Recommended Pool Ideal for Kids

The charming 15th century Chateau de Simon, a holiday chateau in Aquitaine, is situated on 15 acres of private woodland with a variety of wildlife and the beautiful river Dropt running through. Go for a dip in a large swimming pool, then enjoy outdoor dining in the nearby summer house with an attached bathroom. The chateau is in perfect position, on the border between the Dordogne and the Lot et Garonne.

The family house, furnished with antiques, sleeps 12 in 6 bedrooms with a high standard of comfort. The two first-floor master bedrooms have unique features like wooden beams and amazing views. You’ll find original ceilings, stone walls and marble fireplaces in some rooms, including the grand salon. Walk out to the gardens from the drawing room's French doors.

When you’re ready to explore the area, you’re near several medieval towns and castles, including a market town and Eymet (9 km), which has a large English-speaking population. Wine lovers can visit the area’s many vineyards, including St. Emilion, Monbazillac and Cahors appellations. Seek out nearby man-made lakes with sandy beaches for swimming and water sports.

This luxury chateau is 20 km from the Bergerac airport.

    Posted by Gary on 26/05/2018

    This was a very nice place, it would easily sleep 8 (we were only 2). There were nice, modern bathrooms and very comfortable beds. The person on site, was very helpful and friendly. We had a really nice stay and enjoyed our time there.
