About the property

An 8 Bedroom , 6 Bathroom Home with Pool set In 22 Hectares of Forest & Fields

Approaching the Chateau down the long winding tree lined drive for the first time is like stepping into the past. The Chateau park itself is a magnificent, 22 hectares of fields, streams and some of the rarest trees in France.

There are 8 bedrooms and 5 1/2 bathrooms. Each room is luxuriously decorated and filled with antiques.

There is an enormous tapestry lined salon/drawing room with walk in fireplace, two libraries, dining room and vast fully equipped kitchen and pantry. The house has been restored to a very high standard and the rooms are both elegant and comfortable. This house is perfect for large groups, entertaining, weddings and special events.

There is a 16 metre long salt water pool, designed to blend in with the surroundings and a large lake, with kayaking, canoeing and fishing facilities, only one kilometre away.

Guests who enjoy cooking will be thrilled with the full vegetable, flower and herb gardens as well as the professional LaCanche stove for cooking. Also, guests may request that bread, pastries and pizza be prepared and made in our own ancient bakery oven located on the Chateau grounds. With so much comfort guests are generally reluctant to do the many things on offer around the Chateau, the sightseeing, canoeing, biking, fishing, hunting, swimming, tennis etc.

Given the size of the property there is a caretaker living in his cottage. Maidservice and catering can also be made available in the summer months.

The Chateau is also available for Weddings, Events, Seminars, Corporate or Wellness Retreats and other special events.

The Winter House, a beautifully refurbished 17th century farmhouse located on the grounds, may also be rented either separately or as an ensemble with the Chateau.

About Maria & Marc

Marc and his wife Maria have 3 children and now 2 grandchildren as well! They have lived all over the world but the Chateau is where the heart is .

Maria & Marc purchased this castle in 2000

Why Maria & Marc chose La Roche-Canillac

My Mother's family originates from this village and have lived there for at least 10 generations. My Great Grandfather, a mason and joiner from the village rebuilt the the roof of the Chateau around 1900. My Grandfather was the village blacksmith and my Grandmother was the owner of the largest hotel in the village. My father, was also a resident of the village during WW2. I also lived there and have visited many times throughout my life. I recall walking through it's grounds as a child and telling myself I would, one day, make it mine.

What makes this castle unique

The house sits on a hill overlooking the valley, fields and forests which surround it. I have always remarked at how the air and water seems so clean you can feel it almost immediately. My Grandfather used to tell me, it's too bad we can't bottle the air or we would be rich beyond our wildest dreams. And the stars! On the new moon you have never seen such a sight.

Peaceful Grandeur

  • 5 of 5

Chateau Beaufort is a stunning property with two long entrance driveways, and an immense stone home surrounded by 100 acres of grass, trees and grazing meadows. This home is ideal for groups of 8 to 20. The remodeled kitchen has everything you need to cater to a large group. The first floor bedrooms are spacious and well appointed and the baths are recently remodeled. The 4 bedrooms on the upper floor are less elegant and share one bath. The dining room seats 10 and the kitchen another 10. We did 1000 piece puzzles on one of the kitchen tables as it is such a gathering place. The living room is huge and seats 10 comfortably with a large screen TV and lots of books.

The pool is amazing with a salt water system and lots of lounges for sunbathing. The peace and quiet of the grounds allow you to hear the songbirds singing all day.

The owners (Marc and Marie) were most accomodating our needs early as we settled in and worked out some initial kinks. Their caretakers, Jon Michel and Isabel, were truly amazing and solved all our early issues with beds, plumbing and an older washing machine that was replaced. Jon Michel is also the town baker and a source of daily bread and the occasional pizza.

The grounds teem with flowers that we could cut and bring into the house. An organic garden was a source of lettuce, strawberries, and green beans.

We had 16 friends and 14 family members there at various times during our one month stay and everyone had a life changing experience. The owners are working on solving our one issue of excessive flies that the grazing sheep brought to the party.

