Enjoy a stroll around the parkland, an in-house massage, or a leisurely lap in the pool, then gather for lunch in the shade of the veranda. The living is easy… and if you want to be further spoiled, a chef will prepare meals as often as you like.
The kitchen is fabulously equipped, the salon is sumptuous, and the bedrooms are upstairs, spread across three floors. All are impeccably furnished and decorated. If you’re a foodie and like to cook, there’s an excellent Friday market in Richelieu, a short drive, and an enticing farm shop that opens at weekends.
Vineyards, wine tastings and Loire châteaux abound – Chinon, Poitiers, Saumur and Tours are reachable within the hour. This is a perfect place for a big celebration (and ask Victoria about reduced rates for smaller groups) – the caretakers, who live in a house in the grounds, can organise any outing you like.
