In addition, there is a 3 bedroomed cottage on the other side of the courtyard which is never let separately but can be rented at an additional cost for larger groups and wedding parties.
What the Chateau lacks in en-suite facilities, it makes up with true French charm and grandeur. The turrets and towers are truly spectacular and the setting is out of this world!It is an ideal holiday home for families and groups in search of tranquillity and privacy. Yet it is only a 10 minute drive to the village of Riberac with shops, bars, restaurants and the all important French morning market. Throughout the summer, there are banquets, festivals and events taking place throughout the season.

The long driveway set through the trees and then over the bridge into the formal front gardens gives an idea of the grandeur to come.

There is also a large lake which is a short drive away for the keen fishermen.

The Aquitaine / Dordogne / Dordogne region
Located in the South West corner of France, Aquitaine has got it all.
Part of the English Empire in the Middle Ages, its treasures were fought over for centuries – leaving a rich legacy of architecture, history and culture. It continues to be envied – enjoying a wonderful climate of four very different seasons, outstanding natural beauty, superb gastronomy and great wines.
The Riberac area
The Chateau is set on the edge of the small hamlet and just 10 minutes drive into the bustling villages of St Aulaye and Riberac. The Friday morning market in Riberac is reputedly “the biggest market in the Perigord”. Throughout the week there are daily morning markets in the area full of local fresh produce such as Saturday mornings in Saint Aulaye and Sunday mornings in Aubeterre.
There is an abundance of fantastic restaurants to suit all budgets and tastes if you would rather eat out and the local specialities of Foie Gras, Duck, the many cheeses, local prunes and the fantastic local wine are all easily found.
For the more active, there are plenty of sporting activities all close by such as horseriding, cycling, fishing walking. The large swimming lake with its own beach at La Jemaye is under a 10 minute drive from the Chateau.
There is canoeing at Aubeterre, Roche-Chalais and Brantome which is called “the Venice of Perigord” and well worth a visit. There is a 9 hole Golf Course at Manoir de Longeveau which is about a 20 minutes drive away.
