Château is located in the Haute-Loire region of Auvergne, close to spectacular falaises, forests, and the Allier river and its gorges.
Drive down the tree-lined avenue and take in the beauty of this 15th-century château with its rich heritage, heated swimming pool, and over two hectares of parkland, which sleeps up to 11 guests.
The château, which was built in the early 1400s by the Blau family and has seen many additions over the centuries, has recently undergone an impressive refurbishment, allowing it to become an elegant holiday home while retaining much of its historic charm.
Château, a Historical Monument, combines tradition and culture with exquisite renovations and modern conveniences.

On the ground floor the characterful dining room juxtaposes perfectly with the modernised kitchen, close to the single bedroom, whilst upstairs a graceful grand salon with historic furnishings sits next to the library with its books, games and billiard table.
Climb up the old stone spiral steps to the top two floors for four beautiful bedrooms, each one en suite, all inspired by the château’s past from the 17th century king-size double with views towards the volcanic cliffs to the romantic-style pink room with its tapestries, armchairs and south-facing vistas.
Outside, there’s a gorgeous spot with armchairs for watching the sunset accompanied by an aperitif or two whilst you can dine al-fresco in the castle’s courtyard.
The heated swimming pool is another fantastic addition to this historic French château, positioned within the vast grounds which also feature little pathways, ancient trees and glimpses of the Allier, one of France’s longest rivers which meanders nearby.
You will feel well looked after during your stay with cleaning nearly every day and options to arrange breakfast and home-cooked meals using fresh, locally sourced ingredients, there’s also an excellent French wine list to choose from.
