Holiday chalet, for an original and relaxing stay

Updated: Jan 9

Ah, the wooden chalet! That cosy, relaxing holiday rental you've been dreaming of. Usually in the heart of nature, in the woods or in the mountains, it's a residence where you can gather with family or friends for a unique stay. Quite different from a basic rental or gîte, the wooden chalet has a particularly warm feel and promises an original holiday.

Choose this unusual accommodation for your next holiday. Imagine yourself in the heart of nature, in France, in a wooden chalet. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, just like in your dreams or in the movies. It's a place where you feel at home, away from the hustle and bustle of the crowds and where the sounds of birds can be heard discreetly.

A handcrafted chalet for an original holiday

Our chalets are not in the mountains; you won't find them in the Alps or Savoie. Not even near a ski resort. No, your holiday chalet is in the heart of nature, in the charming village of Biron, in the Dordogne.

Chalets built by us

We built our wooden chalets ourselves, by hand. We love making these accommodations, using wood to create the perfect place for your holiday. Set in the heart of the Biron forest, our chalets have a unique New Zealand style. Originally from the Netherlands and keen travellers, we've drawn on our different experiences to create wooden cocoons that are ideal for relaxing between visits and activities.

Rent a cottage with all the comforts!

But just because our chalets are handcrafted doesn't mean they don't include everything you need! Each chalet has a 15m2 covered terrace, ideal for getting together with family or friends for a meal or an aperitif. Inside, you'll find 50m2 of living space, with all the comforts you need for your stay: double bedroom, mezzanine with twin beds, fully-equipped kitchen, bright living room... A few steps from your rental, you'll even find a swimming pool and barbecue area. At Castelwood, you have the charm of a traditional chalet, but also all the comforts you need. It's the perfect way to spend an original holiday without missing a thing!

A chalet for a dream holiday

Chalets have been the stuff of dreams for generations. We associate the chalet with wood, nature, peace and quiet. We often imagine them in the mountains, between the ski slopes, or in the middle of nowhere. The Castelwood chalet village is unique, far from the ski slopes but in the heart of nature, in the Dordogne.

Whether you're on a summer or winter holiday, the charm of the chalet remains the same, cutting you off from the world. Whether you're with family or friends, you'll love getting together, enjoying the natural surroundings and waking up to the sounds of the birds. You can also relax as you wish: read a book on the sunny terrace or on the sofa with a blanket, go to the swimming pool, take a walk in the woods, drink tea while watching the birds... But you can also visit the surrounding area, enjoy the barbecue or take part in the many activities offered by Castelwood. Who wouldn't dream of all this on holiday?

Renting a chalet for your holidays allows you to relax in many different ways, and to enjoy the holiday of your dreams. It's up to you to let the peace and quiet wash over you as you do the things you want to do.

The ideal chalet for a holiday in the Dordogne

What could be more original than visiting the Dordogne in winter, when everyone's rushing off to the slopes, or in summer, when the seaside resorts are packed? And what could be more original than sightseeing while renting a holiday chalet in the heart of nature?

Far from the crowds, a relaxing holiday awaits you at Castelwood. But rest doesn't have to mean doing nothing! Castelwood's wooden chalets are perfectly situated for visiting the Dordogne. Around our holiday chalet village, you'll find a multitude of villages, castles, caves, rivers, forests and lakes to visit. The Périgord Pourpre, the part of the Dordogne where we have built our chalets, also has no shortage of sporting activities: canoeing, paddle-boarding, hiking, accrobranche...

And if you're not convinced yet, you'll find some of the most beautiful villages in France in the Dordogne, such as Monpazier and Limeuil, in the Périgord Pourpre, just a few kilometres from your chalet at Castelwood. You'll also find some of France's best-known towns, such as Sarlat-la-Canéda and Bergerac. There's a lot to discover around your holiday chalet!

So, are you tempted to rent a chalet for an original, relaxing holiday, while enjoying some wonderful activities? Believe us, a wooden chalet will give you a magical night's sleep, and being in the heart of the forest will give you maximum relaxation. And what's more, you don't have to get lost in the mountains to find the chalet of your dreams: it's in Castelwood, close to the major towns of the Dordogne, in the heart of France. Seize the opportunity and let your spirit escape for a few days in nature! We look forward to hearing from you, so all that's left is to take the next step: booking your holiday chalet.
