Le Pavillon D’Or is a unique and wonderful apartment in a glorious Château, located in a small Dordogne village surrounded by vineyards.The village Château was originally built in the 16th Century yet in the mid-1800s it was unusually split into five apartments, each now owned by separate residents. Le Pavillon D’Or commands the right-wing of the Château and has been lovingly restored whilst retaining so much of its original character with four metre high ceilings, exposed beams and wood panelling in the elegant salon adorned with rich tapestries, rugs and stunning Baccarat crystal chandeliers. Doors lead through to the refined dining room with antique mirrors, which contrasting effortlessly with the modern kitchen; the ideal place to cook your candle-lit feast. Antique lace covers the tall French windows that open either side to the garden and courtyard, allowing sun to stream through your home.On the first floor you’ll find two romantic bedrooms, exquisitely furnished with antique pieces and high quality beds with pretty views of the village church or courtyard. Despite the strong sense of history throughout the apartment, you’ll find modern luxuries such as crisp linen and soft towels from The White Company, a Sage Nespresso machine, Wi-Fi and Satellite TV. Listen to the church bells as you sip local rosé from your private garden as the sun dapples through the trees or prepare delicacies from a local market. You can wander to a couple of local restaurants in the village and in the summer a pop-up pizzeria appears weekly. The friendly and discreet caretakers can also help you arrange any catering you may need in advance of your stay.Wine-lovers are in the perfect location with vineyards surrounding the village, some of which are bio-dynamic and offer tours and tastings. As well as the famous La Route des Vins de Bergerac so near, you also have the Bordeaux vineyards to the west with beautiful Saint-Émilion (45km) less than an hour away. The stunning Dordogne River is just 4km away where you can hire canoes down the river whilst golf lovers will appreciate the nearby Château des Vigiers with a 27-hole golf course and restaurants. You are surrounded by idyllic villages and towns, full of history and character, including two of France’s Plus Beaux Villages, Monflaquin and Monpazier, within an hour. Follow the Dordogne and visit some of the region’s most famous Châteaux and villages for some spectacular day trips such as Beynac-et-Cazenac, La Roque-Gageac and Domme.This magnificent historical apartment really is quite special and a wonderful base for exploring this fascinating part of southern France.
