Château de Puycharnaud

Within the heart of the Dordogne, hidden by centuries-old forests, lies the spectacular Château de Puycharnaud estate. First constructed in the 16th Century for Jean de La Ramière, a favourite of King Henri IV, the Château was remodeled and substantially improved by his descendant Jacques, Lord of Puycharnaud in the 1870's, when advisor to the Emperor Napoleon III.

Featuring magnificent staircases, high ceilinged reception halls, and some 50 additional rooms including an oak library and exquisite chapel, the Château is evocative of the graceful symmetrical style of the Second French Empire.

Approached through a private entrance gate, the Château is situated on an elevated swath of green sweeping lawn that runs between rich woods edged by ponds and swimming lakes. Over 300,000 square meters of historic parkland and rose gardens ensure a tranquil and private domain, far from the bustle of modern life. Equestrian facilities and a small golf area weave their way into the natural landscape.
