Further details indoors

Lovingly restored and decorated, the spacious interiors of the Château du Bourbet still retain the relaxed ambience you will find in any family home. Whether you prefer to curl up with a book in the Petit Salon, savour a digestif in front of the Drawing Room fire, dress to impress and sweep down the grand staircase (we've all done it!) or just enjoy a cup of tea at the kitchen table ~ the Château du Bourbet has a room to suit every mood.

Further details outdoors

Surrounded by unspoiled Dordogne countryside, sheltered courtyards give way to stunning vistas, miniature horses and rare sheep graze the paddocks and woods, an ancient Buddha surveys the 10 metre pool looking out over the lake... all in all, six beautiful hectares of peace and tranquility for you to relax and enjoy.

The Château du Bourbet is happy to consider rental enquiries for larger parties.

The Aquitaine/Dordogne region

The Dronne valley is a land of unspoiled countryside through which flows its namesake the Dronne, one of the most beautiful rivers of France. Rolling hills and vales give way in turn to limestone plateaux, ancient forests, peat-pools and lakes. This is rural France, perfect for walkers & ramblers, cyclists, artists and those wishing to explore the region by car.

Verteillac

Brantome, the ‘Venice of the Périgord’, is just 20 mins drive away, on the banks of the Dronne. A delightfully picturesque town with independent shops, superb restaurants and a wealth of riverside cafés. Guided boat trips run hourly during the summer months and Friday night sees the weekly ‘river joust’ ~ great fun to watch!

Over the border in the Charente is Aubeterre, famous for its monolithic underground church. The tree-lined town square is full of cafés and quirky shops, perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon. There is also a good 9-hole golf course nearby.

The Grand Etang at La Jemaye is a must for those with children : a sheltered lake (with lifeguard) on a lovely sandy beach surrounded by pine trees. This popular pôle loisirs also offers a playground, fishing area, restaurant, snack bar and graded fitness trails.

The historic cities of Périgueux and Angoûleme are both within 40 mins drive. Périgueux, the ‘capital’ of the Dordogne dominated by the magnificent Cathedrale de St Front, offers hidden delights within its winding, cobbled streets. Angoûleme is an ancient fortified town, and the world cartoon capital. In September the walled streets are closed for the Circuit des Remparts, the annual vintage car race. It offers some of the best shopping around, and is also the closest TGV link to Paris (approx 2h) and the Eurostar to London (approx 6h).
