This fabulous Maison de Maitre (Master's House) dates back to 1825.

The house has over 600 square metres of living space with high ceilings, shutters and all that you would expect from a property of the calibre but with mod cons such as internet, SONOS sound system, Satellite TV etc.

The major attractions here are the stunning countryside views and the huge (15m. by 8m. maximum depth 3.4m.) pool with diving board, hi tech solar cover and fully compliant double alarm system.

The house has 6 bedrooms 5 of which have en suite bathrooms and one bedroom has a shower room with wc.

The house has internet access, flat screen TV's, DVD players, microwave,dishwasher, sun loungers and a gas BBQ.

We also have a small lake with carp in it.

There are lovely walks through the woodland which is surrounded by sunflowers. There is a...

We stayed in this property in August. We were a party of 14 including Young and teenage children. We had a super time. The property is beautiful, with great grounds & pool. It was sufficiently spacious to accommodate 3 separate families. We would definitely stay...More

Seventeen of us had the time of our lives at this wonderful chateau. Massive rooms and space everywhere meant all the kids could wander around safely. Amazingly well equipped kitchen and a great outside dining table with plenty of chairs meant that dinner drifted into...More

A very quiet, peaceful setting surrounded by fields of sunflowers. The chateau is beautiful, spacious and very comfortable. We are a family of 18 including four generations and everyone enjoyed staying here. The children (aged between 2 -8) and most adults, swam in the pool...More

About the neighbourhood
St. Jean d’Angèly - Medieval market town full of character with leafy squares, timber houses and cobbled streets. The 15th Century clock tower and abbey towers impose on the skyline and the colourful twice-weekly market selling superb regional produce is an assault on your senses. Enjoy a fresh coffee at one of the pavement cafés and soak up the atmosphere.

You will find abundance of restaurants and bars catering for all tastes. Swim indoors at the Atlanty’s aqua centre with 50m amazing waterslide. There are more water sports to be had at the lake by paddling a canoe or kayak. For the less energetic, a round of crazy golf might prove a better alternative. For children with a need for speed, Go Karting offers fast track fun. Afternoons 3– 8pm.
