This stunning 17th century chateau, found just 80km south of Limoges in picturesque rolling countryside, is the ideal base to explore the beautiful Dordogne.

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

The chateau is poised on elevated ground overlooking the park and an elegant 12 acre Arboretum.

You enter the chateau via the stone flagged entrance hall that leads to the Grand Salon, which has been tastefully decorated with antique furniture. Interconnecting doors join this room with the Petit Salon, guaranteeing a lovely temperature in both summer and winter. There is also a billiard room close by, which links to both the Bureau and the Petit Salon.

The spacious dining room has a large oak table and easily seats 12. For smaller parties the kitchen can also be used as a dining space and comes with an 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.

Sleeping Accommodation

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 the lake, perfect for picturesque walks throughout the park. A large private swimming pool (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.

Services and Catering

The chateau is rented on a self-catering basis, but there is a resident cook/housekeeper who lives in her own house on the estate who can provide meals for you if you wish.

Fresh linen is provided and twice weekly cleaning is included in the price. Further assistance such as baby sitting and evening meals can be provided at additional charge locally.
