Dordogne holiday chateau
Welcome to Goursac, an 18th century family summer home nestled in the beautiful rolling hills of the Dordogne. The chateau has been fully renovated and tastefully furnished and sleeps 12. An additional 4 people can be accommodated in the Maison du Ceou.
The location atop a forested hill is completely private and peaceful - no roads, no traffic, no street lights. This is a wonderful location for star-gazing. Within the grounds there is a 12m pool with beautiful views across the hills. There is also a tennis court, a maze, and woods to stroll in.
4 double bedrooms, 2 twin bedrooms, 3 single bedrooms (2 of these have connecting doors to double rooms, to make a family suite). All our rooms are really spacious.
Our tennis court is next to the 18th century dovecote. It has an all-weather surface, and we provide balls and racquets.
Lots of living space with 4 big reception rooms including a living room with piano, a billiard room, a library to hide away and read in, and a dining room that seats 18.
60 acres of grounds for you to enjoy including a childrens play area, a maze, and woodland paths perfect for a shady stroll on a hot summers day.
The pool is tucked away a short walk from the house, very secure, and has beautiful views across the valley.
We provide all bedding and towels (including pool towels) and our housekeeping team will clean for you 3 times a week. We can also offer chef services and babysitting if you book in advance.
"The chateau is a magical place for a family of all ages; we were 4 years old to 80! It was terrific to have such a marvelous base for the wide variety of adventures, all nearby; castles, gardens, caves, kayaking and stunning scenery everywhere we went. We loved our time there."
