We have just spent a glorious week at this magical place,which exceeded all our expectations. Everything was provided over and above our requirements on 5 separate holidays in chateaus in France this one was far and away the best we have ever stayed at. The splendid location on the river Lot enabled us to go boating and kayaking which were both provided, our family party of 11 enjoyed all the games provided,and of course spent hours in the swimming pool. The owners Angela and Steve were so friendly and so helpful.
Booked for a party of 14 adults to celebrate my 50th birthday. I researched a lot of chateau in advance and this ticked all the boxes. All the bedrooms are big and all but one are ensuite (last one has a huge shower and toilet room next door). The chateau has been tastefully decorated with many thoughtful personal touches. It’s spacious and you don’t feel like you are on top of each other. Plenty of crockery and cutlery to use 2 huge fridge freezers in the main house and another fridge down by the pool which also has a well stocked kitchen area.
A local kayak company picked us up from the Chateau and dropped us 11kms up the river and we had an easy 2 hr kayak right back to the river at the bottom of the Chateau (with a cheeky pit stop at one of the villages en route). We also used the bikes and did a nice 12 mile loop!
The housekeeper Kim cooked an excellent 3 course meal for my birthday. Superb. I would highly recommend her. More fun to have a catered evening in this beautiful chateau.
We only ate out a couple of times including at the new restaurant in Fongrave. This was lovely and well worth a visit.
The supermarket was only a short drive away in the next village. All very accessible.
We were all blown away by the Chateau. And one day We would love to return.
The chateau is incredible! Stunning property with a fabulous garden that backs on to the river, there is also a swimming pool. The rooms in the chateau are huge, each with own private bathroom facilities. There is plenty to do at the chateau, including bike riding and kayaking.
We had a meal cooked for us by Kim, the housekeeper. We all thoroughly enjoyed this, her cooking was superb.
Would definitely recommend this chateau for friends and family, and would happily go back and stay there again.
This was my third visit to the Chateau and I'm already looking forward to my fourth. Located in the peaceful French countryside, Chateau Caillac is the perfect getaway for large groups of friends and family. The Chateau itself is situated right next to the Lot river and is close enough for a quick cycle into the local villages (bikes provided). There's plenty to keep you occupied at the Chateau too (boats, table tennis, pool table...).
I spent most of my week by the beautiful pool area, which comes with outdoor BBQ equipment - excellent for evening meals. The surrounding area is picturesque, relaxing and quaint. If you're looking to get away from it all, then Chateau Caillac is the most luxurious option you could choose.
Chateau Caillac was just perfect. Comfortable and spacious rooms with ample bathrooms. Lovely setting, with own river frontage. Popular pool and poolside facilities Nothing lacking in any department - even the jigsaw was complete!
The area was plentifully supplied with interesting places to visit and with good restaurants. I wish we had booked for longer!
We have just spent the most fantastic week in this simply stunning chateau. The perfect retreat for a large group. There is so much to do (bikes, boat, kayak, table tennis, pool table) and so much space for the children to run around in. The pool is great with a wonderful BBQ area and the chateau itself is just oozing charm and comfort. Very thoughtful owners have really thought of everything - really couldn't have asked for anything more. Can't recommend highly enough!
We have just returned from an amazing week at the absolutely incredible Chateau Caillac - truly a stunning venue for our family group holiday with lots of fabulous little touches which made our stay truly memorable for us all , from the baby through to grandparents - Thankyou
