About the property

Luxury chateau to rent with private pool in the Dordogne

In the south-west of France, in the heart of Périgord Noir, the castle of Ruffiac overlooks the Dordogne valley. It was restored in the XIXth century in the Renaissance style. This former noble castle is surrounded by a 20-hectare park and dates back to the 17th century. Today, the residence is the ideal holiday place to discover Périgord and the Medieval market town of Sarlat. The chateau is a haven for peace and beauty, offering incredible panoramic views over the surrounding countryside.

Rooms at the chateau are elegant and tastefully representative of the French style. The lucky guests that rent the chateau will enjoy all its amenities including nine bedrooms (6 doubles, 2 twins, a single), two living rooms with large Renaissance fireplaces, a vast and fully equipped kitchen (Godin cooker, dishwasher, washing machine, all equipment), a dining room, an inner courtyard and two boudoirs in the towers. The castle has six bathrooms and four WCs. Other facilities include: phone, fax, internet connection, TV set with international channels, HIFI, babyfoot & table tennis. All bed linen is supplied free of charge. There is a spare bedroom that can be used as a dormitory for children.

Outside the chateau sits in a 20-hectare park with private hiking paths. It is even possible to access the chateau by helicopter! There is also a garage and a private alarmed swimming pool.

About Oliver's Travels - France

Simply Chateau was set up in 2003 after two old school chums enjoyed a fantastic holiday with friends in a French chateau in the Dordogne. Oliver & Ravi, the two directors of the company, were amazed at what terrific value these stunning chateau rentals represented and decided to spread the word. Soon after the website www.simplychateau.com was born.

Today we deliver a wide range of luxury villas, private chateau and charming farmhouses throughout France, Italy, Spain, the UK and the Caribbean. We have something for everyone from charming manor houses representing great value for money to fully catered & serviced luxury chateau, all handpicked and chosen with care.

I was lucky enough to stay at the chateau towards the tail end of last year. I absolutely agree with the review below that it's a wonderful place to stay but can also confirm that the following changes have been made:

- A new improved wifi has been added and I had no problems with it during my stay.

- The chateau can be cool outside of the summer months on account of the thick stone walls (but you can just turn the heating up if you need it).

- The outdoor pool can be cold outside of the summer months (but you certainly don't need it any warmer in July & August) - it just depends if you're lucky with the weather.

- If you are a large group then the hot water can run out from time to time but it only takes an hour or so to heat up again.
