On a cliff overlooking the Dordogne River, the Chateau de Gombert, a 14th century castle in the Midi-Pyrenees, combines luxury living and French tradition. Dine on a stone terrace whose archways have breathtaking views, and swim in a pool on 5 hectares of wooded grounds.

The chateau’s renovated interior includes the original stone walls but all the comforts you need. The bedrooms feature en-suite bathrooms, which allow families travelling together to have private space. The living room has an impressive stone fireplace, and the fully equipped kitchen is ready for your culinary creations. If you’d prefer to relax, daily housekeeping and breakfast service is available.

At this French luxury villa, you’re near the best of the Dordogne and Lot areas. The town of Souillac (8 km) has the shops you need, as well as a charming museum of automated toys. For a longer trip, visit Sarlat-le-Caneda (29 km), a market town ideal for foodies, or Rocamadour (16 km), a pilgrimage town with stunning cliff-side views. Not in the mood to travel? There’s a Michelin star restaurant just 2 km away.

The Chateau de Gombert is near Brive (35 km), Limoges (130 km) and Toulouse (160 km) airports.

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. 

What can be arranged?
Breakfast, cleaning, welcome drinks and hamper, plus more! Check the 'Extras' tab for all the details.

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.

  • It was one of the best holidays myself and my family members have ever had!

    on 04/10/2019

    I hired the Chateau De Gombert in the Dordogne through Oliver's Travels. It was expensive but in my mind worth every penny. The place was absolutely magical. Overlooking the Dordogne River with fabulous kitchen, rooms and terrace. There were 14 of us sitting out on the terrace every night eating and drinking under the canopy of stars. Everything went very smoothly. There were a couple of small hiccups but these were instantly put right by contacting Zuzana, the concierge at Oliver's Travels. Would not hesitate for a moment to use Oliver's Travels again
