TAKE A TOUR AND SEE FOR YOURSELF

True chateau luxury

Lartigolle is a beautifully renovated 18th century estate set in the stunning Gascon landscape of south west France. The chateau has twelve luxurious, individually designed bedrooms – all decorated to the highest standard, with wonderfully comfortable beds and great bathrooms. The salons offer perfect entertaining spaces with a fabulous eclectic mix of modern and antique furniture and decoration. Lartigolle has a luxury hotel feel without the restrictions of a classic hotel environment and our passion is to ensure that all of your guests experience a truly memorable stay.

Totally dedicated to making memorable events

We are not an hotel we are a dedicated setting for private, bespoke events. This sole focus allows us to constantly improve our service, environment and facilities. As a consequence, the ultimate experience of our guests is always improving. The feedback we get from our customers, and our current 100% record of five star reviews on Trip Advisor, is a tribute to this.

A tailored planning service

What makes Lartigolle stand out from most other venues is that we have developed our own planning and catering teams and can provide everything you need to make your event as perfect as you have dreamt it could be. We have spent 13 years perfecting a planning process and developing relations with the best suppliers in the region. You really do not have to do anything, once you have chosen us, we will take over and do everything for you.
