Charming Chateau with modern pool, terraces, garden and private parking space

Property type chateau / country house

About the property

Private characteristic chateau and modern swimming pool, sleeps up to 10 persons

Having good food with a glass of excellent wine, enjoying regional delicacies, splashing in the pool, enjoying the after dinner quietness, walking in the unspoilt countryside and listening to the silence; it's all possible in and around our country home.

If you want "just" a lovely private vacation, or if you have something to celebrate with family, friends or colleagues, then this is a great location for it. Typically French, and located in one of the last areas without mass tourism. You are welcome to celebrate one or more weeks of vacation in this great holiday home, which is suitable for groups up to 10 persons.

The holiday home is surrounded by a park-like garden with swimming pool. Beside the pool there are lovely terraces (with sun beds), and when the heat becomes too much, there is always a possibility to cool off in the shade of the large trees. In the walled garden are various seating areas with garden furniture.

On the ground floor you have access to: a large living room and an additional living room with television (Dutch, German, English) and a large kitchen with all appliances. There is also a 2nd (small) kitchen with an extra fridge, an electric cooker and a washing machine. On the ground floor there is a double bedroom with a private shower, washbasin and a separate toilet.

On the 1st floor there are two single rooms and three double bedrooms and two bathrooms, one with bath, both with toilet. The, in total seven, single and double bedrooms were kept in the original style, each with its own atmosphere.

The Area

The château is situated on the edge of the charming village of Arfeuilles in the department Allier in central France. In this clean and quiet environment you will really have a relaxing holiday.

You can walk, cycle, swim and canoe to your heart's desire. But you can also 'shop until you drop' in Vichy, Clermont-Ferrand or Lyon, roam brocantes for bargains or visit one of the many medieval castles and villages. The French people, in this area, are particularly hospitable and open minded. This is the reason why you can quite easily communicate with them, if you feel like it. In short, there's something to do for everybody!

Within walking distance, in the village, is a bakery, supermarket, cafe / restaurant. The area is ideal for hiking and cycling (routes available on site). You can also visit the castles in the region. In Vichy (famous for its thermal springs) you can still experience the cosmopolitan atmosphere of the past. Clermont-Ferrand and the Puy-de-Dôme provide excellent possibilities for day trips.The area is ideal for all kinds of (sports)activities in nature. The landscape is hilly / mountainous with forests, rivers, volcanoes and of course castles.

France has traditionally been known for its fine cuisine. There are also numerous options for eating out, from a simple meal in a village pub to a sumptuous dinner at a fancy restaurant. People are proud of delicacies from their own region, and it is therefore, that they very often use local products to cook, such as the meat of Charolais cows, cheese from the Auvergne and wine from Saint-Pourcain. In Lapalisse there are several restaurants such as Le Moulin Marin which is located in a converted mill. But even for a simple pizza you can visit this village. In Le Mayet de Montagne you dine in the cozy Vielle Auberge with its traditional cuisine food. The French are accustomed to dine elaborately at noon. You can also visit many village pubs for a "plat du jour" (daily meal). You will get an excellent meal for a very reasonable price.
