About the property

Villa in Dordogne, South of France, France

The Chateau des Truffles is a beautiful, tranquil 17th century chartreuse set in a 184 acre estate in the heart of the Dordogne. It is considered locally to be the most important building of its kind in the whole of the Perigord region and sits in a wooded valley with extensive gardens, a heated swimming pool and a lake.

The chateau has recently been returned to its former glory with many original features, including stone and marble fire surrounds and elegant wall paneling. It is able to accommodate up to 20 guests in both the main house and the beautifully converted barn. There are 10 bedrooms in total, 6 in the main house and 4 in the Barn. Included in the price is a 2 hourly cleaning service each weekday morning.

Chateau des Truffles is the perfect location for your holiday or rendezvous, whether you just want to get away from it all and become immersed in another part of hidden France, or you want to be busy discovering all that the Perigord region of the Dordogne can offer.  It is known as the valley of 1000 chateaux with endless pretty medieval villages, fine wines, truffles, local markets and spectacular valleys and rivers. Both the Vezere and the Dorgogne rivers offer great kayaking, canoeing and unparalleled views of the countryside.

From the property there is spectacular walking (there is a 1.5 hour circuit through the estate) and much much more. Within 10 minutes of the property there are tennis courts, golf, horseriding and canoeing. Further afield there are interesting villages, gardens and local markets to visit. The local restaurants and auberges come highly recommended for lunches and dinners serving regional specialties as well as high-end dining. The house with its gardens offer a special place to take time out, relax and rejuvenate.The Main HouseGround floor: kitchen, breakfast room, utility and laundry, a sitting room with bar, bathroom with shower and sauna and a twin bedroom.
