Chateau des Chevaliers is the latest offering from Quality Villas Ltd.

Lying deep in the green countryside of the Dordogne region of France is a little piece of history, Chateau des Chevaliers. This elegant French chateau is the latest offering from Quality Villas Ltd for a holiday rental in this charming part of the world, allowing guests to soak up the atmosphere of French nobility and of days gone by. Dating from the 16th century and sporting wonderfully ornate features from fine wood panelling, carved stone fireplaces to finely crafted mosaics, this French chateau is offered for let by Quality Villas Ltd, a family owned French villa holiday rental agency based in Great Britain. Nearby Perigueux, the capital of the Dordogne, is one of the largest renaissance towns in France, with a huge cathedral, one of many a pilgrims stop offs on the route to Saint-Jacques-de-Compostelle.

For those that prefer a little more of another kind of culture, this is also wine country, the well known town of St Emilion is closeby with many cellars in stumbling distance offering tastings. Local delicacies include Foie Gras, whilst one surely hasn't experienced France without the compulsory croissant, French stick and glass of Pastis from one of the local shops and bars which abound freely in this region.

In spite of its historical past, contemporary furnishings and mod-cons ensure a good level of comfort, indeed its hard to imagine what French noblemen of several hundred years ago would have thought of WI-FI internet access in their 'castle' and a private pool in the grounds. As a French villa holiday, Chateau des Chevaliers offers a wonderful way to relax and spend a week or two, perhaps even watching the odd pilgrim pass by…from the comfort of the swimming pool of course!
