CHATEAU JONCAISES

Villeneuve-sur-Lot area Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Chateau for rent with private pool, Jacuzzi & target golf

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 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.

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. Ambiance of a bygone age is further reflected by works of art and antiques within the Chateau Joncaises.

The large, carved oak front door leads to a grand hallway from which you will find the living room that offers comfortable sofas around a finely carved fireplace with a large wood burner, satellite TV, DVD player, and multi disc stereo. A huge, carved dining room table seats 16 easily and a grand piano also adorns the room. The kitchen is fully fitted, and includes range cooker with five burners, two ovens and a grill. Twin arches lead through to the breakfast room and the back door leads straight out to the rear terrace and pool. The tower bedroom is round in shape, with two windows and en suite shower room. Wi-Fi internet connection is present in the chateau so people can bring their own laptops.

Stairs from the main hallway lead into a small foyer containing an IT station, sink, and a door leading into a utility room. An archway leads into a round cellar wine bar featuring bespoke, carved centre table and seating for 12, subdued lighting, and a music system.

On the first floor there is access to a balcony over the front door, and another balcony and spiral staircase to the south, which overlooks the pool. There are 4 double bedrooms (two of which has an extra single bed). Two of these bedrooms have en suite bathroom facilities and incredible panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.

On the second floor two further double bedrooms can be accessed from the small central landing. These are served by a shower room with a WC and washbasin. Two twin bedded rooms with en suite shower rooms are also on this floor. Each bedroom has wardrobes and more than ample shelving.

To the north of the chateau is a 4,000 sq foot indoor sports complex. It provides a full size badminton court, two competition table tennis tables, a pool table, table football, darts and various gym and weight lifting equipment (including steppers, exercise bikes, orbital runners, inversion table, running machine, weight bench and multi gym).

Outside is the enclosed L-shaped heated swimming pool with safety gates, and extensive terracing and balustrading surrounding it. There are 13 sun loungers, 3 large parasols, side tables, and 2 large plastic dining tables with 16 chairs. There is also an Australian gas barbeque and the large front terrace with octagonal teak table with chairs and an umbrella. Beneath a large canopy is an additional long dining room table (seating 18). 50 acres of grounds with formal gardens surround the chateau, leading to a target golf course with 5 flags. Beyond which wild flower fields and oak woods cascade into deep valleys. Although the grounds are not fenced, the property lies at the end of a cul-de-sac holding just one other property. There is space for up to seven cars to park.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We were a large party ranging from 13 to 65 and everyone was happy. The sports complex was great, with badminton, ping-pong, darts, bikes etc and the pool was a good size. The enormous shaded patio area at the front looks out over hills and was good for evening meals. The smaller patio by the pool gets sun from mid-morning. The bedrooms are spacious and the showers/baths/loos are modern. The sitting room downstairs manages to feel comfortable and cosy even though its so huge. We were self catering and appreciated the modern, practical kitchen - 3 fridges! - we had no trouble cooking for 20. Isolated and very quiet. Great cycling though very hilly.

The Chateau was transformed into a perfect weddin

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Chateau in the week leading up to our wedding which we had organised on the weekend following our arrival. We found the chateau to be an excellent venue for our group of 15 adults on self catering basis. The chateau is accurately described on the website and the owners were always discreetly on hand to help out where required. The local town is only a 5 minute drive for small shopping and fresh bread and the town of Cahors with large supermarket and shops is only 20 minutes away. Most our guests arrived at Toulouse airport which is 1,5 hours drive away. As it was May we were a bit unlucky with the weather but due to the excellent accommodation and sportcomplex we managed to have a great week. There is more than enough to do at the Chateau, from drinks and games in the stylish wine cellar to sports and fitness at the sport complex. The patio area is a good place to sit even when the whether isn't good and we spend many nights out there. The Chateau is well positioned, both the interior and exterior have been a true labour of love which can be seen in the detail and quality of the finishings. The kitchen was well equipped and well used during our cooking competition as well as having a lovely barbeque at the weekend. Prior to choosing the chateau for our wedding / holiday venue we met up with the owners Chris and Lynne to discuss the possibilities and see the chateau which was very helpful.. Chris and Lynne were very helpful before and during our stay and have done most of the organisation for our wedding as well as ongoing presence and support on our wedding day. Which gave us the perfect day! The Chateau was transformed into a perfect wedding venue for our ceremony and for our wedding meal with a large dining table in the main dining / living room which comfortably seated our group and guests totalling 25 persons, and even accommodated a pianist playing live music. We then had fire works to finish which was spectacular!!
