Have a grand wedding or family reunion in this masterfully restored chateau in the Dordogne, where the new meets the (very) old. Parts of the castle date back as far as the 5th century, but inside you’ll find both modern fixtures and family antiques. Perched on top of a rock overlooking unspoilt French countryside, you'll feel just like royalty. For a taste of the local character, descend to take a long stroll through the gardens to the nearby village of Lamonzie-Montastruc.
Up to 20 guests can reside in this sprawling, 900 sq metre chateau. Have a high style dinner party together inside the grand banquet hall, or spread out among the 15 hectare park to dine al fresco or lounge by the pool under the French sunshine. Spectacular architectural details abound: like the moat, the turrets, and the 18th Century pigeonnier overlooking the private pool.
This holiday chateau is easily reachable from Bergerac (11 km), the heart of the Dordogne region. There you can shop, dine, or learn about the region's winemaking at the Musee du Vins. Then set off on a tour; dozens of wineries are nestled between Bergerac and your chateau. Pick up many bottles - here you've so much to celebrate!

The château offers an exceptional setting for weddings and events. The total number in residence remains limited to 20, however all events can be set outside in the « cour d’honneur » and in the upper courtyard where 100 to 200 people can fit easily, while dinner can be served under marquees in the upper courtyard for 80 to 100 guests. A dance floor can be installed as well under the marquees.
Starting mid-2016, the 18th century vaulted « grandes cuisines » will be as well in the château basements for your events.
Please note that for all events of more than 30 guests, hence requiring marquees and special arrangement, we require the services of a wedding planner to coordinate all details.
Another formula can be offered in collaboration with a neighbouring château presenting the option to use a combination of the 2 mansions in the same village, for both lodging and event, without the addition of marquees. Details can be communicated on demand.
