We have a small rowing boat for our guests to use, which is ideal for fishing. Or you can fish from the jetty.
The lot et garonne is a beautiful, peaceful region of France. The land is farmed and famous for its plum trees and the production of prunes. Fresh, locally grown produce is available from the farm shop or from the local weekly markets. During July and August the village comes alive with the Thursday evening market, an enjoyable evening of dancing, music and enjoying the delicious local produce. This is an experience not to be missed. You can purchase locally grown and reared food and have it cooked for you straight away. Locals and visitors all dine together on long tables while enjoying an evening of music.
The Chateau is on the banks of the lovely river Lot, which is excellent for fishing and canoeing. The area around the chateau is ideal for cycling and there are many small bastide towns to explore.

The chateau was an absolute dream

I would just like to say what an amazing week we all had in France. The chateau was an absolute dream and when we pulled into the drive for the first time I was absolutely blown away by how beautiful it was. Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to stay in your stunning chateau with its breathtaking location.
Will be highly recommending the chateau

I wanted to contact you to say how much we enjoyed our stay at the chateau. We had such great intentions of travelling all around the region on day trips but were just as happy to stay beside the pool and enjoy all the home's amenities. All in all we had a wonderful holiday and will be highly recommending the chateau to all out friends.
'The Princess Castle'
Posted by Archie Forbes Adam & Familyon 11/08/2010
Having just returned from the chateau everyone in our party agreed that they'd had the holiday of a lifetime. The setting for the chateau is incredibly idyllic and Angela and Steve had thought of every little detail to make our stay perfect. It is one of the most heavenly spots I have ever stayed at, the only downside was leaving! I cannot wait to return as my 3 year old daughter called it 'the princess castle' and this time for hopefully longer than a week.
We had a fantastic holiday

We had a fantastic holiday in your wonderful chateau. It was certainly the best we have stayed in yet, with so many lovely touches to make our break run smoothly. We very much hope to return, I can't wait to go back. We were considering staying on for a third week - it was so relaxing! Well thank you for allowing us to share your beautiful home and thank you for the welcoming flowers, wine etc. It feels strange not to have met you when we have enjoyed your hospitality from afar.

We had an absolutely lovely time, everyone agreed that the chateau was so spacious and comfortable and we wouldn't change a thing. There is so much to do and it's so beautiful. It's hard to imagine anywhere that caters so well for every age group.

We had a fantastic time at the chateau, it was the ideal place to stay with a large family and had everything we needed. All in all, we had a wonderful time, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the chateau to friends.
Turreted and dating from the 1600s, the Chateau du Marquis de Tracy sits in 50 acres of parkland in central France's Bourbonnais region. The grounds include ponds, a petanque court and a lovely swimming pool, while the elegant interior is furnished with antiques. Eight bedrooms, sleeps 20; booked through Simply Chateau (0845 389 9582, simplychateau.com), for a week this summer it costs between £2,135 and £2,585.
