Chateau overview - owner's description
The charming Chateau de Seyres is ideally located in a small village in the Charente region of South West France.
The charming Chateau de Seyres is ideally located in a small village in the Charente region of South West France, and offers guests a choice on whether they'd like to stay in Medieval splendour or Classical elegance! The property has remained in the same family for several centuries, who painstakingly take care of the place and ensure each and every need of each and every guest is met. Enjoy the spectacular linden tree in its courtyard, as you take in a chateau nestled in greenery that overlooks the nearby valley and woods - the perfect place for a holiday in the South of France.
The chateau accommodates a total of 19 guests in two wings, which are connected by a music room. This room is a great place to meet up with everyone for drinks and nibbles, and entertainment is easy thanks to the Pleyel grand piano, at the disposal of seasoned musicians.
It's the ideal place to stay for family holidays, parties, anniversaries or small weddings, well as for families with children or groups (a maximum of 15 adults can stay at Chateau De Seyres, or 10 adults and 9 children).
The seven elegant rooms have all been decorated by hand and refurbished with a contemporary touch that'll make modern visitors feel right at home. There's a huge attention to detail, including good quality beds (two four-posters) and linen as well as period and vintage furniture. Most of the property's bathrooms have been completely remodeled in 2011 to include (among other things) a large shower. There is central heating for winter use and, should you feel the need, a blazing log fire!
