Premium hotel partner : Chateau Ardilleux

Welcome to our chateau, Chateau Ardilleux is a handsome country home and charming cottage, situated in its own peaceful parkland in very private walled grounds. We are situated in the Poitou Charentes region of France famous for its sunflowers and microclimate.

It is decorated in a traditional French style, with original marble fireplaces & features. We boast 5 large en-suite bedrooms, a tennis court, an indoor pool (completely enclosed and adjoining the house) and table tennis facilities.

There is also a self-contained 2 bed charentaise cottage in the grounds so we are perfect for individuals, couples, families and even large groups of up to 17. In the late 18th century Chateau Ardilleux was the country retreat of the Fleury-Michon family and has a tunnel linking it to the nearby Chef Bountonne which is over 1000 years old!

Our five rooms are split over the first and second floors. On the first floor there is a 4 poster bed double with ensuite, a double with shower room and extra single, a family double room with 2 extra singles and spacious en-suite shower room, a double with en-suite shower room.

The second floor double room has views of the garden and an en-suite shower room.

On the ground floor there is a large and spacious living room with its original fireplace and light fittings, containing a TV and hi-fi for your entertainment. The dining room has classic oak paneling, antique furnishings including the original pewter light fitting and a large marble fire place creating a very inviting ambiance for formal meals and candlelit suppers.

The kitchen with dining table and chairs comes complete with the new range cooker with 5 hobs & double ovens, dish washer, microwave, coffee machine and washing machine.

Outside we have an acre of parkland full of chestnut trees, a decking area for sun bathing, abundant garden furniture, a gas fired barbecue for al fresco dining and ample room for car parking.

We are delighted to offer a great variety of leisure facilities for you to enjoy during your stay. There is a completely enclosed 11 meter indoor pool adjoining the chateau, a tennis court, table tennis table and a games room with a pool table and  table football. Badminton, boules and cycles are also available for guests use.

Our charming 2 bed cottage has a large living space with a log burner and original fireplace. It has a fully fitted kitchen with an electric oven, hob, microwave, washing machine and fridge-freezer. Upstairs there is a 1 double and 1 twin bedroom with a family shower room. Outside there is a gazebo for al fresco dining. The Cottage has a private above ground pool (20×10) feet during high season.

The nearest airport is Poitiers 50kms away but Limoges and La Rochelle are only 80kms from the chateau. The local village Chef Boutonne (near enough to cycle in for morning croissants!) is just 2kms away, with two supermarkets, numerous patisseries, hotel le voyagers and a pizzeria.  Chef Boutonne has halls dating back to the 1600s, a fishing lake, the ruins of an old castle and a fascinating Romanesque church.

There are daily local markets and a nearby riding stable (5kms), Lake Lambon is 20 mins away with swimming, fishing and windsurfing & golf courses at Poitiers & Niort.

During your stay you could visit Remy Martin or Hennessy (for cognac lovers!) or the Futurescope theme park for exciting rides to entertain the whole family. The Valley of monkeys is well worth a visit and take a trip to Green Venice in Maris Potovin, with its miles of waterways.  There is a classic car racing event at Angloueme in September, or you can see the largest silver mine in Europe in Melle with its Romanesque churches.
