Golf, Wellness, Wine Tastings... it is up to you!
The birth of hotel Château Les Merles is not just a coincidence, but the carefully crafted achievement of Dutch owner Jan van Grinsven, always very attentive to the warm welcome of his guests. Constantly supported by his family, he (easily) fell under the spell of the region of Bergerac and the Château Les Merles. Both offering him everything he dreamt of to launch a luxurious and intimate hotel: a charming classical castle; a farmland, a golf course to redesign and, some vineyards. After a long period of restoration, the contrast between contemporary design and 17th-century castle covered with magnificent white stone is a clear success. Simultaneously a golf resort, a charming and luxurious guest house and a star hotel, Château Les Merles offers 15 rooms and 4 villas. Between Sarlat and Bordeaux, just minutes from Bergerac, Château Les Merles is located on the heights of the Dordogne river and offers a picturesque panorama. Activities are multiple for you to relax and make you discover the secrets of the region and local heritage: 9 hole golf course surrounded by vineyards and plum trees, yoga on the terrace, tennis, body treatments, and even cooking classes with Chef Bas Holten. You can simply stroll along the “avenue” of chestnut trees that carry exploding flowers at spring time, enjoy the scents of lemon trees on the terrace or simply sing along with Jan van Grinsven who will be happy to accompany you with his accordeon. In the old barn converted into a gourmet restaurant, you will taste the dishes prepared by the chef where local products are highlighted with vegetables from the organic vegetable garden and wines from the seven Bergerac names that reflect the richness of the soil. How about a carrot and ginger marmalade, cream of morel mushrooms or asparagus on sauted foie gras? Certainly Jan van Grinsven has fulfilled his dream for the greatest pleasure of its guests who can not remain insensitive to its conviviality and joy of living. We could not!
