This spectacular château, decorated to an extremely high standard, is located between Gourdon and Sarlat. One cannot help but fall under the charm of the domain as soon as one crosses the dry moat. The domain is set on the edge of a picturesque and relatively unknown medieval village with easy access to all local amenities.

The Grounds:

The domain includes an iron entrance gate with renovated guest house (independent building but only rented with the chateau in the high season) and short driveway leading to the guard towers of the moat and through these into the inner courtyard. There is a sizeable garden flanking the driveway with a beautiful large pool (4 x 12) for you to enjoy the wonderful French summers. Once inside the inner courtyard there are a number of ancillary buildings including a small house and towers. One tower houses an exclusive romantic bedroom.

Château accommodation:

Cellar: 2 large rooms with original domed ceiling from the 17th century and under floor heating, which is at times used for weddings or receptions.

Ground Floor: Large reception room with triple aspect (west, south and east) and impressive fireplace. Beautiful living room with open fire and decorated with a very personal touch by an English Interior Designer, living in France. Large dining room also with fireplace, leading to the modern kitchen area.

1st Floor: 5 bedrooms each with en-suite glorious bathrooms. Bedroom number 5 (in the tower) has a 'spa' bathroom. Extra two bedrooms in the separate lovely cottage. 6 Bathrooms altogether.

The original medieval château was built circa 1440 and served as a defensive structure to protect the inhabitants against the British after the 100 Years War. The castle was modified during the 16th and 17th centuries and the current château dates to the early 20th century with cellars from the 17th century. Recently renovated to adjust to modern High Standards.

The owner does not accept children under the age of 6.

History:

According to local legend there are underground tunnels linking the domain to the châteaux of Gourdon, Rocanadel, Masclat and Fenelon. During the French revolution the vendor threw golden keels in the well to collect at a later date, he never came back and they remain unfound. The original castle was burnt down during the revolution in a protest over corn. The subsequent château has taken its place and offers a more open and welcoming feel. Perched on top of a cliff facing due south and west this château is unique not only in its positioning but also in its rich heritage.
