Chateau Madame stands high on a hillside with views across a valley once lorded over by this 12th century Baronnie. Witness and party to the Hundred Years War, she is now a sleeping giant - one of peace and tranquility.

Situated in the beautiful Dordogne-Périgord region, Chateau Madame is the perfect place for couples, families and friends to come, relax, adventure and just be.

The space
Chateau Madame has been meticulously restored with an eye towards preserving her original details and personality. Modern comforts and amenities have been subtly woven into her fabric, allowing the original chateau to remain at center stage. We love Chateau Madame, and it is our pleasure to share her with like-minded travelers.

Guest access
When you arrive you will turn up the long grassy drive and traverse the hillside until you are facing the chateau, its terrace, and French doors leading into the kitchen. A massive wisteria clings to the chateau.

FLOOR PLAN

Kitchen
Entered through the french doors. Overhead are huge hewn beams as in all the rooms. The kitchen is fully equipped including dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator, electric kettle, gas four burner stove.

Terrace/Pool Area
Perfect for having an outdoor meal and listening to nature. Also we invite you to take a dip in the refreshing pool, measuring 4x9 meters (14x30 feet).

Dining Room
From the kitchen, pass to the dining room. A huge fireplace, high beamed ceiling and stone walls the color of champagne greet you. Light pours in from the facing view of the valley on to the warm chestnut floors.

Stair Hall
From the dining room, pass to the stair hall. One of our favorite parts of Chateau Madame, it ascends to the 2nd and 3rd floor.

Living Room
Pass now to the living room whose chestnut floors, huge fireplace and dimensions nearly duplicate those of the dining room. The furniture is decidedly comfortable as is the atmosphere. It is a place to relax with friends and family after a day of adventure or to just read a good book.

1st Floor Bedroom
Pass out of the living room and up five steps to the 1st floor bedroom. A double bed faces a view of the valley.
A stone fireplace stands against the high peaked ceiling. An interesting feature is the lower portion of one of the towers, which now functions as this sleeping chamber.

1st Floor Crimson Bathroom
Pass through the 1st floor bedroom into the bathroom. Without any question, this ensuite bathroom is the most incongruous part of Chateau Madame. Created during the 1960s with a sunken tub! Walls, floor, and yes, the ceiling, are all very beautiful very crimson red tiles. Dazzling! The washer and dryer are also located here.

Tower Room
Pass again through the 1st floor bedroom and you will find a small room with a spiral stairway leading up into the tower and tower bedroom. A great place to be banished to, it has a single bed and the best views at Chateau Madame. Through its own door, the tower room shares the crimson bathroom with the 1st floor bedroom.

Master Bedroom 1 - second floor
Opposite the king size bed and its hangings, a massive fireplace is centered. The room is large and nearly duplicates the size of the dining room below. Adjoining it and also large is the master bathroom. With tub, free standing shower, toilet and sink. A casement window looks out over the distant hills and valley.

Master Bedroom 2 - second floor
A beautifully carved stone fireplace stands adjacent to the queen-size bed with its warm red bed hangings. From there you will look out the tall windows across to the hills on the other side of the valley. The bathroom is located in the Watch Tower. The windows, once used by lookouts, were designed for these commanding views.
Included are a tub/shower, toilet, bidet and sink.

3rd Floor
The 3rd floor is currently not part of the rental space.

Other things to note
We have been asked as to the size of our pool, and we happily say that our pool measures 4x9 meters.

Location

Mauzens-et-Miremont, Aquitaine, France

Though a passing farm vehicle is as common as not, Chateau Madame is central to and minutes away from all the remarkable places, adventures and amusement parks we come to the Dordogne and the Périgord Noir for. Exploring the magnificent landscape and medieval surroundings will transport you to a another century. Chateau Madame is minutes away from such places as Castelnaud, Beynac – the one-time stronghold of Richard the Lion Heart, the medieval town of Sarlat, the bastide town of Domme, and a seemingly unending list of places and remarkable experiences.

The Dordogne is one of the world centers of Prehistory, and it records Europe’s earliest art treasures. At Les Eyzies, 10 minutes away, you will find the magnificent newly constructed National Museum of Prehistory, the cave paintings at Font de Gaume, and the site of the remains of the Cro-Magnon Man.

Directly below Chateau Madame is a wonderful vegetable farm that sets up at all the weekly village markets. Walk down the driveway and buy your dinner fresh from these lovely people.

With a love of this part of France, my parents, artists, bought Chateau Madame in 1989. Having begun on the same path, my work had evolved to architecture and the design, oversight and restoration of historic buildings, which continues today. So needless to say, Chateau Madame was perfect. Chateau Madame came to me some years ago. I find her just as warm and fascinating as I did at the start. It's such a different environment from the norm; for me, it's the perfect place to keep a busy mind at rest. I live on an 18th Century farm in coastal Rhode Island in the United States. Old for New England, there is a dichotomy yet a peaceful link between the two that I love.
