Description from manager

Owner's description:

In a pretty countryside setting, just a short drive from the beautiful market town of Bergerac, Châteauthis property is a wonderful place for family holidays, celebrations or a reunion of friends. Relax in glorious surroundings and be brilliantly near world-famous vineyards and fine local cuisine.

Set in stunning private grounds, the château features a good-sized swimming pool and picturesque gardens. Kid will love exploring the woodland or perhaps having a game of pool in the games room. Inside, guests will be made to feel welcome in authentic and traditional surroundings with rustic furnishings and charming style, creating a warm and characterful ambience. The classic reception and dining rooms provide room for rest and relaxation whilst ten bedrooms over the first and second floors allow ample space whether you are spending quality time with extended family or old friends.

The delightful owners, who discreetly live in their own cottage in the grounds, are wonderful hosts who can prepare hearty four-course meals on request. Of course, Bergerac is only 6km away where you can explore the historic lanes, visit the famous Maisons de Vins and dine in some excellent restaurants. Wine-lovers can visit some of the local vineyards and châteaux whilst further afield you can head to the wine-town of Saint-Émilion or the wineries around Bordeaux.

The area is famed also for its archaic historical sites and is within easy reach of all the famous 'Perigord' tourist attractions including some of the region’s most charming villages along the Dordogne river. Not to mention canoeing, walking, cycling and golf nearby. This really is relaxing Dordogne at its very best.

Châteauthis property is in the local commune of Ginestet, a predominately wine and agricultural area. It’s just a short drive from the historic market town of Bergerac (6km), making it an ideal location for exploring this region of Dordogne.

Local activities across the region include walking, cycling, fishing, golf, horse-riding, canoeing, tennis whilst there is also go-karting near Bergerac and tree-top activities in the forests north of the Dordogne.

One of the best activities if of course wine-tasting in some of Bergerac’s finest vineyards. Wine-lovers should also head further afield towards the wine-town of Saint-Émilion (70km) or the wineries around Bordeaux around ninety minutes away.

Beautiful Bergerac is a fantastic town to explore with its historic architecture, charming shops and Maisons des Vins. Visit on a Wednesday and Saturday morning to experience the atmospheric food market and buy plenty of local produce to enjoy back at your château. Other great markets nearby include Eymet (33km) on a Thursday morning, lovely Issigeac (25km) on a Sunday morning and another Saturday morning market in Sainte-Foy-la-Grande (26km).

Other highlights of the Dordogne include two of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’, Monpazier and Monflaquin as well as stunning riverside spots along the Dordogne such as Domme, Beynac-et-Cazenac and La Roque-Gageac.

For more fantastic markets, beautiful architecture and amazing restaurants, both Périgueux  (50km) and Sarlat-la-Canéda (80km) are worthy day trips, as are the fascinating Lascaux Caves (105km), a UNESC World Heritage site just over an hour away.

The chateau has 10 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 6 WCs and can host 20 people in great comfort. On the ground floor there is a small kitchen with all the necessary appliances, a living room with a fireplace and seating for 17 and a dining room. Activities on offer in the chateau include snooker table, a tuned piano, Wi-Fi access, Livebox, Satellite TV with English channels and table tennis.

Of the 10 bedrooms, 5 are doubles and 5 are twins, most of which are on the castle’s first floor and some on the second floor (there are no bedrooms on the ground floor). There are four classic bathrooms as well. The chateau has central heating, and all bed linen and towels are provided.


The large park to the rear of the manor offers space aplenty for outdoor games, and a BBQ area. Dining outside in the garden is a must as is taking a dip in the private swimming pool (with alarm system properly certified).
