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 with a “Welcome Basket” of foods to keep you until the next afternoon, 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 en-suite bedrooms split between the main house and a beautifully converted barn. The two spaces are united by a shared private pool, terrace with outdoor kitchen, and gardens (roses, herbs, and fruit trees). To thoroughly explore the tree-lined valley, a walking path will take you around the estate on a 1.5 hour tour.

The surrounding countryside begs to be explored - within 10 minutes of the chateau you’ll find excellent sporting opportunities: golf, horseback riding, canoeing, 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! 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.

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!

B) Full Chef Service: If you really want to kick back and relax, we can arrange for a chef to cater for the duration of your holiday (or part of it). With a range of options from simple family catering to full-on haute cuisine, we can organise a meal plan and a price to suit your needs. 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

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.

  • 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.
