The Experience

The 16th-century château bursts into view from its wooded hilltop, tall turrets and ivy-clad façade towering over the river Anglin. You can saunter down here past the pool and picnic on organic pâté under a 400-year-old oak; just water, trees and birdsong. Inside, read by the fire, tinkle on the baby grand, retire to bed. Deeply comfortable rooms in warm reds, blues and pastels have museum-worthy antiques, plush fabrics, gilt portraits, book-lined walls. Hugely friendly, Madame offers tastings, courses and talks by local savants – and there are gîtes in the grounds. “Simply a delight,” says our inspector, “for anybody at all.”

We have just spent an idyllic 4 nights at Saint Victor La Grand’Maison in ‘La Chambre Grise’ – a truly memorable stay in a lovely part of France that was new to us. Our spacious, well equipped rooms were furnished beautifully with antiques and plenty of books and magazines in a variety of languages. Marie was extremely welcoming and lovely company. Her meals (made with fresh local produce) were a joy. We can’t think of anything we would change… other than improving our own spoken French!

  • There is a tennis court nearby (3km).
  • Special Markets: Foire aux ânes (May) Marché des producteurs de pays (Jun,Jul,Aug)Marché de producteurs de pays (Jun,Jul,Aug,Sept) Foire aux cucurbitacées et légumes rares (14 Oct) Fête de la pomme (Oct)Marché de Nöel (Nov).
  • La Brenne Natural Park, a vast conservation area dotted with lakes & criss-crossed with bridle paths. Too many species of plant & animal to count….a treasure not to be missed. There are organised hikes or you can simply set out on your own with a map.
  • The Abbey of Saint-Savin known as the 'Romanesque Sistine Chapel',the Abbey of Saint-Savin is a World Heritage Site near Poitiers that is famed for its many beautiful and well-preserved 11th- and 12th-century murals.
  • Summer sees a 2 month Chopin Festival; concerts, exhibits, lectures and theatrical events ommemorate Chopin in the peaceful Berrichon countryside that reminded him so much of his beloved Mazovia in Poland.
