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. The on-site caretaker and concierge will greet you 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 bedrooms with private bathrooms split between the main house and a beautifully converted barn. The two spaces are united by a shared private pool, a wisteria covered pergola and gardens (roses, herbs, and fruit trees). To thoroughly explore the tree-lined valley, there are some wonderful walks from the chateau.
The surrounding countryside begs to be explored - within 10 minutes of the chateau you'll find excellent sporting opportunities: golf, canoeing, go-karts 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.
Good news! For a little extra, this property is available as a Vill'otelYey! Wait… what is that?
It's the perfect combo of the privacy of your own personal villa, with all the luxury and convenience of a hotel. What's included?
Breakfast, cleaning, welcome drinks and hamper, plus more! Check the Extras tab for all the details.

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.
From the property there is spectacular walking and much much more. Within 10 minutes of the property there are tennis courts, golf, paint-balling, go-karts and canoeing. Further afield there are interesting villages, gardens and local markets to visit. Don't forget the vast number of UNESCO listed sites of prehistoric interest within the valleys of the Dordogne and Vezere rivers. Cro-Magnon, for example, was discovered at Les Eyzies de Tayac just 11 km away.
The local restaurants and auberges come highly recommended for lunches and dinners serving regional specialties as well as high-end dining. The house with its gardens offer a special place to take time out, relax and rejuvenate.
