Description from manager

Owner's description:

This magnificent Chateau lies in the Perigord region of the Dordogne. Originally built in 1840 and recently refurbished to the highest standards, the chateau features antique furnishings, original artworks and designer décor making it the epitome of luxury.

This estate sleeps 43 guests in total: 33 in the main Chateau and adjacent annexe and a further 10 in the gite, which is located within the grounds of Chateau Le Duc. Twelve acres of beautifully maintained gardens, which feature mature fruit orchards, a swimming pool and a badminton court, are yours to enjoy. Meals can be taken either on the terrace, which boasts a lovely view of the Perigord and the Dordogne, or in the chateau’s dining room.

The main chateau boasts 8 bedrooms and bathrooms, 5 of which are en suite. There is also a large drawing room, dining room, a snooker room, a modern well equipped kitchen, an office, a library and a separate television room. There are a further 8 bedrooms in the adjacent annexe whilst the gite features 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, ideal for a family.

An historic landmark in French history, the chateau was once the palatial home of a duke who served under Napoleon and it was given to him as a token of his appreciation for his dedication to France. His influence on French history is evident in the numerous statues and landmarks named after him in France.

Good news! For a little extra, this property can be booked as a Vill’otelYey! Wait… what is that?

It’s the perfect combo of the privacy of your own personal villa, with all the luxury and convenience of a hotel. What can be arranged?

Breakfast, cleaning, welcome drinks and hamper, plus more! Check the 'Extras' tab for all the details.

Within 15 minutes of the chateau there is a lake (with beach sand) for fishing, water skiing and canoeing. There are also local tennis courts and horse riding facilities. Within walking distance of the chateau (1.5km) one can find 2 bakeries, a butcher, a supermarket and there's an outdoor market once a week in the village. A new golf course is only 10 minutes by car.

Wine tastings can be held at the château. There are large supermarkets in St Yrieux. Within 15 minutes there are several excellent restaurants. Bergerac is 128km from the chateau.

The closest airports are Limoges (50 minutes), Bergerac (90 minutes) and Bordeaux (2 hours). There are good train connection from Paris to Limoges (3 hours).

Follow the footsteps of Napoleon when you host your romantic wedding at Chateau Le Duc, north of the Dordogne. 

Wander past the sweet-scented summer lavender towards the barn for an intimate ceremony or step into a beautifully decorated marquee for a grander occasion.  The historic ambience at this 19th century estate and its 12 acres of glorious grounds makes this the perfect setting for a country wedding in this land of impressive chateaux and fine Périgordian cuisine.

Wedding Reception

With hire of a marquee, a reception for up to 120 guests can take place in the grounds of the chateau.  Inside up to 30 guests can be seated for a more intimate reception.

Dancing can take place in a marquee on the grounds with music lowered at midnight but no final music restriction – so as late as you like.

The ceremony can also take place in a hired marquee on the grounds with up to 120 people or inside the barn on site for up to 80 people.

The owners can provide the details for an English-speaking celebrant.
