Château du Doux

Château du Doux as seen on Escape to the Château DIY

The magnificent Château du Doux was built in 1904 by an ambassador to France and designed by one of the world’s leading 20th Century architects Jean-Louis Pascal. Originally built for entertaining foreign dignitaries the Château boasts wonderful wood panelled function rooms and spectacular views over the Dordogne valley.

The Young family first fell in love with the Chateau in 2008 and since then have invested all of their time, energy and love into renovating this amazing and unique building in the aim of creating a unique and special wedding and events venue with a home from home feel.

The Chateau offers on-site accommodation for up to 70 guests including a modern and luxurious Bridal Apartment as well as 17 en suite bedrooms within the Chateau. In the adjacent building there are 8 newly renovated, spacious apartments all with self-catering facilities.
