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. 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.
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!
