The Chateau offers luxurious accommodation to sleep a maximum of 16 in its 8 stately en-suite guest rooms. The Keep provides overnight and weekly rental options with sumptuous entertainment for guests.
The Count, who has owned the Chateau for many years, could not be more welcoming. This is a jewel of France's architectural heritage, and any visitor to the Chateau will be delighted and charmed by the experience.
Interestingly, the Black Prince imprisoned the French King, Jean le Bon, in the castle’s keep after the battle of Poitiers in 1356. For larger groups it is possible to rent the keep in conjunction with the chateau to sleep groups of up to 40 guests.
Interior and grounds
The keep has 8 bedroom suites to sleep 16 guests. Each of the luxury bedrooms has an en-suite bathroom. There are 2 bedrooms on each of the 4 upper floors. Each of the bedrooms has its own character; large fireplaces, stained glassed windows, four poster beds and classic medieval furniture.
On the ground floor of the keep there is a fantastic living room, dining room and kitchen. The keep is rented on a self catering basis. However, you are able to take meals in the grand hall of the main chateau.
The keep and castle are surrounded by a dramatic moat, a lake where one can fish, and the superbly maintained gardens. There are also excellent bird watching opportunities within the estate.
