Do you fancy getting away from all the hustle and bustle of 21st-century life – even just for a little while? Does a weekâ€™s holiday in a centuries-old ChĂ˘teau the tranquil countryside of beautiful Lot in France sound like the perfect antidote to your hectic life right now?
Gentle rolling hillsâ€¦ Cornflower-blue sky as far as the eye can seeâ€¦ Picture-perfect villagesâ€¦ The sound of silenceâ€¦ Itâ€™s about as far from the never-ending roar of modern life as itâ€™s possible to get while still being in the same century.
Weâ€™d like to think your answer is â€śYes!â€ť already – but weâ€™re biased, as we know what a wonderful, peaceful, relaxing place Lot is. But maybe we can make it sound even more tempting?
Our special offer
You can take advantage of everything we have to offer. If youâ€™re a rider, a morning hack along one of the miles and miles of car-free â€śChemins Ruraleâ€ť that Lot has to offer is guaranteed to help even the most tense of people unwind.
And food always tastes better when someone else has cooked it.
Youâ€™ll be able to enjoy our fine home-cooked meals, all lovingly prepared by Lynda, who uses locally sourced ingredients wherever possible.
Forget food miles. During the summer, you can measure the distance our vegetables and salad have travelled in feet. Literally. They come all the way from our own garden. Please remember to tell us if you have any special dietary requirements when you book.
And you can relax Tuesday afternoon away with a massage courtesy of our qualified masseuse Nadia.
Wednesday is a non-riding day. Why not explore somewhere a little further afield? Or just take the day as it comes, watching the world pass gently and peacefully and calmly by at the side of our outdoor pool?
