Two centuries ago a French nobleman by the name of Augustin de Vernouillet built the Chateau which is now in the hands of his descendants. Featuring a spectacular entrance hall and an equally impressive ‘grand salon’, this French holiday chateau is perfect for those wanting to holiday in France in luxury and decadence.
The Chateau has recently laid a hard court tennis facility, a private swimming pool, and there’s a generous 70 acres of private grounds for you to enjoy. Perfectly manicured and maintained with rare trees, you’ll be torn between the inside and outside of this luxury French chateau. There are also horses on site! 13 can be accommodated in this lovingly cared for castle where guests have exclusive use of the chateau and all its facilities.
Interior and grounds
On the ground floor the grand hall leads to the salon rouge, which has French windows allowing easy access to the outdoor terrace. The most spectacular feature of the chateau is a grand salon, suitably adorned with period features such as a chandelier, a marble fireplace and ancient tapestries and portraits. The dining room seats 22 and is adorned with period decorations including a collection of fine porcelain from the Far East. There are two kitchens; the smaller is adjacent to the dining room; the other larger one is a spectacular example of a modern kitchen equipped with every possible appliance, finished off with granite surfaces on a central working facility. Another less formal dining room is off this kitchen. The needs of the children have not been forgotten about! In their special corner of the ground floor there are puzzles, books, games and a table tennis table. There is a also a WC.
On the first floor there are 6 bedrooms. 4 have Queen sized beds and 3 of them have en-suite bathrooms. Completing the property is a delightful chapel on the third floor
In the grounds of the chateau there is a new swimming pool and a tennis court. Other facilities include table tennis and badminton or you can catch fish in the pond with the rods supplied.
