The Lounge
The lounge has a fireplace which date back to the 19th century. An electric fireplace system will enable you to make the most of evenings around the fire with family or friends, without the trouble to have to carry wood and start the fire...
You will appreciate the 19th century fresco which covers all four walls of the lounge. The theme, “Eden”, is hand-painted on paper as was the practice in prestigious households in those days. This famous wall paper is exhibited in the “Musée d’Orsay” in Paris.

The central tower is arranged as a winter garden and, just next to the lounge, it serves as a doorway out to the garden and the pool. This is the smoker’s area as smoking is prohibited in the rest of the château.
The lounge is extremely light and airy, with large windows opening out onto the parkland. The moulded ceilings, the wood paneling and the oak floor are original and give a genuine atmosphere.

Books and games in the library are at your disposal during your stay.

An English style pool table, a big screen high definition television with Sattelite channels, a blu-ray DVD player plus a Playstation 3 will ensure evenings full of entertainment.

The dining-room :
In the dining room the dining table can seat up to 16 people. As in the lounge, the large windows go to create a light and airy dining room showing off the beautiful moulded ceiling, the original wood panelling and the old oak floor.

The glasses, crockery and cutlery, carefully selected by Sylvia, are at your disposal in the sideboard.

The Kitchen:
The Château kitchen is fully equipped including: an oven, a microwave oven, a hob with 5 rings plus extractor fan, a dishwasher, a large refrigerator, a freezer, an electric coffee maker, a toaster and an electric kettle.

A full range of kitchen equipment, utensils and accessories is provided as well as tea towels.
