The reinvention
of a 13th century château

A family home for many generations Château de la Bourlie sets the scene for a new interpretation of castle life, sharing aesthetic, philosophical and lifestyle values.
La Bourlie is not hotel but a luxurious sanctuary for rejuvenation in a cultured and naturally beautiful environment. Château owners, the Commarque family, cultivate their brand of « art de vivre » to create an elegant yet effortlessly relaxed atmosphere. Playing host to a secret society of artists, researchers and writers, Château de La Bourlie aims to serve a noble cause: to work together, mindful of humanity and nature, providing a catalyst for positivity .

An Independant Domaine

Château de La Bourlie lies within the pristine and protected environment of the Périgord noir in the heart of the Dordogne valley. Surrounded by 600 hectares of gardens, rolling meadows and woodland, La Bourlie is immersed in nature, inviting peaceful reflection. The château’s golden stone walls are typical of the périgourdine region, adding infinite timeless charm and warmth.
An enchanting atmosphere reigns, in the citrus tree lined courtyard, the old rose scent of the gardens, and as sun sets over the pool. The domaine is comprised of the main château « La Bourlie », a converted tobacco barn « Les Bories », a mill « Le Pressoir » and « Le Camp D’Oro » glamping in the park.

Château life

The Commarque family have two great loves, culture and agri-culture, passionately shared through creativity and innovation. Dual influences art and nature are ever present, reflected in interior design through vibrant use of colour and texture, together with an exciting mix of contemporary, mid-century modern and antique pieces. Artisanal crafted pieces are derived from timber felled and cured on the estate.
Mindful of its own precious natural resources, Château de La Bourlie strives to achieve a low impact footprint respecting it’s exceptionally well preserved biodiversity.

The Legend

Home of a thriving, spirited and alternative family for more than 800 years, successive generations have in turn constructed, revolutionised, and modernised Château de la Bourlie. Today Chateau de La Bourlie flourishes in the image of its inheritors, Cyril de Commarque, an artist and his wife Ortensia Visconti di Modrone, a novelist.
Both philanthropic lovers of art, architecture and bohemian good living, Cyril and Ortensia naturally share their particular vision of 21st century château life.
Always in motion, future plans include hosting both cultural and ecological conferences, encouraging an international community of researchers and game changers engaged in sustainable solutions for our planet. La Bourlie is an ode to change, to creation, to sharing and a passion for nature.
