A handsome property with great facilities in a quiet and beautiful area. The Italian owners have made this large château very welcoming and comfortable.
This renaissance style château was rebuilt in the 19th century and completely renovated in the 1990s to a high standard. It is set on a hilltop in the heart of the Charente 5km from the pretty town of Chalais where there are shops and restaurants, as well as Monday weekly market. The area is rich in Romanesque architecture, with fine examples in Aubeterre (10km) and Angoulême (54km).
There is horse riding 11km away at Laprade; clients can bring their own horses (stables and ring on site). Clients can hire a helicopter to the many golf courses in the Cognac and Bordeaux areas. The leisure lake of Parcoul (13km) offers canoeing, pedaloes, swimming and bike hire. Kayaking and fishing are possible in nearby rivers. There is a 9 hole golf course at St-Séveri (19km) and an 18 hole at Angoulême (52km). The sandy beaches of St-Georges-de-Didonne (107km) and Royan (111km) are about an hour and a half's drive away.
