About Chateau Joie de Vivre

Chateau Joie de Vivre turns your French castle fantasy into a reality. Perched atop its substantial estate of gardens and woodlands, this meticulously restored treasure keeps a firm hold of its past with its monolithic walls, 16th century staircases, imposing oak beams and original fireplaces and transports it into the world of modern luxury.

Guests can switch blissfully between the many spaces on offer, from open-plan kitchen to outside terrace, two-storey library to manicured lawn, and Steinway piano to candlelit dining turret. Navigate its many floors by 16th century staircases to find spacious lounges and eight bedrooms brimming with character. Beds are pillowtop American kings dressed in high thread count French linen, and the double shower en-suites give spa hotels a run for their money – complete with AESOP products, cotton robes, slippers, and fluffy towels.

Stunning views of the Dordogne greet you at many a window, terrace and garden corner. Take a morning dip in the pool, teach the next generation how to play tennis on the private court, and ask for a cooking class in the chef-approved kitchen. If you can pull yourself away, the valley is dotted with many beautiful villages such as Saint-Astier promising quaint cafes, boulangeries and local fine dining.
