The Château de Lannet Bed & Breakfast is situated in the Périgord Vert region of the Dordogne, in the small village of La Chapelle-Montmoreau, situated in the Périgord-Limousin regional nature park. Built in the 18th century, the castle has been modified a number of times, with the addition of 2 turrets in the 19th century. The former farm buildings even older, with a dovecote entrance porch, barns and a wine cellar that was transformed into a tobacco drying room after the end of the wine trade.
The 650 m² (7000 sq ft) castle has 3 floors and 11 rooms, including 5 completely renovated rooms (with private bathrooms and toilets) to ensure a comfortable 21st century experience. You can relax in the two living rooms and the library is at your disposal.
The 11 hectare park comprises a French terraced garden, a landscaped garden and 7 hectares of woods.
The park has been planted with a wide range of species: box trees, cedars, yews, etc... and 2 remarkable Sequoias, one of which is 44 metres tall! The park provides a perfect shelter for our abundant local wildlife.
The château is situated in the 'Périgord Vert' (Green Périgord - Périgord is the old name for the region that is still commonly used by the French) part of Dordogne. The château is also part of the Périgord-Limousin regional nature park, which makes it an ideal destination to enjoy nature close at hand.
The Dordogne is the French department with the greatest number of castles and a multitude of typical, charming villages. The outstanding village of Brantôme is only 10 minutes away by car and you mustn’t miss Bourdeilles, Saint-Jean-de-Côle, Villars, and Nontron. The closest cities are Périgueux (35 km to the south), Angoulême (50 km to the west), and Bergerac, even further south (90 km). Each town is very different and well worth the visit.
