Dordogne exclusive chateau for rent - Set in the wooded hills of the Dordogne valley, within a large private estate dating back to the 13th century, this aristocratic residence is just a few minutes' drive from the quaint market villages of Lalinde and Beaumont-du-Perigord. Both offer attractive cafes, shops and restaurants, with the additional advantage of being well placed to reach the Dordogne river for many outdoor pursuits.
Steeped in history, Chateau de Cardoux has been within the same family for the last three centuries and is now listed among the Historical Residences of Character. The interior is elegant yet sober, with French period furniture, vaulted ceilings, open fireplaces and thick stone walls exuding charm throughout. The extensive parkland that surrounds the property comprises large lawned areas as well as many walking and cycling trails through the woods: what better way to familiarise yourself with the domain!
This tranquil rural area of the Dordogne is perfect for walking, cycling and for a range of outdoor water sports such as canoeing and swimming in the Dordogne river. As you leave this stunning property, you will find yourself surrounded by a beautiful and inspiring landscape dotted with vineyards, elegant chateaux, ornamental gardens and picturesque villages with much to offer their visitors. Some of the most remarkable bastide towns in France can be found in this area including Monpazier, Domme, Villefranche and Beaumont, not to mention the pretty villages of La Roque Gageac and Limeuil. Within 18 miles of the chateau is the town of Bergerac and its convenient airport connecting the UK with this beautiful region of South West France.
“There is elegance and charm about this chateau situated in a particularly beautiful part of the Dordogne. Close to the market town of Lalinde, with its restaurants and the Dordogne river, this is a perfect location for a family holiday with so much to see and do. Too many good restaurants to mention in this region and vineyards; there is also something for children and teens as well. Canoeing, grottos, caves and the wonderful Insectopia!”
