At first, there are the seashores. The endless sand beaches formed by the powerful waves of the Atlantic Ocean or those, so much calmer of the Arcachon Bay. And then, hectares of pine trees forests that precede the vineyards that made Bordeaux the prestigious symbol of the French wine making. Some forty kilometers from the city, vineyards fields run towards the horizon, covering all the hills and mounds that have been shaped by the silver rivers. One of those, the Dordogne, passes under a very ancient castle.Learn more
A construction that has been built under the reign of the Sun King, set on a vast domain only limited by the bright views over the countryside. Straight alleys cross green squares of lawns where hundred years old trees have taken roots, the alleys run along a large pool bordered by two essentials commodities: a terrace that lies under permanent sunshine and an outdoor Jacuzzi that can welcome up to 6 people. From here, one can see the Dordogne lying beneath the majestic mansion; the old stones of her proud facade remind one that it is without doubt a 17th Century building.
A plunge into the past that goes deeper at some places, as soon one is inside the castle.
Bright and large rooms, because of the high ceilings the rooms even look larger; imperious, they harbor magnificent ancient furniture all of which privileges noble material and precious fabric. A distinguished style from former times, a style that is underlined by a superb ancient fireplace that has been built inside a stonewall. A style that is also contradicted by much more modern influences; bright colors appearing here and they are creating discreetly a more contemporary atmosphere.
Sophisticated, elegant, the bedrooms display each their own character. With a surface between 25m2 and 80m2, they all benefit from an adjacent private bathroom, and sometimes from floorboards, a private fire place or four poster beds, and even for some of the suites, from a private terrace.
Most of them offer a view over the Dordogne that runs through landscapes that haven’t change for a very long time. The name of the villages scattered around sound magical: Saint-Emilion, Barsac, Blaye and many more.
