The
Experience

Outside a perfect bastide village, here is château B&B run with warmth and energy. Stéphane cooks brilliantly and loves wine; Florence is enormous fun, a breath of fresh air. Restful, light-filled, traditional bedrooms have white bathrooms. An infinity pool overlooks the lake below, above it perches the rustic-modern treehouse, its balcony gazing over meadows and cows, its mother tree thrusting two branches through the floor. Solar-lit paths lead you down through the trees at night, a breakfast basket is winched up in the morning. Later… play badminton, fish in the lake, spin off on a bike, bask in the hot tub.

Reviews

We had such a wonderful holiday at the Chateau and were able to enjoy a few days stay in treehouse. Stephane and Florence are such friendly and accommodating hosts who made our stay so special. The location is beautiful and the atmosphere so relaxing that we were sad to leave We will definitely be back.

I stumbled on this wonderful chateau while my husband was in hospital in Bergerac. Stephane and Florence were so welcoming to this waif and stray sans mari and just as welcoming when said mari managed to escape from the Centre Hospitalier and join me at this oasis of calm and peace that is Chateau Gauthie. Breakfast was a feast and one night Stephane cooked supper for all the guests which was as delicious as it was fun. The surrounding area is beautiful and there are bikes for those who want to work off some of the extra pounds gained thanks to Stephane et Florence! A fabulous stay.

Janie

A lovely peaceful retreat in the Dordogne countryside, but with lots to do on site, if you wish. The pool and hot tub were most welcome to aid the relaxation. Our hosts, Florence and Stephane were very welcoming and the room and breakfasts delightful. Hoping to return in the future, but next time with rod and line, as there is a most inviting fishing lake within the grounds

Peter

What a superb find!! Located in extensive gardens equipped with hot- tub, pool, lake and tree-houses, the chateau boasts charming bedrooms. The hosts are very relaxed and we immediately felt at home. We will definitely be returning. A Bientot

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Florence & Stéphane Desmette

  • The neighbouring medieval ISSIGEAC village with its popular SUNDAY MARKET is the focus of a unique combination of landscape variety. Woodland splashed hills and rolling Bergerac VINEYARDS are dotted with exquisite VILLAGES and stunning CASTLES.
  • BERGERAC, MONPAZIER, BIRON, MONBAZILLAC, BRIDOIRE, VILLEREAL, BEAUMONT, SAINT-AVIT-SENIEUR, CADOUIN : already many sites for a few days. For a longer stay, we recommand SARLAT, BEYNAC, LIMEUIL, MARQUEYSSAC, PERIGUEUX among many more lovely places
  • GOLF course (30' drive away) TENNIS (5'), HORSE RIDING (5') CANOEING or sailing on a 'gabarre'-flat bottom boat on the Dordogne river (30'), BOWLING in Bergerac, TREE TOP ADVENTURE park (40')
  • Swimming-pool and Hob Tub, Badminton, Croquet, PingPong, Pétanque (French bowls), Fishing in the Lake (fishing tackle provided), Walking on the surrounding country paths (17loops arround Issigeac), cycling through picturesque vistas (bikes to borrow).
  • GARDEN and NATURE : the romantic grounds, fringed by roses and flower beds, expand through old boxwood, oak, ash, field mapple. trees and some rare species. Both dry and wet grassland display contrasted sceneries, favoring wild life. A birds' paradise...
