Le Domaine de Fénelon
Domaine de Fénelon is situated on a hill and is one of our unique prime locations in the Dordogne, with stunning views of the castle of Fénelon and the river Dordogne. Here you will find a historic chapel, three particularly luxurious holiday homes, one of which dates from the 17th Century and a separate guesthouse, which together form a small French hamlet, each with its own privacy.
Le Domaine consists of:
La Métairie de Fénelon (x10 guests) - stylish holiday home with 5 bedrooms and private pool
Le Prieuré de Fénelon (x8 guests) - a luxury villa for 8 people with private pool
- L'Ostalet de Fénelon (x2 guests) - a charming double gîte
- La Petite Maison (x2 guests) - a small guesthouse (optional)
The history depicting the origins of the village of Sainte Mondane is a combination of legend and reality…To this day the construction date of the Presbytery remains uncertain. Archives imply that the construction could be 17th century. Certain authorities have suggested that the Chapel was built in the Roman period, 11th century. During the 1970’s, Jean Rougié, founder of the Rougié factory, renowned worldwide for his Foies Gras, acquired this property by auction. In 2004 he presented this to his son Jacques, who together with his wife decided to undertake an extensive two year renovation project. Today Caroline Rougié and her team welcome lovers of idyllic countryside and traditional stone architecture, in search of a tranquil and luxurious retreat in which to relax and enjoy the exceptional surrounding areas bursting with natural, historic and cultural experiences.
Le Domaine also offers plenty of opportunities for the active guest. Cooking courses are available on request (also for children!) and you can learn how to make a truly French baguette in the local Boulangerie. You can hire bicycles on site to explore the area after you have enjoyed the excellent breakfast service. Take part in a private summer body flexibility class (mix of Tai Chi, Yoga and Pilates), opt for a workout with the private fitness instructor or alternatively book a relaxing and energising massage.
Le Domaine offers all the comforts associated with luxury homes together with a range of first-class services including private catering!

Un écrin de sérénité sur un site exceptionnel !
An incredible week, the most beautiful setting, glorious gardens, fabulous pool. We felt spoilt and relaxed and don't want to go home!
Absolutely fantastic villa collection with flexible configuration for group of family or friends. Incredibly comfortable houses with a central location to explore the Dordogne region. Will definitely be coming back (again).
Beautiful villa in a beautiful location - has everything you need real attention to detail and luxury (I want that BBQ !!!) so much to do as well in immediate area - anyway don't bother coming because I need to book again next year ha ha !!
Exceptionally well appointed accommodation with very comfortable bed/bathrooms that easily coped with our family of 14. The house has a superb kitchen stocked with quality crockery, cutlery, glass ware and all utensils and kitchen equipment. Inside and outside dining facilities were much more than adequate and the pool and surrounds were also excellent. Its difficult to find enough words to describe how superb we found this house. Support received from local staff was excellent.
