Welcome to Eco-Chateau

The magical powers of this property help you relax in an instant. "....like stepping straight into a film" as one guest put it. And another guest wrote: "an incredible, beautiful, historic chateau that dates back to the 17th century. The moment we rolled through the gates of the chateau, we knew we'd made an outstanding choice in terms of accommodation,  this place surpassed all of our expectations...in one of the most lush and beautiful regions of central France....".  

This is a charming, rustic, 'homey' property,  not luxury but 'shabbychic' at just the right price. Tranquillity and silence are keynotes here.

 Eco Chateau

The perfect rental for large group holidays, family reunions, events, weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, workshops or retreats. SEE MORE PHOTOS here.

As featured in the GUARDIAN newspaper.

On the edge of the fascinating Dordogne region of France, surrounded by lakes, forests and gorges, it's one of the 'wildest' and most unspoilt parts of France.  


With a large 12x7 meter swimming pool, abundant verdant land to roam around in and even a local masseur to smooth away the aches and pains, it is the perfect place to unwind. Or if you relax by getting active, there are lots of natural world activities to indulge in nearby as well as great restaurants, ancient villages and historical sites within the area - day trips to Collonges la Rouge, Rocamadour and other 'plus belles villages de France'. 

"This accommodation is a gem that you feel

you've discovered and want to keep to yourself!", 

as another guest wrote.

We hold ecological principles dear to our heart. This year, we have left the grasses in the adjacent fields to grow wild thus attracting and nurturing abundant insect and bee life. We love wild vegetables and salad which most people call 'weeds' and they are regularly featured on our dinner table. Recycling is important to us, as are the use of natural products and we buy local & organic wherever possible. 

And...we are in the process of creating an eco-village here. That is why we are called Eco Chateau.
