The dining room seats 8 in comfort, 10 at a pinch. But the covered terrace seats 12 around a large square table. The round table in the kitchen, is perfect for quick breakfasts and marvellous for games of cards. There is also a stone table out on the terrace with 10 chairs for pre-dinner drinks looking out to the floodlit Chateau de Castelnaud across the valley, and directly under the starry ‘Milky Way’.

Living rooms

The sitting room is large, high ceilinged with a collection of seating. There is a large tv with an English satellite connection and a dvd player. There is a door to connect directly to the covered terrace.

Bedrooms

On the first floor there is an eclectic mix of bedrooms. All with en suite bathrooms and very comfortable beds. Superb linens, towels, robes and even face cloths. There are two king size beds, two queen size beds and two singles. Although the house will sleep 10 we think that it is probably better for 3 or 4 couples as the twin room is very small, full size single beds so it is your choice.

Bathrooms

The bathrooms are all en suite, 4 with walk in showers, 1 over a full bath. There is also a wc between the kitchen and the hallway.

Heating

Central heating generally and electric heating in the bathrooms, with wood burning stoves in the kitchen and the sitting room

Entertainment

There are some boardgames and boules.

Garden and outside

The swimming pool is set in south facing terrace with plenty of comfortable loungers and some parasols. The pool had a new water cleansing system in August 2014.

Parking and garages

Outside there is private parking, some of it shaded.

Visitor suitability

Over the years the house, with its large reception rooms and great kitchen has provided comfortable holiday space for a number of different groups. A quintet needing to practice together. A family bringing student children for a final swot before the exams. Weddings, birthday and anniversary celebrations. Wine tastings. A base for exploring the wonderful history of this area and often just relaxing and enjoying the house with family and friends. We have a superb chef who will give you a meal to remember and cooking lessons.

The Owner Recommends

Chateau and gardens de Marquissac

A wonderful garden on the top of the hill behind the house with organised activities from Easter through to the end of summer. There is now a great climbing wall, very scary!

Chateau de Beynac

Medieval, unrestored and spooky a real taste of the past. It's a 30 minute stroll along the riverside and then up the lane featured in the film 'Chocolate' to the Chateau.

Chateau de Castelnaud

Museum of medieval history and weapons, fascinating, especially for the children, with many interactive games

Chateau de Milandes

The home of Josephine Baker, singer, dancer and philanthropist
