Set in the bucolic countryside near the Dordogne River and many timeless villages, Chartreuse De La Gironde is a unique place in a magnificent setting destined for exploring southwestern France’s Dordogne and Lot Valleys.

The exceptional property gives off a typical French Château ambience and it has been exquisitely designed with refined style sleeping up to 14 guests across its seven gorgeous bedrooms.

From the moment you walk in, expect high-end aura thanks to the vintage furnishings and intricately designed fabrics, with tall windows framing views of the French countryside and the splendid garden. On the ground floor, guests can cook their own meals in the large kitchen, with the adjacent dining area being the ideal place to gather every morning and evening. Even here the original features remain, with high ceilings, wooden beams and brick walls exuding rustic charm. Escape to the living room to warm up in front of the crackling fire when afternoons melt into early nights and admire the grand chandeliers and traditional art as the room becomes flooded with dimmed, ambient light. Each bedroom is spacious and unique and two of them even have their own bathroom to ensure maximum privacy and comfort.

Step through the equally spacious and elegant hallway and be greeted by the sight of the estate’s vast lawns with plenty of mature trees and flowering bushes. You can follow the picturesque path to the modern swimming pool when you need to cool down on a hot day or explore the grounds' original character – you’ll find a charming fountain and shaded seating where to have your morning coffee and soak up the relaxing atmosphere. Think about having your meals al-fresco by simply firing up the barbecue in the summer kitchen, while children can make the most out of their holiday in the designated games room equipped with table tennis and a pool table.

The nearest village has all the local amenities you might need when wanting to venture outside – think boulangerie, grocery store and a restaurant. From here, you’re encouraged to set off on picturesque trails and walk along the Dordogne River to discover more natural scenery and villages.

Alternatively, drive to the town of Périgueux to walk around the medieval streets and see its Saint-Front Cathedral, with domes and turrets. Fantastic for a day trip, it also houses a couple of museums and an abundance of restaurants and cafés where you can taste local dishes and soak up the atmosphere.

In just 1.5 hours by car, you can reach Bordeaux with its rich gastro scene, museums, galleries, parks and interesting historical landmarks.

Chartreuse De La Gironde is located just a short stroll away from the Dordogne River and the villages dotted along its banks, in southwestern France’s Dordogne department.

Venture to the local riverside village to get your morning pastries and coffee from the local boulangerie, or visit for lunch when wanting to taste some of the regional dishes in one of the restaurants. There’s also a small grocery store and a supermarket here for the essentials.

The flourishing area surrounding the Dordogne River offers a wealth of opportunities for all types of travellers, and an array of stunning villages and towns, many of them classed as France’s Plus Beaux Villages. Explore the meandering river by hopping on a private boat tour, book a group paddle-boarding session or simply walk along the banks to indulge in incredible views.

A bit further away, you can visit Bergerac, featuring an old town centre, a quay and plenty of boutique shops. Classified as a town of art and history, it hosts outdoor concerts in summer, while others might find the National Tobacco Museum interesting.

Alternatively, head to St Foy le Grande’s bustling Saturday market for souvenirs and regional specialities such as foie gras, confit, crêpes, walnuts and cheeses. After a stroll through the winding alleyways and looking for souvenirs in the local shops, find a quiet table in one of the terraced cafés and bars and watch the world go by.


Less than a 1-hour car drive separates you from Périgueux, a town known for its extensive ancient remains and historical landmarks which transport you back into the times of the Roman Empire. On hot summer days, escape the heat by visiting one of the many museums such as the Musée Gallo-Romain Vesunna or Musée d'art et d'archéologie du Périgord, before having a picnic in one of the small leafy parks nearby.

Bordeaux, the capital of the finest wine region in the world boasting 362 historic monuments can be reached in just 1.5 hours by car. The city’s extraordinary gastro scene is worth lingering for, with an array of excellent restaurants, bistros and bars scattered all around the quaint streets. Start your day at the Place de la Victoire, a large square with an 18th-century arc and a marble obelisk at its centre, before discovering more landmarks and sights exuding noteworthy historical elegance, such as the Grand Théâtre and Place des Quinconces, one of the largest city squares in Europe. At the Marché des Capucins – a famous daily market with street food and market stalls selling local products – you can also immerse yourself in the local culture while tantalising your senses.

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.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages

There’s plenty of space and entertainment activities to spend an entire week just on the property’s grounds, but it would be a pity not to explore the surrounding area during your stay.

Hop on the bikes supplied by the property owners and cycle through snaking country roads to admire lavender and sunflower fields, while admiring great views along the way. There are many spots where you can spread out a blanket and enjoy a typical French picnic in order to recharge your batteries and spend quality family time together.

The Dordogne River offers a wealth of opportunities for more family fun, such as canoeing, kayaking, paddle-boarding, horse-riding and even hopping on an organised boat trip that lets you see historic bridges and admire the natural backdrops.

On a warm day, why not visit one of the treetop adventure parks or spend a day at Quercyland? This aquapark complex boasts rides, boating and a labyrinth alongside relaxation areas for parents and the tiniest ones.

When you find yourself in Bordeaux with children, use this as an opportunity to visit the Cap Sciences kids' science museum which features interactive exhibitions, workshops and activities all dedicated to different aspects of science.
