Villa Belvedere  - Classic Dordogne     Castelnaud-la-Chapelle   | Bedrooms: 4 | Sleeps: 8

  Your perfect private hilltop retreat

Perched high on a rock face in the very heart of the old Dordogne with stunning views from its twin terraces overlooking the valleys of the Dordogne and C’eau, essentially a private home rather than a typical holiday let, Belvedere is the perfect ‘private hill top retreat’ from which to explore the delights of the Dordogne. 
Indeed it would be difficult to find a more central location in this the most beautiful and dramatic part of the Dordogne – just 20 minutes from the famous medieval market town of Sarlat, 15 minutes from the ancient hill top fortress of Domme, 10 minutes from the Chateaux of Beynac, Les Milandes, and Fayac with the spectacular views and gardens of Marqueyssac literally across the valley.

A fabulous terrace runs the full length of the house whilst below an extensive pool deck extends out over the valley on stilts.  The pool area comprises a summer kitchen, gas barbeque, sun loungers, large outdoor dining table and comfortable armchairs.

Kick back with a bottle of chilled Bergerac and raise a glass to the hot air balloons rising up directly from the valley below as they pass right in front of the terrace!

5 Minutes from Belvedere beneath the Chateau of Castlenaud lies the local village with an excellent baker, butcher, small grocery store, two restaurant/café bars plus post office and a 24hr cash-point facility. Importantly the canoe hire is based right here for those exciting trips down the Dordogne..........
