    Description

    We are married and in our mid thirties with a little girl, 2 cats and a dog. We are currently restoring a chateau in a little hamlet about 10 minutes from the market town of Riberac.

    The 10 bedroom chateau is set in 10 acres of parkland, we have a small lake, massive swimming pool and 4 guest houses.

    We are currently living in 2 of them and the other 2 are ready to rent out.

    Accommodation

    In one of our guest houses or in a tent in the park if you want. If we have a 'couple' then they would be in our 1 bedroom guest house but if we have a few single people or a group then they would be in our 3 bedroom guest house.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There is a local bar a short walk from the chateau and approx. 1 mile away is a lovely village with a small supermarket, a few bars, restaurant, pharmacie, boulangerie, tabac and post office.

    We are meat eaters and probably wouldn't be very good at catering for vegetarian or vegans

    Hope you like animals
