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 C17th chapel, is a D-shaped swimming pool, 11m x 11m, protected by an audible security system which complies with the french law.

The Aquitaine/Dordogne region

Chateau De Lauzel is situated in Department 24, 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.

Saint Cyprien

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.
