Manor / Castle

Chateau Lotoise


There is a large castle garden with a beautiful heated swimming pool where you can enjoy the whole season. You are really completely alone when you rent this beautiful castle: no owners on the spot but good managers who live 5 kilometers away.

Within
In the main house of Chateau Lotoise you will find a tastefully decorated salon with an impressive fireplace. From the dining room with fireplace you enter the modern kitchen. If you prefer to eat out, in the village of Milhac is recently one of the best restaurants in the region: Delicatessens. Here you can also order your food! The 1st floor contains 5 bedrooms each with a beautiful en-suite bathroom, one bedroom is in the tower of the castle, this is a very romantic bedroom with bath in the bedroom .... The cottage has a bedroom with a double bed and two additional bedrooms where each 2 persons can stay overnight (attention you can only reach these bedrooms via outside, so not very suitable for very small children). The cottage bedrooms are somewhat simple and more suitable for young adults.

Outside
The domain is located on the edge of a picturesque village where you can get fresh bread in the morning and enjoy a delicious meal. The original medieval castle was built around 1440 and served as a defensive structure to protect the inhabitants against the British after the 100 year war. The castle was adapted in the 16th and 17th century. The current castle dates from the beginning of the 20th century with cellars from the 17th century. Recently, the castle has been renovated and adapted to modern standards. According to local legend, there are underground tunnels between the domain and the castles of Gourdon, Rocamadour, Masclat and Fenelon. During the French Revolution, the salesman collected golden keels in a well to pick them up at a later date. He did not come back and the keels have never been found. The original castle was set on fire during the revolution in a protest over corn. It has since become an impressive fortress in the nice village of Milhac.

Special: 8 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, space, private heated pool, domestic help possible, not very suitable for children under 6 years, fireplace, internet, garden completely sheltered and fenced.

Surroundings
Distances: Sarlat-la-Caneda 20 KM Bergerac International Airport 90 KM Brive International Airport 63km. If you want to visit the spectacular new caves of Lascaux, this holiday home is a short drive away from these caves.

(08-2015) The Most Amazing Place Ever!”

We could not have been more please with a vacation rental. It is in a beautiful little town where you will be hard pressed to see one other car a day. There is a great restaurant about 250 feet away, and not much else in the town. If you are looking to relax and venture out for day trips, book this place immediately. It was perfectly quiet. No noise, no people, no issues at all. It is by far my favorite place so far. We did so much using this as our base, from outdoor markets in sarlat, to canoeing down the river, to hiking, to visiting the monkey sanctuary, to a cave tour! You will not be disappointed. The beds are all nice. You do have to climb stairs or ladders to reach them BUT its worth it, no doubt. We had a party of 16 people and everyone was happy. The guard tower apartment was an added bonus. Small bedrooms but still amazing! The views are beyond description. The estate sits above the valley and its beyond beautiful. The grounds were all well kept and the pool was perfect! I am hoping it is available the next time we visit because I cannot imagine staying anywhere else. It was that good. The people in the area were all sweet and didn't make us tourists feel bad at all. Everyone was welcoming. Just driving around in the surrounding area is a great way to spend a day.


(08-2015) Morning Lydia,

The week was brilliant and the wedding truly magical. I will send some photos to you when I have some. We did get the water back in time thank goodness!! Please do pass on our thanks to pascal for allowing us to use his beautiful chateau for our wedding. All of our friends loved it there and all want to return! We are now in beaulieu-sur-doredogne about an hour away from Milhac staying at chateau D'arnac. Thank you for your kind offer - I'm guessing we may be a lttle out if the area now!Many thanks again for all you and your team's help.You have been fab!

Thank you for the email.First let me say we had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed staying at Chateau Milhac.Theonly feedback we have is to suggest to the owner that they lay some kind of pathway (maybe just gravel) from the gatehouse doors to patio outside the house door.  We found that even with no rain (just dew in the morning) the walk was generally muddy which meant we had to continually clean up mud from shoes and the house floor.Once again thanks for everything

(7-2014) Hi Lydia,

Thanks. Definitely we had a wonderful time. I will have some great photos and will send them on when I get organised.
Overall, I want to say it was a FANTASTIC experience, the location is simply magnificent, the house, the space, the gardens etc. All absolutely amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would definitely recommend.

