We live and work in the South of France since 2005. In the middle of the vineyards of the Dordogne, close by St Emilion, Bergerac, Périgueux, Bordeaux or Sarlat and the Atlantic Coast.
Our adventure started with renting out a few rooms in our house. Step by step we built out our dream….Today we offer our guests a choice out of 5 gîtes, chambre d’hôtes, 2 perigourdine-houses, a village house and a renovated manor house.
Iris Jaspers purchased this chateau / country house in 2009
It was not intentional…but summer 2009, just after the birth of our twin girls, we fell in love….
…the old stones of the mannorhouse “La Chartreuse des Moulins' had seduced us!
After a whole winter of working and renovating, our new project was born in 2010.
230 years ago this big house was an old post “house” with its 2 pigeonniers for the pigeons. Today it has become a luxury guest house.
We kept the old elements of the building and mixed them with new, white, cool and design furniture.
It’s become an ideal location for families or friends. It sleeps from 4 to 16 persons.

The Chatreuse is absolutely stunning. We stayed in late June early July with a large group of friends which the property is ideal for. The overall property and its surrounding is stunning with a view looking out on to fields. Its a perfect place to spend some time relaxing- particularly in the hot tub! The property was beautifully clean and tidy. The owners are extremely friendly, they were very helpful and met us at the house with a warm welcome. The whole stay was perfect and we will definitely be back to stay very soon!
We were here in August with two families. We didn' t want to leave anymore. The house is a huge beautiful family house, lovely decorated...situated between the vineyards. For all family members you have absolutely everything you. need: playground, great pool, a hot tub, a bath tub in our bedroom...and all the room you wish for. The owners are great and offer the best service. We will definitely come back.

Dear Iris and Michiel,
We really enjoyed our 2 weeks in Montazeau.
It was a dream for the adults and our children.
This was like a holiday should be, cooking with friends, childeren playing in the pool, sometimes a glass of the fine neighbour's wine, and queit nights
I'm sure we'll come back next year.

Montazeau is one of the highest villages of the neighbourhood. It’s located at about 10 km south of Saint Martin de Gurson, where we live at “Le Guinot”. Montazeau has beautiful views! You see the other villages far away and there are vineyards all over the place…..
It’s a lovely area with lots of little streets. Walking and biking are beautiful in a hilly landscape.
At about 5 min. there’s a bigger village with bakeries, an all round shop, a pharmacy, a post office, pub, restaurant. At 10 km you find all bigger supermarkets
Welcome to wine country!
We're in the heart of wine country in Montazeau! Here you can enjoy award-winning local red, rosé and white Bergerac and Montravel wines, made at properties a short distance from your holiday home.
Just 30 minutes away are St. Emilion and Pomerol, exclusive districts of the vast Bordeaux vineyards and home to some of the finest (and at Ch. Petrus, the most expensive!) wines in the world.
We can organise a tour of a vineyard on request.
