St Geyrac, France
Chateau de Monferrier
Built in 1611, the chateau of classical proportions and symmetry and one of the most beautiful in its area, has been completely renovated to high standards and furnished with a mix of French and contemporary pieces with all modern conveniences. Entrance is via an avenue of trees through stately cast iron gates into a chateau full of light and airy spaces. Magnificent chandeliers light the public areas within. Almost every room has its own fireplace. The kitchen has been equipped with the best appliances fit for a gourmet chef. The outdoors eating and relaxing area overlooks the large pool which is sited on the side of a small hill with lovely views of the countryside.
A guardian will be in place to show guests how to use the facilities at the chateau as well as organise cleaners to keep the chateau in good condition.
The chateau is not appropriate for babies or children under the age of 10 years. There are no cribs or high chairs provided and the owner reserves the right to refuse reservations by members bringing babies or children under the age of 10 years.

A Special Visit We Will Always Remember
I cannot even begin to describe how truly magical this beautiful home and part of France is. We totally enjoyed our visit. At the Chateau owners' recommendation, we had a chef prepare a full French dinner one evening and enjoyed a special night staying in. Compliments to all who lovingly renovated this breathtaking property. It is truly stunning.”