(8-2013) Hi Lydia,

Just to let you know that we had a fantastic holiday at Chateau Milhac. The pictures don’t do the Chateau or the views justice it is simply a beautiful and tranquil setting, yet an easy drive to the river and tourist attractions such as Sarlat.
Imogen our 4 year old daughter learnt to swim in the pool and by the end of the holiday was doing a length all by herself ?, and my son Rory spent most evenings
entertaining us playing the piano.We met Pascal and his lovely family and enjoyed a great evening and dinner with them.
We had a superb time and we all miss it already ?, so these are not criticisms only suggestions that may make life even easier for guests next year when they stay at this incredible place.
Thank you for all your help in arranging the booking for us.

Best regards Nathan

(8-2013) Hi,

A great place to stay for a family exploring Perigord-Noir. The chateau setting is majestic while the house is completely modern. The chateau sets the framework for a visit to Perigord-Noir: in the country overlooking valley farmland from a cliff, which means looking down and over thick fog in the morning. The house is mostly new and has four comfortable, private bedrooms with adj oining baths, powerful air
conditioning, a well-equipped luxury kitchen, and so on. The guest cottage is simpler but totally charming. The audience for such a special place will be a self-selecting group. For experienced France travelers who can get by in French, this chateau setting is awesome, as is Perigord-Noir. Because Perigord-Noir is more off-the-beaten-track for anglo-saxon tourists, prices of everything seemed to be about half of those in other regions. There were a lot of tourists, but they were
mainly French and some Dutch families, with children of all ages. There's a lot to do within a concentric circle of less than an hour, but some level of energy and sense of adventure are required. Sarlat was our default for dinner or free time exploration. Lastly, our free advice to Perigord-Noir explorers is to check out the historical fiction books of Robert Merle (starting with Fortune de France, which is being translated into English for next summer) and the mysteries of Martin Walker, either before coming or while staying at this marvelous chateau house.

(6-2013) Lydia,

Photos did not do justice to the Chateau. It was superb! Everything about it was first rate. Everyone in our party of thirteen loved it. We could have stayed at the Chateau the entire time every day and done no sightseeing!
We've had no experience with French chefs but we thought Julien was outstanding.
Thank you.

(6-2013) Hi,

Thisplace could not be more beautiful or unique. I was among 10 friends from San Diego who stayed here for a week. We each had to pinch ourselves regularly to believe we were actually staying in such a magical place. We all admired the skill and thought that went into updating it and making it so comfortable. We had a few problems with appliances, but we contacted the local manager and received prompt attention. The town of Milhac is tiny and charming and a wonderful place
to walk. The one restaurant in town, O' Chemin de Lune, is excellent although only open for dinner. The town is a great home location to take day trips from. It was a dream vacation. There are a few things I would point out though that make this not a place I'd recommend for people who have trouble with stairs. Three of the 5 bedrooms in the main house have narrow and steep stairs between their private bathroom and the sleeping area. It's a bit of a challenge in the middle of the night.
Staying in the cottage and tower rooms would be like living in a fairytale, but they are also up very steep and narrow stairs, and the two tower bedroom occupants must walk on a narrow cat walk and pass through the main bedroom to use the bathroom. This would be super for a family, but not so good for some adults. Altogether we could not have had a better time.

Beste Lydia, 
Wat een geweldige locatie! Een week lang hebben wij met twee gezinnen ons als kasteelheren en –dames de koning te rijk gevoeld. Prachtige vertrekken, mooie slaapkamers met heerlijke bedden en badkamers, een fantastische kelder, kortom iedereen van jong tot oud heeft het geweldig gehad! Het zwemwater was wat fris maar tijdens de twee mooiste dagen in deze meiweek  hebben we heerlijk gezwommen. De uitzichten zijn fenomenaal en als het s’avonds wat kouder was, hebben we ons gezellig teruggetrokken in de salon. De kinderen hebben lekker kunnen voetballen in de slotgracht en hebben zich uitstekend vermaakt. Af en toe een uitstapje naar een leuke plaats in de omgeving gaf wat afwisseling, maar toch wilde iedereen weer snel terug naar het Chateau. Kortom een topweek waar we nog lang van zullen nagenieten! 
Geert
