About La Chartreuse

A stunning period property enclosed within expansive private grounds, La Chartreuse is a delightfully comfortable Dordogne villa that’s well-suited to families. Situated in the heart of the charming village of Calès, the villa is very convenient for exploring historic Dordogne sites as well as the wider Lot region.

On the ground floor, the living room, dining room and well-equipped kitchen each have direct access to the pretty garden and a heated swimming pool. Up an attractive staircase, there are two beautifully decorated en suite master bedrooms with garden views on the first floor, and another three bedrooms and two bathrooms on the top floor.

Guests at this handsome 17th-century villa can also drive to the owners’ chateau, a 5-star hotel with a Michelin-starred restaurant, to use the private tennis court and dine at the Michelin-starred restaurant.

Calès itself has a couple of restaurants, and there are a number of interesting sights in the surrounding area, including the stunning Gouffre de Padirac, an underground cave, located a 35 minute drive away. Further afield, the Lot region is a gourmet’s wonderland, known for its truffles, foie gras, and bustling local markets.

Sleeping up to 10 people, La Chartreuse is a chic and welcoming property wrapped in spectacular scenery. Even a short stay is sure to make a big impression.
