A brief history...

Once upon a time, in 1228 ...
Cardaillac William, Bishop of Cahors paid tribute to Saint Louis for forty cities, villages and castles that make up his area, Sauzet is one of them.

The Guiscard were the first vassals of the bishops in 1270.
After the Hundred Years War ends, the inhabitants of the neighboring countries arre caled upon to repopulate the province of Quercy, battered and deserted by more than a century of conflict.

A family of Rouergue, the Gautier de Savignac, will buy the lordship of Sauzet, and perhaps one of them who erected the lair. The village will know lootings and abuses during the holy wars. During all the seventeenth century the castle was besieged many times.

After many adventures and many other owners: Hugues de Moncoutié, Antoine Des Plats musketeer of the King, a villager named Cournou... some of its ancient walls have now become the "Auberge de la Tour" held by Nicole & Erwin, wishing you a very pleasant stay...


Quercy has kept much of it's architectural history.
It's in the old tower of the Château de Sauzet, dating from the XIIIth century, that the VIGNAL-POL family founded L'AUBERGE DE LA TOUR in 1934.

The hotel and the restaurant were completely restored in 2010. Great care was taken to preserve the character of the original construction.

Today, you can have lunch in a warm and very picturesque restaurant dining room. To get to the rooms one has to take the tower staircase…

You can now discover our new rooms, renovated with air conditionning and a newsuite with a separate bedroom and a bathroom.

A salon has been added for our guests.
