Who we are
The Lac de Castelgaillard Holiday Resort will be the first champion holiday resort site in France belonging to The Peter Bull Consortium. Peter Bull already has a number of holiday resorts in and around Europe and the company is at the forefront for innovation, design and management of holiday resorts. Peter Bull has worked in the holiday industry for over 35 years and understands the demands for families now who wish to holiday in such beautiful settings. Due to the stresses and pressures of everyday working life, we believe that families of all ages, now truly want to spend valuable time together as a family. Whether that is time spent riding bicycles around beautiful parkland; watching theatre shows as dusk falls; sitting together on your terrace overlooking the stunning lake or dining as a family in the one of the Lake’s eateries, it’s all about making the most of your family time.
The Lot-et-Garonne, South West France is the perfect location for such holiday resorts due to its wonderful climate, accessibility to airports and motorway links and the closeness to charming villages and amazing cities. The beauty of The Lac de Castelgaillard is that there will be so much to do within the resort itself, but on its doorstep is all the best that France has to offer with its food; its wine; its people; its charm and its history.

Nestled within the beautiful French countryside, where vineyards and meadows encapsulate rivers and forests, there, you will soon find an enchanting holiday retreat…. Le Lac de Castelgaillard Holiday Resort in Saint Sernin de Duras.
Set within the Lot-et-Garonne and covering an area of over 51 hectares of woodland and meadows, the central point of our planned holiday resort is the stunning lake that covers an area of over four hectares.
Peaceful and tranquil, imagine waking up within this holiday resort, in the comfort of your own beautiful home, with views of the lake and the sounds of birds and wildlife in the distance.
Le Lac de Castelgaillard and its surrounding forests lay dormant for many, many years, overgrown and untouched. But now it is being transformed into the majestic place that it once was by Peter Bull Resorts, France.
Our aim is to construct 400 wonderful holiday homes and other major attractions, including swimming pools, an amphitheatre, a beach area, snack bars and restaurant and other great facilities at the site. We are working with all local departments to obtain planning permission and it is deemed that permission will be granted by summer of 2017.
Over the last year, Peter Bull has worked closely with the Mayor of Saint Sernin and department councillors and so far has gained the full support of many officials within the council. The Tourism Office of the Lot et Garonne are extremely keen to see the fruition of this project due to the beneficial effects it will have on the local economy and much needed increase of leisure facilities within the area.
During 2016 we have been able to clear and open up many areas and carry out much-needed work to the dam and buildings in readiness for starting to carry out modernisation to buildings and construction work in 2017 which will allow us to open in 2018.
The Lac de Castelgaillard will be the envy of other holiday resorts within France and the rest of Europe, due to the excellent resort’s facilities and idyllic location. The option to invest in your own holiday home is superior to most and that’s why we believe it will be extremely popular with national and International holiday makers and International property investors alike.
We want our resort to encapsulate a tranquil holiday environment with:
- • Gentle walkways for pedestrians and cyclists alike throughout the parkland
- • A stunning Olympic size swimming pool and baby toddler pool complete with spas and Jacuzzis
- • A children’s play area with the latest play equipment
- • Watersports on the lake ranging from canoeing, pedaloes, kayaking and waterboarding and giant water orbs
- • Fishing: we have some very large fish and are working to improve fishing by introducing a re-feeding programme to encourage growth and health of the fish. We understand that the fish still in the lake are Catfish, Pike and Standon. The lake has not been fished for many years, so all species have grown exceptionally large.
- • An Amphitheatre that will host plays, spectaculars, bands and artists from all over Europe
- • An outstanding restaurant situated with views of the lake open throughout the year offering breakfast/dinner/evening meals
- • A snack bar where drinks and light snacks can be purchased servicing pool and beach areas
- • Nearly 200 meters of sandy beach situated right on the lake for family relaxation where sun loungers will be available
- • Crazy Golf area, petanque field, jumping pillows and more
- • Sales and enquiries office with a shop for essential items
- • Pets are welcome and owners too but they must be kept on a lead and owners must clean up after their pets
- • Secure parking for owners
- • Areas made available for Camping
- • Art Classes given by local artists
- • French Classes
- • Area dedicated to Yoga and Meditation
- • Local artisan producers invited on a weekly basis to promote their goods
- • Local vignerons invited to give talks on wine and wine tasting
- • Secure owner area with gated entrance
