    About Chateau des Vigiers 4*

    Hotel

    Chateau des Vigiers is a renowned 4* luxury hotel, spa and golf resort set in the stunning countryside of southern France. This beautiful 16th century chateau is situated in the wine region and offers quality dining, first rate facilities and an extremely high standard of accommodation. In addition to the stunning chateau, guests also have the opportunity to stay in the more modern Relais des Vigiers.

    In 2015, Chateau des Vigiers was awarded France's Best Golf Hotel at the World Golf Awards. 

    Golf courses

    Onsite you have the 3 loops of 9 – La Vallee, Les Vignes and Le Lac, which make up Golf des Vigiers. Opened in 1992, this spectacular course was designed by Donald Steel, a well-respected and renowned golf course architect. The resort promotes fast play and accessibility for higher handicaps - however the fast greens and thick rough can prove to be a test for anyone looking to play golf in France.

    Location

    Chateau des Vigiers is situated in Monestier, Dordogne, approximately 1 hour east of Bordeaux and 20 minutes southwest of Bergerac Airport.

    Chateau des Vigiers 4* Details

    Chateau des Vigiers hotel information

    Chateau des Vigiers dates back to 1597 and is set in the beautiful terrain of the Dordogne. Within the complex, the venue offers two very different types of accommodation, The Chateau and The Relais.

    The Chateau

    Chateau des Vigiers is known locally as "Little Versailles" and was the creation of Jean Vigiers, a royal judge. The Chateau was completely restored in 1992 and is furnished in a traditional French country house style. The Chateau itself has 25 individually decorated rooms (12 “deluxe” rooms and 13 “Classic” rooms), each with authentic French design.  The Dépendances Suites in particular, use local stone and old beams to great effect.

    The Relais

    Relais des Vigiers is the more modern of the two accommodation types and was built under ECO friendly standards in 2008, using local resources. It has 40 spacious “Tradition” rooms each with its own balcony or terrace with views over the chateau and Golf des Vigiers. Although this venue is very new and modern, each room still manages to maintain a traditional French feel so that you never forget where you are. All the rooms come equipped with an en-suite bathroom, TV, Minibar and WIFI.

    Other superb facilities across the resort include a bar, a billiards room, 2 heated swimming pools, tennis courts and 2 outstanding restaurants specialising in foie gras and truffles.

    Situated in the Chateau, Les Fresques is the venue’s award winning restaurant having earned a Michelin star at the beginning of 2014. The restaurant serves fresh local delicacies and offers an extensive wine list. The La Chai brasserie is located a few yards from the Relais in the old wine making building.  Here guests can enjoy some of the regional specialties as well as lighter lunches, either inside by the open fire, or on the outside terrace amidst the stunning surroundings. The resort also has a bar (Le Club) which is open every day until 2:30pm – perfect for having a drink after an exciting round of golf.

    Chateau des Vigiers also produces high quality, award winning wines on its own 17 hectare wine estate. The multilingual staff are dedicated to offering you a professional but unobtrusive service ensuring that your stay there will be both relaxing and enjoyable, both on and off the golf course.

    Spa information

    Within the Relais des Vigiers, they have the Maria Galland Health and Beauty centre where guests can be pampered in professional facials and body treatments, or use the many Spa facilities (steam room, sauna, Jacuzzi and fitness centre). 

    Things to see and do

    Although Chateaux des Vigiers is a hub of activity and culture, outside of the complex guests are able to indulge in numerous activities. If you are looking to experience French culture then there are various markets in the area that sell local specialties and fresh produce. Wine tasting is also considered a must - Bergerac and Aquitaine are considered two of the finest places to enjoy the local wine and surrounding vineyards, including the likes of St. Emilion and Pomerol which are both within an hour’s drive.

    There are also lots of sporting activities in the area which visitors can partake in. These include; canoeing the Dordogne, sky diving, hot air ballooning, go kart racing, water skiing, visiting the local aquarium, horse riding and 10 pin bowling.

    Loved everything about this idyllic place. Les Lacs is the best of the three nines although how to play the spectacular ninth hole remains a mystery!
    The ninth on Les Vignes is the best hole of the 27. Le Vallee needs to mature a bit but does have some challenging holes. Special mention of the staff who were uniformly pleasant and professional.

    A charming Chateau in a delightful setting surrounded by 3 very individual 9 hole courses. Great food, excellent accommodation ( I favour the new block for the larger rooms and great bathrooms over the chateau accommodation - but that's just personal ) Bergerac is close by and offers diversion and some excellent restaurants
