Overview

Castelnaud la Chapelle Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 apartments each sleeping 4 people in village on bank of Dordogne river

Le Rouquet is in the old part of Castelnaud la Chapelle. The picturesque village runs down the hillside from the medieval castle to the River Dordogne and the property lies midway between the two. It is built in the local style of honey coloured stone, has a sunny South facing aspect and wonderful views across the valley from the windows and the terrace. Le Rouquet has been renovated to form two independent holiday gites which can be rented separately or together at a discount.

Le Rouquet is in the picturesque village of Castelnaud la Chapelle. The house was built over 200 years ago with the local honey coloured stone and inside retains many of the old features including stone walls and beams. The outside walls are covered with roses, vines and climbing plants. The apartment has been recently refurbished to a very high standard and all furniture and fittings are new. It is light and airy and sleeps up to 4 people in comfort.

The apartment has a large modern bright fully equipped kitchen and has a log fire making spring and autumn holidays a delight. You can eat in the kitchen but on warm sunny days you will probably choose to eatoutside on the sunny balcony which overlooks the valley and church below. This is extremely convenient as the balcony is directly outside the kitchen and there is a barbeque here for your use. Stairs from the kitchen lead uupto the pretty bedroom which has twin beds and is heavily beamed with polished chestnut flooring.

From the kitchen a few steps lead down to the sitting room which is beamed and has lovely stone features with views across the valley. It is possible to drive up the narrow lane to the house to unload luggage etc. but it is not possible to park the car outside the house. However there are several free parking areas a short distance away, the nearest being about 60 metres in the church square.

From the time you arrive at Le Rouquet there is no need to use your car unless you wish as Castelnaud has all that you need. There is an excellent baker, a wonderful butcher (that also sells cold meats and some ready prepared dishes), a small general store and post office (with ATM machine) as well as an excellent restaurant and other eating places.

There is excellent river bathing in the village and canoe trips can be organised from the office on the river bank.

The walking in the wooded hills behind the village along the marked trails is delightful and makes a restful alternative if you have had your fill of the markest and historic sites in the area. There are maps for all the local walks in the apartment.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an absolutely fantastic time in your holiday home. It could not have been more perfect. Sometimes when you see photographs of holiday homes and the surrounding area/views, I am a little disappointed with reality. Yours was much better than we could ever have imagined. The weather was perfect, absolutely everything was fantastic. It was true when we made an entry in the visitors book, 'we really don't want to go home'. Thank you so much for a very memorable time, the best holiday ever!

Wonderful holiday opportunity

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this holiday rental for a week, and wished we had been able to stay much longer. The owners, Judy and Paul, were fantastic in communicating with us regarding the rental. All went very smoothly in making the reservation and payment. This was great customer service.

The rental unit itself was superb. It was clean, well-maintained, very well furnished. The large kitchen was very modern, with all that was necessary to prepare meals. The beds were comfortable, as were the couch and chairs in the den. There was plenty of room for the two of us. We really enjoyed staying in the rental unit and would love to stay there again.

As for the location, it was also outstanding. We visited most of the towns in the area, and we believe Castelnaud was the best place to stay. We had nice meals in the restaurants, and had a fantastic visit to the castle. At the bottom of the village there was a boulangerie and post office that came in handy. Other major sightseeing venues were within an easy drive, as was the grocery in Sarlat.

This was our first visit to the Perigord/Dordogne, and we will return. When we do, we hope this rental unit will again be available.

Castelnaud is in an area of exceptional beauty with pretty medieval villages and castles to explore. Nearby Sarlat,La Roque Gageac, Beynac and Domme are outstanding examples of villages with beautiful medieval architecture and all within just a few kms. Other attractions include the colourful markets selling local produce, formal gardens and the many prehistoric sites including the famous Lascaux caves with their wall paintings.

No visit is complete without a canoe trip down the river which can be arranged from Castelnaud (you can choose how far you want to be taken upriver and then it is an easy paddle with the river doing most of the work and the chance to take a break at one of the riverside rest stops for refreshment and a swim).

There are also many well marked walks through the wooded countryside around Castelnaud for the more energetic. On a hot day why not walk down to the river and enjoy a picnic on the grassy bank in the shade of the trees and cool off with a swim.
