Everything you could ask yourself before booking one of our accommodations.
Where are the chalets located?
Biron has a grocery shop that also serves lunch. For larger purchases, there is a supermarket 10 minutes away in Villeréal. If you'd like to sample the local produce of the Périgord region, there are plenty of markets in the area - just ask us for the programme!
Do you want to arrive with a full fridge? We can provide you with an arrival hamper, which you can order when you book.
What are the arrival times?
Arrivals are between 4pm and 8pm and departures between 8am and 10am. In high season, arrivals and departures are on Saturdays or Sundays (depending on the accommodation booked) and Wednesdays. In low season, arrivals and departures are on the day of your choice.
In July and August, you can avoid traffic jams by booking from Wednesday to Saturday or Sunday of the following week, and enjoy 10 days' holiday instead of just one week.
What will we find in the rental properties?
The day of your arrival, the chalet or safari tent is cleaned, the refrigerator is on the way. We provide you bed and kitchen linen… but not the bathroom linen ! If you wish your beds to be made upon your arrival, we offer a paid option to be checked when booking.
The kitchen is fully equipped:
and all the necessary dishes!
In The bathroom, all the chalets have a shower and a sink and the toilets are separate. The safari tents also have their own bathroom and toilet for added comfort. As for our tree house, toilets are in the bathroom on the ground floor, but also upstairs.
Where can we eat?
Castelwood doesn't have a restaurant on site, but we do have a snack bar open 5 days a week. You'll find homemade burgers, vegeburgers, fish and chips, chips, aperitif platters, kebab sandwiches... in short, everything you need to satisfy a small or large hunger! This snack bar is ideal for those who don't feel like shopping the day before departure, or for those who have just arrived.
An aperitif is offered once a week. It's the perfect time to meet your neighbours and our team.
If you'd like to eat out, we also recommend the Auberge du Château, in Biron, which serves authentic, home-cooked local cuisine. A good dose of Périgord on your plate! You can also enjoy a drink on the terrace overlooking the château. If you don't want to take the car, just ask us: we'll give you a shortcut to get there on foot.
For safety reasons, it is not possible to barbecue in front of each chalet. So we're providing an area with shared barbecues where you can cook your sausages, kebabs or corn. There are also large tables next door where you can share your meal with your neighbours. Or, of course, you can enjoy your barbecue in the peace and quiet of your chalet terrace!
Once a week, we organise a communal barbecue. It's a great opportunity for children to make new friends and for parents to chat with their neighbours.
