All about Chateaux
Updated: Sep 20, 2018
There has been a lot of debate in regards to the meaning of the word “Chateau”. The word itself is a French word that entered into the English language. The word is mostly used on things related to France or French. Some say this French word is a reference to buildings such as a medieval fortress, a Renaissance palace, 19th century country house, large French country house or even a castle which is often giving its name to wine which has been made in the area. As some have translated this word into castle, others have pointed that it could be misleading and the debate still carries on…
France has a lot of history and stunning locations which include many castles and palaces. These days it is possible for anyone to experience living history by renting out a French chateau as many of these reserves offer accommodation, such as Immaculate Chateau.
From the north to the south, east to west of France, there are so many chateaux. For instance, just two hours south west of Paris, you can find over 300 chateaux. They include vast landscapes of vineyards, criss-crossed with rivers and some beautiful villages.
In the Aquitaine region (south west of France) sits the village of Temple sur Lot, that is situated in Lot-et-Garonne. Le Temple-sur-Lot is 517 km from Paris. The village was named after the Templars, who settled near the River Lot in the late thirteenth century. You will find Immaculate Chateau in this region.
Immaculate Chateau was built during the 1800s and we believe that the chateau as we know it today was redesigned and extended, with the addition of its grand turrets, in the late nineteenth century. This property appears in an early form on the cadastre of 1836. This luxury French chateau combines traditional architecture with state of the art facilities. Its historic settings are perfect for a modern holiday, which is fit for a family or a group getaway.
