The privately owned chateau is surrounded by a water filled moat and fields, and has its own private 25 acre park and adjoining forest.

The guest accommodation comprises 5 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms and a breakfast room. Guests also have access to a salon, barbecue area, and all of the grounds to explore the flora and fauna.

The Sleeping Accommodation
Chateau Artigny has five beautifully restored bedrooms over two floors available for guests. The first floor has two large bedrooms, one with a four poster bed and the other a double canopy bed.

Up on the second floor there are three bedrooms, two with two double and one with three single beds.

Each floor has its own modern bathroom.

Guests have full access to the grounds. Within the douves (moat) of the chateau are the garden, relaxing/sunbathing, and barbecue areas. Directly adjacent is the 25 acre park and larger forest, which has many pathways running through it. Our visitors are encouraged to explore and discover our woodland's diverse flora and fauna.

Directly circling the chateau is a scenic 15 km public walking tour, which is a fabulous way to spend a relaxing afternoon.

Area description

Artigny is located in the commune of Ceaux en Loudun, which is in the Chinon (15km), Richelieu (7km) and Loudun (12km) triangle.

The Chateau is an oasis of calm and privacy, set within its own private park of 25 acres. Within easy travelling distance are many of the major Loire valley chateaux, such as Azay le Rideau, Chinon and Rigny Ussé.

The 17th century town of Richelieu, named after the famous cardinal, is the closest town and has full amenities (restaurants, supermarkets, swimming pool, and tennis) as do have the towns of Chinon & Loudun.

Also within a 20 km radius you will find golf, horse riding, an aerodrome, nature parks, bicycle circuits, hot air ballooning, and much, much more. Wine tasting is also a favourite pastime in the area, of particular note are the AOC wines Chinon, Saumur & Bourgeuil, which can often be sampled in the local troglodytes (wine cellars located in caves).

A full 18 hole public golf course is located at Roiffé 22 km away, while the larger towns of Tours and Poitiers are approximately 50 minutes’ drive.
