Chateau Beaufort is a stunning property with two long entrance driveways, and an immense stone home surrounded by 100 acres of grass, trees and grazing meadows. This home is ideal for groups of 8 to 20. The remodeled kitchen has everything you need to cater to a large group. The first floor bedrooms are spacious and well appointed and the baths are recently remodeled. The 4 bedrooms on the upper floor are less elegant and share one bath. The dining room seats 10 and the kitchen another 10. We did 1000 piece puzzles on one of the kitchen tables as it is such a gathering place. The living room is huge and seats 10 comfortably with a large screen TV and lots of books.
The pool is amazing with a salt water system and lots of lounges for sunbathing. The peace and quiet of the grounds allow you to hear the songbirds singing all day.
The owners (Marc and Marie) were most accomodating our needs early as we settled in and worked out some initial kinks. Their caretakers, Jon Michel and Isabel, were truly amazing and solved all our early issues with beds, plumbing and an older washing machine that was replaced. Jon Michel is also the town baker and a source of daily bread and the occasional pizza.
The grounds teem with flowers that we could cut and bring into the house. An organic garden was a source of lettuce, strawberries, and green beans.
We had 16 friends and 14 family members there at various times during our one month stay and everyone had a life changing experience. The owners are working on solving our one issue of excessive flies that the grazing sheep brought to the party.
Overall, this is an exceptional vacation experience for larger groups and get a five star rating from our family!! This is definitely a “low key” rural location with narrow curvy roads with some distances to travel for sights and activities. The town of La Roche-Canillac is quiet, but has the Boulangerie, Pharmacy and a sweet small grocery store with a great selection of fruits, veggies and general goods. Bob Voyage!!!
A nice old stone house with a lot of caracter. It is spacious with a great garden ( lots of shade) and a nice pair of donkeys. Very quiet and beautiful skies at night. Very close to the gorges de Dordogne and about half an hour drive to a good supermarket. One small thing to improve: the shower is very small.
