  • Description


    Based in rural southern France, about 40 minutes from Bordeaux and in the heart of the wine producing region, Chateau is a Napoleonic chateau.
    Our home also hosts a number of pets - both inside and outside of the chateau. We have dogs, cats, a parrot, chickens, goats and some beautiful peacocks that roam the grounds, helping to make Chateau a unique destination for traveller and staff alike. The chateau also boasts a swimming pool, a natural lake for swimming complete with paddle board and two professional standard tennis courts for those keen on keeping fit.

    The area is very rural so it is recommended that you have your own transport, but we can collect you from the nearest train station if you would prefer. There are plenty of vineyards to visit, as well as Bordeaux, Angouleme and Cognac all being less than an hour away from the Chateau. The chateau has wifi for residents. There is a restaurant and shop within easy walking distance, as well as a bakery.
