Designed for superior comfort, each room is brightened by the charm and elegance of a glamorous era. Come visit, and step inside a fairy tale castle.

The structure is a marvel to behold, the 150ft limestone walls contain 365 windows, 52 fireplaces, and 12 turrets, as well as countless sculptural details along the facade. The splendour continues inside. Masterfully carved wood paneling and cabinetry, stunning hand-painted ceilings, and flawlessly chosen decor make each salon a truly luxurious experience. Situated within beautiful grounds, the Chateau de Challagne complex makes up one corner of a small village.

Every convenience is available during your stay. Each suite includes robes, slippers, a hairdryer, private w/c, bath and tea & coffee making facilities. We aim to make your holidays in France truly memorable. Experience historic luxury as you sip champagne, read poetry, and soak in a giant claw foot bath tub, surrounded by fresh flowers.
