Chateau overview - owner's description

This unique estate in Charente, south-west France, consists of nineteen bedrooms distributed across three 17th century chateaux and villas set in twelve acres of beautiful parkland.

This unique estate in Charente, south-west France, consists of nineteen bedrooms distributed across three 17th century chateaux and villas set in twelve acres of beautiful parkland. It's an ideal venue for weddings or celebrations, with each of the three welcoming homes near each other yet enjoying their own private pools and terraces.

Chateau Serbise is the largest of all three, sleeping sixteen guests with eight bedrooms. The characterful grand salon features a rare decorative fireplace, a snooker room will delight all generations and a there's a grand reception hall, ideal for hosting large events. An unpretentious dining room allows families and friends to gather for fine feasts and doors open up to a wonderful terrace, leading to an inviting swimming pool overlooking the vast gardens and parkland.

You'll find a further five pretty bedrooms at Domaine Serbise, a former wine press with a rustic and characterful interior, simple yet comfortable furnishings and a delightful private swimming pool and terrace. The open-plan kitchen-diner and living area has a particularly spacious and airy feel to it, there is plenty of room to relax and guests can easily come together to socialise.

Etables Serbise has six sweet bedrooms, including two in a Rapunzel-like tower plus an inviting living room and a homely kitchen-diner, all furnished with rustic simplicity and comfort. Once again there are many characterful features such as stone walls and wood beamed ceilings as well as a swimming pool surrounded by a shaded terrace and space for children to play.

Whilst the three charming homes are full of history, you will find all the modern conveniences you would expect such as well-equipped kitchens including a dishwasher, Wi-Fi and satellite TVs. They each feature lovely terraces, barbecues and al-fresco eating areas in addition to their own private swimming pools, not forgetting the spacious gardens and parkland for you to explore.

Within 6km can find yourself in medieval Pons with restaurants, small shops and historical sights. Activities in the area include golf, horse-riding and canoeing or hire a bicycle from the estate to explore the parkland and beyond. Beach-lovers only have to travel just over half an hour to the coast – there are long stretches of sandy beaches from St Georges de Didonne to St Palais sur Mer. Wine aficionados needn't travel far either with dozens of wineries and Cognac nearby. This region has a particularly mild climate all year round and it can be one of the sunniest parts of France during from late Spring to Autumn.

Whether a picturesque wedding in beautiful surroundings or a large family celebration, the estate of Chateau Serbise offers you character, comfort and privacy in a glorious historical setting.

Location

The region of Charente is one of the sunniest parts of France and benefits from a mostly sunny and warm climate from April through October. The influence of the Gulf Stream means that winters can be as mild as the Mediterranean. Cognac & Saintes are 15km away and Royan is 25km from the estate. The airports of Bordeaux, Angouleme and La Rochelle are within 1 hours drive and are served by an increasing number of UK regional airports.
St. Genis & Pons are both 5-6km away where there are restaurants and small shops. The nearest beach is only 35 minutes drive. There are 3 golf courses: Saintes (typical UK type club), Cognac (good course, above average) and Royan (reminds one of the Berkshire courses - pine on sand - good course).
The area has many historical sites relating to its past including the periods of Roman occupation, Richard Coeur de Lion and Eleanor of Aquitane, the French Revolution and the Second World War. As the centre of Cognac production, the towns of Cognac and Jarnac are must visits with guided tours around the headquarters of Hennesey, Martell, Remy Martin, Otard, Hine etc.
The coast line from St Georges de Didonne north to St Palais sur Mer has miles of sandy beaches and good fish restaurants. The towns of Royan, La Rochelle and Rochefort are interesting places to visit and are all within one hour's drive.
The area abounds with many fine restaurants, some more expensive than others but all incredible value for money. Many local artisans welcome visits to view their business, including barrel making, wood carving and sculpture, pottery production, chocolate making and many more.
The wine production areas of Bordeaux are within easy reach with the Blaye region only half an hour away and St Emilion just over an hour by car. From the towns of Blaye or Royan it is possible to take a car ferry across to the Medoc.
The city of Bordeaux can be reached in an hour with its good shopping, art galleries, museums and historical buildings. The same can be said for Saintes. Within an hour there are three top golf courses at Saintes, Cognac and Royan with more around Bordeaux.
As well as the obvious sea fishing, river fishing in the Seugne is only 5 minutes away. The Charente only half an hour away. Only 5kms in either direction are good quality local tennis courts. There are several horse stables around providing riding for all levels through the local woodlands. A very local stable provides carriage rides around the lanes of the area. An international length (1.2km long) go-cart track is only 10 minutes from Clerbise. Canoes are available for hire on the local river Seugne.
A busy nightclub is just 5kms away and is open from Thursday to Sunday.
