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.

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.
