Description

Set in the heart of a beautiful market town, yet entirely contained within private and quiet walled gardens, this petit chateau offers something for all ages, including a large, 14 metre pool. With four spacious bedrooms, and plenty of room for the family to relax, the chateau can accommodate up to 8 guests in pure luxury.

Astier Petit Chateau

This beautiful chateau has been sympathetically decorated to enhance many of the buildings original features. The large windows allow light to flood the rooms, while the traditional French shutters provide shade of particularly hot days.

On the ground floor you will find a large and well equipped kitchen/breakfast room which opens directly to the terrace and pool area. It is easy to throw open these doors in a morning and enjoy your croissants in the beautiful and serene surroundings.

The drawing room has a magnificent stone fire place and is ideal for winter parties. There are few better places to be on a cool evening than nestled around an open fire.

The spacious bedrooms provide plenty of room to relax and unwind. There are two large double rooms, both with en suite bathrooms, and two large twin bedrooms which share a beautifully decorated family bathroom.

The chateau also has a DVD room with flat screen TV, which may be converted into a third double bedroom using a sofa bed if required.

Outside

The property opens onto beautiful mature walled gardens with electric gates at both ends and parking for up to four cars. Guests are welcome to help themselves to any seasonal fruits from the trees, including cherries, apples, grapes, peaches, apricots, pears and figs.

The pool area is fenced with a child secure gate. There are several dining and seating areas around the garden and swings, a trampoline, slide and Wendy house to help occupy our younger guests. All amenities and restaurants are just a short walk from the garden, including a tennis court.

Area description

Astier Petit Chateau is situated in the heart of a lovely market town that plays host to several events during the year including night markets and local antiques brocants. Every Thursday morning a large French market comes to the town changing the atmosphere from a tranquil haven to a vivacious colourful scene full of delights from the local region. Step out of the house and choose your own seasonal vegetables, foie gras, local cheeses, olives, breads and much more.

There are several restaurants, bars and bakeries within walking distance, and the River L'Isle, which feeds into the Dordogne, can be found just a short distance from the chateau. Facials, beauty treatments, canoeing, tennis and mini golf are also only a short walk away. Alternatively, there are many lovely walks from the house up into the surrounding hills.
