Located in a beautiful part of the northern Dordogne, this spectacular château dates back to the 9th and 12th centuries. It's a true gem in a magnificent setting with beautiful extensive grounds including two boating lakes – boats provided!
The property boasts 35 hectares of magnificent land in very peaceful surroundings with five lakes which can be used for boating (two boats on two lakes provided), fishing (pontoon and boat provided) and swimming. The largest lake covers 3 hectares. There are wonderful views from the Château beyond its grounds towards forests and hills, and a pleasant terrace under a shady arbor by the swimming pool. Meals can be taken here or at a terrace at the back of the house.
The caretakers live on the property grounds beyond the gates of the château.
There are two entrances to the Château. One is at garden level which comprises the dining room and the kitchen. The other is at ground level next to the pool; a hallway with a stunning stone spiral staircase (children and elderly persons must take care) leads to a very large living room with beautiful stone floors, original beams and two fireplaces. On this floor there are also a sitting room, a library with comfortable seating and a shower room with a wc.
On the first floor are two double bedrooms (one with a 160 cm bed and one with a 140 cm bed), one with a single bed (80 cm) for a child, each with an en suite bathroom with a wc. On the second floor is the children's area with a twin bedroom (one bed is 110 cm bed and the other a 90 cm bed), a double bedroom (140 cm bed), a playroom on the landing with a single bed (80 cm), and a shower room with a wc.
