Is a residence full of Charm and
History. The building is wonderfully exposed, surrounded by a splendid park of
lawns and welcoming shades. It opens on a beautiful and endless
follow the road from Cancon to Villeneuve, along the hight
plateaux,notice a little castle on your right; it is Roquegautier......
Admire first the marvellous site; it overlooks the faraway valleys down
to the Lot plain,lonely like a lost sentry watching the enemy
coming in the plain "
Quote from the 1880 Lucien MASSIP'S notice about the Roquegautier's Lords
|Six centuries of history The castle was probably built in the 15th century by Jehan de Boyssonade.
It belonged then
to the Saint Etienne de Monibal parish.. The Roquegautier Lordship
(Gautier's rock or Roque Gautier at differents times)remains in the
family until the beginning of the 17th century when the 'de Bourgoin"
family takes possession. Then the De Galaup family will own it.
it was built, the castle had nine towers. It was modified during the
18th century to keep only three towers and enlarge the outbuildings.By
the end of the 19th century, more changes are made. Doors and windows
are modified and an outside (elevated) galery is created along the front
of the castle. An octogonal tower is added.
The swimming pool
The Manor's pool is 20 x 40 foot
Protected from the sun by ancient trees, you'll be able
to have a rest in the park while looking at the magnificant view
on the lot valley and its hillsides.
The seasons offer their most beautiful fineries, the landscape colours changing by the day ......
