Château de Rouffillac
Enjoy a holiday in an 17th century castle in the Dordogne, with all the comforts and luxury you could wish for. The stately Château de Rouffillac is such a castle, with thick walls and romantic turrets, where time has stood still, it seems. This, together with the magnificent castle garden, the sublime view of the Dordogne river and the peaceful location, makes this castle the perfect place for an unforgettable holiday in the Dordogne!
The special holiday feeling starts when you turn onto the drive. A long private road that slowly leads up the hill towards the castle. The anticipation increases...
As soon as you come in you can feel the special atmosphere and it is hard to imagine that this will be your holiday home for the coming period. In the previous century, the French professor and zoologist Pierre-Paul Grassé was the owner of Château de Rouffillac. Here he found peace and quiet to write his famous encyclopaedia. Nowadays his daughter looks after the guests and the castle, which has room for 16-18 people and has been restored with an eye for all the details. Everything is perfect, from the floors to the ceilings, from the furniture to the upholstery, from the cellar vaults to the roof trusses. The carefully selected traditional interior and the impressive architecture of this castle take you back to the time of the French Renaissance. However, modern comforts are also present. The castle has six bathrooms, four toilets, a spacious and fully equipped kitchen, a garage and a swimming pool. It is even possible to reach the castle by helicopter. Naturally, there is also plenty of privacy and appropriate security. The courtyard, where you will find a large table to enjoy your meals together outside, is fenced and can be locked. Ideal if you are travelling with small children or dogs.
Make sure you bring princess dresses and wooden swords for your children; they will never forget this castle.
Additional services such as cleaning, concierge and a professional chef are available on request so you can fully relax and enjoy your family holiday. And you will definitely enjoy yourself! Explore the castle’s height and the stunning views from its towers, take a dip in the private swimming pool (with handy shallow area for children) or walk to the banks of the Dordogne river in just a few minutes to go canoeing or cycling or simply take a walk along the private hiking paths.
