The majestic family-owned Chateau de Theleme dates back to the 14th and 17th Centuries and can be found in the centre of the "Triangle of Prehistory." Only a short drive from numerous historic sites and landmarks - the Lascaux caves, chateaux such as the feudal fortress of Commarque and the medieval jewel of Sarlat. Guests will not be short on places to visit should they wish to explore the local area.

The Chateau de Theleme offers panoramic views of the entire valley right up to the Dordogne and boasts an impressive 20 hectares of grounds. The beautiful local countryside is one of the chateau’s main selling points, but for those who prefer to relax, guests can enjoy lazy days in the sun on one of the several loungers around the chateau’s large private pool. The rental also includes complimentary maid service (3 visits per week) to really help you unwind.

Read more about Dordogne


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.
