You’ll want for nothing at this singular 17th century chateau in the Dordogne, where every room is elegantly appointed and every comfort provided. The on-site caretaker and concierge will greet you and every weekday a maid will come in to tidy. Your guests won’t have a care in the word, only curiosity about what treasures lie hidden within this 184 acre estate.

This holiday chateau includes 10 bedrooms with private bathrooms split between the main house and a beautifully converted barn. The two spaces are united by a shared private pool, a wisteria covered pergola and gardens (roses, herbs, and fruit trees). To thoroughly explore the tree-lined valley, there are some wonderful walks from the chateau.

The surrounding countryside begs to be explored - within 10 minutes of the chateau you’ll find excellent sporting opportunities: golf, canoeing, go-karts and tennis. Travel farther to Montignac (22 km) or Périgueux (30 km) for more bustling medieval towns with wonderful markets. To find the centre of the region's wine production, travel to Bergerac (44 km), where the hillsides beside the Dordogne river are an oenophile's delight.

Good news! For a little extra, this property is available 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’s included?
Breakfast, cleaning, welcome drinks and hamper, plus more! Check the Extras tab for all the details.

Chateau des Truffles is the perfect location for your holiday or rendezvous, whether you just want to get away from it all and become immersed in another part of hidden France, or you want to be busy discovering all that the Perigord region of the Dordogne can offer. It is known as the valley of 1000 chateaux with endless pretty medieval villages, fine wines, truffles, local markets and spectacular valleys and rivers. Both the Vezere and the Dorgogne rivers offer great kayaking, canoeing and unparalleled views of the countryside.

From the property there is spectacular walking and much much more. Within 10 minutes of the property there are tennis courts, golf, paint-balling, go-karts and canoeing. Further afield there are interesting villages, gardens and local markets to visit. Don't forget the vast number of UNESCO listed sites of prehistoric interest within the valleys of the Dordogne and Vezere rivers.  Cro-Magnon, for example, was discovered at Les Eyzies de Tayac just 11 km away.

The local restaurants and auberges come highly recommended for lunches and dinners serving regional specialties as well as high-end dining. The house with its gardens offer a special place to take time out, relax and rejuvenate.

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.

Reviews

  • Paradise in Perigord

    Posted by Timothy C on 02/08/2016

    We enjoyed our week enormously. The property accommodates a large party (we needed all ten bedrooms) but retains elegance and intimacy. It feels like a grand family home and not a vast and faded pile. The interiors are in excellent condition. We had wonderful weather so spent most of our time outside, in the spacious and beautiful gardens. Jennifer, the property manager was very helpful and friendly. Overall, the Chateau des Truffles provides an Englishman's dream of a French country house.
