The Experience

A gloriously harmonious place to stay with owners who are passionate about everything they do. He is an architect who has cleverly blended 18th-century elegance with contemporary charm. Oak doors, exposed stone walls, cool stone floors…everything glows with loving care. She speaks English and her enthusiasm for house, garden and guests is catching.

You stay in light, uncluttered bedrooms; those facing the road are double-glazed, the split-level apartments are a delight. Play croquet and skittles under the trees, two kinds of billiards, backgammon or mahjong. Plough up and down the pool. Take a book to a quiet spot in the gorgeous garden, you might spot a red squirrel.

The food is a real draw here, all local and organic, served with some ceremony in the candlelit barn, out on the lush garden terrace or in the abundant orangery. If you can tear yourself away there are walks, vineyards and ancient churches to visit. Kayaking too.

This beautiful place feels more like a family home than a 15-bedroom hotel. The owners have a wonderful eye for beauty and they are very friendly and helpful, and the lush garden and the swimming pool are a real treat for a weary traveller.

The neighbourhood

You can walk into the village to stroll around the lake and there's a playground here if you visit with kids. There's an aqua park, zoo and petting farm all within a 30-minute drive. Visit the medieval Merovingian tomb or the abbey at St-Savin with its 11th-century wall frescoes. The Vins du Haut-Poitou vineyard makes Sauvignon. Explore the rivers by kayak. Try the local goat's cheese - Chabichou.
