Bergerac chateau / country house description
The spectacular Chateau de Cardou is located in the wooded hills of the Dordogne valley and boasts breathtaking scenery and its own private swimming pool. With 300m2 of space it can comfortably sleep 10 guests and has to be seen to be truly appreciated!
Steeped in history, with its foundations dating back to the 13th Century, the Chateau de Cardou is listed by the “Historical Residences of Character.” It has had several rebuilds; most dramatically in the 15th century as military architecture evolved in line with the development of armaments at this time; but also later in the 18th and 19th centuries, which have contributed to its unique charm and character.
The Chateau de Cardou has been part of the existing owners’ family for 271 years and was originally a wedding present from Joseph de Beaudet and his wife Catherine de Montalembert to their daughter Suzanne de Beaudet when she married Etienne-Jacques of Saint-Exupery in 1734. The owners restored one of the original wings in 2001 and this is the part of the chateau available for hire.
You enter the chateau to the spacious entrance hall and adjoining main staircase. The furnished living room has sofas, armchairs, table, TV, VCR and home stereo. The large dining room has a beautiful arched ceiling and contains rustic chairs, an armchair and settee, a dresser and a working fireplace. The kitchen comes with two separate cooking surfaces, microwave, oven, pressure cooker, spit-roast, fridge, dishwasher and all the usual kitchen utensils. There is also a downstairs shower room with lavatory. The chateau also includes a telephone, iron and ironing board, washing machine and tumble dryer, clothes line, hair drier, vacuum cleaner and WIFI internet access.
On the first floor (in the XVth century tower) is the master bedroom with double bed, table and chairs, cupboard, armchair and fireplace. The en suite bathroom comes with bath, shower, basins and WC. Also on this floor are 3 twins (all with en suite bathrooms) and an additional double with a shower room.
Outside there is a fenced private swimming pool (12x6m), a helipad, a very large dining terrace, plenty of garden furniture and lots of parking spaces.
