  • Surface 740 m2
  • Rooms 4 
  • Bedrooms 6 
  • Land 18 ha

A 16th century castle, its outbuildings, stables and all of its furniture, with 18 hectares dominating the Isle Valley on the outskirts of Périgueux.
In the midst of the Périgord region with its “1,001 castles”, just a stone’s throw from Périgueux, a town of art and history, renowned for its famous colourful, fragrant markets.
An ideal starting point when visiting the mecca of cultural and great outdoor tourism, and following a gastronomical tour of the land of good restaurants. Here, local products abound such as Périgueux’s famous pâté with truffles, farm chickens, chestnuts, wild mushrooms such as ceps, walnuts and strawberries, with flavours continuously renewed all through the summer, as well as apples, peaches and all the other fruits grown on the hillside.
Sarlat, Lascaux and Les-Eyzies are less than 80 km away; the area around Bergerac with its “bastides” or fortified towns is less than 50 km away; Brantôme, on the edge of the Périgord-Limousin National Regional Park, is 30 km away. Whether by train or via the A89 motorway, Bordeaux is but 1¼ hours away. Nearby, a market town set out around its impressive bell-tower, bearing witness to a rich past, has all shops and amenities.
This castle is in an area where wooded hills alternate with green valleys. Perched on a knoll, it dominates a plain which stretches out in front of it, sloping down to the peaceful river Isle. 18 hectares of beautiful, predominantly wooded, natural surroundings border the property and extend over the heights providing an ideal setting for walks. Numerous trails will delight horse-riders, especially as their mounts can then rest in suitable stables, standing at the end of a bridle path.
This castle was built in the 16th century on old wine storehouses and then raised a level in the 19th century so that staff could be accommodated on site. Now perfectly restored with great attention paid to its authenticity, robust and flanked by its two impressive round towers, it exudes a proud bearing. By its sides, a house and a barn, currently undergoing restoration works, provide a surface area of approx. 300 m² to be developed. The buildings are bordered by a wide terrace, protected by stone baluster railings, which dominates a second terrace, taken up by a vegetable garden, and a secondary road leading to Périgueux, passing by on a lower level.
The castleThis castle is accessed via a double-sided, straight stairway, the steps of which form a porch at the top. The entrance door is flanked by two pilasters topped with capitals, engraved with 1550 and 1857, the castle’s two construction dates. Above, two balconies enhance the two floors of the main residence.
Apart from the second floor, converted in a more contemporary style but with the same level of home comfort as the rest, the interiors abound with period furniture and decor including tables, dressers, monumental fireplaces, French ceilings, herringbone pattern parquet flooring, panelling and old wallcoverings as well as mosaic floors.
Cellar
Previously used as a wine storehouse, the cellars can be reached via a vaulted passageway concealed under the porch.
Ground floor
The reception rooms are a masterpiece of refinement. They begin with a central vestibule, the floor of which is covered with mosaic tiles, adorned with geometric motifs. The walls are lined with floor-to-ceiling panelling. Two passageways covered with wooden panels open a long, transverse perspective, ending with two monumental fireplaces, a refined one in the lounge and a Renaissance style one, sculpted with capitals, motifs and coats-of-arms, in the dining room. The first room is a vast, bright lounge, with an outstanding French ceiling, the joists of which are covered with strips of highly wrought leather, representing fleur-de-lis. Carved cherubs are at the ends of each main beam. …
