All you can ask yourself before booking one of our accommodations.

What are the opening dates?

The domain is open from 01/04 to 31/10.

What are the arrival times?

Arrivals are between 4 pm and 8 pm and departures between 8 am and 10 am. In the high season, the arrival and departure days are Saturday or Sunday (depending on the booked accomodation) and Wednesdays.
In July and August, you can avoid traffic by booking from Wednesday to Saturday or Sunday, of the week after, to enjoy 10 days of vacation instead of just a week.

Where can we eat?

Castelwood does not have a restaurant on site but we have a snack bar open 4 days a week: Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. You will find homemade burgers, vegeburgers, fish and chips, fries, appetizer platters, kebab sandwiches… In short, everything you need to satisfy a little or a big appetite! This snack is convenient for those who don’t feel like cooking the day before departure or those who have just arrived.

Once a week, an aperitif is offered. That’s the perfect time to meet your neighbors but also our team.

In the high season, we organize a brunch every Sunday to start this beautiful day in a friendly atmosphere. Healthy, local and organic: enjoy!

We also recommend the Auberge du Château in Biron. This restaurant proposes you a local, authentic and homemade cuisine. A good dose of Périgord on your plate! You can also have a drink and enjoy the terrace overlooking the castle. To avoid having to take the car, ask us: we will give you a shortcut to get there by foot.

Shopping

Biron has a grocery store that also offers meals at noon. For more important groceries, a supermarket is 10 minutes away in Villeréal. To taste the Périgord terroir, multiple markets are also organized in the region, ask us the program!

Do you want to arrive with a full fridge? We will provide you with groceries, which you can order when you make your reservation.

Barbecue

For safety reasons, it is not possible to barbecue in front of each cottage. We offer you a space with shared barbecues to cook your sausages, skewers and corn. Besides, large tables allow you to share your meal with your neighbours. You can also, of course, enjoy your grilled food on the quiet terrace of your chalet!

Once a week we organize a common barbecue. It is a convivial moment and a good opportunity for the children to make friends and for the parents to chat with their neighbors.

Bread

We bake our bread and pastries on-site every day! Order it in advance and it will be delivered in a small locker in the name of your cottage.
