WHERE TIME BEHAVES . BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO
Le 1500 is a small group of historic buildings dating back to the Twelfth Century, situated in the heart of Saussignac, a hilltop village on the southerly banks of the River Dordogne in South West France. Owned and operated by internationally renowned artist, Michael F Rumsby and his husband, Lee, who has spent two decades managing some of the world's finest luxury hotels, the property is beautifully appointed with an eclectic collection of antiques and contemporary art. Every aspect of the property has been renovated and designed over several years with one thing in mind - ensuring that guests have a beautifully bespoke stay. Easily accessible from Bordeaux and Bergerac, and a short journey from St Emilion, Medoc and some of the world's finest vineyards, guests can choose from accommodation in one of the private suites or individual rooms. All the guest rooms are ensuite. You'll enjoy a well equipped gym, a poolside kitchen and covered dining area, poolside bar, outdoor cinema, access to the latest technology, including Apple TV and Sonos in the main house and grounds, in addition to being spoilt to bits. From April to December we offer a diverse range of retreat packages for art and wine lovers as well as yoga, nutrition and healing retreats.
The scrumptious restaurant, Le Café 1500, serves freshly prepared, largely organic dishes in a beautifully rustic setting either indoors or outside on one of the shaded terraces. The menu varies each day and has become a go to option for vegetarian and vegan foodies from as far afield as Bordeaux.
The property is a beautiful marriage of contemporary design and medieval history where guests will find a quiet corner to read a book or join the party zone elsewhere. Wander through the village vineyards, work out in the gym, paddle board on the Dordogne river, party by the pool, play golf at the stunning Chateau de Vigiers or sample the magic of our fine local wines and tailored hospitality. Accommodation and Club Days at Le 1500 are an adults-only experience with the exception of the Le Café 1500 which is happy to welcome you and your children.
