The
Experience

A delightfully hospitable couple who love having people to stay. Their beautiful, mainly 17th-century, château has a gently fading grandeur and is surrounded by magnificent parkland. Perfect for families, it’s a children’s paradise with a large swimming pool, plenty of safe space in which to roam and explore and a fascinating pigeonniere. From the dramatic hall the superbly bannistered staircase sweeps you up to the salon gallery that runs majestically through the house and provides a huge space in which to relax – sit, read, dream of benevolent ghosts… The two double bedrooms burst with personality and are roomy and comfortable; children’s rooms interconnect. Madame’s hand-painted tiles adorn a shower, her laughter accompanies your breakfast (organic garden fruits and four sorts of jam); Monsieur tends his trees – he’s a fount of local wisdom and is happy to chat about the history of the château too. A warm, wonderful and authentic place.

Reviews

Just as described and a lovely place to stay. We wish we had planned to stay for longer than the one night on our journey.

Maureen, Abingdon

What an absolutely wonderful place and perfect for our 2 night stop-over. With two Children in tow and a granny too, it was a perfectly relaxing, comfortable and hospitable experience. The rooms are well looked after and ooze character so if you are looking for something with French style then this is your place. The owners were so helpful with restauraunts recommendations and cooking up a fantastic breakfast. A great find and would recommend thoroughly.

Local points of interest from Éric & Henriette Le Gallais

  • In Poitiers, the cathedral, the St Jean baptistery, the church of Notre Dame la Grande are all must-sees for lovers of romanesque architecture.
  • In the countryside, the abbey church of St Savin sur Gartempe has a multitude of astounding medieval wall paintings as well as a beautiful building.
  • The technology discovery park of Futuroscope constantly grows and improves: it's a brilliant pedagogical resource.
  • The Château de Touffou in Bonnes is a magnificent building with fine gardens, that is now owned by the Ogilvy family, descendants of David Ogilviy, 'the father of advertising'.
  • Sometimes, with a little luck, by looking through the window of your room in the morning, you will see some roe deers cavorting on the lawn
  • In summer, you can admire the kitchen, completely ecological garden and in particular several varieties of sometimes surprising tomatoes
