Château de Mercuès.

Hotel and restaurant in a vineyard. France,Mercuès

Unique in the world: Summer residence of the counts and bishops of cahors for seven centuries.

Hervé Philippon, Maître de Maison, presents the property:

Staying in this 13th century château overlooking the Lot valley is a truly unique experience, an authentic immersion in the history of France during the Middle Ages. Built on a rocky promontory, this was the summer residence of the Counts and Bishops of Cahors for seven centuries. Today, the chef draws his inspiration from local producers, and has won an international reputation for working wonders with black Lalbenque truffles and Quercy lamb. The wine list includes the great Malbec wines and vintages produced in the château’s very own wine cellars, because before being the owner, Mr. Vigouroux was the wine grower.
