Chateau Les Charmettes is a small boutiuqe hotel on a glorious 10-acre park in Auch, Gascony, south west France (often referred to as the Tuscany of France). Nestled between the Basque country and the Mediterranean, the Midi Pyrénées is the perfect place for a romantic break or family touring holiday through France and Spain. Inside this 19th-century manor house, an alluring vision in peach & powder blue, interiors have a wonderful blend of rustic French and Mediterranean styles and the picture is completed with great food and friendly service from your knowledgeable owner and host, Cazou. Tour the vineyards of the region, discover the nearby towns and cities, or simply relax by the swimming pool and enjoy the peace & quiet.
Chateau Les Charmettes is the kind of place where you will be perfectly happy to while away the days wandering the gardens and reading by the outdoor pool, playing tennis on the pretty courts, walking and jogging around the park or enjoying a relaxing session of Ayurvedic or Chi Nei Tsang massage, but there is a lot to discover, right on the doorstep. To explore the country by horse back, there are stables just 15 minutes away, and keen golfers are utterly spoilt with an 18-hole golf course under 5 minutes from the chateau. Perhaps you would prefer to explore the area by bike, or spend the day fishing in a mountain stream. There are some great vineyards offering wine tastings half an hour's drive, and your hosts will happily recommend the pick of the best, while a thalassotherapy spa and fitness centre offers the best in pampering treatments. For the active, why not go river canoeing, or take a day trip to the Pyrenees mountains an hour away, or the beaches of Biarritz and the Mediterranean a 2.5 - 3 hour journey. The vibrant city of Toulouse can be reached within an hour. A hot-air balloon ride is an exciting way to view the breathtaking scenery. After a day exploring, return to a refreshing drink in the chateau's bar.
For breakfast enjoy a generous spread served in room, in the park or by the pool. A room-service menu is available for other meals.
