Chartreuse Le Cariol – Living Gallery

Chartreuse Le Cariol is the perfect place for holidays, full of artistic inspiration and lots of fun for the kids. Here in the beautiful French countryside of the Dordogne, we have completely restored an old 12th century Chartreuse in its original style. Only 20 minutes from Bergerac airport, easily accessible with flights arriving with Transavia, Flybe and Easyjet.

At Le Cariol we have two luxury fully equipped suites and a family cottage. From your own private terrace you can enjoy the most beautiful sunsets, while sipping a good glass of wine. For evenings of relaxation, our swimming pool and pool house are the perfect setting. We often enjoy fires in the open fireplace in the pool house. You can also relax in the sauna, the wood fired hot tub or enjoy a yoga class or massage.

We wholeheartedly welcome you to our home. Marthijn’s art is displayed on the whole property for you to enjoy. During spring and summer there is a chef available for breakfast, lunches and table d’hôte dinners. In July and August we invite you to join us at least once a week to have an Artist Dinner under the chestnut tree. Our wonderful chef will do anything possible to offer you a culinary surprise! For the rest of the year a private chef is available on demand. Wireless internet available.
