47110 Le Temple-Sur-Lot, Aquitaine, France




Steeped in history and designed with ultimate luxury in mind, Château Bouffereille is tucked away in the stunning countryside of south-west France, nestled among Aquitaine’s working vineyards and medieval “bastide” towns.

Lovingly and sympathetically restored in a classic style, the chateau combines traditional elegance with modern convenience. It’s a place you can completely switch off. And though you may feel like you’re in the middle of nowhere, you’re close to local amenities and everything you need for the perfect break.

Château manager Laura lives in a cottage on the grounds (but you won’t know she’s there!). She can offer a private chef service, housekeeping, babysitting, advice about the local area and much more. Laura really will go the extra mile to make your stay unforgettable – and her food is simply exquisite!

SINCE 1836

Built during the second half of the 1800s, we believe the Château as we know it today was redesigned and extended – with the addition of its grand turrets – in the late nineteenth century.

Le Temple-Sur-Lot, which extends on the left bank of the river, was named after the Templars who settled here in the late 13th century. They built a Commanderie to collect the tolls on the river Lot and along the road valley which has existed since the Roman occupation.

After the banning of the order and the ravages of the hundred year war, the Knights Hospitaller returned, rebuilt the village and redistributed land to ‘immigrants’ from the Massif Central.

The Commanderie building was expanded to incorporate a defensive aspect during the religious wars and the complex is now set over 3200m2.

After the Revolution the Commanderie became a private property. It now belongs to the town and tours are organised.


Located in South-West France just a 1 hour 30 minute drive from Bordeaux lies a place where you can completely switch off. Immerse yourself in the nature of its surroundings whilst also being close to local amenities and everything you need for the perfect break.
