The Experience

Take cocktails to the terrace as the sun goes down…and be dazzled. The view from every rampart and room of this hilltop château is as stunning as any in the Perigord Noir.

Endless woodland walks are yours: hike down the forest track to little Carlux. Or set off for the market at Souillac – a short drive – to stock your vaulted kitchen with epicurean delights. Castles abound, including the feudal fortress of Fénelon, 15km, and the beautifully preserved Château de Beynac. Head for mellow-stone Sarlat, tourist capital of the Dordogne (18km), lovely old Domme (20km), and oysters and wine at St Cyprien’s Sunday market.

Return to ginormous medieval fireplaces and gracious 19th-century panelling. Reception rooms combine opulence and charm, and bedroom suites (one in the tower) are extremely spoiling. Towels are monogrammed, carpets are plush, and soaps smell divine.

Reviews

What joy to be able to call one of the historic turreted castles that line the Dordogne 'home' for a week. As majestic and authentically medieval as the architecture is, the bedrooms are very luxurious and newly-refurbished with lots of beautiful details and charming touches. I had an enchanted stay, sleeping in a tower room with stained glass windows overlooking the Dordogne.

Location

The neighbourhood

The château stands high above the Dordogne river, surrounded by 100 acres of mystical forest where wildlife walks abound. Recover in the great cliffside pool, or the wellness centre just below. Ancient Carlux is 3.5km down the hill: a castle, two charming restaurants, a few shops. Cycling, canoeing, riding and paragliding are within a 15-minute drive; glorious food markets and wineries abound.

Introducing

Cassandra & Kirk Owens

Cassandra and Kirk, from California, fell head over heels in love with the château some years ago. Then in poor repair, today it shines. They and their young daughter live in the château for six months of the year. Guests are looked after by Martina and Darren, an English couple who occupy the carriage house just below.
