Photos and Description of this 8 bedroom holiday home in Yucca Valley - Chateau Perigord
House/villa, 8 Bedrooms 8 Baths (Sleeps 16)
Château Perigord sits grandly on a hill overlooking the farmlands, forests, and century-old nut trees below. This beautiful castle is located in the Dordogne area of France and is nearby the famous Château de Hautefort in the Périgord Noir. Built upon ruins dating back to the 15th century, the chateau has been completely renovated and updated in 2011. The owners took great care in maintaining the integrity of the chateau, highlighting its authentic elements such as century-old oak wooden floors, chimneys with majestic mirrors, fine handcrafted moulures and woodwork. At the same time, no effort was spared to seamlessly integrate all modern comforts such as large bedrooms with elegant en-suite bathrooms, a media room with flatscreen Satellite TV and DVD/CD player, a state-of-the-art gourmet kitchen, and Wi-Fi.
A day in Château Perigord might begin with breakfast on the terrace overlooking the scenic valley, where soft breezes mingle with the heady scent of the local flora. A hot, summer day might find you reading in your hammock, enjoying the fully fenced park with rare, century-old trees. The swimming pool offers a well-deserved break from the heat. In the evening you can enjoy the culinary gems of this region (such as truffles, duck, foie gras, mushrooms, and fine wine), purchased in one of the many charming local markets. Suffice to say, if you are in search of a special luxurious holiday rental for your family or a group of friends, then Chateau Perigord is a must-see! Weddings are welcome as are company retreats or conferences.
The ground level harbors the petite and grande living rooms, the cozy "fumerie" or reading lounge, the impressive dining room with spectacular views on the terrace and surroundings, the media room (with flatscreen Satellite TV, DVD/CD player and Internet connection), and gourmet kitchen, equipped with a state-of-the-art industrial island.
On the first floor are six double bedrooms, each with en-suite bathrooms and views out over the property and countryside. Some have walk-in dressing rooms and two offer fireplaces. On the second floor are the two charming, double tower rooms, each with en-suite bathroom and fantastic centuries-old wooden beams.
