Create an itinerary including Chateau de Cenevieres
Climb the steps to the terraces of Chateau de Cenevieres for picturesque views of the river valley and lush countryside. Go inside to view traces of the original fresco representing the kidnapping of Helen and the burning of Troy. As you approach from the road, the chateau has an interesting profile. Instead of looking like a single building, it appears as a village filled with houses, châteaux, storefronts, perhaps a basilica. As you move closer, you realize why: This 13th-century castle was significantly altered from the 14th to 16th centuries. Builders replaced the Gothic openings with large Renaissance windows and pierced the medieval defensive walls with dormers.

  • Outstanding experience. We had booked a guided tour but the Guide noticed that we were not following the French language explanation. She kindly arranged a separate tour for us in English. Amazingly, it was the chateau’s owner who gave us a personal tour, sharing the chateau’s fascinating history and how it is managed today. Truly a memorable experience. Thank-you again Mr de de Braquilanges for your generosity of time and care for the chateau.
  • A beautiful castle in the Lot department of France We went to Saint Cirq Lapopie and somehow googled nearby places to visit! We came to this castle with minimal expectations but to our delight , it turned out to be an awesome and quite unforgettable experience Special thanks to our tour guide - Virginie Do visit if you get a chance
