General Description

The elegant and imposing mid-16th Century Chateau is situated in 40 acres of private grounds and boasts excellent views over the Isle River valley. Six lavishly decorated bedrooms and six bathrooms are available for exclusive hire. A swimming pool is available for private use; it is fitted with a child security alarm. The Chateau features stunning interior decoration, including mosaics, detailed plasterwork, parquets, stone-flagged floors, and high ceilings with magnificent exposed oak beams. Many of the rooms are covered in wood paneling, while an enormous 17th century fireplace forms the centrepiece of the dining room. Beupoil family wallpaper still hangs in the living room. The Chateau is located on a hilltop village between the two towns of ‘La Roche’ and ‘Gravelle’, and overlooks the river Isle and the woods of Antoniac. The architecture of other buildings in the village bear a remarkable similarity to the chateau; this is because the family who once owned the chateau also owned the village and rewarded the local farmers with housing and food in return for their labours in the fields.

Hi, Just writing to say what a brilliant time we had in your chateau last week. Thank you for being excellent hosts and preparing such lovely meals for us. None of us wanted to leave, as you could probably tell, and we will always have fond memories of our holiday - maybe we'll visit again sometime.

You may not have seen the last of us!

I wanted to be sure and send you both a heart felt thank you from me, my family and my friends. You helped to make our already fabulous vacation even more wonderful every day that we were at the Chateau. We are all home safely now and we have such incredible memories of France thanks in part to you both. I want to personally thank you, Jose, for the time and attention you gave to Lily with the horses and to Alex with the Internet. I really appreciate all the time you spent on those things! We are all telling the great ghost stories of the Chateau and are passing along information about our stay. We all would like to return, you may not have seen the last of us!

Local activities include golf (5 minutes away), tennis (2 minutes away), canoeing/kayaking (10 minutes away) and wine tasting in Saint Emilion, Bergerac, Pomerol and Monbazillac (all within 45 minutes). Brantome is a delightful little town which has earned the moniker ‘The Venice of the Dordogne’ due to its location on an island. See the oldest bell tower in France at the Carolingian abbey, take a canoe or boat ride on the river, browse the windows of the many shops or sample the local cuisine. Bergerac is a riverside town with medieval houses that line the streets of the centre, virtually unchanged for centuries, and over a hundred vineyards cater to wine enthusiasts of varying tastes. For those who enjoy a sweet wine, Monbazillac is a pretty good bet. Sarlat is another medieval town with well preserved streets and a good market. The river is an essential part of the landscape of the Dordogne, and runs straight through the southern part of the region, taking in many scenic towns along the way.
