Villa overview

Nestled between the Vezere and Dordogne rivers, this is an incredible location for experiencing some of the most incredible sights of this region.

This 17th century chateau features typical Perigordian style with its towers, windows and shutters.
Framed by ancient trees and summer colour, this is like something out of a fairy tale.

The two wings and separate pigeonnier contain nine bedrooms, all of which have the historic ambience that is found throughout this property.
At the top of one of the towers you will find a grand master suite, with stunning panoramic views.
All the rooms are thoughtfully styled with antique furnishings and a homely ambience.

Children will love the cinema room with its DVDs and Netflix, as well as the twinkling ceiling lights.
Guests will enjoy relaxing in the indoor hot tub with the requestable bar service.
The swimming pool makes for ideal summer days, with lunch able to be enjoyed in the Pool house.

So many of the sights of Perigord Noir are close by, with the banks of the Dordogne just ten minutes away.

Set in over 60 acres of vast grounds featuring fields, forests and a small lake, Château des Lauzes enjoys an incredible location in the heart of the Périgord Noir, between the Vézère and Dordogne rivers. There are walking and mountain biking trails in the estate which lead to other paths in the neighbouring countryside.
Despite this rural location, you are near two villages, the nearest being 3.5km with a couple of good restaurants and a bakery.
The other village, 4km away, is set on the hillside above the Dordogne river. Explore the old town, dating back to the 12th century, wandering around the steep lanes and perhaps stopping off for a coffee in a charming café or a spot of lunch. This medieval village has an interesting history and there is lots of beautiful architecture to admire as well as amazing valley and river views from the top. There’s a lovely market on a Sunday morning which shouldn’t be missed. There are also supermarkets and shops in a commercial area around the village which are useful amenities to have so close, just a ten-minute drive away.
Within ten minutes you can also be on the banks of the Dordogne river, hiring canoes and kayaks or simply sitting by the riverside with a picnic of regional delights picked up from a local market. There are boat trips along the Dordogne river, departing from some of the idyllic riverside villages such as Beynac-et-Cazenac (14km) and La Roque-Gageac (19km).
The Vézère river is also a wonderful spot for canoeing with Le Bugue (12km) just fifteen minutes by car (visit on a Tuesday morning for market day!). Not to mention the amazing pre-historic attractions across the Vézère valley, many of which are UNESCO World Heritage sites. The village of Les Eyzies is only 8km away with its Musée National de Préhistoire.
There are also many fascinating caves in the area to explore - the most famous being pre-historic Lascaux, 30km away, with others even nearer such as the Gouffre de Proumeyssac (10km).
Not to mention the Dordogne's awe-inspiring châteaux, some of which are possible to visit such as Château de Beynac (16km) and Château des Milandes (14km) with its wonderful gardens. Garden lovers should also visit Les Jardins de Marqueyssac (17km) or the incredible Jardins du Manoir d'Eyrignac (33km).
Sarlat-la-Canéda (20km) is known for its beautiful architecture, excellent restaurants and wonderful markets. Some of the France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ are also nearby such as Domme (24km), Saint-Amand-de-Coly (37km) and Monpazier (35km).
