Your woodland rental awaits you for an unusual stay in the Dordogne

To you who like holiday villages for their friendly aspect, for the swimming pool and barbecues with friends. For you who want to go to the swimming pool whenever you want during your vacation. For you who want to cook, have private parking and sleep in a 100% comfortable room while enjoying the atmosphere of a campsite. For you who like the hospitality of a gîte or a guest room, meals with neighbors, but who do not want full board. For you who want to discover the Dordogne and its many tourist places without booking hotels during your next vacation. And finally to you, too, who have children dreaming of only one thing during their vacation: making friends and enjoying activities or entertainment like in a vacation club.
In our gîte village, you can do all of this at the same time, while enjoying incomparable comfort and unparalleled tranquility. At Castelwood, you don't need to choose, and that's the strength of our gîte estate.

So come for your holidays in our chalet village, in Biron, in the south of the Dordogne. Book your rental in the heart of Périgord, close to the charming castle and explore the streets of the village of Biron on foot, following a path that our hosts will show you – they know the area like the back of their hand! When you wake up, you will hear the sounds of nature from your room. In the kitchen, you will see the animals of the Dordogne valley through the window. At Castelwood you will feel good and have a relaxing family holiday. You can visit Sarlat and the big towns of the Dordogne, far from the hustle and bustle of tourist places. And that is priceless !

The right village for your holiday in the Dordogne

Castelwood is neither a gîte, nor a hotel, nor a campsite, nor a holiday village in the strict sense of the word... It's a residential leisure park (PRL) made up of chalets and safari tents, which combines the advantages of many tourist accommodations. But our estate could still be defined as a holiday village, with one difference: the tranquillity of the forest sets it apart from more traditional holiday villages.

What's more, our chalets and safari tents are comfortable and set in the heart of nature: they're the opposite of PRLs, which are often made up of mobile homes. So if you're looking for an unusual holiday in the Dordogne, Castelwood is the place for you! What are you waiting for to book your rental in our holiday village?

A rental village in the Dordogne, a family affair

Our story begins with a meeting of Maaike, Jean-Guillaume, Jaya and Charlie Niemeijer, the founders of Castelwood. A meeting of the heart where the estate exudes an incredible journey.

We, (your hosts) Stéphanie and Jean-François, in search of a second life, were picked up during our first visit! Today we walk in the footsteps of the Niemeijer family, grateful to have imagined such a beautiful place.

Through our ideas and our taste for decoration, we in turn make it a little gem...Come and join us quickly and discover our high-end chalet with its private SPA! A bubble of oxygen awaits you!

A holiday village that limits its impact on the environment

​Nature reigns in our gîte estate in the Dordogne. It is rich, flourishing, deep and envelops you in immeasurable calm for your stay. This is why we must preserve it by offering you ecological vacation rentals. Thus, in each accommodation you will find the right actions to preserve the environment, the taps and showers are water efficient and we invite you to sort waste during your stay. In addition, the entire area is organized to limit its impact on the surrounding environment: in our holiday village, we live alongside the local fauna and flora. Our natural and unique accommodation, made of wood, awaits you in the heart of the forest for an unforgettable vacation.
