Maison de Poitiers is situated on the corner of a medieval square in the 12th century Bastide village of Castillonnes, in the Lot et Garonne. The Lot et Garonne area is famous for its food, wine, history and its unspoilt beautiful countryside.

The building started life as a hotel for horse traders in the late 18th century but for the last 40 years or so it has been used as a private family home.

In 1961 the building was featured in the French movie “Tout L'or Du Monde” (All the gold in the world) starring Rene Clair and Bourvil.

It is named after Alphonse de Poitiers who founded Castillonnes in 1259. Alphonse de Poitiers was King Louis IX’s brother and carried the title “Count of Toulouse”, he built some 40 Bastides, mainly to ward off the English.
