The
Experience

Lush trees and elaborate gates frame the graceful façade. Nicolas and Christine’s courteous informality permeates their peaceful 17th-century château. Downstairs, ancestral portraits survey antiques, gilt mirrors and fine porcelain; you have the run of the antler-decked billiard room, panelled green sitting room and chandeliered salon. Breakfast in the stately dining room, where table d’hôtes dinners of locally sourced food and wine are also held. Bedrooms are sumptuous: marble fireplaces, high ceilings, fine oak parquet. One, in imperial purple and white, has a new, regal free-standing bath. Another, gorgeously simple, has been redone in contemporary grey and lime green. A third has ravishing views on three sides and walls papered in a beautiful Jacobean print. The terrace leads into tree-studded parkland, home to the estate farm, chapel, and an orchard concealing the heated pool. Stroll through meadows past the Gothic tower to explore bosky riverside paths, borrow a boat from the boathouse. But come above all for the gracious, relaxing welcome of this authentic family château, just 90 minutes from Paris.

Reviews

France at its best. Delightful hosts and superb accommodation. No TV, but who cares. Restful Gods little acre.

Peter, Monmouth

Fantastic stay with Nicholas & Christine - their stunning chateau, in family hands for centuries, simply amazing. Local wine on arrival, each bedroom was unique and stirred visions of French aristos pre revolution - whether three way views of the grounds or down the tree lined drive. Deer and rabbits roam the grounds and although didn't go boating, a dip in the heated pool was perfect after a day's wine tasting. Divine breakfasts of breads, croissants, coffee and plenty more set us on our way each day and were treated to the most delicious dinner by Christine. Highly recommend, will be back!
