Description from owner

The charming Chateau de la Cheine is a great value chateau rental. The Chateau sits within beautiful private grounds and has a large swimming pool. It is The ideal French getaway to enjoy with friends or family.

Located just 5 minutes from the lively market town of Bergerac, yet in a pretty countryside location, the Chateau de la Cheine is the ideal location for family holidays, celebrations and reunions for up to 20 guests. The welcoming elegant spacious rooms and extensive grounds provide room for rest and relaxation. The area is famed for wine tasting and within easy reach of all the famous 'Perigord' tourist attractions. The Chateau de la Cheine is in the local commune of Ginestet a predominantly wine and agricultural area.

The 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!

Bergerac

Situated just a few minutes from the historic market town of Bergerac in the Dordogne, the Chateau is in the local commune of Ginestet a predominantly wine and agricultural area. From here you may easily access the towns of Bordeaux (1.5 hours), St Emillion (1 hour), Sarlat (1 hour), Perigueux (30 mins), and Limoges (2 hours).
