Holiday Rental House
Sitting majestically on a limestone escarpment and surrounded by our own vineyards, the holiday house at Chateau de Claribes has magnificent views over our own valley to the front, and vineyards to the rear. Peacefully situated in the heart of the countryside, yet only 3km from the pretty village of Gensac, our visitors enjoy the tranquil, relaxed pace of life, with close proximity to all the services of village life. On arrival, you pass through the flower-filled front garden to the door, where you enter into the middle of the very spacious ground floor space (13m x 6m with high ceilings). One huge cooking, eating, relaxing space, there is plenty of dining and lounging furniture for six. An abundance of cookware, crockery and cutlery ensures meals can be relaxed.

Peacefully situated in the heart of the countryside, yet only 3km from the pretty village of Gensac, our visitors enjoy the tranquil, relaxed pace of life, with close proximity to all the services of village life.

One huge cooking, eating, relaxing space, there is plenty of dining and lounging furniture for six. An abundance of cookware, crockery and cutlery ensures meals can be relaxed. The living area has a sofa, chairs, TV with DVD player, books and a selection of board games. The wood burner in the living area provides useful additional heating. On the first floor are two double bedrooms, one with en suite shower room with shower, loo and washbasin. Each bedroom has hanging space and drawers for clothing. The family bathroom has a bath, loo and washbasin. Large, soft fluffy towels will be in the bathrooms, and the beds made up for you on arrival, with plenty of pillows, duvets and crisp cotton sheets. Keeping the character of this centuries old farmhouse, we've sympathetically installed new plumbing and electricity to meet today's needs. Locally crafted tiles and wooden floors, rugs made from natural materials, and furniture from the village cabinet maker, all help to reduce our carbon footprint. We only use water-based paints and ensure that we buy from companies who also have a reputation for sustainability. We can provide allergen-free pillows and duvets on request. The private gardens to the front and rear of the house have dining and lounging furniture. Barbecue provided. There's plenty of space for outdoor games - badminton, frisbee, boules, basket, rugby and foot balls, etc; are available. Private parking for two cars. You are welcome to explore amongst the vines, walk through our fields down to the river for paddling and picnicing, or sit by our babbling natural source of water to experience the tranquility of Claribes. Help yourself to the herbs in the front garden of your holiday home. Collect seasonal fruit and nuts from the gardens - plum, cherry, mirabelle, greengage, fig, green fig, almonds, walnuts, etc. We can provide you with running, walking and cycling routes. You will find information about shopping, restaurants, local activities and interesting places to visit in the House Book. More

We had a great fortnight here. The property is well equipped and the rooms spacious. The shutters and thick walls help to keep the interior cool, even in the crazy temperatures experienced in summer 2015! Overall excellent, with two key points worthy of note: 1)...More

About the neighbourhood
The pretty village of Gensac is within walking distance of Chateau de Claribes, along a very quiet country lane or through the vineyards, or 5 minutes by car. In the village you will find a butcher; baker; small grocery store; a weekly market; pharmacy; and two restaurants, bank machine and doctor - everything for daily needs! The village hosts a huge brocante in August, a music festival in July, and night markets throughout the summer where locals and visitors enjoy meeting up to enjoy good food from local producers with delicious local wine.
Getting around
Most people prefer to explore the area by car. Car hire is available at the airports and mainline railway stations. If you prefer to explore by bike, we can provide you with contact details for local bike hire, and/or provide you with a safe place to store your bikes. The nearest station is Velines, on the main line between Bordeaux and Bergerac/Sarlat, so it's possible to explore the pretty towns of St Emilion, Castillon, Bergerac, and Sarlat without a car.
