Chateau de la Couronne - Poitou-Charentes, France
About this Chic Retreat
A traditional turreted Chateau with a stunningly eclectic contemporary interior which has caught the attention of design magazines and books worldwide, Chateau de la Couronne is the perfect blend of authenticity, cool and casual.
There are 9 large, extravagant en-suite bedrooms, sleeping up to 26 people, all in the main Chateau. Every suite is individually designed to blend the original, authentic features of the building with cutting-edge interior design, beautiful objects and works of art.
Set in 5 acres of private grounds on the edge of a pretty village on the Dordogne / Charente border close to Angouleme, the Chateau has an extensive range of facilities, from a heated swimming pool to a private cinema, an honesty bar, huge dining hall, three separate salons and free wireless internet. Whilst the Chateau offers the discretion its more celebrated clients value, the disarmingly unstuffy welcome and attention to detail ensure that within minutes of arrival it feels like a true home from home.
Whether you want to hire a Chateau for a wedding, birthday, family reunion, Girls Weekend or a group holiday, or simply a hotel room for two, Chateau de la Couronne is a unique venue; this gorgeous boutique retreat is perfect for exclusive rental and individual bookings alike.
All 9 suites are individually designed and furnished, large and luxuriously appointed with opulent en-suite bathrooms...some with 2 baths, some incorporating the chateau's turrets. All rooms are in the main chateau building and have LCD TV and DVD player, bathrobes and fluffy white towels.
Chateau de la Couronne has 3 voluminous salons off the grand entrance hall, an Honesty Bar, a cinema with 9 foot screen, a billiard room and a music area with guitars, amps and keyboards. The Chateau is set in 5 acres of grounds complete with 14.5m heated swimming pool and a formal French garden, two terraces with tables and parasols and subtle outside lighting. There's even a football pitch for the more energetic guests.
Within a few minutes drive guests will find karting, canoeing, horse riding and golf, as well as chateau's to visit, caves to explore and charming villages to meander through. There are tennis courts 500 m from the chateau. A wide range of beauty treatments can also be arranged for a pampering treat.
Breakfast is served in your room or on the terraces. Start the day with fresh fruit, cheeses and freshly made coffee, with bread and pastries still warm from the village baker.
For those hiring the entire Chateau, there is also a huge dining hall which can accommodate up to 90 seated guests. Off the Dining Hall is a full professional restaurant kitchen for you to enjoy playing Chef in - or to watch our professional caterers prepare your meals for you if you prefer. Professional caterers can provide as many or as few meals in the dining hall as you require from breakfast to a casual buffet to a multi-course extravaganza.
