At this elegant 15th century chateau in Charente, guests will enjoy a peaceful holiday in the French countryside while taking advantage of a wealth of luxury amenities on site.
Once the country retreat of the Fleury–Michon family in the late 18th century, the chateau is exquisitely decorated in traditional French decor, including plush furnishings, ornate wallpaper, and marble fireplaces.
There are plenty of inviting spaces for socializing: from the cozy living room, the large modern kitchen, and formal dining room to the games room, complete with a billiards table, babyfoot, and table tennis. Perhaps one of the most popular features is the indoor pool, enclosed by a wall of windows for swimming year ‘round.
Five charming bedrooms containing en suite baths can sleep up to 13 guests. For larger groups, the estate has an additional cottage available to rent, accommodating a total of 17 guests.
Outside guests can enjoy BBQ lunches within the acre of private parkland, then take advantage of the full-size tennis court, badminton, and bikes available. You'll also be within close proximity of points of interest, like the primate park, market town of La Rochelle, and picturesque island of Ile de Re, all within an hours drive.

Features

The chateau itself comfortably accommodates up to 13 guests in its 5 en suite rooms and the nearby cottage can be rented when more space is needed for groups of up to 17.
On the ground floor is a large spacious living room with TV and original marble fireplace and light fixtures. The dining room is furnished with original marble fireplace and oak panelling. The sizeable American-style kitchen with dining table comes complete with double ovens, eight ring gas hob, dishwasher and microwave.
On the first floor is a double with en suite bathroom, a double with shower room, a double with shower room and extra single bed and a family double room with additional 2 singles and spacious en-suite shower room. On the second floor is another double with en-suite shower room.
Surrounding the chateau is an acre of parkland full of chestnut trees. There is a tennis court, a pool table, table tennis table and an indoor pool which is completely enclosed & adjoins the house. Badminton, boules and cycles are all available for guest use. There is also abundant garden furniture and a gas-fired barbeque for al fresco dining. There is also ample parking for cars.
