House | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
The Honeymoon Gatehouse was constructed in the 15th Century on the site of an earlier castle and sits within the grounds of the owners private chateau. It is built of golden stone flanked by four towers; a tributary of the Dordogne River flows through the chateau grounds. The Romanesque town of Beaulieu-sur-Dordogne is just 6km away.
The region is known for its wonderful oak, chestnut and walnut woods, foie gras, strawberries, walnuts, cepes, truffles & wine. The gatehouse is ideal for nature lovers and, as its name suggests, is perfect for honeymooning couples as the 'Brides' bedroom features a romantic four poster bed. This French holiday home comfortably sleeps 4 adults in its 2 double bedrooms.
