    Our hotel for the week, the Château des Vigiers, dates back to 1597 and is an internationally renowned luxury hotel, golf and country club situated in the Dordogne Périgord region of south west France, located an hour east of Bordeaux.

    The 27 holes Vigiers golf course, designed by Donald Steel, is set amongst plum trees, oak woods, lakes and vineyards. Donald, who has contributed to many world-famous courses such as the Jubilee and Eden courses at St. Andrews as well as Chantilly in France, designed the course with the château as its centre piece; the 9th and 18th finishing off in front of the château; and many of the other undulating greens offering different perspectives of the château. As well as

    the golf, there will also be four golf clinics during the week, for clients wishing to fine-tune their game.

    Dinner each evening is included within the tour cost for the week. The Dordogne region is famed for its superb gastronomy and produces some of the world’s finest wines and foods such as foie gras, duck and truffles. We will sample the local delicacies at both of the restaurants at Château des Vigiers. Les Fresques is situated in the 16th Century Château and offers a sophisticated dining experience. Le Chai is more informal where we can try local dishes as well as lighter snacks and meals. We will have four dinners in Les Fresques and three in Le Chai.

    On two days, the wines of the region will take centre stage. On Tuesday afternoon we will enjoy wine tasting with the famous St Emilion wines, and on Thursday we have a half day tour of a local Bergerac vineyard, which will include wine tasting and lunch.
