Close your eyes… and imagine yourself from sunrise to sunset, being able to go on the terrace of your chalet in the middle of the woods, with the only sounds of the wind in the trees and the songs of the many birds. Well that’s what you experience every day at Castelwood! Be careful, you quickly get a taste for it! In addition, the geographical location of Castelwood will allow you, without traveling too many kilometers, to discover all the wonderful places of this beautiful region so rich in history (special mention to the nearby castle of Biron). If the outdoor setting is idyllic, with its swimming pool, children’s games, barbecue area, the interior of the chalets is a success of sobriety and functionality. And if, like us, you had left your four-legged friend in the good care of friends, you can console yourself with the bosses’ Labrador, he is tireless in the field of hugs and petting! A sweetheart ! You see nothing is missing!

The reception, hospitality and hygiene are top notch! Everything was present in the chalet and there is also enough for children to do! We went on outings in the mornings and in the afternoons we lay at the beautiful pool with our children. An ideal combination of culture and fun for the kids! Originally I was afraid to rent a chalet. You see it more and more… dirty dishes, dusty rooms, cobwebs, broken stuff… But at Castlewood you can’t see any of this! Everything is spick and span. Clean bathroom, clean dishes, everything neatly put away… Even the patio chairs are washed on arrival! What a relief, you can start your holiday right away. For hygiene I give a 20/10! A big round of applause to the cleaning people!

The peace and quiet of the domain but within easy reach of places of interest. The chalets are fully equipped to a high standard. Spacious accommodation, well equipped, well insulated, excellent design. Even in the periods of rain, the veranda was a welcome space to continue to unwind.

We spent a week with the family on the Castelwood estate. The chalet is very well equipped. The domain includes about fifteen accommodations. The layout of the chalets is thought out so that you can’t see your neighbor. The pool area includes a large pool and a paddling pool which are both well maintained. The owners are very welcoming and available. The region is full of marvelous sites. We recommend it.

Small village of 16 chalets in a wood surrounded by nature and calm, very well equipped chalet (just like at home), very good bedding. Common area for barbecue and playgrounds. Nice swimming pool and paddling pool for small children. Possibility of ordering bread and pastries every day. Variable wifi speed. Warm welcome. A vacation spot to remember.

A peaceful and restful place. The chalet has everything you need. Great location to base yourself to visit all the main attractions in the area. Friendly and helpful hosts have thought of everything. Would recommend it.

We rented a vacation home here. We are certainly not the pickiest people, but hygiene is first on our list! You sometimes see houses left dirty after cleaning, but at Castlewood this is not the case! Everything was perfect and everything was spotless! In the kitchen you have everything! Coffee maker, toaster, oven, microwave,… everything was there! You also have the swimming pool, which is clean, well maintained, suitable for children… Don’t want to go to the bakery? The bread is delivered to the domain… snackbar, ice cream,… everything is there! We had a fantastic vacation. We and our kids really enjoyed it! I cannot recommend Castelwood highly enough. Maybe next year again!

We spent one week at Castelwood in July 2021 with our two kids. The location is excellent to explore the Dordogne. The wooden cabins are cleverly designed, provide two large bedrooms, a proper kitchen and a balcony (terrace). The pool was excellent for both kids and adults. Other things that we enjoyed in the park: fresh bread in the morning, the bbq’s, the organized drink on Sunday, a walk with a local guide and the picnic tables. The park is clean, well organized and the owners are friendly. Highly recommended!

Superb! We had a wonderful week. The superior chalet is quite charming. Well built, well done sir! At the time we stayed, it was absolute tranquility. We were lucky enough to see a deer go by two mornings in a row. Super nice terrace. The delivery of fresh bread every morning is a real plus. Badminton, ping pong table, table football, swimming pool, books available and a television. A place full of charm only 1 km from the Biron castle. Thank you for your welcome and congratulations for your concept.
