Impressive 18th Century Chateau situated in the quaint medieval village of Siorac-en-Perigord, on the banks of the River Dordogne, close to the many attractions of this beautiful area of France. The famous medieval market town of Sarlat is 30 minutes away and Bergerac airport is only 45 minutes by car.
This superb Chateau lies within an acre of private walled gardens, in tranquil surroundings yet within minutes of local amenities. The views from the Chateau are impressive.
The 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom Chateau has been completely renovated whilst retaining many of its original features. The rooms are spacious and light with high ceilings, large windows and stone floors. All the rooms are tastefully styled with beautiful antique furniture. The owner is an antiques dealer so the furnishings in each room are constantly being changed.
In the grounds there is a spacious cottage which can accommodate an additional 2 or 3 guests. It comprises of 1 double bedroom and 1 single bedroom, a shared bathroom, a combined lounge dining room and compact galley kitchen. If extra accommodation is required then the cottage can be rented alongside the Chateau. Further details for the Chateau cottage ( ref: AD006853 ) can be found on a separate page.
The delightful and well kept garden has many shaded areas suitable for al fresco dining, a sunny courtyard and the private swimming pool (11 x 5 m) is alarmed for safety.

My husband and I have been property managers for 17 years, looking after second homes for owners wishing to rent them for the summer season. In 2014 we took over a small holiday rentals company Poolside Farmhouses & Cottages. Over the years we have amassed an excellent understanding of the standards required and expected by holiday makers and property owners alike.
