You’ll feel surrounded by beauty here in handsome reception rooms with intricate ‘boiseries’, stained glass windows and ceiling plaster moulding. Breakfasts are all organic: homemade smoothies, eggs, ham, avocado toast, pancakes, granola and madeleines. Take a seat afterwards in the drawing room, or have a wander around the landscaped park with its grotto, ornamental bridge, ancient trees, shrubberies and lawns.
The pool sits on a terrace below the château with views stretching over the countryside and a petanque court in the shade. Retire to warm and welcoming bedrooms with plump pillows, potted plants and a desk area; bathrooms are immaculate with organic soaps and fluffy towels. Young friendly staff look after you and there are light meals available at lunchtime and in the evenings.
Protected wetlands are a few minutes away for cycle and walking paths, and an island with a restaurant which you must get to by boat.
