy and the Gorges de l'Aveyron? Your host can offer detailed advice on suitable routes.



A large selection of hikes, catered for all levels, is accessible from the chateau. The pilgramage routes to Santiago de Compostela are particularly well known in this region. We can offer you walks with or without a guide.

Themed stays


Our specialty! We offer week-long and weekend courses bringing people together with similar interests : History of Music; Well-being; Choral workshops; Cooking courses; etc.  


"Our hosts were extremely kind and made our week very simple. They organised all our activities and we spent an unforgettable week, taking advantage of the great local food and wines!"
