Château les Merles |Modern accommodations on castle domain

Contemporary design meets 17th-century elegance

A long driveway lined with plane trees leads to the neoclassical façade of an enchanting 17th-century castle, wrapped in vineyards and woods.

Originally a wine farm, Château les Merles guarantees a relaxing stay at just a short distance from the city of Bergerac, in the Dordogne. The historical character of the estate blends harmoniously with its sleek and modern décor.

Subdued grey colors and concrete floors create an industrial look, while soft lighting, plush carpets, and wooden ceiling beams add a warm atmosphere.

Château les Merles has three beautiful 3-bedroom holiday homes (with communal pool) and a holiday home with a private swimming pool, all slightly away from the castle; so, perfect for families or couples who want that bit more of privacy. The castle itself offers four types of rooms equipped with every comfort. The staff is accommodating and does everything to ensure that you have an enjoyable stay.

The domain features an outdoor pool, tennis court and even a nine-hole golf course.

Book a Spa treatment, a massage or join a cooking class.

The stylish restaurant, led by Dutch chef Bas Holten, offers delicious seasonal dishes, while you are welcomed in the bistro and lounge-style bar for a drink and appetizers. Here you have the choice of a wide selection of Bergerac wines and exquisite snacks. In the morning, a buffet breakfast is served (optional). Staying at a castle is just as exciting for children as for their parents.

Château les Merles welcomes children who will entertain themselves on the lawns, the playground, and the pool.

The property is just 15 minutes away from the picturesque town of Bergerac, surrounded by beautiful vineyards, with plenty of opportunities for tastings.

Go hiking or cycling in the rolling countryside, canoeing on the Dordogne river or swim in Lac Pombonne located in a beautiful park with a beach.

At Château les Merles all the beauty of the Dordogne comes together.

Location Chateau les Merles

Just 15 minutes from Bergerac, in the hamlet of Mouleydier, Château les Merles is surrounded by green fields and rolling hills. On the castle grounds, you can keep yourself busy all day long:

  • Golfers will enjoy the nine-hole golf course, driving range, and putting green.
  • Sports enthusiasts can use the tennis court and the outdoor pool.
  • Gourmands can reserve a spot in one of the cooking classes in the restaurant.
  • For relaxation, book a massage or beauty treatment

For groceries head to Bergerac, a beautiful village on the Dordogne river; its medieval old town with cobbled streets is perfect for a morning stroll. The newer part of Bergerac is home to quaint shops. On Saturdays, it boasts one of the largest and most colorful markets in the Dordogne.

Les Merles is located on the "Route des Vins de Bergerac", an inspiring route that guides visitors past vineyards, wine-producing castles, and cellars that are open for tastings.

What to do:

  • Visit the 15th-century private castle Château Bridoire, only half an hour away. Admire the old family rooms and be sure to look with the children in the courtyard of the castle where you will find many games for young and old.
  • Drive to the town of Brantôme (1h15) also called the “Venice of the Dordogne”. The old city is built on an island, surrounded by waterways, crossed with old bridges. In the narrow streets, you will find traditional French shops and cafés, and the whole city is covered with flowers. Brantôme is nothing but picturesque.
  • Spend a morning in Monbazillac (20 minutes away). It is a small charming town with a grand castle, Château de Monbazillac, which you can see from the inside. Monbazillac is known for its dessert wine, so, it is not surprising that you can taste and buy wines here at the castle.
  • Explore the medieval fortified towns of Monpazier, Issigeac, and Beaumont-du-Perigord, all within a 30-minute drive.
  • The famous wine town Bordeaux (one-and-a-half-hour drive) and Saint-Émilion (reachable in just over an hour) are perfect destinations for a day out in the city.
  • Spend the day fishing or canoeing on the Dordogne River.


  • Bergerac (15 minutes)
  • Bordeaux (1h45)
