Chateau de Cenevieres, Cenevieres

#3 of 18 in Historic Sites in Lot
Castle Tourist Spot
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.

  • Very friendly welcome. We had the impression to be expected and recognized. In the company of a young tour guide, great-grandson. Some small approximations but no hard feelings, so the history of the Castle and the family is interesting. Very beautiful pieces, a nice view of the Lot. Thank you for opening your Castle. We are out pleasantly surprised. Worth a visit without pb. Accessible to all.

  • Night tour to do absolutely! The Castle, his furniture, his plays are full of life and the atmosphere isn't that more enjoyable. Our visit was conducted by Ludivine, playful, passionate guide, who will show the Castle and its little secrets. Thanks to all the team for this great moment. PS remember to book!

  • 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.
  • Nice visit! The castle is superb, well preserved, in a quiet place, it is part of the too few buildings open to the public in the region (many thanks to the owners), and the young guides are very friendly and competent. A real pleasure, and a visit I will recommend for sure!
