We had an amazing holiday, relaxing for the adults yet still plenty to keep the kids entertained. A very warm & welcoming family run site. We would love to return sometime soon.

Spacious & ideal for our family

Jennifer – Secure Holiday – May 2019

Recommended for a family holiday, even off season there is plenty to do in the surrounding villages.

A peaceful location set among trees. There are many marked trails through the woods and plenty of chateaus (chateaux?) to visit. The cabins have all you need for a holiday.

David – Booking – October 2019

Rest and relaxation.

The perfect place to spend a relaxing holiday. The site is clean and well run and the owners are very helpful. The accommodation was spacious, clean and well equipped. There are so many places to visit in this truly stunning area and Castlewood is the perfect place to stay.

Lovely little chalet in the woods.

This was the perfect place to get away from it all but also be close to beautiful castles and villages. The chalet itself was very well equipped with all the plates and cutlery you could need and it was clean and comfortable. It was a little too dark inside for our liking but was otherwise very pleasant. The kids loved the playground and the games room and I’m sure they would have enjoyed the little pool had we had better weather.

Great relaxation surrounded by the woods.

Being in the woods & the nature feeling you get.

Richard, Canada – Booking – September 2018


The cabin was clean and comfortable. Nice location, peace and quiet but a short drive from many small towns and villages. Everything we needed for self-catering was provided and the hosts were friendly and very helpful when we had car trouble and arrived later.

Anonymous – Booking – September 2017

Great holiday park.

Really good cabins all fully equipped and a nice terrace. Great owners/management who couldn’t do too much to make our stay as good as possible. Lovely pool and kids loved the playground as well as the art class and dinner evening…

Henry E. – Google – June 2018

Lovely place at the foot of a beautiful castle (Biron), beautiful, very clean and fully furnished houses, beautiful swimming pool, friendly and very professional host and hostess, who have many good tips about what the difficulty is to visit in this beautiful, Perigord region not yet spoiled by too much tourism.
