Outside the terrace juts out dramatically over the Dordogne, the setting is perfect for outdoor dining and cocktails. The pool side of the chateau is walled for total privacy.

The Aquitaine / Dordogne / Dordogne region
The Dordogne region is one of the most popular holiday destinations in France with many attractions on offer. Although the Dordogne has no coastline for 'bucket and spade' holidays, there are wonderful rivers for canoeing and swimming, as well as sandy river beaches.
The scenery is dramatic and interspersed with pretty towns and villages, both in the hinterland and along the Dordogne/Vezère rivers, plus innumerable châteaux, caves, museums, picnic spots and viewpoints. The four main areas are: Périgord Pourpre, in the southwest, named after its vineyards; the Périgord Vert to the north; the Périgord Noir, centred on Sarlat, named after its dense forest; and finally the Périgord Blanc that covers the limestone countryside around Périgueux.
For those who enjoy sampling different foods this is an area renowned for truffles, walnuts, duck, goose and foie gras - the markets are overflowing with local produce and at every corner you will see signs offering opportunities to sample and buy local products.
For wine buffs, the areas around Bergerac and Bordeaux are the places to head for with vineyards stretching in all directions as far as the eye can see.
Bergerac, the capital of the Périgord Poupre, lies on the riverbank in the wide plain of the Dordogne. The vieille ville (old town) is a calm and pleasant area to wander through, with drinking fountains on the street corners and numerous late medieval houses.
Sarlat-la-Canéda, the capital of the Périgord Noir, lies in a hollow between the hills 10km back from the Dordogne river. The best way to explore this medieval town is to wander through the cool, shady lanes and courtyards – cour des Fontaines and cour des Chanoines – around the back of the cathedral. Wonderful old houses can be found in the streets to the North before Sarlat's labyrinthine lanes lead you back to the central place de la Liberté, where the large Saturday market spreads its stands of geese, flowers, foie gras, truffles, walnuts and mushrooms.
There are more prehistoric painted caves around Les Eyzies than you could possibly hope to visit in one day! 26km up the Vézère valley you will also find the town of Montignac that acts as the main base for visiting the Lascaux caves.
Canoeing is hugely popular in the Dordogne, especially during the summer months when the Vézère and Dordogne rivers are shallow and slow-flowing – ideal for beginners. There are rental outlets at just about every twist in both rivers – a half-day (or longer) is recommended to give you enough time to simply cruise downstream and soak up the atmosphere!
The Lalinde area
The chateau's location is ideally suited to make it your base for exploring the surrounding regions. Within easy reach are the 18 historic Bastide towns of the Aquitaine, the Dordogne Valley, thousand chateaux, a rich choice of some of the most renowned troglodyte cave dwellings and of course, a feast of the best food and wine that France has to offer. The notably foods include the finest foie gras, truffles, walnut products, duck and goats cheese. Regional cuisine is readily available from venues that range from the delightful farm restaurants (Ferme Auberge) through to the most sophisticated Michelin starred establishments, where the food is accompanied by the best wines from Bergerac and Bordeaux.
A local survey recently highlighted marked differences in the approach between members of different nationalities visiting the Dordogne. The British are apparently noted for their fondness for golf. The Germans head for churches and abbeys. Italians, who come principally in August, enjoy château life and the local cuisine. Spaniards, on the other hand, are visitors throughout the year, and immediately seek out the Vesunna museum in Périgueux, whose architect Jean Nouvel is a well-known French figure in Spain. Dutch and Belgians resume their native cycling habits and get on their bicycles to explore the countryside.
However, when one looks at the location of Chateau De Linde, you would realise that such generalised surveys are useless, as everyone loves it here! You would have a hard time to find a spot more suitable as a base from where to do all these activities!
When it comes to golf, the courses in this area abound. Within a radius of about 50 kilometres, there are at least 30 plus golf courses to choose from.
If you are interested in Churches and Abbeys you cannot find better than in this area, we are right in the heart of route of the route of the Santiago de Compostela Pilgrimage.
Cyclists and hikers alike love this area as it not only offers interesting and varied routes through some of the most beautiful scenery, but a wide choice of villages and hamlets where they are welcomed and treated warmly and generously. This is also the most beautiful and interesting centre from where to take guided horse riding tours to Cathare castles, bastide towns, along the Dordogne Valley and through some of the most breathtaking an historic forests of France. You can go canoeing on the river, go on hot air balloon rides, fly in a vintage aircraft, do a course in French or painting or paper making, and, as for lovers of history and the romance of the past and archeology, it can safely be said that nowhere in the world is there such a variety of historic, prehistoric and archaeological sites.
