“Savor your stay at Chateau de Siorac!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2008

The French architect Hector Guimard expressed that "genuine hospitality .... cannot be described, but it is immediately felt". The reality of that statement resonates when one has the good fortune of staying at Chateau de Siorac. My memory is overflowing with all that was absorbed during my week-long stay in June 2008. The images are vivid and rich. From the time of my arrival I was ripe with "listening", eager to hear what secrets the walls of a chateau tracing back to the mid-1500's would share. To my respectful surprise, perhaps the most compelling and indisputable message was realizing the extraordinary and unwavering commitment that the Serranos, the owners, have made in bringing the chateau to its current state of irresistible hospitality. Surely the walls of Chateau de Siorac speak eloquently, inviting guests of today to indulge in the embrace of history, but the results of their labor heighten both the magic and quality of one's stay. Their tenacious attention to detail celebrates the best in taste, graciousness, and congeniality, embedding that message in Chateau' de Siorac's walls going forward! Our party of eight also enjoyed two dinners prepared by the chateau's owners. Each was a culinary delight, reflecting the specialities of the Dordogne region and served with tasteful elegance. What an indulgence to have such personal attention from a skilled and instinctive chef (and his team) right in the dining room of the chateau, where words carved in the stone mantel of fireplace read: "Pax Huic Domui", or translated as "Peace in This House". The property itself is a satisfying temptation as well, offering a pristine swimming pool, charming private patio, lovely gardens and plantings, and horses and goats barned at the end of an idyllic grassy pathway. And the views from the chateau's hillside location are truly picturesque!

Chateau de Siorac is a very special property, and Jose and Diana Serrano are equally special hosts. There is much to explore within easy day trips to other destinations in the Dordogne region, and much to keep one happily content just settling into the ambiance of Chateau de Siorac itself. Treat yourself to a stay!! I am already eager to return.

Have just stayed at this magnificent chateau which has been beautifully & lovingly restored by the owners. Although they live adjoining the building they were in no way intrusive & we felt able to approach them for advice on the local area, However the chateau is by a busy road which means if you need to sleep with windows open you have traffic noise. The outdoor dining area is to the rear of the building which cuts out noise but affords no views of the lovely scenery.

We arranged for the owners to cook for us one night at the agreed price of 45 euros but unfortunately the meal was most disappointing & did not represent value for money. Meals at the best local restaurants cost less & were incredible although the £70 taxi fare was a huge shock.

Finally the bathrooms looked fantastic but one shower didn't work & there was a door broken and jaccuzzis failed to operate.
