This beautiful estate, with several holiday homes and an old Château, is one of our unique primelocations in the Dordogne and accommodates up to 36 people. The estate is surrounded by 16 hectares of unspoilt grounds and woodlands, part of which is believed to be the last natural truffle estate in the Dordogne.
Several gîtes, and even a small 17 th century chapel, surround a charming courtyard. The history of this estate stretches back to the 14 th century when the Château functioned as a fortified farmhouse. This is recognisable, even today, by the arrow slots in the romantic tower bedroom of the Château.
The Château is the main building on the estate, with space to sleep 17 people. Through the hall you enter the majestic salon (10.5 m x 7.5 m) with natural stone walls. A place where you can relax in comfortable seats around an imposing fireplace. From the living room there is access to an elevated terrace, with a beautiful view of the entire domain. In the same part of the house you will find the stylish dining room. This dining room is connected to a complete kitchen-diner. This kitchen is equipped with all necessary facilities, a large antique dining table and a large monumental fireplace. There are open doors to another elevated terrace with dining tables and chairs overlooking the beautiful courtyard.
The other five holiday homes on the property offer accommodation for a further 19 guests. Each of these holiday homes has its own character.
La Forge is an independent, and centuries-old, part of the Château with a private walled garden and can accommodate 5 adults, or 4 adults and 2 small children.
