Castle with wonderful views and awesome history
I am a bit biased as this chateau was the home of one of my ancestors in the 16th century. I took my 85 year old father there with other members of our family for about a week. It was an excellent base for our side trips to Poitiers, Tours and La Rochelle. In several rooms, here are copies of a well researched book (in French) telling the amazing history of the chateau. Richard the Lionheart and his mother Eleanor of Acquitaine stayed here. It can be a bit cool inside during cold weather because of the 15 foot ceilings but the owner warned us by email and we were prepared. There is an excellent fireplace in the dining room and they supplied enough wood for us to have a roaring fire every night.
It is the quietest place I have ever stayed. There is no noise except wind and the ravens who live in the donjon (old round tower).
The owners do not live on site but communicated (in English) well by email before our visit to supply details. There are small charges to rent bed linens and towels which you reserve in advance (and pay for at the beginning of your stay) and you pay cash for the heating that you use at the end of the visit. Neither of these policies are unusual for rentals in France.
An amazing, relaxing time
We were a group of 16, four families + friends. This was our 4th stay at the chateau. It is an incredible place, so relaxing and calm with lots of activities nearby (we did kayaking + karting)
we keep coming back!
We are a large group of adults, teenagers and children, and we have now stayed in this place three times. We keep returning because the house has a lovely family atmosphere, and is great for relaxing. There is plenty to do without leaving the castle grounds, and plenty of space for everyone to enjoy some peace and quiet. There are nice walks nearby, and the area is interesting. Poitiers is great to visit, and of course, Futuroscope is worth the relatively short journey. The family are working hard to keep the facilities in a good condition, and to make improvements and extend the flexibility of the place.
C’est chaque année un plaisir de recevoir votre groupe d’amis, respectueux des lieux et peut être aussi amoureux de site que nous. Merci pour vos conseils et revenez!
une semaine digne d'un conte de fee
Chateau medieval chaleureux et plein de charme. La vue sur la vallee est sublime et les couches de soleil a couper le souffle... nous etions en famille et avons pu pleinement profiter des nombreux equipements qu offre le domaine (trampoline, piscine, molki ... il y en avait pour tous les gouts!) Encore merci et bravo pour le formidable travail de restauration qu'effectue les proprietaires. – Petit +, le fond de cuisine on se sent comme chez soi ! :)
