The Grounds

20 acres (7 hectares) - formal garden, lake, woods, open spaces

Set amongst the vines, woods and sunflowers of South Dordogne, the 7 hectare (20 acre) estate offers the perfect haven of peace and tranquillity.

Set back from the road by 150m or so, the front garden is extensive and is ideal for sports requiring space.

Immediately to the rear of the chateau is the croquet lawn – irrigated nightly to maintain well-manicured lush grass, lined with beautifully kept borders, and finally encircled with mature oaks. The large swimming pool is located conveniently, but discreetly, to the side – offering complete privacy and yet enjoy fabulous west-facing views – the perfect spot from which to enjoy our wonderful sunsets.

To the rear are private woods – left more “au naturel” but with kept tracks forging paths that will draw you into nature. A clearing in the middle offers a wonderfully shaded area for group yoga sessions, whilst glimpses over the lake can be enjoyed en-route.

The lake itself is stocked with carp – fishermen are welcome to try their luck – quieter guests may enjoy ducks, leaping fish, and might even spy the odd kingfisher.