Overall, this is an exceptional vacation experience for larger groups and get a five star rating from our family!! This is definitely a “low key” rural location with narrow curvy roads with some distances to travel for sights and activities. The town of La Roche-Canillac is quiet, but has the Boulangerie, Pharmacy and a sweet small grocery store with a great selection of fruits, veggies and general goods. Bob Voyage!!!

Lovely French getaway

  • 5 of 5

We recently had the wonderful opportunity to stay at Chateau Beaufort in La Roche Canillac, France.

We decided to stay in the main house, as we were visiting with our large family and a few friends from the US. Last summer my husband and I rented the smaller "Winter House" for a romantic getaway, so we were familiar with the area and the property, and couldn't wait to return.

The grounds are incredible, and you feel so secluded, perfect for a break from the chaos of the city! The caretaker, Ernest, is a kind man who was able to help us out with any small questions we had.

The interior of the Chateau is refined, but also very relaxing. There are loads of great spaces to spend time in- the kitchen table, (more than enough for our large family,) sitting room with ornate tapestries, a library, and a games room (perfect for young kids AND teenagers!), there is something for everyone. Little thoughtful extras like a high chair and plastic cutlery for babies were greatly appreciated as well. As it was winter, we were overjoyed to experience a roaring fire in the incredible fireplace in the sitting room.

I honestly cannot recommend this property enough for anyone looking to get away from it all and experience the Beautiful French countryside.

Stunning chateau in wonderful position surrounded by hills and lakes

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant2 week stay with teenage families in August. Fabulous home with exquisite furnishings and fully equipped. Ernest the caretaker was very attentive and helpful, and the owners were super responsive too. Surrounded by lakes which provided endless fun with diving boards and acres of swimming- often entirely alone! Plenty of fun at the bottom of the valley on the upper Dordogne- kayaking, standup paddleboarding, and for the adventurous , waterfall climbing with Arjen. Will definitely return! Picture perfect village of la Roche canillac- With the boulangerie in the Mairie and a well stocked epicerie- both a quick walk from the house, or even shorter bike! Pretty remote so don't expect vibrant nightlife or lots of nearby restaurants- you have to drive to find them. Lovely markets and pretty churches too. Massively recommend!

Simply perfect!

  • 5 of 5

As a venue for a holiday with the whole family, the Chateau de Beaufort is hard to beat. We were 14 persons in total, and we all were comfortably lodged in very nice rooms.

The house is very spacious and very cosy, we had the feeling of being in our very own maison thecampagne. Small problems were immediately taken care of by the very kind concierge couple Ernesto and Jacquie.

The surroundings, the perfect quiet, the cast garden, the magnificent swimming pool, the vicinity of the baker's shop, the perfectly equipped kitchen... it all added up to our total satisfaction.

We certainly recommend this place to our friends. And we are sure to come back the next time we want to spent a week together with our whole family.

wonderful and sumptuous Chateau -

  • 5 of 5

A palatial residence with wonderful, stylish interior furnishings as well as large grounds. The perfect place for a family gathering with a pool and games room for kids. The hosts were very helpful as were the couple who live next door and are on hand to help as caretakers. A very verdant area with lots of walks and opportunities for water sports. It is a hidden gem!!

The Chateau de Beaufort is at the centre of one of the most unspoilt and least populated regions in France. It is covered in endless deep river gorges and valleys, ancient forests, lakes, rivers, streams and waterfalls all flowing with the Topaz coloured waters of the Correze.

Stream, river and lake fishing, hunting, mountain biking, hiking, camping, orienteering, swimming, water skiing, tennis, sailing, wildlife viewing and motorcycle touring are just some of the activities which can be considered in 'Le Pays Vert' or 'The Green Country'. Waterfalls, densely forested valleys, medieval castles, ancient ruins and underground caverns are only some of the sights.
