Welcome to French Chateau Sculling, a unique Camp where scullers of any ability can improve with dedicated coaching while enjoying a fun-filled experience. You will row directly from the chateau and all coaching, boats, food and wine are included.
Our stretch of the River Lot is quite stunning. It has been selected by the Paris Olympics (2024) as the preparation area for rowing and kayaking.
Our stretch is also used by the Oxford University mens and womens squads for the selection camp ahead of the big race.
The French national rowing and kayaking squads also train here as well as multiple clubs from France and the UK.
The main reasons for this interest are; lack of current, wide and deep river, no large river traffic, virtually no wind and it’s just so beautiful!
