An elegant French chateau nestled in the peaceful countryside of the Lot-et-Garonne, just a short walk from the local village, Maison de Maitre is an idyllic choice for a group getaway.

Flanked by pointed turrets and approached via a gravel driveway, Maison de Maitre impresses from the outset. As befitting a property of this style, the interior is equally attractive, with exquisite reception rooms and beautiful sleeping quarters.

From the spacious entrance hall, climb the elegant staircase to the two floors of bedrooms. The chateau accommodates 18 guests across eight unique bedrooms, six of which are en-suite, with notable features such as a four-poster bed, exposed stone walls and arched castle windows. The eighth bedroom is perfect for children, with two sets of bunkbeds sleeping four little ones who’ll love their fairy-tale castle experience.

The en-suite bathrooms are beautifully appointed; four of them are housed within the turrets offering a unique and romantic bathing experience, some with rolltop baths, others with luxurious showers.
