Set in stunning countryside in the area that set the stage for the Hundred Years War, blessed with a fabulous climate and where a touch of international sophistication is the icing on the cake to the best of traditional rural France, there is something for everyone in the beautiful Dordogne.
You will enjoy the fabulous cafes and restaurants replete with gastronomic delights, history loves are spoilt for choice amongst the medieval bastides towns and chateaux, and photographers and artists will wonder at the beauty at every turn.
Whether on foot, two wheels or four, head out and enjoy the charm and diversity of the countryside – from vineyards to sunflowers, from woods to meadows – all criss-crossed by charming streams and rivers.
Children are equally spoilt for choice – take fun-filled canoeing trip down the Dordogne, head to go-karting in Bergerac, toddlers have two soft play centres to choose from. Or take to the trees in an aerial assault course of climbs, zip wires and ropes bridges.
At the chateau we also have badminton, table tennis, large trampoline, boules and bicycles.
