Description from manager

Owner's description:

Your family may fall in love with the horses on the property of this chateau in Charente, which is replete with the warmth of the countryside. You’ll stay in one wing of an updated 17th century castle, where you’ll luxuriate in king-size beds, the wood-burning fireplace in the dining room, and the pastoral views stretching out beneath the chateau.

The aquatic among you will be pleased; there is a heated swimming pool (shared with other guests), as well as a lake nearby. There’s space to relax on loungers, or you can keep to yourself on your private terrace with a view. Children are both welcome and well provided-for here. The chateau is baby-proofed, and there are toys aplenty. Older kids (and adults) will love the games room, which features ping-pong, a football table, and billiards.

The nearest town is Chalais (5 km), where you'll find a lovely Monday market. Just ask, and our concierge is happy to arrange babysitting and a wine tour for the grown-ups! Wineries dot the landscape here (grapes are grown very near the chateau!), only an hour outside of Bordeaux. Head north instead, and you'll find Cognac in about an hour, a mecca for spirited folks.

chateau is close to the vineyards, between Cognac and St Emilion and not far from the famous village of Aubeterre with its wide variety of products and crafts.

Situated on the borders of the Charente and Dordogne, this Chateau is an ideal spot to explore the beautiful countryside that this part of France has to offer.

The town of Chalais is nearby with its weekly market on Monday mornings and there are an abundance of local restaurants to suit all budgets and tastes.

For wine lovers, St Emilion is approximately a 30 minute drive away. For those who prefer spirits, Cognac is approximately an hours drive away.

For the more sporty, there are plenty of activities, with tennis courts, fishing, canoeing, river-side beaches, play parks and a recently opened karting track all close to the Chateau.

Bergerac and Bordeaux Airports are both approximately an hour drive from the Chateau.

Slightly further away but still accessible are Limoges and Poitiers Airports.

For those arriving by train, the Chateau is located just over 35 minutes south of Angouleme which has a fast TGV connection.

For those driving, the N10 motorway exit at Barbezieux is approximately 30 km from the Chateau.
