Inspirock Rating:
4.5/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web
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.

  • A very beautiful castle with interesting architecture but also and above all a magnificent ceiling painted, beautiful murals and a set of tapestries. The choice of development of the scene is very interesting with interesting furniture and, if you have the chance to be welcomed by the owner is the icing on the cake. A real pleasure to see the attention of owners to their homes.

  • Very nice and above all a very personal historical tour, a way to revisit the story in connection with the family of the owners of the Castle. Beautiful afternoon.

  • 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.
  • Worth a visit if you like the old stones and you pass in the corner. The visit is carried out by the family of the owners and anecdotes vary from one visit to the other. Very interesting.
