About the home
On a Lot Valley hillside, this individual Perigordian style chateau, set in 50 private acres has 9 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, and features a balustrade L-shaped solar heated pool and domed Jacuzzi. There is also a 5 hole target golf course on site.
The Chateau Joncaises is set in attractive grounds, and with a cruise down the River Lot included in all rentals this is the ideal way to enjoy the surrounding countryside. A large indoor sports complex can also be found within the Chateau Joncaises grounds and an on site beautician is available offering massage, reki and beauty treatments to help make your holiday really special.
15 years in the making (designed and built by the writer/artist owner), the romantic exterior is complimented by neo-classic and ornate interiors, with detailed gilded carvings and carved panelling. Ambience of a bygone age is further reflected by works of art and antiques within the Chateau Joncaises.
