Bergerac chateau / country house description
This Perigordian Chateau brims with the charm and nobility of its gracious 400 years of existence. The original features include a panelled dining room that was installed by the same artisan that completed many of the rooms at Versailles. The house is brimming with antiques, but maintains an atmosphere of a comfortable family home. Bardoulye sleeps 14 in 7 spacious bedrooms: five in the main house and two in the neighbouring guest house ‘Le Pigeonnier’. Enjoy absolute privacy in this meticulously maintained property set in 32 acres of gardens, woodlands, and tended grounds. Within the estate are a private pool and a tennis court. Table tennis is provided as well as immaculate grassy areas ideal for croquet and badminton. There are several lovely paths for walking within the estate.
The Chateau de Bardoulye is situated between the small market towns of Eymet and Issigeac and is easily accessible by air from the Bergerac airport or by train from Paris to Libourne. The area surrounding the house provides a plethora of activities including horse-back riding, canoeing, fishing and boat rides on the Dordogne river – all of which we are happy to organise for you. Many historic chateaux are a short drive from the house. First class wineries abound, tours of which are available almost daily.
Chateau de Bardoulye was built in the reign of Henry IV and the grounds were awarded by the King to the family for loyal service at court. The house is situated halfway up a limestone hill above the Dropt River.
Within the magnificent grounds there are three outdoor eating areas: one in front of the kitchen that benefits from sun the entire day, the second on the east terrace shaded by several mature lime trees, ideal for afternoon tea and buffet suppers, the third is situated at the pool – adjacent to the guest house kitchen and is convenient for luncheons, and late dinners to enjoy the spectacular Dordogne sunsets. To the back of the pool and guest house is a rock garden with a pleasantly gurgling fountain that is a bastion of tranquility. It enjoys sunshine throughout the day, with a few well-placed trees for shade.
The heated pool and the area surrounding it is equipped with sun loungers, occasional tables, umbrellas and large comfy towels. The hard surfaced tennis court sits in a secluded area to the back of the property. Table tennis, croquet and badminton sets are provided. Gorge on beautiful peaches, apricots, plums, cherries, pears, apples and figs from the mature orchards in the park. The various paths throughout the estate are lined with blackberry bushes – providing juicy and delicious fruit. Enjoy walks through the grounds which boast lots of species of mature trees including oaks, cedars, chestnuts, magnolia, elm and Judea.
