Vintage Travel is thrilled to welcome La Castille to our portfolio of properties in South West France. This beautifully restored five-bedroom, three-bathroom 18th century stone bastide is the sister property of La Perigourdine and La Petite Maison. La Castille is the largest of the three properties, sleeping up to ten guests.
La Castille is located just 2.6 kilometres from the quaint market village of Castillonnes in the northern Lot-et-Garonne department of South West France. French food and wine enthusiasts will be in their element, as this area is renowned for its distinct cuisine and wine.
Character, charm and sophistication are at the heart of this lovingly-restored 18th century property. Internally, La Castille radiates rustic splendour, with soft linens, interesting artwork, a colour palette inspired by nature, rustic features sourced from local ‘brocantes’, ample space, and natural daylight flooding through the windows.
All La Castille’s bedrooms are spacious and tastefully decorated, enabling guests to spread out and relax in the comfort of this tranquil environment.
Large double doors lead from La Castille’s stunning kitchen/diner, onto the property’s delightful garden. These open grounds extend onto woodland and fields that stretch beyond La Castille.
A private fenced pool enables guests to cool down from the warm sun South West France boasts for much of the year. A decked area with sun loungers is the perfect spot for guests to enjoy some serious sunbathing or to relax with a book.
Situated between the Dordogne and Lot rivers, the area that surrounds La Castille is made for exploring. Scattered with flourishing vineyards producing the top-quality wine of the region and quirky and interesting bastide villages, La Castille provides the perfect base for visitors to become acquainted with authentic life in this relaxed and traditional part of France.
Dating back to the 13th century, the nearby Castillonnes is a true delight to visit. The hive of the town’s activity takes place at the Place des Cornieres, where an attractive town hall dominates one whole side of the village square.
This traditional bastide town can be reached from La Castille down a rural footpath. Further afield are the larger towns of Bergerac, which is 23 kilometres from the house, Eymet, some 18 kilometres away and Beaumont-du-Perigold, which is 25 kilometres from La Castille.
