About the property

Fully refurbished property set in 5 acres of mature gardens, with pool.

A property first stood on this site in 1551, the château was built in 1720, partly demolished and rebuilt in 1830. We refurbished the property in 2005, converting it into a more manageable 3 apartments whilst keeping many original features.

Our apartment occupies the entire front ground floor of the château with it's own entrance leading onto the gardens and pool.

The accommodation comprises:

Main bedroom with double bed and en suite shower room.

Second bedroom with double bed.

Third bedroom with two single beds.

Fully equipped kitchen (except for dishwasher), table that seats 6.

Spacious lounge, with French doors onto garden. SKY (Freeview) TV, DVD player.

Dining room with table that seats10.

Bathroom with shower and bath.

Long entrance hall.

Good quality furnishings throughout,ample lighting, indoor games cupboard, croquet and boules.

5 acres of well maintained and mature gardens including a swimming pool (not heated or maintained in winter).

The area: Aquitaine was in English hands early in the last millennium, many battles between the English and French took place, but they are a thing of the past, at least on the battlefields, and the Aquatainees are very welcoming once you get used to their ways. (You need to practice shrugging your shoulders and saying 'non' before you go!) There is history everywhere, whether you go to the main towns of Bordeaux and Toulouse, or the smaller towns of Bergerac, Marmande, Agen, La Reole and Eymet to name a few.

Stunning architecture abounds, but even more abundant are the vineyards and if it is a wine experience you are after then you are spoilt for choice with many world famous vineyards and wine regions within easy reach, but even more interesting are less famous 'propietor' vineyards.

Beyond the towns and vineyards are the many small villages (for example Duras, Levignac, St. Foy le Grande, etc..), again steeped in history, with good eating and ideal places to people watch.

Finally don't forget the countryside and the rivers/canals

Activities: France is for relaxing, Aquitaine is seriously relaxing and the château is the ideal place to unwind. But there is more to France than relaxing and for example you can:

Be sporty - golf, tennis, gym, horse riding, are all close by. If its watching that you prefer then there is plenty of Rugby and football played in the area.

Go walkies - Beautiful countryside or along the Canal Du Midi or the rivers Garonne and Lot.

Explore - Towns and villages (Bordeaux and Toulouse, for History, Architecture and serious shopping). Maramande, Bergerac, La Reole, Eymet and a whole host more for history and architecture and less serious shopping.

Get Active - Swim in the lake at CastelJaloux, climb, explore the trees and slide 400m across the lake.

Taste the wine - everywhere.

Day trips to the surf beaches on the Atlantic coast or the Pyrennees, even pop over into Spain whilst you are there.

Relax in the many spas and thermal baths that can be found in the area

Things you do not normally get told:

The Château has been refurbished, but it is still old and needs to be treated sympathetically. For example windows and doors may be a bit stiff. There are shutters on every door and window again they can be stiff.

The road in front of the château (D708) can have a bit of traffic and you can hear it.

The dawn chorus is voluminous.

France shuts early, so if you are going out do not leave it to late. The French love lunch and just about everything shuts between 12-2.When eating out it can be surprisingly expensive if you stray off the Plat du Jour ot Menu du Jour, but hey you are on holiday.

As a general rule the cheaper the red wine you buy the colder it needs to be served!

The weather can change quickly.

About Kevin and Janet Richardson

Retired from full time work some years back. With some friends we wanted a renovation project in France and the Chateau was an ideal challenge. We live there for a few months each year but also rent our apartment out. My friends and family have enjoyed many holidays at the Chateau and we hope you do as well.

Kevin and Janet Richardson purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Kevin and Janet Richardson chose Lot-et-Garonne

The location is stunning and the potential for what we wanted to do was tremendous and we enjoyed the renovation project. It really does offer just about everything you are looking for from a stay in rural France with so many places to visit and explore a wide choice of dining, wine tasting and buying and countryside exploring. We never tire of it and we are sure that during your stay you will not. We have never had negative feedback whether published on this site or given privately. The most common word used is STUNNING.

3 bedroom château apartment in Marmande area
average rating of 4.8 based on 5 reviews

Apartment was full of character, large rooms, well appointed facilities, with lovely outdoor space

  • 5 of 5

Easy to find location, facilities on offer were suitable for us as a family of four with plenty of space to spare, rooms were large, airy with lovely features. Bathroom & En-Suite were beautifully appointed along with a lovely kitchen/diner. The pool was excellent and we were lucky enough to use it most days with the weather mostly sunny and very warm. We had easy access to local supermarkets / food outlets within minutes of the apartment.

We found the local towns of Duras, Argen, Bergerac within easy commute, also catching the train from Marmande into Bourdeaux for the day was fun even with our limited French - nice to experience public transport being clean & on time. Bourdeaux was stunning especially the miroir d'eau which was a family favourite - the children spent ages walking through the water - welcome relief from the heat - combined with a lovely riverside promenade.

