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.

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! This property is available as a Vill’otel

Yey! Wait… what is that?

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!

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).

The 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.
