Overview of Chateau De La Cheine

What Oliver loves…

  • Relax in the eclectic mix of traditional and modern furnishings.
  • Perfect for groups of family and friends alike with its pool table, swimming pool and spacious parkland.
  • The kids can roam free in the acres of private grounds and woodland. Bring out their inner explorers!
  • With only 5 minutes to Bergerac, the property is in prime position for wine tasting, great restaurants and direct flights from the UK.
  • Large light, spacious rooms on the ground floor
  • Only an hour and a half from the world famous Bordeaux means day trips can be easily arranged

What you should know…

  • Although heating is charged at extra cost during Christmas & New Year, a large decorated Christmas tree is provided and you will be  welcome with complimentary champagne and nibbles!
  • The beautiful swimming pool is located in a discrete location away from the main house, therefore children need to be supervised at all times
  • The three bedrooms on the top floor all share one bathroom, perhaps the best place to put all the kids together!

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. Bergerac offers direct flights to and from the U.K as well as boasting exquisite local cuisine and world famous vineyards.

The Chateau sits within beautiful private grounds and has a large swimming pool. The picturesque surrounding woodland is a haven for adventuring children who can also be occupied by the excellent games room.  The welcoming elegant spacious rooms and extensive grounds provide room for rest and relaxation. The area is famed for its archaic historical sites and is 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.

Chateau De La Cheine Reviews


  • What can we say!

    Posted by Steven on 19/09/2017

    We had such a wonderful time at the Chateau. It was a perfect location for our group of 17 friends! The location was wonderful and we had plenty of room for dinners, games and relaxation! The owners, Karen and Clive, were absolutely wonderful. They donated a wild boar for one of our dinners and even helped with our silly group photo! The open space and quiet surroundings of the chateau is perfect for any group or family wanting to get away from it all. The chateau is in good repair and the multiple bathrooms were a must for our group. We would HIGHLY recommend this chateau! Thank you.

  • Remarkable Holiday Home & Area

    Posted by Georgie on 07/09/2017

    We enjoyed a very happy family fortnight at this property. There was plenty of space for our party of 17, including grandparents and three families of children ranging from 3 years to 12. It was lovely that with only two days exception we ate every meal outside at the large shaded table. There was no risk of boredom, as not only the pool was well used but also the ping pong table and other assorted games were put to good use. Bergerac is a charming town with shops, markets twice a week and a good LeClerc supermarket. There are lots of activities and places to see all within easy reach of the chateau. Karen, our landlady, was very helpful with providing information and fun suggestions for the children. We particularly enjoyed half a day’s kayaking down the Dordogne.

  • Great for a Family

    Posted by Georgie on 02/09/2017

    This is a brilliant base for an all age family party. Lovely grounds and swimming pool and an area full of interest and play for all.

  • Highly Recommended

    Posted by Mark on 01/09/2017

    We had a wonderfully relaxing week. There was Five families, all of which have young children. The house is beautiful and everything we could have wanted. So basically, we didn’t leave! We spent most of our time round the excellent pool and sitting outside the BBQ area. Karen & Clive live nearby and could not have been more helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. I can highly recommend a visit.

  • Great week near bergerac

    Posted by Michael G on 26/07/2016

    Our party of 17 had a fab week at chateau de la cheine nr bergerac in

    July 2016. Host Karen treated us really well, the chateau is beautifully located and the facilities were great.

    The villa is only 7km from Bergerac but you feel as though you are in rural France. We had bbq, dined alfresco and had table tennis competitions. There were also lazy afternoons by the pool!

    I would recommend a stay at this great villa you will have a fabulous holiday like we did

  • Amazing, Welcoming and Comfortable Chateau!

    Posted by Duncan on 28/10/2014

    We had a fabulous stay at Chateau de la Cheine. The house and garden provided flexible, comfortable space for our group of 12 adults and 9 kids. The swimming pool was lovely, clean and cool, the garden had plenty of space to dine, to sunbath and to play, all the bedrooms were comfortable, and the kitchen well equipped. There's lots to do near to the Chateau, and it's a great place to stay. We hope to be back.

  • The chateau was the perfect choice for us

    Posted by Sylvia on 22/08/2014

    We had a fantastic holiday at the beautiful Chateau de la Cheine. The chateau was the perfect choice for us. My two sisters and I have 10 children between us, well they are no longer children they are now aged between 18 and 28 and some have regular partners so we wanted lots of bedrooms-the chateau has ten- and a pool and of course wifi, plus its near a town with a great market –Bergerac, not to mention an airport just 15 minutes away with low cost flights. On a per head basis the Chateau was very affordable, less than £200 per person per week.

  • I could not recommend the Chateau more highly

    Posted by Martin on 20/08/2014

    When we left Les Sarrazies a couple of weeks ago I promised that I would write an email about our experiences. As you know we had a wonderful week. For our family this was a particularly special week - it being my parents Golden Wedding. In many ways that increases the expectations that everyone has of the place we are staying and how the week will go. The Chateau was an exceptionally good place to spend a week as an extended family. There was enough space for all of us despite our very varied ages. The pool was a delight, and it was far enough from the house that the youngest children were easy to keep under observation. The gardens were big enough for games of manhunt and the table tennis table added to the afternoon games. Eating outside in a space where we were comfortable as a group of 21 is a tough expectation, but it was perfectly met. We had one particularly wonderful evening when we celebrated my parents wedding anniversary. The rooms were all lovely. The all exuded delightful french charm with lovely views. There was plenty of space. Again, having a games room inside was a pleasure - one the children of all ages enjoyed. We know the area around Bergerac fairly well, but even so, it was great to spend time in this most lovely part of France. Overall, we were very well looked after in what was a perfect place for our family celebrations. I could not recommend the Chateau more highly.
