Amazing place for a large group of friends

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a Mautors for the Whitsun week. At our peak there were 30 of us in the property yet it still felt amzingly spacious. Below are a collection of comments from the group. We are all returning for the same week next year - Thanks Tom & Maggie!!!

A stunning venue set in beautiful grounds, amazing views and facilities to cater for any range of adults and children. The relaxed warmth and generosity of the owners made our stay even more enjoyable. A gem of a find for a perfect large group holiday- we will certainly be repeat visitors!

We're all paid up on booze which is an amazing price! What was the total number of bottles consumed in the end? Did we break the record?

Review: Mautors was an idyllic chateau for such a large group of people. The separate apartments meant you could have some privacy when needed and the entertainment areas worked fantastically well for both the kids and adults.

The constant supply of wine - thank you Tom- was brilliant and tasted great.

All aspects seem to have been thought out well and it meant we were able to really relax and enjoy a fantastic holiday in Mautors. We look forward to returning next year.

A truly amazing place to stay, the pictures just don't do it justice and the pictures are great, we had a large group of family and friends but never felt on top of on another, the outside and inside are brilliant, but it was the little things like constant hot water, cleaning products and more than ample kitchen cookware and utensils. Out of 5 I would give it a 6.

Fabulous family location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Mautors for a week in July 2015 with the whole family ranging from ages 18 months to 81 years of age and the chateau was perfect for all of us. In a very quiet secluded area but close to pretty villages and lots of things to do nearby. We enjoyed days go karting and canoeing both within short drive. Views from the raised terrace and from the pool are gorgeous and all the rooms were clean, spacious and comfortable. Large tv, games room which suited the little ones but we saw very little of it due to the fabulous weather which meant we spent most of our time outdoors. The owner Tom was always around when needed, very friendly and went out of his way to fix anything that we needed (above all he is an Ipswich Town supporter which went down very well with a family of Town supporters !)

We've already booked to return in 2016 ......

Activity and Interests


Biscarosse and Arcachon are both beautiful beaches and are two and a half hours away.


Mautors is 7 - 11 hours drive from the Channel ports St. Malo/Le Havre/ Cherbourg/Calais.

Flights into Bergerac include: Ryanair.com fly in from Bristol/Liverpool/London Stansted/East Midlands/Brussels-Charleroi.

Flybe fly in from Birmingham/Edinburgh/Exeter/Southampton/Leeds Bradford.

Transavia.com fly in from Amsterdam-Schiphol.

Flights from Bordeaux(transfer 1hr 30 mins), Toulouse (transfer 2hrs 30 mins). Carcasonne (transfer 3hrs) and Limoges (transfer 3hrs 30 mins).


Castillonnes is 7 kms away where there is a good supermarket, several bakers and butchers, and even a cinema, alternatively there is a larger supermarket at Miramont de Guyenne, 15 minutes away.

There are a wealth of Chateaux and caves to visit, wine tasting, canoeing on the Dordogne, horse riding in the village, Tennis at Castillonnes, and bastide towns to visit which each host a market on specific days of the week.

Further Details:

All the towns in the area have a market on different days which our guests love to potter around, or just watch the world go by with a glass of wine in their hand. For those who like a bit of fun in the evening, there is a night market during July and August in the town of Eymet, where you can buy local produce which is bar-b-qued in the streets, and you can sample some of the wines which are on offer by local producers at their own stalls.

If you are lucky, you might be holiday when the towns take it in turn to have their Bodegas, a night when you can roam around and sample food and wine, and listen to dozens of bands in the streets who play all sorts of music. The highlight for us are the drums that pound round the streets in the balmy heat of the evening, and with everyone joining in dancing.

We are very lucky to have a good choice of Restaurants close by, all of which are child friendly, and good value. Bergerac and Villeneuve Sur Lot are a bit further away, but are worth the trip to see the architecture of the towns, and to visit their restaurants, as well as the shops for the girls!