France was a relaxing change, local people were helpful, accommodating - well worth the visit.

Stephens Family - July / August 2016.

Owner's Response: The surrounding area is both beautiful and interesting and it is pleasing to see that you made the most of it. Everybody comments on the quality of the property and we do our best to maintain to a high standard although it is a challenge with such an old property. However the age makes it all the more interesting. The weather is normally pretty good in July and August and the pool does provide welcome relief from the heat at that time of year we are pleased you made plenty of use of the pool .

Fantastic holiday in beautiful Chateau Beaupuy

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely fabulous property in a splendid location! Has to be the best holiday home we have ever stayed in, highly recommended! Large beautifully decorated rooms, plenty of space, gorgeous gardens and pool, and lots of delightful wildlife. Everything very clean and well maintained. The owners were brilliant from start to finish, excellent customer service! Lots to do around the area including lively markets, medieval villages and castles, and Bordeaux itself is beautiful. Slightly further afield are the Cave Paintings in the Dordogne, and the Pyrenees are only a couple of hours away. Would highly recommend this property, and would definitely stay there again! You would be foolish not to book this!!!

Excellent holiday apartment

  • 5 of 5

A superb, comfortable, spacious and interesting apartment. We have rented many properties in France but this is one of the few we would love to return to! The building is old and is quirky in some ways but that adds to the charm. We would recommend it to anyone looking for somewhere slightly less touristy but where there is nevertheless plenty to see and do!

Beautiful chateau set in lovely gardens.

  • 4 of 5

Really beautiful chateau, apartment and grounds. Apartment spotlessly clean on arrival but pool is communal and not large which could be a problem if a big party is renting the other apartments. We were lucky to have the place to ourselves most of the time though. Appreciated having smart bathrooms with power showers, English TV, croquet set, and various board games that were there. The holiday was great for us and we had a lovely time and weather.

Owner's Response: I am pleased that everything was up to standard at the Chateau and you had a great holiday. Fortunately most people tend to explore the area rather than sit round the pool all day and the issue of overcrowding in the pool seldom occurs, but it is a good observation. I will request the other owners to ask people who use their places to respect other people's need to use the pool. Thanks for taking time to give the feedback, as always it is much appreciated.

Unreservedly fabulous

  • 5 of 5

Relax in traditional french chateaux, sensitively restored, stylishly and comfortably furnished. We enjoyed the well kept property, pool and grounds. Tempting to be lazy and just enjoy the setting ...

but, we visited Duras (chateaux with a twist - for children), St Emilion, La Reole, the 'Dune' at Arcachon, lunched in Bergerac, and had a painless trip to Bordeaux on the train. The cave on your doorstep sells very palatable red for a couple of euros a litre! And there's a huge Leclerc with an excellent fish counter just a short ride away outside Marmande.

Use the library to check-in before return.

Really ticks all the boxes - frankly don't let the lack of a dishwasher put you off - the accomodation ranks among the best we've stayed in.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased you enjoyed your holiday at the Chateau. We think the chateau is fantastic and we do our best to keep our place in tip top condition for people that stay there. It is so easy to curl up with a book and enjoy the chateau and not explore the area so it is tremendous that you did so much. We are really pleased that you took the time to leave the feedback and very much appreciate it. Many thanks.

Aquitaine coast
Car: necessary

This beautiful château is in the Lot and Garronne Department, in the region of Aquitaine, South West France. Overlooking the Garonne Valley and the small historic town of Marmande. Situated on the top of a hill about 2kms from Marmande and 15kms from Duras, the château itself has plenty of history attached to it and dates back to 1551. It is on the edge of the small village of Beaupuy.

Closest airports are Bordeaux (1hr) Bergerac (1hr) and Toulouse (1.5 hours). Between 6 and 8 hours drive from the western channel ports of St.Malo, Caen and Cherbourg.

The château has been divided into 3 apartments and our property is a 3 bedroomed apartment and sleeps 6, on the ground floor opening on to the extensive gardens overlooking the valley. There is also a shared swimming pool in the garden.

The château is the ideal base for exploring Aquitaine, sampling the extensive wine production or just generally chilling out with a glass of wine and a good book.

Golf: Marmande has a local 11 (18)hole Municipal course which is well kept and very well rated. CastelJaloux has a good 18 hole course with a well stocked club house. Vigieres, at St.Foy le Grande, has two well designed natural courses and very good club house, with an excellent restaraunt.

There are many other courses in the area.

Ski: The ski resorts of the south western Pyrennees are now less than two hours away following the opening on the new motorway to Pau. We are not suggesting that the château would be a good base for a skiing holiday. However for a day trip to play in the snow you can always give it a go. We understand there are also very good off peak short break ski packages in the south western Pyrenees if you search for them on the internet with basic but reasonably priced accommodation.
