Chateau des Chauvaux - Bed & Breakfast

Chateau des Chauvaux is a beautiful old castle in the Dordogne in full renovation! There are currently two ensuite bedrooms in use as chambres d’Hôtes (B&B).

The salle à manger is for general use, as is the veranda and of course the garden!
The castle stands on its own grounds of 6 hectares on the edge of a small village in an agricultural area.
The estate has a number of beautiful old trees: plane trees, majestic cedars, oak and chestnut trees.
The garden is partly still quite wild, but it also has a special flora and fauna. There are plans for a beautifully landscaped French-style garden!
Although a small part will remain wild for ecological purpose.

Chateau des Chauvaux was built at the end of the 16th century on the remains of a ‘maison forte’ ruin.
In 1887-1888 there was a major renovation. Two octagonal towers and a mansard roof have been added to the existing building.
Presumably all the ceilings and beams were plastered and the marble fireplaces were installed in the then prevailing Napoleon III style.
Remains of a much larger fireplace have been found in the salle à manger.
