Location

The property sits in open countryside with no near neighbours, midway (10 - 15 minutes) between Monflanquin, Cancon and Villeréal.

Monflanquin is an old bastide town with winding streets and fabulous views. All amenities in the village including large supermarket, cafés, restaurants, bakeries.

Cancon and Villeréal also with all amenities including further shops and restaurants and weekly street markets.

The Dordogne area of France is one of the most beautiful and one of the most popular. Lovely countryside interspersed with medieval, bastide towns and fairytale châteaux rising from the morning mist.

Its a great region for food lovers; all the Perigordian specialities such as Foie Gras, confit d'oie and canard, mushrooms of all types are in abundance.

Many antique markets throughout the year. All info at the tourist information office.

Bergerac (30 minutes) was once a flourishing port for the wine trade. It still today has a picturesque harbour where you can take a boat trip along the river Dordogne, or a miniature train ride around the Bastide town, viewing the many half timbered houses with terracotta decoration.

The many timbered houses with terracotta decoration that line the lanes of the old town, are wonderfully evocative of the 14th, 15th and 16th centuries. On one corner the wanderer suddenly finds himself 'nose to nose' with Cyrano whose statue proudly reminds the visitor that Bergerac owes some of its fame to this historic figure. Not surprisingly the annual theatre 'Le Festival du Théatre' is named after him.

A great way to tour the vineyards is by following the designated Route des vins where the visitor will be welcomed by the growers and encouraged to try their wines. The Bergerac region is sometimes called Perigord Pourpre the name deriving from the rich purple-red wines that characterize this area of Perigord.

When the subject of 'gastronomy' is raised it is usually associated with a particular region and the Perigord stands in high regard in this field. The traditional produce, such as truffles, walnuts, strawberries and the wines, together with the well-known rich specialties derived from fattened geese and ducks, is largely responsible for this fame.

Reviews

« We have just spent a wonderful week at Chateau de Saint-Vivien. The house offers the most fantastic escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life. The house itself is breathtakingly beautiful, well set back on a very quiet country lane. Inside is just as beautiful, with room after room decorated in a traditional style, and filled with wonderful antiques. Bedrooms are large and comfortable. The kitchen has a country feel, but with all mod cons. The pool area was stunning. We met the owners during our stay, who popped in to tend the garden. They were delightful, and made themselves always available if we had any questions or needed anything, but we're very unobtrusive. I would recommend the Chateau if you like tranquility and style! »  Fiona (UK)
