This magical 18th century château and its 38 hectare domaine is situated in the sought-after Dordogne ‘Valley of the Five Castles’ area, 20 minutes from Sarlat.

The domaine commands superb views across the Céou Valley and is surrounded by beautiful untouched woodland; it offers complete privacy and tranquillity, despite being only a short drive to nearby shops and restaurants at Castelnaud, Saint Cybranet, Beynac, Roque-Gageac, and Sarlat.
The property consists of the château offering 9 bedrooms, a charming and characterful 3-bedroom guest house with 15th century origins, a studio apartment, a caretaker's house, outbuildings and a dovecote. The ensemble is completed with an infinity swimming pool and tennis court. The grounds include meadows and woodland, an orchard and a maze. The property also benefits from its own natural spring.
The château boasts a symmetric layout and nicely proportioned rooms. Its classic entrance hall greets you with its stone floors, and a stunning stone staircase with sculpted ironwork that serves all floors. The entrance opens on to the elegant salon on one side and the beautiful dining room on the other. The salon has parquet flooring, painted wood panelling, a fireplace, traditional French stretched fabric wall coverings, and has beautiful light due to the multiple double aspect windows. This leads to the large study with stone floors, a stone fireplace and wall to ceiling built-in bookshelves. The dining room also has parquet flooring, wood panelling and built-in glass cabinets. It leads through to the fully equipped kitchen and pantry area, and through to the boot room with a vaulted ceiling. This opens into a large games room, also with a vaulted ceiling and a stone fireplace, that originally served as the kitchen.
On the first floor there are four very light and spacious main bedrooms, all with fireplaces, one with a sink, and another with a shower-room. There are also two smaller bedrooms, and two family bathrooms. The second floor has three bedrooms, two with sink and bidet, as well as a family bathroom, and two unrenovated bedrooms, one with its own bathroom that has potential as a stunning penthouse room.
The recently fully renovated guest house is entered by steps up to a terrace with a pisé (small set stone) floor with fantastic views over the valley. This leads in to the very large and light living room with windows on all sides, parquet floor, and a large stone fireplace. This opens to the contemporary style kitchen, and entrance hall which accesses the first floor with two bedrooms and a family bathroom, and down to the garden level with the third bedroom and bathroom.

The grandiose former stables with a beautiful high vaulted ceiling throughout the ground floor has been partially converted in to an apartment at one end, with a large main room, and a kitchenette and bathroom, The rest of the building also has further potential for conversion.
The caretaker's house has a kitchen, living room, WC and a large workshop area on the ground floor, and three bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor.

 Facing the château there is an ensemble of attractive stone outbuildings in a U-shape which were formerly used for wine-making and include a large vaulted wine cellar. There is also a small stable that currently houses the three live-in donkeys.
The pool area is secluded from the rest of the buildings and offers an infinity pool with beautiful views over the valley, a large terrace for sun-bathing, and small outbuildings that serve as a pool house, and one of which houses a bread oven.
The land consists of gardens around the château, meadows, and woodland.
This is an exceptional and rare opportunity to acquire one of the most beautiful domaines in the Dordogne, in a magical location, with magnificent views over unspoilt countryside in a UNESCO classified area. The domaine has retained its charm and authenticity and offers a true château living experience for its future owners.
