September 2013 we were invited with my fiancé to a friend’s wedding in Dordogne, France. The journey by TGV the French train was not too comfortable but once we arrived the change of climate was a bonus. We had booked a superior room directly at the venue - the Chateau de Pitray which turned out to be a rather spectacular 17th century renaissance castle. The Chateau is located in a 3 acre park right next to the Dordogne River - as it was still warm we even took a swim.
The rooms had a very refined look thanks to the oriental decoration and ours was very comfortable with a nice view over the river.
The welcome of the owners was kind and helpful and this gave the place a relaxed and homely atmosphere.
Eventually we decided to postpone our return journey and stayed one more day discovering the village of Saint Emilion and making a wine tour on bikes in the surroundings.
