General Description

The domaine shares the estate with the chateau and the etables, however each property has its own private terrace, swimming pool and grounds. This is a wonderful chateau holiday experience that will exceed all your expectations.

This 17th century chateau in Charente, set within 12 acres of parklands and gardens in sunny Southwest France, is a delightful holiday home or wedding venue with beaches, shopping, and wine and cognac tours within a half hour of the estate.

Open and airy, there is plenty of room to spread out and relax. Stone walls and wood beams give it a traditional, rustic feel, but with the convenience of modern amenities you’ll feel comfortably at home. An open floor space connects the dining room, living area, and updated kitchen, complete with a breakfast bar - making it easy to come together for socializing. 

Five inviting bedrooms are split across two levels, with room for 10 guests plus a baby (toys and baby equipment are available).

Toast the good life on the covered terrace while the kids play on the lawn or swim in the private pool. The BBQ on the decked patio makes for fun alfresco lunches, and there are bicycles for hire for mid-day rides.

Just 6km away you’ll find restaurants, ancient castles and medieval churches in the town of Pons. If travelling with kids, check out the treasure hunt theme park, La Chateau des Enigmes.
