Stunning chateau sleeping 16 in the Dordogne, with an events barn for celebrations, swimming pool and games facilities

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Chateau Tourbeille, Pessac-sur-Dordogne, France, sleeps 12-16 in 8 bedrooms.

Built in the late 1700's, the original building as early as the 1500’s, Tourbeille was erected as the river customs house because of its prime location directly on the bend of the Dordogne River, giving it stunning, secluded 180 degree views west towards St Foy and north towards the world heritage site of St Emilion.

The château is approached by a private driveway and the building itself is surrounded by a central, closed, classic courtyard with direct access to the event barn and entertaining spaces located in the many outbuildings, whilst retaining an intimate and private feel and sanctuary. Woods also border the property‘s 4.5 hectares of land to ensure privacy, peace and quiet.

Original exposed stone walls, Girondine tiled and parquet floors and exposed beams and classic stone and marble fireplaces feature throughout. Impressively sized reception rooms including a snooker room, cinema room, fully equipped gym, library and grand dining room. A vast open plan kitchen/diner offers the perfect entertaining space for large groups or families.

With 8 large double en suite bedrooms, the main château can sleep 16 adults and has various cots and fold out beds for babies and small children. All the rooms have stunning river views as well as that of the surrounding land and nature.

Chateau Tourbeille is set in 4.5 hectares of woodland and parkland and boasts unparalleled views of the Dordogne river. The estate includes an orchard with several varieties of fruit trees along with extensive grounds and parkland that offer all guests the freedom to enjoy themselves.

The 12m x 6m outdoor heating swimming pool is set adjacent to the kitchen/diner and is flanked by outdoor eating and entertaining spaces along with an outdoor kitchen and barbecue area. A sunken trampoline and three towered climbing and activity set are also set within the parkland giving children and adults alike the chance to burn off excess energy.
