Such a beautiful sight as you first glimpse this 17th century château in its parkland setting. The Du Halgouet family admired it for more than a decade before buying it and bringing it energetically back to life. Now, there are lofty reception rooms with painted panels, extraordinary ceilings and pretty antiques, plus a fine ceramic chimney to admire as you breakfast at a large table on local specialities. One bedroom has recently rediscovered ‘grisaille’ frescoes, the suite has river views, all have stunning bathrooms and super comfy beds with artisan made duvets and pillows. A fabulous pool, woods carpeted with cyclamen.

We enjoyed a wonderful seven night stay at the start of September. This is a beautiful property set in it's own grounds and has been renovated to an exceptional standard. You are made to feel welcome from the moment you arrive and we thoroughly recommend this property and look forward to a return visit.
