CHATEAU DE LA GUERINCHE

Thiviers Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Luxury chateau rental with private pool in the Dordogne

This is a stunning 17th century chateau found just 80km south of Limoges in picturesque rolling countryside and is an ideal base to explore the beautiful region of Dordogne.

The Chateau de la Guerinche is set within 15 acres of spacious grounds, gardens and orchards that open out onto to a lake and private woodland paths, that lend themselves to leisurely strolls. The Chateau de la Guerinche had been in the same family for over 300 years – the Comtes de Tessyiere military family – and is the epitome of 17th century manoir living.

Now restored, all the rooms in the Chateau de la Guerinche are individually furnished to an exceedingly high standard and are full of authentic French fabrics, antiques and silks.

The chateau is poised on elevated ground overlooking the park and an elegant 12 acre Arboretum. The spacious inter-connecting salons guarantee a lovely temperature in both summer and winter.

A stone flagged entrance hall that leads up to a Grand Salon with antique furniture opens the chateau. The dining room has a large oak table and easily seats 12. There is also a billiard room close by with inter connecting doors to the bureau and petit salon.

For smaller parties the kitchen can also be used as a dining space and comes with open fire & seating. It is also stocked with 2 dishwashers, 2 fridges, microwave, fitted units and a stone sink. Just off the kitchen is a versatile utility room with a laundry & scullery as well as a pool changing/shower room.

On the first floor there are four grand double bedroom suites with antique furniture and polished wood floorboards. Each has an en-suite bathroom and is decorated with wallpaper and fabrics.

On the second floor there are two more twin bedrooms which also have en-suite bathrooms and antique furniture and a couple of bedrooms that are suitable for children or teenagers.

The beautiful gardens feature an extensive arboretum overlooking a lake so that you may enjoy walks throughout the park. A large private swimming pool is situated in the middle of the wild flower meadow. On either side of the house there are two dining terraces: one that sits next to the kitchen with a large round table ideal for family lunches in the shade of an ancient box tree with views stretching out across the valley. The other terrace is more formal accessed from the salons for drinks or a quiet evening meal.

Simply Chateau was set up in 2003 after two old school chums enjoyed a fantastic holiday with friends in a French chateau in the Dordogne. Oliver & Ravi, the two directors of the company, were amazed at what terrific value these stunning chateau rentals represented and decided to spread the word. Soon after the website www.simplychateau.com was born.

Today we deliver a wide range of luxury villas, private chateau and charming farmhouses throughout France, Italy, Spain, the UK and the Caribbean. We have something for everyone from charming manor houses representing great value for money to fully catered & serviced luxury chateau, all handpicked and chosen with care. Bookings are made direct with the owner of your chosen property to guarantee you get the best booking price available.

At Simply Chateau we only work with the very best rental properties on the market. All of our properties have been handpicked and we take our customer feedback extremely seriously. We operate a ‘three strikes and you’re out��� policy - that is to say if we have 3 negative reviews relating to any of our properties we cease to advertise it.

A lovely week's holiday.

A lovely week's holiday.
  • 5 of 5
Our party of 20 had high expectations having gained a sense of what was in store from your website. But the reality was altogether different. On arrival we were all strangely silent, genuinely shocked by the extraordinary beauty of your home and its setting. On our first day we didn't leave the house and it was hard to drag ourselves away after that but the stunning landscape beckoned and on subsequent days, guided by your thoughtful guide, we explored the region on bikes, foot and on one day picnicked at the watering hole by the bridge where most of the children and adults including our four year old jumped off the cliff into the water.
We ate like kings, cooking for ourselves every day in your extremely well equipped kitchen - delights such as freshly made bread, ice cream, barbecued squid and prawns. On our last night Ino cooked for us.We worried for him because there was such culinary talent among our party we thought he would be unable to reach the high standards to which we had become accustomed. But we were proved wrong. He cooked a splendid feast and it was a real pleasure to relax so completely on our last night.
The stunning pool was in constant use when we were home...but the pool was not only a joy for the kids but also for the adults - it is so rare for a house pool to be so long that it allows for a proper swim.
Thank you both for allowing us to spend the week in your incredible home.There was total consensus that this was the best holiday any of our families had had.
It will not surprise you to learn that we would love to return. So please, please if you have any spaces left for next summer do allow us to book again.
With much gratitude and thanks.
