Our party of 8 thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in this beautiful chateaux. The private pool was an added and well used attraction.

We will be back again for another holiday.

Fabulous Castle Chateau

  • 4 of 5

This is a great place to relax. So much space and so elegant. Steeped in history, it exudes charm.

The whole family enjoyed our stay. Great location for exploring the Dordogne.

But nothing is perfect. The pool could have been a little warmer and the wi-fi access is difficult.

Go and you will not be disappointed if you like historical buildings and charming owners for whom nothing is too much trouble.

Beautiful building, beautiful location and great villages nearby

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at the Chateau. It is very grand and the owners were so wonderful. We had Angelique come and cook us a gorgeous dinner in the Chateau one night as well and it was all local products, really delicious.

Thank you for a fabulous stay! We loved living like Counts and Countesses for a week! Henri's wine is fab too!

Sarah, Gareth, Pete, Vicki and our kids.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

A lovely place to stay that more than lived up to the pictures and the description. Nicely situated for all sorts of day trips to the interesting sites in the region and always a pleasure to return "home" at the end of the day and be able to prepare dinner in the immense kitchen and enjoy it either in the kitchen, the classic dining room or even outdoors in the shade of the castle overlooking the pool and the forested hillsides.

Isolated in it's private domain, it's an incredibly calm and relaxing place to be with well maintained rooms and grounds

The owners were extremely hospitable and available to us and have an excellent knowledge of the region and had excellent advice on places to go and things to see.

Highly recommended.

Wonderful place for family stay in Dordogne!

  • 5 of 5

Don't miss out on the opportunity to stay in your own 14th century chateau! Stepping into the chateau is like stepping back into time with spiral staircases, period furniture, old wood floors, and shuttered windows. Even so, the owners have done a tremendous job bringing the chateau into the 21st century, with some comfortable modern couches and chairs, appliances, bathrooms, satellite TV, and even WiFi. The rooms, including the kitchen, are clean and well appointed with everything you need for a pleasant stay. The in ground pool is large, clean, and has plenty of pool side chairs and lounges, along with some tubes for the kids to float on. The views of the surrounding fields and woodlands are astounding, and the owners are very friendly and inviting – they even had us over for aperitif. They will love to tell you about the area and the history of the chateau. We have traveled in Europe on a number of occasions, and this is one of the best vacation rentals we've ever stayed in. We highly recommend it!

A warm and welcoming stay in a beautiful chateaux

  • 5 of 5

We want to thank the hosts of the chateaux, because our stay was wonderful. We could easly fit more than 9 people in this chateaux. The ambiance of the chateaux was warm and welcoming and the pool was also a great feature. The only downside to our stay was the slow internet connection.
