Description

Marthon Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Stone built airy and light Chateau with beautifully designed interiors.

Chateau de la Couronne sits in 5 acres of private grounds on the edge of Marthon, a lovely village on the border between the Dordogne and the Charente.

It manages the balancing act of being beautifully designed and luxuriously appointed, yet immensely family friendly and fabulous for children. Featured in design magazines and travel media around the world, the Guardian Newspaper called it 'one of the top 5 houses to rent in France', and Grazia Magazine called it 'Kick your shoes off comfy'.

Outside in the 5 acres of private grounds is a 14.5m x 6m heated swimming pool - walled and security gated for safety - surrounded by a paved terrace with plenty of sun loungers. And there is plenty of lawn, as well as two terraces with ample tables and parasols to have a cool drink, log on with the free wi-fi, dine al fresco or even have a barbecue.

Inside four huge salons all with French Windows open onto the terrace, provide airy and light spaces, some with log burners for those autumn evenings.

Further distractions include the Private Cinema with 9 foot screen and surround sound, and a Billiard Room with full size American Pool Table.

The bedrooms are all huge, with very decadent bathrooms - some with two tubs - and all rooms have flat screen TV and DVD player, exclusive robes, fluffy towels and bathing products.

Catering is totally flexible - anything from a one-off celebration dinner to three meals a day every day. You can even agree the menus before you arrive.

For those wanting to self-cater, there is Restaurant standard kitchen with stove, oven, dishwasher, fridges, and sufficient crockery, cutlery and utensils to produce mammoth meals for all your guests and discover the Jamie Oliver in you, and then right next to the Kitchen is an immense Dining Hall with its warm exposed stone walls and enough table space for all 26 to eat at the same time.

And when all that eating and sunbathing and relaxing gets too much, there's plenty to do in the surrounding area too. There are tennis courts in the village just 500m away, and two Golf Courses within a few minutes drive, as are an Adventure Park with tree walks, bungee jump and zip wires, a championship level Karting Track where you can perfect those racing lines, and some great Kayaking. Or maybe take a drive and go Cognac or Wine Tasting, visit some Chateaux, or hire some bikes (contact details via the Chateau) and take advantage of the many pretty cycle paths around our village.

Access to the Chateau excellent, with Limoges, Bordeaux, Bergerac and Poitiers airports all within two hours. At Angouleme (20 minutes from the Chateau) is a TGV Rail Station, with high speed trains to Paris in 2hrs 15 mins.

About Nicky Cooper

We are Nicky and Mark. We moved to France 12 years ago with our two sons, and set about renovating Chateau de la Couronne, which we opened for exclusive private rental ten years ago.

Why Nicky Cooper chose Charente

Chateau de la Couronne is a very warm and inviting place - the most common comments we get are that the photos don't do it justice, and that people feel at home within a few minutes of arrival. Which is pretty much what we would like to achieve always!

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Many Chateaux can be run down, dark and - well, a bit tatty.

Not here.

The Chateau is light and airy - massive window areas ensure this - and it offers a huge and flexible place to relax and enjoy. The decoration and furnishings are more boutique hotel than traditional Chateau.
