Perched on a hill in the heart of the Périgord Pourpre, perfectly located between Bergerac and Périgueux, this beautiful château awaits, entirely dedicated to food, wine and the pleasure of the five senses!

If paradise exists in the Dordogne, it most likely looks like Château De Neveu. Set in incredible unspoiled nature, nestled within a 30-hectare private estate of meadows and woodland, this 18th century residence is a nature lovers dream and a true haven of peace, seclusion and serenity. Relax by the gorgeous swimming pool with stunning views across the hills, dine al-fresco beneath the wisteria-clad pergola and come across numerous cycling paths and walking trails in and around the grounds. Look out for owls, deer and local birds as you appreciate the château’s wonderful surroundings.

Château De Neveu welcomes families and friends in total privacy, sleeping up to 14 guests across its seven pretty bedrooms, most with a view of the valley or woods. This elegant and refined home has been lovingly restored to preserve its authenticity yet renovations over recent years have brought it into the 21st century. Guests can expect fine antiques, classical furnishings and a wealth of original features such as exposed beams, original stone walls, the impressive spiral staircase, huge stone carved fireplaces and antique stone flooring.

This is such a fantastic setting for experiencing the very best of the Dordogne from charming villages and bastide towns to glorious vineyards and of course historic chateaux. Explore the landscapes on horseback, hire canoes or kayaks along the Dordogne or enjoy river cruises from Creysse, just 19km away.

Soak up the ambience at picturesque markets showcasing the very best of the Périgord, including those of Bergerac and Périgueux, both fine towns to visit for their architecture, charm and gastronomic reputation. Find yet more amazing cuisine and exquisite character in Sarlat-la-Canéda or venture west to the UNESCO World Heritage vineyards of Saint-Émilion, both just over an hour away by car.

 
Good news! For a little extra, this property can be booked as a Vill’otel

Yey! Wait… what is that?
It’s the perfect combo of the privacy of your own personal villa, with all the luxury and convenience of a hotel.

In the glorious Dordogne department, almost equidistant to the historic towns of Bergerac and Périgueux, Château De Neveu enjoys a beautiful rural setting. If arriving by plane, Bergerac Airport is around 25km by car whilst Bordeaux and Brive-Souillac Airport are both within a 90-minute drive.

There are many wonderful walking and cycling trails beyond the château’s vast grounds and tennis fans note there is a public tennis court a short drive away. It goes without saying that you will find seasonal canoeing and kayaking opportunities along the Dordogne River and also by parts of the Vézère near Le Bugue (35km). There is horse-riding within a 20-minute drive and golf-lovers have a choice of courses from the 9-hole Golf Du Château Les Merles (18km) to Golf Vigiers (48km) and Golf de la Forge (51km).

Discover wine-tasting in the Bergerac and Pécharmant vineyards or venture towards the great wine city of Bordeaux (124km) and the idyllic hilltop village of Saint-Émilion (86km), home to UNESCO World Heritage classified vineyards.

Of course, history-lovers will adore the many grand châteaux across the Périgord whilst bastide towns, small charming villages and beautiful cities also await. Start off in Bergerac (22km) with its picturesque setting by the Dordogne River, atmospheric markets and historic architecture whilst Périgueux (33km), the capital of the Périgord Noir, will also impress you with its charm, history and gastronomic delights. If you can find the time, venture to the exquisitely preserved medieval Sarlat-la-Canéda (63km), one of France’s most popular destinations and known for its fine cuisine.

Characterful hamlets and villages within a short drive include Clermont de Beauregard, Saint Georges de Montclard and Issac. Slightly further afield, Dordogne gems include Trémolat (26km), home to a Michelin starred restaurant, and Limeuil (33km) where the Dordogne and Vézère converge. If you are hoping to visit the famous villages of Domme and La Roque-Gageac, they can be reached in around an hour.

Heading west, Sainte-Foy-la-Grande is worthy of a visit on a Saturday morning for its fantastic market. Alternatively, explore the countryside to the east across the Vézère valley, famed for its pretty villages and fascinating pre-historic sites, especially around Les Eyzies (40km).

Families are made to feel very welcome at Château De Neveu and there is plenty to keep all ages entertained across this part of the Dordogne, the land of '1001 châteaux'.

Start off by enjoying some wonderful walks or cycle rides straight from the vast grounds and beyond – bike rental can be organised in advance and delivered to the château. There is a public tennis court within a short drive and an equestrian centre around 15 to 20 minutes by car. Of course, there are ample seasonal opportunities for kayaking and canoeing along the Dordogne and Vézère rivers.

Animal lovers should look out for the nearby Parc du Touron (7km), a charming little farm with goats, lamas and a small selection of other animals, although do check which days it is open before you go. More adventurous guests may prefer the tree-top trails at Vergt Aventures, with trails for various ages (starting 3+).

Bergerac is a fine day out for all the family with river cruises along the Dordogne and other activities near the town such as bowling, a waterpark and a pretty lake with miniature boats.

There are also plenty of family-friendly attractions in and around the town of Le Bugue in the Vézère valley, around half an hour away, including Aquarium Périgord Noir, Jungle Golf, Le Big Bird amusement park and the old-fashioned theme park Parc du Bournat.

  • Total perfection

    What a beautiful Chateau. Every possible thing provided with loads of attention to detail and added extras. Total perfection.

  • Brilliant

    on 13/08/2023

    Just brilliant.

  • I hope we will visit again one day!

    on 29/06/2018

    We had a hugely enjoyable week at Chateau De Neveu - the chateau is the most beautiful property and was perfect for our large group of three families. It is ideal for children with the spacious rooms inside the chateau, the secure pool and the vast grounds: our children loved it. We were very grateful for all the equipment provided for children and indeed found the chateau to be well equipped with everything we needed (including cots, high chairs, kids cutlery, etc). The location was stunning - what a wonderful part of the world; and the many tips and advice for places to visit which Francoise provided were invaluable. Since our return we have already been recommending Chateau De Neveu to friends - what a special place!

    Your dear 270 years old Lady has bewitched us. She has revived so many memories and happiness from our youth.

    Our family will remember the chateau as a place of exception combining calm and elegance. We spent happy moments with our friends.
