a Little Out of The Ordinary…

What makes the Château so special is not quite fully understood. Just being in and around the grounds is like food for the soul. From the superior comfort of the rooms to the luxurious surroundings of the grounds and scenery beyond.

Having all of your luxury needs met – from private swimming to BBQs, from sports and physical activities such as tennis and skiing to stunning walks and impeccable nature, from children’s games to sightseeing, fishing and wine tasting – and delivered in such an exquisite and traditional style, whilst being removed from urban living is quite the unparalleled feat, and yet it’s a certain je ne sais quoi that makes The Château, and time spent here, just a dream come true.

The Château is nestled in a five-acre park in the Cevennes mountains and has the river Luech flowing along its boundary. It was built in 1575 and comprises three beautiful towers with turrets. The castle has retained all of its charm including its original features and the decor of the interiors has been carefully selected to marry the style of the Château perfectly.

There is a substantial terrace around the Château for dining, and set within the private grounds is a large heated outdoor swimming pool. The pool area with is fitted with cuisine d’ete, a terrace for BBQs and a changing room and WC.
