CHÂTEAU DE MERCUÈS, Lot Val­ley

France - - Where To Stay -

Oc­cu­py­ing a fairy-tale set­ting on a rocky promon­tory above the River Lot near Ca­hors, this 13th-cen­tury château just begs for wed­ding pho­tog­ra­phy. The gar­dens are a com­bi­na­tion of groomed and wooded park­land, af­ford­ing spec­tac­u­lar views, while a swim­ming pool, ter­race and ten­nis court com­plete the ul­ti­mate out­door re­lax­ation pack­age. The Re­lais & Châteaux prop­erty of­fers a fine-din­ing restau­rant, which has just won its first Miche­lin star, and a win­ery. The wed­ding pro­grammes pay huge at­ten­tion to de­tail, such as ini­tial consultation vis­its and ad­vance menu tast­ings. The château has 30 bed­rooms, but can ac­com­mo­date up to 100 guests for din­ner. The château is avail­able for ex­clu­sive rent at €6,000 for one night from 3pm to noon the fol­low­ing day Apr, Oct, Nov (€9,000 May, June, Sept; €14,000 July, Aug). Ca­ter­ing pack­ages and drinks pack­ages are avail­able at ex­tra cost. Tel: (Fr) 5 65 20 00 01 chateaude­mer­cues.com
