Chateau overview - owner's description
You'll want for nothing at this singular 17th century chateau in the Dordogne, where every room is elegantly appointed and every comfort provided.
You'll want for nothing at this singular 17th century chateau in the Dordogne, where every room is elegantly appointed and every comfort provided. The on-site caretaker and concierge will greet you with a “Welcome Basket” of foods to keep you until the next afternoon, and every weekday a maid will come in to tidy. Your guests won't have a care in the word, only curiosity about what treasures lie hidden within this 184 acre estate.
This holiday chateau includes 10 en-suite bedrooms split between the main house and a beautifully converted barn. The two spaces are united by a shared private pool, terrace with outdoor kitchen, and gardens (roses, herbs, and fruit trees). To thoroughly explore the tree-lined valley, a walking path will take you around the estate on a 1.5 hour tour.
The surrounding countryside begs to be explored - within 10 minutes of the chateau you'll find excellent sporting opportunities: golf, horseback riding, canoeing, and tennis. Travel farther to Montignac (22 km) or Perigueux (30 km) for more bustling medieval towns with wonderful markets. To find the centre of the region's wine production, travel to Bergerac (44 km), where the hillsides beside the Dordogne river are an oenophile's delight.
The Main House - sleeps 10
Ground floor: fully equipped kitchen, breakfast room, utility and laundry, a sitting room with bar, bathroom with shower and sauna and a twin en-suite bedroom.
First floor: 4 en-suite double bedrooms and an en-suite twin room, 1 separate lavatory, a hall, dining room and drawing room.
Second floor: 2 double bathrooms with baths and showers.
Outside is a pretty stone kitchen terrace next to a lovely herb garden. Formal lawns and a rose garden with a gravel path lead to a wooden bridge over the river Manaurie, which runs through the centre of the gardens. A pergola draped in wisteria covers the barbecue area with table and chairs for outside dining. This area also has the fire pit surrounded by brick banquettes ideal for after dinner relaxing. A large heated swimming pool (8mx15m) with safety cover, a terrace with loungers and a pool house is set discreetly between the Barn and the Main House.
The Barn - sleeps 8
Ground floor: 1 twin bedroom with dressing room, ensuite bathroom with bath and shower. A huge open plan kitchen/living/dining space.
First floor: master bedroom with 2 ensuite showers, 1 double with ensuite shower and a twin room with ensuite shower room. There is also an extensive mezzanine area with a large and comfortable reading and relaxing area.
Outside space at the Barn is a small breakfast terrace and spacious formal gardens with fruit trees, rose garden, fruit and vegetable gardens and lawns overlooking the lake.
Linen and towels are provided for both houses and they both have cosy woodburning stoves for the cooler evenings.
Chateau des Truffles is the perfect location for your holiday or rendezvous, whether you just want to get away from it all and become immersed in another part of hidden France, or you want to be busy discovering all that the Perigord region of the Dordogne can offer. It is known as the valley of 1000 chateaux with endless pretty medieval villages, fine wines, truffles, local markets and spectacular valleys and rivers. Both the Vezere and the Dorgogne rivers offer great kayaking, canoeing and unparalleled views of the countryside.
