La Manufacture Royale de Lectoure

A former royal leather tannery dating from 1754, and classified as an 18th century historical monument, La Manufacture Royale de Lectoure is an ideal place to spend an atypical weekend. This tannery, built by the architect Pierre Racine, was abandoned for 30 years before undergoing three years of renovation to make it an exceptional place. Within this magnificent monument, you will find spacious and elegant rooms, as well as warm reception rooms, all of which have been renovated using natural and traditional materials. A swimming pool will also await you during the summer of 2023!

This place will be the perfect environment to find inner peace and disconnect from the non-essential. In addition, the breakfast is likely to delight your stomach...
