Overview

Recommended Pool Ideal for Kids

Chateau Fleur, built in 1611 during the time of King Louis XIII, has been beautifully renovated and furnished with a mix of contemporary and traditional French furniture. Situated on a low hill with expansive views of its surroundings, its classical architecture is one of careful symmetry and alignment.

Entry is via a stunning avenue of trees past classical iron gates and around a courtyard of traditional French sculptured hedges. Once through the front doors, you will be amazed at the three storey chandeliers casting the most wonderful light on elegant limestone balustrade stairs.

Being a chateau that has never been abandoned by its owners and its current owners only being its fifth since it was built, the chateau retains the best of everything of its period. From the ornate window handles in the shape of winged angels to its sculptured limestone balustrade staircase, imposing fireplaces, full length French windows, beamed ceilings and classical proportions, it is a home of perfect light and tranquility.

As well as its historical character and the beauty of its architecture, the high standard of the furnishings and facilities is evident throughout. The impressive kitchen is particularly noteworthy, it has been designed for a chef with only the very best professional appliances. Throughout the chateau you will appreciate the great care the current owners have taken to ensure the very best quality, design and finish for their guests.

This also extends to the stunning grounds, simply wonderful to stroll through, where you will find the spacious and inviting swimming pool surrounded by beautiful lawns, trees and gardens. The decked sun terrace is a perfect place to relax, read a book, have an aperitif and take in the pretty views that surround you.

The property now has a new Pavilion by the gates which increases the facilities, the property can now sleep 16 guests when the Pavilion is booked.

Good news! For a little extra, this property can be booked as a Vill'otel

It’s the perfect combo of the privacy of your own personal villa, with all the luxury and convenience of a hotel.

The Château is located in the village of St Geyrac is on the border of Perigord Blanc (known for its beautiful limestone buildings) and Perigord Noir (known for its truffles). The medieval city of Perigueux, the capital of Perigord Blanc, with its magnificent cathedral and Roman ruins is only a 20 minute drive away.

This area of the Dordogne is well known as the gastronomical centre of France with many great restaurants (some with Michelin stars!) and farmer's markets. Many grand chateaux and historical sites are nearby, including the Lascaux caves of prehistoric paintings made 17,000 years ago and the limestone dwellings at Les Eyzies inhabited by the Cro-Magnon man.

Sarlat, the capital of Perigord Noir, is another charming medieval city 30 minutes away and has an unmissable old town consisting of impeccably restored stone buildings and a medieval cathedral. Canoeing along the river and hiking are two of the popular activities in the Dordogne that should also be checked out!

Chateau Fleur is equidistant between Bergerac to the west and Brive-la-Gaillarde to the east (both 45 minutes drive away) where there are direct flights to and from London and Paris. The international airport at Bordeaux, 75 minutes away, has connecting flights to many capitals of the world.

St Geyrac is a quiet commune with a church, a bar and a restaurant. There are no shops there. La Douze, the next village just 7 km away from the chateau has a few restaurants, a good boulangerie/patisserie plus a few shops.

Milhac d’Auberche is a village 4km away with an excellent Michelin “bib gourmande” restaurant (one grade below a Michelin star).

Trelisac (located between St Geyrac and Perigueux) has a shopping park with huge supermarkets and many stores selling homewares, furnitures, clothing etc.

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.
