Location
  • The château began its story back in the 13th century but like many others it later fell into disrepair.

    Its rescue came in 1987 when it was restored back to its former glory and turned into a truly amazing chateau hotel of 21 luxurious suites that are sought after for the exquisite gastronomique experience.

    And as if the amazing wine and cuisine weren’t enough, there is golf, tennis, swimming pool and relaxing country pursuits to entertain you.
