Chateau Charente is a place to renew yourself: a sanctuary for body, mind and soul in a nineteenth century French chateau deep in the countryside of south-west France. Magical, hidden-away Chateau Charente was described by a guest as “a slice of heaven”.

Your experience at Chateau Charente is designed around optimising your personal wellbeing; the owners invite you to make the chateau your private sanctuary. Chateau Charente is emphatically a home, not a hotel. You won’t find a reception desk or suited staff behind a bar. Instead, the belle époque hallways and oak-panelled salons echo to the laughter of the children, while well-loved family pets snooze in the midday sun.

Each of the ten distinctive and beautifully restored en-suite bedrooms represent understated French elegance. Simple, crisp white bed-linen provides a cool embrace from the heat of south-west France.

The chateau sits in its own 11 acre estate of gardens, fields and forest. Try a dip in the fresh-water swimming lake or relax in a deckchair beside the pool. Enjoy a game of tennis on the newly-built courts, or practise yoga in the dedicated studio. You can walk for miles into the shaded woods of birch and chestnut beyond the grounds.

Staying at the Chateau
Unwind in understated, elegant bedrooms; savour bespoke dining on the terrace, complete with home-grown ingredients and local Bordeaux wines; enjoy your own private yoga studio, tennis courts, swimming pool and lake; lose yourself in the twenty-two acres of gardens and woods, with miles of walks into the countryside beyond.

  • We celebrated our wedding at the Chateau Charente.
    The grounds were perfect: the numerous rooms and the spaces at our disposal are perfectly suited to any reception or ceremony.
    Our host Alexis was available, welcoming, caring, attentive, to make all these moments unforgettable. We felt so good there that we stayed there for a week after the wedding.
    We can only recommend!
