About Maria Landers
We have 3 children and now 3 grandchildren and are avid travelers.
Maria Landers purchased this Chateau / Country House in 1999
Why Maria Landers chose La Roche-Canillac
I became acquainted with the area many years ago and fell in love with the natural beauty of this time capsule village. Its origins can be traced back to the 10th century!
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
The house sits on a hill overlooking the valley, fields and forests which surround it. I have always remarked at how the air and water seems so clean you can feel it almost immediately. The locals tell me, it's too bad we can't bottle the air or we would be rich beyond our wildest dreams. And the stars! On the new moon you have never seen such a sight.

Our stay at the Chateau exceeded all of our expectations!
The house itself is simply beautiful and obviously very loved! Nine of us have stayed in somewhere so well equipped which was a treat especially for all the cooks amongst us!
The children loved the pool and space ....as did all the parents!
Marc could not have been more helpful either
We will be back for sure!
Thanks for everything
Chateau Beaufort is a stunning property with two long entrance driveways, and an immense stone home surrounded by 100 acres of grass, trees and grazing meadows. This home is ideal for groups of 8 to 20. The remodeled kitchen has everything you need to cater to a large group. The first floor bedrooms are spacious and well appointed and the baths are recently remodeled. The 4 bedrooms on the upper floor are less elegant and share one bath. The dining room seats 10 and the kitchen another 10. We did 1000 piece puzzles on one of the kitchen tables as it is such a gathering place. The living room is huge and seats 10 comfortably with a large screen TV and lots of books.
The pool is amazing with a salt water system and lots of lounges for sunbathing. The peace and quiet of the grounds allow you to hear the songbirds singing all day.
The owners (Marc and Marie) were most accomodating our needs early as we settled in and worked out some initial kinks. Their caretakers, Jon Michel and Isabel, were truly amazing and solved all our early issues with beds, plumbing and an older washing machine that was replaced. Jon Michel is also the town baker and a source of daily bread and the occasional pizza.
The grounds teem with flowers that we could cut and bring into the house. An organic garden was a source of lettuce, strawberries, and green beans.
We had 16 friends and 14 family members there at various times during our one month stay and everyone had a life changing experience. The owners are working on solving our one issue of excessive flies that the grazing sheep brought to the party.
Overall, this is an exceptional vacation experience for larger groups and get a five star rating from our family!! This is definitely a “low key” rural location with narrow curvy roads with some distances to travel for sights and activities. The town of La Roche-Canillac is quiet, but has the Boulangerie, Pharmacy and a sweet small grocery store with a great selection of fruits, veggies and general goods. Bob Voyage!!!
Thx for the great review!!!
Lovely French getaway
We recently had the wonderful opportunity to stay at Chateau Beaufort in La Roche Canillac, France.
We decided to stay in the main house, as we were visiting with our large family and a few friends from the US. Last summer my husband and I rented the smaller "Winter House" for a romantic getaway, so we were familiar with the area and the property, and couldn't wait to return.
The grounds are incredible, and you feel so secluded, perfect for a break from the chaos of the city! The caretaker, Ernest, is a kind man who was able to help us out with any small questions we had.
The interior of the Chateau is refined, but also very relaxing. There are loads of great spaces to spend time in- the kitchen table, (more than enough for our large family,) sitting room with ornate tapestries, a library, and a games room (perfect for young kids AND teenagers!), there is something for everyone. Little thoughtful extras like a high chair and plastic cutlery for babies were greatly appreciated as well. As it was winter, we were overjoyed to experience a roaring fire in the incredible fireplace in the sitting room.
I honestly cannot recommend this property enough for anyone looking to get away from it all and experience the Beautiful French countryside.
Accueil chaleureux , familial et professionnel
Nous avons été accueillis de manière tres chaleureuse dans un cadre de rêve dans ce magnifique château . Le village est aussi tres charmant , les gens , les balades , les activités . Souvenir inoubliable !
Stunning chateau in wonderful position surrounded by hills and lakes
We had a brilliant2 week stay with teenage families in August. Fabulous home with exquisite furnishings and fully equipped. Ernest the caretaker was very attentive and helpful, and the owners were super responsive too. Surrounded by lakes which provided endless fun with diving boards and acres of swimming- often entirely alone! Plenty of fun at the bottom of the valley on the upper Dordogne- kayaking, standup paddleboarding, and for the adventurous , waterfall climbing with Arjen. Will definitely return! Picture perfect village of la Roche canillac- With the boulangerie in the Mairie and a well stocked epicerie- both a quick walk from the house, or even shorter bike! Pretty remote so don't expect vibrant nightlife or lots of nearby restaurants- you have to drive to find them. Lovely markets and pretty churches too. Massively recommend!
wonderful and sumptuous Chateau -
A palatial residence with wonderful, stylish interior furnishings as well as large grounds. The perfect place for a family gathering with a pool and games room for kids. The hosts were very helpful as were the couple who live next door and are on hand to help as caretakers. A very verdant area with lots of walks and opportunities for water sports. It is a hidden gem!!
The Chateau de Hautefort is at the centre of one of the most unspoilt and least populated regions in France. It is covered in endless deep river gorges and valleys, ancient forests, lakes, rivers, streams and waterfalls all flowing with Topaz colored waters.
Stream, river and lake fishing, hunting, mountain biking, hiking, camping, orienteering, swimming, water skiing, tennis, sailing, wildlife viewing and motorcycle touring are just some of the activities which can be considered in this green country. Waterfalls, densely forested valleys, medieval castles, ancieze.nt ruins and underground caverns are only some of the sights.
