Ferry de Kok
We, the Meiland / Renkema family, started our new adventure in February 2019 in the village of Beynac, eight kilometers from Limoges, the city famous for its porcelain. You might know us from the Dutch version of the program '' No going back" in which we were followed in 2006 during the renovation of a castle and in 2007 while actually running a B & B in the castle.
Years later, when the kids were grown, we again started searching for an inspiring location further south and after about two years we found this beautiful family-estate. The central location near a great city like Limoges and the peaceful surroundings of the castle were exactly what we were looking for.
In the morning you can enjoy an extensive French breakfast on the sunny terrace or in the cozy
The estate is situated on 8 hectares of land consisiting of forest and meadow. Via a forest trail you reach the river Vienne.
The outdoor pool is surrounded by a terrace with comfortable sun beds. Here you can enjoy the sun and have a refreshing dip in the water.
Free Wi-Fi is available in and around the Castle.
