Hotel Chateau Mercuès

Hotel Chateau Mercuès. Unique in the world: summer residence of the Counts and Bishops of Cahors for seven centuries Hervé Philippon, Maître de Maison, presents the property: Staying in this 13th century château overlooking the Lot valley is a truly unique experience, an authentic immersion in the history of France during the Middle Ages. For this was the summer residence of the Counts and Bishops of Cahors for seven centuries. 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.It was bought by Professor Jean-Louis Faure in 1914; at his death in 1944, his two daughters decided to make Mercuès into a comfortable and welcoming hotel. In fact it was Georges Hereil, the father of the Caravelle, who really gave the Château de Mercuès its new destiny when he acquired it in 1966. He undertook vast building work including the huge swimming pool at the bottom of the park and the lift, discreetly concealed in the XIIIth century edifice. After his death in 1980, the Ch√¢teau was closed and gradually sank into oblivion.
