As bed-and-breakfasts go, it cuts a striking figure, with its towers and medieval tapestries and ancestral portraits, set among trees imported from around the world in the early 1800s, including American cedars and sequoias. The castle is filled with upholstered chairs, chandeliers, richly decorated wallpaper and fancy clocks. There was…

Overview of Chateau des Truffles

What Oliver loves…

  • A unique estate set in 184 acres for your exclusive use!
  • The river Manaurie runs through the grounds of this chateau in the Dordogne.
  • The sauna and fitness room helps guests stay active even in the cold of winter.
  • All bedrooms have en suite bathrooms with luxe Villeroy and Boch fixtures.
  • A wide range of outdoor and indoor games are available: boules, badminton, table tennis, croquet and a lot more!
  • The outdoor spaces with heated pool, flowers, gardens, terraces and a gorgeous fire pit are simply stunning!

What you should know…

  • The Estate Managers will be delighted to help you organise activities in the surrounding areas and to provide catering services.
  • The chateau and the barn are let exclusively to one group at the time.
  • This area is secluded and remote - do plan on renting a car.

You’ll want for nothing at this singular 17th century chateau in the Dordogne, where every room is elegantly appointed and every comfort provided. The on-site caretaker and concierge will greet you with a “Welcome Basket” of foods to keep you until the next afternoon, and every weekday a maid will come in to tidy. Your guests won’t have a care in the word, only curiosity about what treasures lie hidden within this 184 acre estate.

This holiday chateau includes 10 en-suite bedrooms split between the main house and a beautifully converted barn. The two spaces are united by a shared private pool, terrace with outdoor kitchen, and gardens (roses, herbs, and fruit trees). To thoroughly explore the tree-lined valley, a walking path will take you around the estate on a 1.5 hour tour.

The surrounding countryside begs to be explored - within 10 minutes of the chateau you’ll find excellent sporting opportunities: golf, horseback riding, canoeing, and tennis. Travel farther to Montignac (22 km) or Périgueux (30 km) for more bustling medieval towns with wonderful markets. To find the centre of the region's wine production, travel to Bergerac (44 km), where the hillsides beside the Dordogne river are an oenophile's delight.

Map, Location & Local Information

Chateau des Truffles is the perfect location for your holiday or rendezvous, whether you just want to get away from it all and become immersed in another part of hidden France, or you want to be busy discovering all that the Perigord region of the Dordogne can offer. It is known as the valley of 1000 chateaux with endless pretty medieval villages, fine wines, truffles, local markets and spectacular valleys and rivers. Both the Vezere and the Dorgogne rivers offer great kayaking, canoeing and unparalleled views of the countryside.

From the property there is spectacular walking (there is a 1.5 hour circuit through the estate) and much much more. Within 10 minutes of the property there are tennis courts, golf, horseriding and canoeing. Further afield there are interesting villages, gardens and local markets to visit. The local restaurants and auberges come highly recommended for lunches and dinners serving regional specialties as well as high-end dining. The house with its gardens offer a special place to take time out, relax and rejuvenate.

The Region

The pace of life in the Dordogne is languid, laid back and positively infectious. Relax in bucolic beauty as you drift along the Dordogne River, or wander among the forests and hillside of the Périgord Natural Park.

The foodie scene too, is a relaxed affair. Take your time over your lazy lunches of local duck, black truffles and goats cheese. If you’re feeling energetic, you can even hunt for them yourself. The wine here is second to none, with infamous grapes like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chenin Blanc all having a huge presence here.

The Dordogne is also brimming with history. Castles and chateaux are scattered throughout the region, among the enchanting medieval villages. History of an altogether more ancient sort can also be explored in the incredible prehistoric cave drawings of Lascaux and Grotte de Rouffignac.

Enjoy gourmet dining experiences with our new Chef Service!
We’re now offering our customers the chance to enjoy some unforgettable eats with our new Chef Service! Choose from booking a single sumptuous meal with a private chef for that special occasion, or hire a chef to cook your meals for all or part of your holiday - it’s as flexible as it is delicious.

A) Single Meal Service: A chef will travel to this villa and whip up a fantastic meal for you and your guests. The chef will arrive with all the necessary ingredients as well as the talent to turn them into something unforgettable. They’ll serve the meal and clear up afterwards - an easy and entertaining way to enjoy a top quality meal in your very own villa!

B) Full Chef Service: If you really want to kick back and relax, we can arrange for a chef to cater for the duration of your holiday (or part of it). With a range of options from simple family catering to full-on haute cuisine, we can organise a meal plan and a price to suit your needs. So why worry about self-catering when you can have everything taken care of?

Of course, before booking this service, we suggest you contact the property owner as they might already offer a similar cook or chef service in-house. To find out more simply visit www.oliverstravels.com/chefs.

Reviews for Chateau des Truffles

Chateau des Truffles Reviews


  • Paradise in Perigord

    Posted by Timothy C on 02/08/2016

    We enjoyed our week enormously. The property accommodates a large party (we needed all ten bedrooms) but retains elegance and intimacy. It feels like a grand family home and not a vast and faded pile. The interiors are in excellent condition. We had wonderful weather so spent most of our time outside, in the spacious and beautiful gardens. Jennifer, the property manager was very helpful and friendly. Overall, the Chateau des Truffles provides an Englishman's dream of a French country house.
