Chateau du Bastit, Pinsac, Dordogne, France Vacation Rental
This exceptional private chateau in Dordogne enjoys a dominant position on a hill with spectacular views of the river and surrounding countryside. This is a luxurious and stylish retreat, completely private, with a huge stone fireplace, comfortable furnishings and attractive decor, terraces overlooking the river, and an impressive conservatory-style dining room. Built in the warm-coloured local stone, this atmospheric 15th century chateau is simultaneously cosy and spacious, full of character and very welcoming.
No matter what the composition of your group, you will find plenty here to do for everyone. This region is of course famous for its caves (grottes) with their ancient wall paintings and spectacular stalagmites and stalagtites: Chateau de la Riviere is ideally placed if you want to visit some of these, such as the Gouffre du Padirac just a few miles away. The Dordogne region is also famous for its good food and wine and, as an additional bonus, just a short drive from Chateau de la Riviere is a luxury chateau hotel with a Michelin-starred restaurant. Also within easy reach is the significant little town of Rocamadour, France's second-most visited destination (after Mont St Michel). Many sporting activities are available nearby, ranging from canoeing/kayaking on several rivers, to fishing, horse riding, hot-air ballooning and cycling. Or why not simply take a boat trip along the Dordogne itself in one of the distinctive, traditional flat-bottomed gabarres and soak up the wonderful scenery?
A stay at this wonderful private chateau in Dordogne would not be complete without a visit to the bustling and attractive medieval market towns of Sarlat-le-Caneda and Martel, where you will find good shops and restaurants, pavement cafes and, of course, excellent markets. This would certainly be a holiday to remember for a very long time!
