Overview

About the property

Villa in Gravelle, Dordogne, France

The elegant and imposing mid-16th Century Chateau de Sioraque is situated in 40 acres of private grounds and boasts excellent views over the Isle River valley. Six lavishly decorated bedrooms and six bathrooms are available for exclusive hire. A swimming pool is available for private use; it is fitted with a child security alarm.

The Chateau de Sioraque features stunning interior decoration, including mosaics, detailed plasterwork, parquets, stone-flagged floors, and high ceilings with magnificent exposed oak beams. Many of the rooms are covered in wood paneling, while an enormous 17th century fireplace forms the centrepiece of the dining room. Beupoil family wallpaper still hangs in the living room.

The Chateau de Sioraque is located on a hilltop village between the two towns of ‘La Roche’ and ‘Gravelle’, and overlooks the river Isle and the woods of Antoniac. The architecture of other buildings in the village bear a remarkable similarity to the chateau; this is because the family who once owned the chateau also owned the village and rewarded the local farmers with housing and food in return for their labours in the fields.

The nearest airport is Bergerac 45km away and the nearest town of a reasonable size is Perigueux 10km away. There are plenty of local high-end restaurants in Perigueux such as Les Huit, Hercules Poireau and Les Clos Saint Front. There is also a large outdoor market on Wednesdays and Saturdays and in Saint Astier on Thursdays. A large supermarket and shopping mall is 5km away.

Local activities include golf (5 minutes away), tennis (2 minutes away), canoeing/kayaking (10 minutes away) and wine tasting in Saint Emilion, Bergerac, Pomerol and Monbazillac (all within 45 minutes).

Brantome is a delightful little town which has earned the moniker ‘The Venice of the Dordogne’ due to its location on an island. See the oldest bell tower in France at the Carolingian abbey, take a canoe or boat ride on the river, browse the windows of the many shops or sample the local cuisine.

Bergerac is a riverside town with medieval houses that line the streets of the centre, virtually unchanged for centuries, and over a hundred vineyards cater to wine enthusiasts of varying tastes. For those who enjoy a sweet wine, Monbazillac is a pretty good bet. Sarlat is another medieval town with well preserved streets and a good market.

The river is an essential part of the landscape of the Dordogne, and runs straight through the southern part of the region, taking in many scenic towns along the way. A boat trip is the best way to explore these villages – enjoy stunning scenery along the way and bask in the sheer charm of this region.Six bedrooms with en suite bathrooms are laid out across three floors. With an area of over 1000sq/m, guests will have a considerable amount of space to relax in. The chateau can also provide cots for youngsters.

On the ground floor is the spacious kitchen with all modern conveniences, including dishwasher, microwave, induction cooking top, oven, toaster, electric coffee maker and large fridge. There is a large kitchen table with more than adequate supply of pots, pans, dishware, glasses and cutlery. The large, grand dining room has a period fireplace and there are two further living rooms, one of which is equipped with TV, CD & DVD player. The bedroom on this floor has an en suite bathroom with hydro-massage shower. There is also a laundry room with washer and dryer, a downstairs bathroom and an office with internet access.

On the first floor there are 2 double bedrooms and 2 king size bedrooms, 3 of which have bathrooms and the other with comes with a hydro-massage shower.

On the second floor is the 6th bedroom with king size bed and en suite bathroom. There is a billiard room in the loft. All bedrooms come with luxury linen and pool maintenance and twice weekly maid service is also included in the rental price.

The newly planted formal gardens contain around 2000 boxwoods, 400 rose bushes, trees and rhododendrons. The wild woodlands flourish with oaks, pines, chestnuts and acacias, and many well priced varieties of edible mushrooms are readily found during the autumn. Within the 16 hectares of grounds is the private swimming pool (12x5m) equipped with an alarm system. It can also be lit for night swimming.
