Maison de Chasse - La Mazilière

Chenaud | Dordogne - Lot | France

Lovely family vacation on French country side

Enjoying the good life, what better place to do that than in the middle of a region that is known for its good wines and culinary regional food? And all this on a special, small-scale estate with a great atmosphere.

Between Bergerac, Bordeaux and Cognac is a former hunting castle with 3 stylish holiday homes, furnished with the most beautiful materials, warm colours and wonderful fabrics. Enjoy the peace and quiet, the wonderful nature, the French villages and markets. Discover the diverse surroundings by foot, on a bicycle or on the golf course.

The former hunting castle was built during the course of several centuries. Many authentic elements were kept and combined with luxury and comfort. The houses are beautifully restored with maintenance of original details, warm colours, stylish materials and furniture pieces. The owner is a stylist and it shows!

The main building is located around a courtyard, where you also find a well and a pigeon house.
La Mazilière and la Dronne are situated in the hunting castle, La Grange can be found in one of the outbuildings.
There is an abundance of space on the 3ha grounds. During summer you can enjoy the garden with ancient old lime trees, fruit trees and even a small forest. You can take a swim in the crystal clear water of the La Dronne River that borders the grounds.

La Mazilière

From the living/- dining room you reach the terrace (through a few steps) with dining table for 6 persons and 5 teak lounge beds. In line with this you find the garden. Through a gravel path and a small bridge over a tiny ditch you reach the banks, covered with grass. There is a platform (partially over the water) with lounge beds. The water of the river is clear and clean and perfect to take a swim in. The current is weak, but because it is pretty deep, children need to be guided. On the grounds are plenty of hiking paths, sitting areas and nice playgrounds for children.
