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.
