Who has not dreamed of taking a real break for the holidays, in a historic setting with authentic charm, surrounded by nature, with family and friends, while being at the heart of the most beautiful and gastronomic areas? Have you thought about renting an authentic family castle?
The Château de La Meynardie, a timeless place in the Dordogne in South West of France
The Chateau de La Meynardie is a paradise for young and old. A 17th century residence, refined and comfortable, nestled in a huge French park of several hectares, with swimming pool, tennis and vegetable garden, and a breathtaking view.
The space is such that everyone can find their own space to read or rest in loungers in the shade of the alleys of lime trees; or gather around large tables for meals; or organize a soiree in one of the lovely reception rooms.
Renting the whole castle just for you: a dream holiday
For the active ones in your family, the days can be filled with many activities. Take bike rides in the beautiful countryside, visiting charming old villages, castles, abbeys or prehistoric caves, “foie gras” workshop or truffle tour, play golf or kayak. And for the more peaceful ones, nap in the freshness of the pretty rooms or at the edge of the swimming pool, walk in the beautiful paths of the park or in the forest around the big pond in the vicinity, picking mushrooms in the autumn.
Children will discover the garden and the sheep grazing in the field, swim in the pool, play croquet, ping-pong, table football, tennis, or swing then play endless games of hide and seek.
In the evening, the group builds its ties again with everyone telling his story of the day around huge tables under the linden trees, or in the large dining room, or in the vast living room in wood paneling.
An unlimited space, the sound of birds and the colours of nature, old stones and the warm and welcoming decoration of a family home, friendly sharing or quiet calm … these are the memories that one keeps from moments lived in La Meynardie. Where time feels suspended in the sweet fragrant smell of country air wafting through open windows, long shadows from summer sun and the laughter of loved ones.
