Summary

Magnificent 16th Century Dordogne chateau with stunning views over the River Isle valley. A swimming pool, 40 acres of gorgeous grounds and a billiard room enhance your stay. Sleeps 7-12.

Description

The elegant and imposing mid-16th Century Chateau de Sioraque is situated in 40 acres of private grounds and boasts excellent views over the Isle River valley. Six lavishly decorated bedrooms and six bathrooms are available for exclusive hire. A swimming pool fitted with a child security alarm is also available for private use.

The Chateau de Sioraque features stunning interior decoration, including mosaics, detailed plasterwork, parquets, stone-flagged floors, and high ceilings with magnificent exposed oak beams. Many of the rooms are covered in wood paneling, while an enormous 17th century fireplace forms the centrepiece of the dining room. Beupoil family wallpaper still hangs in the living room.

The Chateau de Sioraque is located on a hilltop village between the two towns of ‘La Roche’ and ‘Gravelle’, and overlooks the River Isle and the woods of Antoniac. The architecture of other buildings in the village bear a remarkable similarity to the chateau; this is because the family who once owned the chateau also owned the village and rewarded the local farmers with housing and food in return for their labours in the fields.
