Rent Chateau Princess Dordogne

Chateau/Castle, Luxury Villas
| 8 Bedrooms|

Rental Description

Just a 20-minute drive from the banks of the Dordogne, stay at this charming French château with glorious countryside views from its vast garden and heated swimming pool.
The fairy-tale turrets of Château Princesse will enchant you, as will the characterful ambience across its traditional yet welcoming interiors. As well as a delightful country kitchen on the ground floor, guests can relax and dine in the comfortable living-dining room on the first floor with doors leading out to the pretty castle terrace. Across the upper floors, find eight bedrooms and four rounded bathrooms – the château sleeps a maximum of sixteen guests in July and August or up to eight guests during other months.
There seems to be so much space outside for dining al-fresco by the barbecue and making the most of the heated swimming pool which is covered by a glass roof (except July and August when it is fully opened in the height of the summer sunshine). The countryside views of hills and woodland are beautiful and it is such a relaxing setting.
Savour the wonderful cuisine of the Périgord Noir at the bustling market in the historic town of Brive-la-Gaillarde or venture a little further to experience the gastronomy of Sarlat-la-Canéda, reached within an hour. Another spectacular destination just 33km away is Rocamadour with its amazing cliffside setting and, slightly closer, the fascinating and iconic caves at Gouffre de Padirac.
Enjoy riverside picnics by the Dordogne, look out for seasonal kayaking and canoeing opportunities or join locals at idyllic river swimming spots. Gorgeous villages are scattered nearby such as Curemonte, Loubressac and Carennac, all three classified as ‘Plus Beaux Villages’, and spend time in nearby Martel with its markets, historic towers and half-timbered houses down pretty lanes. Take a trip on Martel’s heritage railway, a superb way to appreciate the captivating scenery of this part of south-western France.

15km from Brive-Souillac Airport, situated in the Lot department of France and only a 20-minute drive from the Dordogne River, Château Princesse is perfectly located for exploring this beautiful region of south-western France.
The château is in a rural setting with gorgeous views and just a couple of neighbouring properties. Le Vignon-en-Quercy is 4km away with a boulangerie, supermarket, restaurant (open for lunch), small train station and other amenities. Furthermore, a traditional French auberge can be found in a charming little village also 4km away. The attractive town of Brive-la-Gaillarde (20km) is home to a wider range of restaurants, shops and a wonderful market three mornings a week.
The picturesque town of Martel (12km) is also easily reached, classified as ‘a town of art and history’ thanks to its medieval past with historic towers, half-timbered houses and charming lanes. Combine your visit with the twice-weekly market and take a ride on Martel’s scenic railway where you can admire the countryside scenery in open-sided carriages lead by a steam or diesel locomotive.
Slightly further south, by the banks of the Dordogne, Carennac (18km) is one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ and is a delight to explore with its 15th century stone houses and 16th century castle. A little further west along the river are seasonal canoeing and kayaking opportunities as well as idyllic spots for lakeside picnics and summer river swimming near Mézels, Floirac, Gluges and beyond.
Crossing over to the Correze department, Curemonte (14km) is a picture-perfect village with glorious valley views, home to three 15th to 16th century castles and a Wednesday evening night market in the height of the summer. Back in the Lot, Loubressac (28km) is another one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ and worthy of a visit for its historic charm and wonderful vistas.
You are also well located for spending the day in Rocamadour (33km), one of France’s most popular destinations with its incredible cliffside setting, religious buildings, pilgrim’s staircase and imposing château. Another great trip out are the fascinating caves at Gouffre de Padirac (28km) which you can tour on foot or by boat.
Elsewhere in the Dordogne, visit iconic riverside villages such as Domme, La Roque-Gageac and Beynac-et-Cazena, all around an hour away by car, whilst gastronomes and history lovers alike should spend the day in Sarlat-la-Canéda (50km) with its exquisite architecture, fine restaurants and atmospheric markets showcasing the best produce of the Périgord Noir.
Keen golfers note that Golf Puy d’Arnac and Résidence Souillac Golf & Country Club are both around a 25-minute drive away as well as a course near Brive-la-Gaillarde.
