Astier Petit Chateau



Updated: 24-Oct-2016
Luxury Holiday Château with large swimming pool in the Dordogne

Set in the heart of a beautiful market town yet entirely contained within private and quiet walled gardens with a large 14 metre pool, this petit château offers something for all ages. The main house and neighbouring cottage are rented together for groups of up to 16.

Astier Petit Château is situated in the heart of a lovely market town that plays host to several events during the year including night markets and local antiques brocants. Just a short walk from the house you can pick out your own seasonal vegetables, foie gras, local cheeses, olives, breads and much more. There are several restaurants, bars and bakeries within a short walk as well as the tranquil river L'Isle which feeds into the Dordogne.

The property consists of the main house (petit château) together with a period cottage to one side so that larger groups or families with different aged children can have privacy whilst also enjoy the shared gardens and living areas.

The main house comprises a large kitchen/breakfast room that opens onto the terrace and pool area; a large drawing room with classic stone fireplace ideal for winter parties, two large double rooms with en suite bathrooms, two large twin bedded rooms with a modern family bathroom, and a DVD room with flat screen TV that can be converted into another double via a sofa bed if required.

The period cottage has it's own fully equipped kitchen with stone fire place, a king sized downstairs double room that opens on to the garden and pool area; a second upstairs double, a sunny twin room and a single room (that also contains a large wooden cot).

The property opens onto beautiful mature walled gardens with electric gates at both ends and parking for up to four cars. Guests are welcome to help themselves to any seasonal fruits from the trees including cherries, apples, grapes, peaches, apricots, pears and figs. The pool area is fenced with a child secure gate. There are several dining and seating areas around the garden as well as swings, a trampoline, slide and Wendy house to help occupy younger age groups. All amenities and restaurants are just a walk from the garden.

About the Manager

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. Bookings are made direct with the owner of your chosen property to guarantee you get the best booking price available.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a great time there, and the kids really enjoyed themselves. Collectively, between the setting, the Chateau, the people, and Souillac, we will talk about it for a long time to come.

As a group of 4 families we wanted space but also socialising areas where we could meet for meals and drinks. Chateau de Mazelle offered all of those things. The pool was a gorgeous centre point every day for the children - and the adults - to splash around and have fun. The dining terrace became the meeting point each day for fun and laughter - the dumb waiter lift from the kitchen was priceless for serving up the meals each day. The thunder storm we experienced from the terrace was one never to be forgotten - stunning! A day trip to the local caves was great for the kids but to be honest, everything we needed was at the chateau. A fantastic location for a group holiday. We will absolutely and definitely be back. The views alone are enough to get us back again. Heaven on earth!

Activity and Interests

Astier Petit Chateau is situated in the heart of a lovely market town that plays host to several events during the year including night markets and local antiques brocants. Every Thursday morning a large French market comes to the town changing the atmosphere from a tranquil haven to a vivacious colourful scene full of delights from the local region. Step out of the house and choose your own seasonal vegetables, foie gras, local cheeses, olives, breads and much more.

There are several restaurants, bars and bakeries within a short walk as well as the tranquil river L'Isle which feeds into the Dordogne. Facials and beauty treatments, canoeing, tennis and mini golf are also just a short walk away. Alternatively if you want the countryside there are many walks from the house up into the hills that offer unlimited options.
