Chateau des Arts, nestled in the stunning countryside of Nouvelle-Aquitaine, is a historic and spacious haven for up to 15 guests, which is spread across two floors. This chateau, with its roots deeply embedded in the history of the region, has been cherished by the same family for generations, offering a truly authentic home away from home that exudes charm and character.

Having recently undergone thoughtful renovations, the house seamlessly blends modern comforts with its rural surroundings, creating an inviting and unpretentious atmosphere. Reflecting a commitment to a slower pace of life, the chateau is well-equipped for a large family or group of friends seeking respite in the countryside.

The ground floor serves as the social heart of the home, featuring two generously sized living rooms. One, equipped with a TV, encourages collective film watching, while the other is a sanctuary filled with books, plush sofas, and a welcoming fireplace. The farmhouse-style kitchen is fully-fitted, ensuring every culinary need is met while harmonising with the chateau's age through its original tiled floor.

Chateau des Arts boasts seven bedrooms, with one double room conveniently located on the ground floor, accompanied by a contemporary shower room. The first floor unveils a dedicated living space with a football table—a perfect retreat for the younger guests. The remaining six bedrooms on this floor offer diverse accommodations, including a double room with an additional single bed, three double rooms, and two rooms each with two single beds. Some bedrooms feature private bathrooms, while others share generously sized family bathrooms. All rooms are warm and welcoming guaranteeing a restful night's sleep for every guest.

As you step outside, you will find yourself in 10,000m2 of grounds and manicured parkland with lawns, towering trees and pretty florals. The brand new, heated swimming pool is a fantastic feature and is a great place to splash around and make memories with the kids. You can also cook al-fresco at the pool house and dine at the outdoor tables, overlooking the undulating countryside.

When you wish to venture out, there are woodlands and walking trails on your doorstep and the nearest village is a short stroll away. You are also well-placed for exploring the sights and sounds of the city of Limoges which is 27km away and packed with museums, galleries, shops and restaurants.

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.
