Château de Carsac

 Dordogne, France 
 

Le Chalet

The barn of the chateau has been converted to make a sunny gite with spectacular views.  Perfect for a couple or family of four, the chalet can be rented individually or alongside the chateau.

The entrance to the chalet opens into a kitchen diner, with terracotta flooring and traditional stone walls.  Full height folding doors open onto the terrace with  gas barbecue, seating, and access to the garden.  The kitchen is equipped with a range cooker, microwave, fridge freezer and washing machine, as well as all the equipment you'll need for enjoying fresh local produce.  An oak dining table seats six.

 

From the dining area, stairs lead up to the mezzanine master bedroom and en suite bathroom with bath and shower.  

A separate lounge has sofas, a wood-burning stove, TV and DVD player.  This room can be converted to a second bedroom with double sofa bed, suitable for children.

 

The chalet is surrounded by a garden with old walls, lawns for playing or lounging, and uninterrupted views over the countryside around.

       

La Maison du Gardien

This former vineyard worker's cottage is now a lovely hideaway for two, neighbouring the beautiful church of Carsac-de-Gurson.
