    About this property

    This stunning 17th century chateau, found just 80km south of Limoges in picturesque rolling countryside, is the ideal base to explore the beautiful region of the Dordogne.
    The Chateau de la Guerinche is set within 15 acres of spacious grounds, gardens and orchards that open out onto to a lake with private woodland paths that lend themselves to leisurely strolls. The Chateau had been in the same family for over 300 years – the Comtes de Tessyiere military family – and is the epitome of 17th century manor living.
    Now restored, all the rooms in the Chateau de la Guerinche are individually furnished to an exceedingly high standard and are full of authentic French fabrics, antiques and silks.
    Chateau De La Guerinche is a truly magical holiday destination for kids, particularly those with a love for the outdoors, set within 11 acres of mixed woodland that will be sure to excite the imagination and adventurous spirit in kids of all ages.
    Further exploration of the grounds will reveal a number of deer, a fantastic local birdlife, a thriving world of creepy crawlies and a lake with many resident fish. There is also golf, canoeing and horse riding a short distance from the property.

    For those who prefer to stay within the comfort of the chateau there is no shortage of indoor entertainment including table football, badminton, and an extensive movie library for older kids, as well as a dolls house, dress up box and toys for the younger ones.

    The nearest airports are Limoges (60km) and Bergerac (70km) and the nearest town is Thiviers (1km). Thiviers is a sizable traditional market town. It has three supermarkets plus a good range of shops, bars and a great market in the square Wednesdays and Saturdays.
    The N21 runs between Limoges and Perigeux 20 mins south of Thiviers. This is at the centre of the Truffle and Fois Gras region of France at the northern end of the Dordogne. The Chateau is found due East of the Bordeaux Vineyards (45 mins to St.Emillion), North of the Bergerac Wine area and south of the Loire. This is the perfect country for a food and wine tour. The Castles of the Dordogne and fantastic Grottos of Villars are all also in close proximity.
    Popular local activities include tennis, golf, canoeing, cycling, walking, bird watching and nature trails. A beautiful horse race track can be found at the Pompadour just 40 mins to the East. Throughout the spring and early summer months National hunt, eventing and dressage events take place.

    Accommodation

    The chateau is poised on elevated ground overlooking the park and an elegant 12 acre Arboretum. The spacious inter-connecting salons guarantee a lovely temperature in both summer and winter.
    A stone flagged entrance hall that leads up to a Grand Salon with antique furniture opens the chateau. The dining room has a large oak table and easily seats 12. There is also a bureau and petit salon.
    For smaller parties the kitchen can also be used as a dining space and comes with open fire & seating. It is also stocked with 2 dishwashers, 2 fridges, microwave, fitted units and a stone sink. Just off the kitchen is a versatile utility room with a laundry & scullery as well as a pool changing/shower room.
    On the first floor there are four grand double bedroom suites with antique furniture and polished wood floorboards. Each has an en-suite bathroom and is decorated with wallpaper and fabrics.
    On the second floor there are two more twin bedrooms that also have en-suite bathrooms and antique furniture and a couple of bedrooms that are suitable for children or teenagers.
    The beautiful gardens feature an extensive arboretum overlooking a lake so that you may enjoy walks throughout the park. A large private swimming pool (size: 6x12m/depth: 12.m-2.5m, fenced & alarmed) is situated in the middle of the wild flower meadow. On either side of the house there are two dining terraces: one that sits next to the kitchen with a large round table ideal for family lunches in the shade of an ancient box tree with views stretching out across the valley. The other terrace is more formal and accessed from the salons for drinks or a quiet evening meal.
    One high chair and one cot are available free of charge.

    "All very relaxing and peaceful with very good eating,drinking,golfing,walking,villages."

    "Overall, the accommodations were excellent. The rooms and bathrooms were spotless. The lounges and dining areas were well equipped. The swimming pool was a huge relief because we were in France during the middle of the heat wave, with temperatures in the mid-909's."

    "We have recently had our annual trip to Chateau De La Guerinche. We love the chateau and the location. It is something special to wake up to the spectacular views from the bedrooms both in Summer and Winter. The property is well maintained and it’s size makes accommodating a party of 8 - 12 work well. Activity wise great area for cycling, walking and horse riding and for those less active a good book by the pool or sitting on the terrace is hard to beat."

    "Just back from a blissful few days at this gorgeous, authentic chateau in the heart of Perigord. The ancient building is exquisite and so romantic, with a tower, beautiful terraces and gardens, stunning unspoiled views and simple, chic interiors. So calm and peaceful, yet only 5 mins from the nearest town where everything is available. Lovely pool with a shady pergola perfect for an afternoon siesta followed by a glass or two of rose as the sun goes down! The owners have really thought of everything to make their guests comfortable and we are already looking forward to a return visit..."

    "Our holiday at the Chateau was wonderful, the chateau itself was very nice just as you would expect it was been updated but you still felt as if you were back in time in a very grand house. The grounds were exceptional very well kept, the grandchildren loved the swimming pool. The whole house was very accommodating for our four grandchildren and six adults, very spacious as you would expect so we could all have our free space if wanted. Although not within walking distance to the closest village this did not stop us going in the car. Perfect holiday and a lovely way to spend a special birthday."
