Carlux chateau / country house description

In the south-west of France, in the heart of Périgord Noir, the castle of Ruffiac overlooks the Dordogne valley. It was restored in the XIXth century in the Renaissance style. This former noble castle is surrounded by a 20-hectare park and dates back to the 17th century. Today, the residence is the ideal holiday place to discover Périgord and the Medieval market town of Sarlat. The chateau is a haven for peace and beauty, offering incredible panoramic views over the surrounding countryside.

Rooms at the chateau are elegant and tastefully representative of the French style. The lucky guests that rent the chateau will enjoy all its amenities including nine bedrooms (6 doubles, 2 twins, a single), two living rooms with large Renaissance fireplaces, a vast and fully equipped kitchen (Godin cooker, dishwasher, washing machine, all equipment), a dining room, an inner courtyard and two boudoirs in the towers. The castle has six bathrooms and four WCs. Other facilities include: phone, fax, internet connection, TV set with international channels, HIFI, babyfoot & table tennis. All bed linen is supplied free of charge. There is a spare bedroom that can be used as a dormitory for children.

Outside the chateau sits in a 20-hectare park with private hiking paths. It is even possible to access the chateau by helicopter! There is also a garage and a private alarmed swimming pool.
