The Details...

Domaine de Bellanger is an exceptional hilltop retreat centred around a grand courtyard, combining a 19th century mansion and a 18th century hunting lodge, surrounded by acres of immaculate private estate. The interior design is lavish yet cosy, in delicate shades of white and blue that complement the exposed stonework, creating bright and spacious interiors across fantastic dining and living spaces. Each benefits from four luxurious bedrooms in a family friendly mix of twin, double and bunk beds, as well as an extensive list of amenities including wide screen satellite TV’s, Bluetooth stereo and outdoor speakers.

The grounds are timeless in their grandeur, offering acres of expertly preened Aquitaine countryside that includes lawns, walled gardens, a heated swimming pool, an arboretum, and two small lakes. There really is little you could want for when staying in such luxury, but be sure to explore the fantastic region that surrounds the property, where you’ll find exquisite restaurants, magnificent chateaux and endless tranquil countryside.

The property is set in 175 acres of private land. Mainly mixed woodland and pasture. The gardens near the house are beautifully landscaped and include a boxwood parterre in the courtyard and a walled garden to the rear of the main house. At the back of the Pavillion is a beautiful terrace with a 35km uninterrupted view of rolling hills. The main driveway includes a recently planted avenue of lime trees and mature parkland with many beautiful specimen trees.

Each house has four bedrooms, in a family-friendly mix of twin, double and bunk beds; six of the eight complete with en suite facilities, the remaining two rooms sharing a bathroom and the privacy of their own wing.

A supermarket is located in Nontron only 12km away. Be sure to visit Brantome, The Venice of the Dordogne, with the oldest clock tower in France, where you'll also find a market on Fridays, as well as a bakery and some great restaurants. Also within easy reach is Bourdeilles, the intriguing Caves of Villars, and the very charming village of Saint Jean de Cole. Take a longer trip to Angouleme, where you'll find the ornate, Romanesque St Pierre Cathedral and a beautiful town to wander though and admire.
