The former servant housing has been lovingly restored to a standard somewhat more luxurious than that of it’s earlier inhabitants would have been used to. The accommodation resides within the walled garden of the Chateau and makes a pleasant and secure environment for children to play. The chateau is located on the periphery of the village and forest, nestling amongst vineyards, apple orchards and sunflower fields giving access to wonderful scenic walks around this typically French Provincial village. The Lodge and Cottage are conveniently located within the grounds but are self enclosed for privacy. From here you will be able to walk to the supermarket, boulangerie (lovely hot fresh bread daily plus local delicious pastries) and other usual conveniences. There is a separate play and camping area with badminton and racket ball and there are skittles and a paddling pool for smaller children. The Lodge sleeps up to 14, cots and high chairs are available. Once the coachmen would reside here to ferry their nobility to their destination. Today life is much more relaxed.

The lodge has been tastefully furnished with local antiques and completed with modern conveniences. We have taken care to conserve the many natural features within the Lodge, particularly the exposed masonry and oak beams. The interior has a rustic country theme which we think is in keeping with it’s character. The Lodge will particularly suit families holidaying together, whilst being large enough to retain individual privacy. The entrance to the lodge is via the kitchen, formerly used to provide the residents with their all important daily bread. We have retained the original oak beams and an antique free standing pine dresser and cupboards to give the feeling of a traditional French country kitchen. A dishwasher and washing machine have been provided as well as all the other usual facilities. The salon opens directly onto the garden via french windows. The arched entrance through which the carriages would enter the building now holds many large beautifully crafted stained glass windows. The room is arranged so that all the residents have space to eat together if desired and also there are large sofas to relax after a hard days sight seeing.
