Weekly price guide: £2981-£3794
Property Ref: CHA2342
A six bedroom chateau that sleeps ten guests, found in 24 hectares of arcadian rural woodland that makes up part of the forested valley that extends on its southern boundary to the middle of the Beune River. In the cliff face to the east of the Chateau is a huge, troglodyte Pigeonnier (a sort of dovecote) which is currently gated and inaccessible to the public. Further up the valley is the location of the Venus de Laussel, a limestone carving of a woman that dates back some 25,000 years. It's a great place to visit and, as you'd expect, is classified as an artefact of no little historical significance! On the western boundary of the site is the Abri du Cap Blanc, which contains notable Magdalenian friezes and is open to the public. As the site is set on a hillside which terminates in a steep vertical drop into the valley, the stunning terraces and gardens occur on a series of delightful levels. Outside the wall of the Chateau's courtyard there is a large, formal parterre garden with shady seating areas for relaxing and truly appreciating the delicious local wines! At a lower level and adjacent to the C17th chapel, is the 11x11m D-shaped swimming pool, which is protected by an audible security system.

|Bathrooms:||Please be aware that due to the challenges posed by renovating a genuine 13th century medieval castle, the ensuite bathrooms are relatively small and do not have a full shower - they do, however, have a removable tap/hose combo on the sinks that can be used as a very basic shower, thanks to these rooms being fully tiled and waterproofed. This small drawback is somewhat mitigated by the beautiful master bathroom that comes complete with a big jacuzzi!|
