An opportunity to experience the French “art de vivre” in comfort at 5-star Manoir les Gaillardoux, an authentic 18th century French manor house in the Quercy

Discover the secrets of historic Château de Cènevières

As narrated in his inimitable way by the “Marquis” Patrick de Braquilanges, whose family acquired the 13th and 16th century château in 1793. 

The private visit of his intriguing collection of historical gems will be followed by a friendly animated debate with the owner over chocolate, cakes, savouries and local wines around a cosy log fire in the ancient kitchens of the Chateau.

Will you dare?

Château de Cènevières has a collection of period clothes, which you will be offered the opportunity to don while at the Chateau, to enter into the spirit of periods past… and immortalise in photos and video!

History and Gastronomy

You will be able to continue this friendly debate later with the English speaking “Marquis”, during a convivial and gastronomic dinner at Manoir Les Gaillardoux – and imagine the context of some of the stories in a private coach tour of the local “Châteaux des Anglais”
