This magnificent and private Renaissance-style chateau built between 1830 and 1840, was superbly restored in 2005 to create a luxury hotel and gastronomic restaurant. The choice of furniture and decoration have created a warm, welcoming atmosphere. The result being a peaceful and sumptuous place to relax and enjoy all that the region has to offer.
South-facing, all the rooms are superbly situated with a view of the grounds, the woodlands and the distant hills. All bedrooms can be accessed directly by lift.
The property also has a kitchen garden on a separate plot of land to keep the hotel in fresh veg for the restaurant. Outbuildings include the stables, the hayloft and the servants' quarters. The tractor has replaced the horses! - but the horse boxes and the fodder feeders remain. There is a mini fort dating from the Middle ages, with drawbridge and arrow slits. Partially in ruin, surviving in the woods near the entrance of the grounds but hidden from view.
