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.
What Oliver loves…
- The chateau is situated in the middle of some stunning countryside with exceptional views in every direction.
- There is a real sense of history at the chateau - you really do feel as though you are stepping back in time and living as the French aristocracy of the 17th century.
- The infinity pool is just fantastic!
What you should know…
- The stairs could be awkward for children or elderly/infirm.
- The Wi-Fi is only available on ground floor.

Enjoy gourmet dining experiences with our new Chef Service!
We’re now offering our customers the chance to enjoy some unforgettable eats with our new Chef Service! Choose from booking a single sumptuous meal with a private chef for that special occasion, or hire a chef to cook your meals for all or part of your holiday - it’s as flexible as it is delicious.
A) Single Meal Service: A chef will travel to this villa and whip up a fantastic meal for you and your guests. The chef will arrive with all the necessary ingredients as well as the talent to turn them into something unforgettable. They’ll serve the meal and clear up afterwards - an easy and entertaining way to enjoy a top quality meal in your very own villa!

So why worry about self-catering when you can have everything taken care of?
Of course, before booking this service, we suggest you contact the property owner as they might already offer a similar cook or chef service in-house. To find out more simply visit www.oliverstravels.com/chefs.

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.
