A fairytale French castle in a magical setting
Michelin star restaurant
Just 29 bedrooms consisting of 11 rooms & suites, plus 6 farmhouse cottages of 1-5 bedrooms
Domaine des Etangs is a magical French castle that really does seem to be something out of a fairytale. Set in a landscape of waterways and woodland, teeming with wildlife and beauty, the castle itself is a beautiful historic building that has been immaculately restored. The 17 bedrooms are spread throughout the 11th century chateau and a collection of period properties in the grounds, making it a perfect destination to escape the crowds. Spend your days rowing on the lakes or wandering the vegetable garden and farm. As well as being a gorgeous romantic retreat for couples, families can also find their sanctuary here as this is a place that welcomes childhood laughter and nurtures imaginations. Art lovers will also love the art exhibition on the estate and the artwork throughout the property.
The ornamental gardens surrounding the Château are the work of unconventional landscape gardener, Camille Muller. Guests can delight in wandering the grounds, taking in the beauty at every turn and marvelling at the 2,500 m² spiral-shaped vegetable garden which produces an impressive collection of the best seasonal products for the restaurant to serve.
Domaine Des Etangs is a marvellous place for families. There is an outdoor playground that looks like something from a storybook, horse-riding for children aged 3 and up and fishing for those aged 7 and up. Playing is the name of the game here, whether in the playroom that is exclusively theirs, or in the course of entertaining and educational workshops or creative activities.
Set in the heart of the Charente, just 2 hours from Bordeaux, the Domaine des Etangs ranges over 2,500 acres of
protected Nature, spread across forests, grassland and ponds. Nature is at the very heart of this spellbinding property, with woodland that is home to century old trees, boundless meadows where Limousine cows roam and ponds bursting with life.
For anyone looking for an idyllic break in which they can really get away from it all, Domaine Des Etangs is the perfect destination. There is so much to explore and do within the estate and with a Michelin starred restaurant and a luxury spa right at your feet, why go anywhere else?
