Why the Perigord region?

The Perigord region has long been a magnet for visitors and you can see why: a timeless landscape, exceptional food & wine, bustling markets, beautiful villages and towns both along the Dordogne river and elsewhere - Périgueux itself, often overlooked, is stunning - not to mention its ancient history. It is a haven for walkers (there are several trails from the chateau itself), and cyclists will love the quiet lanes passing through sleepy villages. Or try the nearby lakeside beach (Neufont) and go paddle-boarding, or kayaking on the Dordogne itself to take in the region's beauty from the river.


Tastefully & thoughtfully renovated 17th century chateau, the epitome of elegance and character

Entering the long-tree-lined driveway through meadows up to the chateau you know you have arrived somewhere special. At the end the chateau sits proudly surrounded by 35 acres of private estate, the perfect place to unwind and recharge in space & privacy.

Inside, the accommodation is over two floors and 450 square metres, comprising:

Ground floor:

  • Salon with fireplace and seating for 6
  • Dining room with dining table seating 8
  • French billiard room

The house is set well back from a minor road in the western Périgord; it is about a mile to the local village Pont-Saint-Mamet, with its well-stocked grocery store. Within a short drive there are several good restaurants, and markets can be found somewhere not far away most days - we provide a guide at the house. Bergerac, Périgueux, and the Dordogne river are just 30 minutes away by car, and the region's historic sites and famous villages not much further.
