Twelve acres of beautifully maintained gardens, which feature mature fruit orchards, a swimming pool and a badminton court, are yours to enjoy. Meals can be taken either on the terrace, which boasts a lovely view of the Perigord and the Dordogne, or in the chateau’s dining room.

The gite features 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and is decorated to the same high standards as the chateau itself.

Chateau Le Duc was once the palatial home of a really existed Duke and was given to him as a token of appreciation for his dedication to France. The Duke served under Napoleon and is famed for plotting the victorious Algerian war in 1836. A host of statues and landmarks dedicated to the Duke can be found throughout France.

What Oliver loves…

  • The chateau was originally owned by one of Napoleon's generals and local historians have confirmed Napoleon stayed in the chateau
  • The en-suite bathrooms are as big as the bedrooms!
  • Find time to pop to Segur Le Chateau and Brantome, seriously beautiful hidden gems which are perfect for lazy lunches overlooking the Dordogne
  • Has a spectacular aristocratic interior and exterior, stay in grand splendour and feel like royalty!
  • Large, carefully manicured gardens perfect for a weddings
  • Large cottage means the property can cater for a number of families

What you should know…

  • The kitchen, comparative to the size of the chateau, is a little small, however it has catered for 200 before!
  • With five floors and many bedrooms the house can feel much like a maze, however this adds to the regal character of the house

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.

  • Amazing!

    Posted by Claire G on 12/10/2015

    This is the most beautiful place to stay and the hosts are wonderful!

  • We indulged in fantasies of nobility

    Posted by Gavanndra Hodge - The Evening Standard on 08/03/2010

    We indulged in fantasies of nobility.. the chateau is probably smarter now than it ever was when it was owned by a Duke!

  • Tastefully designed, excellent for parties!

    Posted by Traveller Conde Nast on 24/02/2010

    There is plenty of room here for a large party to spread out, with large formal areas, cosy corners and a great deal of outdoor space. Much of the interior is suitably splendid.
