Located on a working vineyard, Chateau de Falloye is perfect for wine lovers seeking a luxury holiday home in the Dordogne. A stay here includes a complimentary wine tasting and daily maid service. You'll enjoy a heated swimming pool near a covered stone terrace with room for dining and a fireplace. This 15th century chateau, whose 7 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms are carefully restored, sleeps 12 guests in spacious comfort.
On about 40 hectares of grounds, surrounded by vines, meadows and woodland, this home is the perfect spot for enjoying France's wildlife. The original fortified walls surround gardens and a private chapel, and you'll find table tennis, bicycles and petanque on site. The bedrooms feature antique furniture, some with four-poster beds, and many have modern en-suite bathrooms.
As you explore the pleasures of southwest France, visit weekly markets in the area, including two in Bergerac. Sampling other nearby wines is a must; you're surrounded by Bergerac wine appellation vineyards, but close enough to the Bordeaux area to compare varieties. Make sure to visit the River Dordogne, perhaps from the seat of a canoe.
