The Château de Mercuès has a total of 24 guest rooms and six suites, each of them has its own unique character and a different view and the two signature suites are "The Bishop-room" and the "Tower".

Built in the 13th century, the chateau was the summer residence of the Counts and Bishops of Cahors for seven centuries. The chateau has been in the family for years and staying in this magical 13th century château overlooking the Lot valley is a truly unique experience, steeped in the history of France during the Middle Ages.

There are immense staircases leading down to their magnificent wine cellar where you can take part in tastings of their own and local wines.

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.

There are various activities available and the hotel has an outdoor pool and facilities for mountain biking, various hiking trails, tennis (on site), and can organise horse riding, water skiing on the river, fishing and there is also a nearby flying club for the more adventurous.
