Chateau de Cenevieres, Cenevieres

4.5
Climb the steps to the terraces of Chateau de Cenevieres for picturesque views of the river valley and lush countryside. Go inside to view traces of the original fresco representing the kidnapping of Helen and the burning of Troy. As you approach from the road, the chateau has an interesting profile. Instead of looking like a single building, it appears as a village filled with houses, châteaux, storefronts, perhaps a basilica. As you move closer, you realize why: This 13th-century castle was significantly altered from the 14th to 16th centuries. Builders replaced the Gothic openings with large Renaissance windows and pierced the medieval defensive walls with dormers.

  • Beautiful and nice visit... great view! Rewarding visit and pleasantly narrated by Virginia, our enthusiastic guide and Patrick, the owner of the premises who dived us with delight in the exciting history of his family. We will be back!

  • We visited the castle the week of March 6, 2018. Virginia (the guide) made us live this visit in a very fun way, my 9 year old was thrilled daughter. Exciting explanation of life in a castle! I highly recommend especially if you have children it is great!

  • Magificent Chateau. We enjoyed our visit and Patrick was the perfect host.We shall return soon.
  • I lead photography tours to wonderful parts of the world and our recent trip to France was one of the best I've ever done. Our entire photo group was treated to a private tour of Chateau de Cenevieres and allowed the special privilege of photographing; we were even taken into the attic of the castle! Our host, Monsieur Patrick, was wonderfully knowledgeable and gracious, and shared many details and historic accounts with us. The structure is a wonder and the views afforded from this vantage point high on the cliffs, is spectacular! Our time at Chateau de Cenevieres was a highlight of our 10 days in the Lot Region of France.
  • We had a fantastic personalized tour of the Chateau by Patrick, himself. We were the only tourists with English as our language and Patrick took us under his wing. He promised us dinner at our next visit! we just have to book the flight from Australia and bring a nice wine from our home region!!
  • We had a delightful tour with Patrick (one of the members of the family) today. It was informative historically and architecturally - with some good humor as well! I would definitely recommend a visit.
  • I discovered this castle during the heritage days, completely coincidentally, excellent surprise! This is the great father of the family that opened the doors of this beautiful place. 97ans, crushing it, waving his cane in every way to show us the landscape or an element of the castle to illustrate his humorous speech. This is one of his daughters who did us the tour itself, one then discovers a lounge, kitchen, a room, a chapel and other rooms full of objects, almost exciting all accompanied by their history. We learn also about the mysteries unresolved as the Alchemy room building, the location of the grave of an ancestor, the discovery of a still partly clogged underground... In short, an exciting tour conducted by the great owners of this beautiful castle! I hope to return in a few years to learn even more and maybe see some questions to find an answer.
