Overview

Wedding Venue Recommended Pool Ideal for Kids Pets Welcome Walk to Village Ideal for Parties

The old bones of this 14th century chateau in Midi-Pyrénées stand proudly on an hectare of green parkland. With sweeping views over the surrounding territory (known for sunflower and wine production), your guests will commune with this countryside on the edge of the Dordogne. Inside, simple furnishings let the chateau's character shine; stone walls, well-loved brick fireplaces, and mysterious spiral stairs suggest a storied past.

Up to 24 guests can spread out on the grounds here - they’ll especially love the swimming pool and barbecue area in the summertime. A separate apartment in the chateau lends extra privacy for a large family - it features its own kitchen and living areas, and a dorm room with 5 twin beds for the kids.

The nearest town to your holiday chateau is Tournon (7 km), a 15th century city sitting beside the Rhône. Wineries are located throughout the town and surrounding region - across the river is Tain l’Hermitage, the birthplace of Syrah. You may fly in through Bergerac (60 km), a hub of wine-related commerce for the Dordogne (and certainly worth a pause on your way to the chateau!)

Oliver Approved

What you should know…

  • You'll need a car, as this chateau isn't near a village. You'll likely drive from the nearest airport in Bergerac, 60 km away.
  • The fantastic swimming pool  slightly secluded - it’s a lovely walk to get there!

Region

A relatively new addition to France, the Midi-Pyrénées was created to surround the cultural capital of Toulouse in the late 1970s. You might think that its relative youth would mean the Midi-Pyrénées is short on character or identity, but remember, this is France we’re talking about – the whole country is steeped in history and tradition. Encompassing parts of Gascony, Languedoc, the Gers and several others, you’ll get a varied slice of the whole French experience here, not least if you stay at one of our beautiful chateaux in the Midi-Pyrénées! And if you want to discover the best of what the region has to offer, our Midi-Pyrénées travel guide is here to show you where to go, what to eat and how you can make the best of your break with some amazing activities.
