Verteillac, Dordogne | Sleeps 10

La Chartreuse

Dordogne/Perigord Chateau with pool - nestled in the peaceful Perigord Vert countryside of the Dordogne region, this splendid 15th century small chateau, known locally as a Chartreuse, has been meticulously renovated and transformed into an elegant and comfortable period property, encircled by a large century-old parkland, just a mile away from the village of La Tour Blanche.

This style of property is unique to the Dordogne and all those remaining are listed. The slate roof of the Pigeonnier was a traditional symbol of wealth, displaying the status of the former occupants; in this case the Mayors of Perigueux. It retains many other original features including stone fireplaces in every room, a bread oven and an outdoor well. Furnished with antiques and period furniture, the generous indoor living space opens onto an equally generous courtyard centred around a century-old lime tree, spreading a lovely scent as you dine al fresco or enjoy your drinks under its shade. The parkland surrounding the property is tended with care and passion; wander among its tall trees, orchard and flower beds to fully appreciate the sense of peace permeating these wonderful grounds.

Many pretty villages and ancient towns dot this verdant corner of the Dordogne crisscrossed by numerous rivers and streams. A number of beach resorts with snack bars and canoe-hire facilities have developed along the banks of the river Dronne, such as Lisle. Boat trips are highly recommended in Brantome, also known as the Venice of Perigord, strategically situated on the ancient pilgrim route towards Santiago de Compostela. Similarly, along the same route and within twenty miles of La Chartreuse sits Perigueux, the capital city of the Perigord region, with so much to offer to visitors of all ages; a Gallo-Roman museum, an amphitheatre, weekly markets, medieval houses, the stunning 12th-century cathedral of St Font, lovely promenades along the river banks. Just some of the reasons to visit Perigueux during your stay at this impressive Dordogne Chateau.

The Local View

If only walls could talk, what a story could be told of the history of this 15th century chartreuse. You would follow the generations through history as this house has only been sold three times. Set in the peaceful countryside of Perigord Vert area of the Dordogne, you can chill out and relax. There are so many picturesque villages, chateaux perched on cliff tops, the wonderful rivers of the region to explore. There are markets to sample the local produce, not to mention the cafes and restaurants to taste these different ingredients prepared into meals to savour and remember for a  long time.
