Overview of Le Chai

What Oliver loves…

  • The pool at this holiday home in the Dordogne is expansive, with loads of space for games around it.
  • Because the grounds are fully walled, children can explore the gardens safely.
  • The owner, Christine (who lives in a neighbouring property), is an excellent chef, so catering is a MUST!

What you should know…

  • There’s a village within walking distance, but no boulangerie or shops. Stock up in nearby Bergerac (12 km).
  • The pool is 100 meters from the house, so pack up your towels, sun-cream and shades for the afternoon.

Enjoy the beauty of two gardens at Le Chai, a holiday rental house in the Dordogne. The large 19th century home sits within 7.5 acres of private grounds, including a picturesque landscaped garden for relaxation and another designed around a large swimming pool (15x7m), with a lawn for outdoor activities such as badminton, table tennis, cricket and a giant chessboard.

Inside, the house features high ceilings and beautiful hardwood floors. With 2 elegantly appointed living rooms and a dining room for 12 with a large window for fresh air, you’ll gather in comfort. The 6 bedrooms, some with exposed wooden beams, sleep 12, and there are 4 modernised bathrooms. With wireless broadband internet and cable TV with English and US channels, you can keep in touch with home.

The region is known for its Perigord cuisine—like truffles—and Bergerac appellation wines. Le Chai is a short drive from Monbazillac and Pecharmant vineyards, 2 of the most famous AOCs. The countryside is also dotted with fortified hilltop towns where you can explore the past, such as the medieval castle at Hautefort.

Close to the village of Mouleydier (7 km), Le Chai is only 10 minutes from the Bergerac airport.

Interior & Grounds

The interior decoration brings the finishing touches to the house comprising 6 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 2 living rooms and a dining room that can seat up to 12 persons.

The house is fully equipped with dishwasher, washing machine, wireless broadband internet and cable TV (with English and US channels), DVD players and stereo system. The rental includes a cleaner and cook if you want.

Map, Location & Local Information

Vineyards and fortified towns are the highlights of the “Périgord Pourpre”. The house sits in the heart of Monbazillac and Pécharmant – the two most famous vineyards among 13 other “AOCs” - just 10 minutes from the city of Bergerac.

The old town of Bergerac has kept its architectural heritage from the 14th, 15th and 16th centuries that can be seen in the half-timbered houses. It is the starting point to discover the vineyards and castles of the region.

Fortified towns such as Beaumont, Eymet, Issigeac, Lalinde, Molières and Monpazier, among others, testify to the history of the Périgord, especially the rivalry with England that started in the 12th century.

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.
