About Paul & Jen Lowther

We are an English couple living in UK close to London. Jacquie is an interior designer and David is a retired finance executive.

We bought the property because we love southwestern France.

Paul & Jen Lowther purchased this chateau / country house in 2006

Why Paul & Jen Lowther chose Perigord Noir

This is a historic building, dating from 1680, in a beautiful country setting, tranquil and safe. We have modernised and improved it to a high standard of comfort.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The Estate is only ever booked to one group at a time, who thus have exclusive use of the Estate and all facilities. It is the perfect place for groups of family, friends, or those with a shared interest.

Chateau Forge du Roy sits in a peaceful valley estate of 184 acres woods and meadowland, and is a few km from the Vezere valley which has 147 UN listed sites of prehistoric interest including the famous Lascaux painted caves. It is located 1km along a quiet country lane off the Perigueux - Sarlat road (D47). The rural location is perfect for hiking and cycling, and canoeing is wonderful along the Vezere from Les Eyzies de Tayac - 14 km away. Les Eyzies also has two of the most famous French museums of prehistory, a good selection of restaurants, and a number of troglodyte caves.

The Grotte de Rouffignac - 8 km - has prehistoric animal paintings, and the small town of Rouffignac 7 km has a busy market on Sundays and is the nearest for supermarket and butcher/baker.

A greater variety of shops exists at Le Bugue, the largest local town at 10km.

There is a challenging 18 hole golf course at Mortemart 10mins away.

Further afield Sarlat 30mins, Domme and Roque Gigeac are a must to visit. The Dordogne and Vezere rivers meet at Limeuil which is a beautiful picnic spot.

Near Belves is a hot air ballooning centre for trips above the region (details in the house information book).
