Description from manager

Owner's description:

chateau sits in the popular Ardeche region of south eastern France. For those seeking comfort, character, style and an atmosphere unique amongst our collection, then this medieval castle is the perfect choice for your luxury chateau holiday! This fabulous self-catering chateau is surrounded by medieval ruins providing a truly atmospheric holiday experience.

The chateau, and indeed the whole estate, is protected by the government as a Historic Monument. However, the ancient building has been combined with 21st century touches such as a fully fitted kitchen, hot and cold running water and modern bathrooms with showers. The interior décor is traditionally French but with a few Spanish touches.

The chateau can sleep up to 15 guests in six bedrooms in the main house and a basic studio apartment is also available in a separate part of the ruins if needed, (all of which overlook the medieval ruins).

In addition, from the summer of 2019 a newly renovated tower with two bedrooms and bathrooms is included for 16 to 18 guests including a stunning rooftop terrace where you can sleep out under the stars on warm summer nights. 

There is also table tennis, various dining terraces, a beautiful old open fire and a library.

The walkable Ardeche river is a great spot to picnic, swim or fish. There are plenty of water sport activities locally and the crocodile park nearby is also worth a visit! The nearest swimming pool is just a 10 minute drive away and is great for the kids if they don't fancy the river below the chateau.

Essentials (such as bread and wine) can be found just 2km from the chateau. There are also a couple of good restaurants within walking distance. All the necessary shops, services and restaurants are 4km away in the charming village of Saint Michel de Boulogne. Lyon airport is 100km away.

The area is renowned for its multitude of outdoor activities including horse riding, walking and canyoning on the river to name just a few locally.

The chateau ruins make for the most remarkable wedding venue. A truly unique atmosphere that has to be seen to be believed.

There is no corkage fee for any wine and marquee hire is easily arranged.

Please note that any event rental may be subject to additional charges, venue hire fees and to a higher security deposit, which will be in addition to any published rental rates and fees.
