Domaine de Bort

Located 8 km from the Paris-Toulouse motorway (A20) and 12km from the center of Limoges, the château de Bort enjoys an exceptional 80ha enclosed landscaped park.

The château de Bort (15th – 19th centuries), the outbuildings as well as the park and its small dwellings are listed in the supplementary inventory of Historic Monuments (ISMH) of France. The chapel, located in a wing of the château, is decorated with exceptional early 16th century wall paintings. It is classified as a Historic Monument by the French Government.

The 80 ha enclosed park is located in the heart of a 1000 ha forest.  The forest and park still belong to the family residing at the château. In spring you will be captivated by the hundreds of rhododendrons and azaleas of all colors.

This ensemble, passed down for 10 generations, has retained its spirit and charm of days past.  You will experience an atmosphere worthy of a Jane Austen novel when staying in one of the rooms at the castle.

The 6 cottages are in close proximity to the château. They are ideal for spending a weekend or a week’s vacation, enjoying the many hikes available on the property or fishing in one of the park’s lakes.

The arrangement of the cottages is perfect for reuniting with friends or family:  whether for family reunions or a holiday amongst friends, everyone maintains their privacy in their home, but can easily meet up to enjoy country meals or convivial moments around the pool.
