Château de Carsac

 Dordogne, France 
 

Pool

Surrounded by a rose garden, with the stunning backdrop of the church of Carsac-de-Gurson, the 9x5m pool is heated, and open May to September.  Relax with a book on the sun loungers, take a cooling dip, or splash around with pool toys and inflatables.

Terraces

The chateau terrace enjoys stunning views over the valley, vineyards and the Chateau-de-Gurson.  There's nowhere better to relax with an aperitif as the afternoon turns to evening.  The terrace table seats ten, with a parasol to provide shade on the hottest days.

Next to the pool, the loggia can seat twelve around a large table, and has gas and charcoal barbecues.

Garden

In front of the chateau, three lawns are bordered with herbs and flowering shrubs.  Choose lounge chairs if someone already took prime spot in the hammock, or get involved in a game of pétanque, badminton or swing ball.

Orchard

The orchard is one of the joys of life at Chateau de Carsac.  From spring through to autumn there are fruits and nuts: plums, cherries, peaches, apricots, almonds, apples, pears, blackberries and figs.  We invite you to pick whatever is ripe during your stay.  

Park and Lakes

Six acres of grounds surround the chateau, containing the orchard, two lakes and several wildflower meadows.  You can picnic, or look out for deer, coypu, waterbirds and uncountable butterflies.  There's space for big family games, and quiet spots to sit and watch the sunset.
