​Chateau du Pic, Najac

​La France Profonde

Welcome - Luxury Chateau to rent

The Chateau du Pic de Rigaud is a beautiful late 19th Century house on a hilltop (altitude approximately 1400") on the edge of the village of Najac in the department of Aveyron in rural south-west France.  It has the most wonderful views of the village of Najac and its commanding castle, and although you can walk through the grounds to collect your croissant in under ten minutes, the location is completely private and cannot be overlooked.  The air in Aveyron is reputedly the cleanest in all of France and, whilst summer is hot, the climate very bearable.  We have experienced late October days in the low 30 degrees celsius and, at this altitude, it does snow occasionally in January and February.  For those looking for winter sports, the ski resorts of the Pyrenees are around 3-4 hours drive away.

Set in 10 acres (4 hectares) of secluded garden and woodland, the house has been recently renovated and equipped to a very high standard with a private 14 metre saltwater swimming pool set in its own secret garden.

The house sleeps 9-10 in comfort and is an ideal location for a relaxing, sunny family holiday or as a base for activities throughout south-west France.  It is available for rental throughout the year.
