For more than 800 years the Chateau de Beduer has stood guard over the Célé valley in the department of the Lot in South-west France. This exclusive private chateau offers an ideal location for family holidays, weddings and special events sleeping up to 19 in the chateau itself and up to a further 25 in three separate holiday houses, each with its own private pool and a panoramic view of the Célé valley. The chateau, set within its private gardens and park, is one of the most romantic and historically important in the ancient region of Quercy, playing its part in history from the time of the Crusades until the present day. In the 20th century it became the scene of intrigue and of one of the greatest love stories of modern times. The Lot is one of the few remaining unspoilt regions of France, with vast areas of primeval oak forest, tranquil river valleys, historical sites and hill-top villages. The delightful medieval town of Figeac is only 10 minutes away, with its traditional open markets and well-preserved architecture. Béduer is just two hours north of Toulouse and under six hours from Paris.

“Béduer, I salute you from afar, feudal memories.” Paul Valéry
