Special two-for-one offer on a week’s holiday at the Château

Riding TrailDo you fancy getting away from all the hustle and bustle of 21st-century life – even just for a little while? Does a week’s holiday in a centuries-old Château the tranquil countryside of beautiful Lot in France sound like the perfect antidote to your hectic life right now?

Gentle rolling hills… Cornflower-blue sky as far as the eye can see… Picture-perfect villages… The sound of silence… It’s about as far from the never-ending roar of modern life as it’s possible to get while still being in the same century.

We’d like to think your answer is “Yes!” already – but we’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

1How about this: we’re offering a special two-for-one deal on seven-day full-board holidays at Chateau de Laumiere for the week beginning Saturday, June 14, 2014.

You can take advantage of everything we have to offer. If you’re a rider, a morning hack along one of the miles and miles of car-free “Chemins Rurale” 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.

You’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?

SNCF’s special offer

5We’re not the only ones running a special offer, either.

On Monday, May 20, French train operator SNCF launched a cut-price intercity ticket promotion that takes in the week of June 14 to 21. Tickets can be bought for travel until June 26. Just log on to SNCF’s website for more information. If you need, it has an English-language section, which you can find here.

So, if you need a break but you don’t fancy flying, then let the train, Château de Laumiere and our horses take away your strain – even if your budget is perhaps a little tighter than you would like it to be.
