Overview of Chateau Granges Dans

What Oliver loves…

  • Brilliant comfort within the confines of a traditional chateau
  • A unique castle combining authenticity with contemporary design/styling, nestled in the striking Dordogne countryside with views over the surrounding valley
  • Absolute tranquillity and natural surroundings in the middle of culinary France, offering truffles, foie gras and the great Bordeaux wines
  • Proximity of unique historical heritage and cultural sites/villages
  • Huge luxurious en-suite bedrooms, with large spacious bathrooms and showers, each with large double four poster beds
  • There are 3 areas, outside, kitchen, dining room which can all seat 16
  • Large garden, which is completely enclosed giving children the ability to explore with no worries

What you should know…

  • Lots of stairs means that the chateau is not suitable for persons with limited mobility
  • Part of the garden has just been planted and has not reached full maturity yet
  • Due to its remote and tranquil situation the closest village with shops is 10km away
  • The owner lives on-site in the next door wing of the house, offering their expertise and knowledge of the local area

Chateau Granges Dans has been built on ruins dating from the 15th century, and was completely renovated in 2011. The castle is for rent the whole year; up to 16 people can stay in an authentic setting with all modern comforts.

Chateau Granges Dans is positioned on a hill, overlooking the farmlands, forests and nut trees. This beautiful castle is situated in the Dordogne, close to the famous Château de Hautefort in the Périgord Noir.

A day in Chateau Granges Dans begins with breakfast on the terrace overlooking the valley with walnut trees. On a hot summer day, reading in your hammock, you can enjoy the fully fenced, park with rare, century-old trees. The swimming pool offers a well-deserved break from the heat. In the evening you can enjoy the culinary gems of this region, bought on one of the many charming local markets, such as truffles, duck, foie gras, beef, walnuts, mushrooms and fine wines.

When you are looking for a special and luxurious holiday rental for your family or a group of friends, a “pied à terre” to explore the region, a quiet place to re-energise or a unique location for a special event, Chateau Granges Dans is the ideal vacation home.

Map, Location & Local Information

While Château Granges Dans is located near many places of interest and touristic attractions, it offers complete quiet for a relaxing holiday.

Redon is only 10 minutes away from Château de Hautefort, the largest and most prestigious castle in the Périgord Noir. In half an hour you can visit the valley of the Vézère, classified since 1979 as UNESCO world heritage. In Lascaux, the best known cave, you can visit the famous prehistoric wall paintings.

In 45 minutes you find yourself in Sarlat-La-Caneda, founded in the 9th century, with a beautifully renovated centre, cosy streets, terraces and markets.

Worth a day-trip are St-Jean-de-Côle, with its lovely waterfalls and Château, Sorges with its "Maison de la Truffe", Brantôme with its majestic abbey near the water and Thiviers with the "Foie Gras" museum.

For people fond of an active holiday, in the surroundings of Redon there are many options for those who like the wilderness: hiking, horse-riding, biking or canoeing on the many rivers.

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.

Reviews for Chateau Granges Dans

Chateau Granges Dans Reviews


  • Granges D'Ans 1st August

    Posted by Dave C. on 17/08/2015

    Outstanding property, ideal for that large family group. Most attentive owners living on site, never obtrusive just available for advice and help. Totally unspoilt area ideal for just relaxing, eating and drinking, what more can a man need.

    The whole family agreed it was great value for a large group and the teenagers loved the upper turret rooms and we loved them being so far away.

  • Stunning newly renovated Chateau

    Posted by Anette G on 28/08/2013

    We arrived at the Chateau Granges Dans after a long drive and were warmly welcomed by the owners. We were all overwhelmed by how beautiful this Chateau was. It exceeded everyone's expectations. Its has recently been renovated to a very high standard. All rooms are spacious with large double four poster beds and en-suites in all 8 bedrooms. It was decorated tastefully with a good blend of the old and new and met all the expectations of the adults for a luxury château, yet it was child friendly enough for all the children.

    We had a choice of 3 dinning areas either outside on the patio, dinning room or kitchen. All three areas could seat 16 of us. The kitchen was a joy to cook in with all the mod-cons necessary to cater for a large group.

    We loved the outdoor space and the pool was a good size with plenty of sun loungers and chairs to go round. The location was excellent. The nearest supermarket was only a short drive away in Hautefort and there were many beautiful towns to visits within 30-60mins drive away.

    We had a great holiday, Thank you very much!!
