A stone's throw from the breathtaking river this early 20th century chateau has been recently refurbished into an idyllic luxury retreat. The “Josaphine Baker” and “J'ai deux amours” reflect the historical character and grandeur in which Chateau des Granges is steeped. 12 further “Joie de vivre” double and twin bedrooms allow for typically French comfortable living in bright airy spaces overlooking the stunning “Perigord Noir” paysage.

Chateau des Granges dominates gorgeous 7 acre parkland with a lush ecosystem of plant and wildlife to observe. Enjoy a continental breakfast under one of our parasols resting in front of the grand front façade or lunch and dinner at our unrivalled poolside bar, dining and barbecue area that caters for up to 30 guests. Dotted throughout the domain are a games meadow, numerous reading and relaxation areas, table tennis and pétanque (boules) court.

Chateau des Granges features intermittently as a landmark of local history. As a luxury hotel in France's most salubrious holiday destination, Chateau des Granges was the chosen resort of France's “first black celebrity” the actress, singer and dancer Josephine Baker. Josaphine's spirit very much lives on in her favourite abode through the subtly seductive décor adorning the chateau and the suites named after her.

Further details indoors

Chateau des Granges houses 14 bedrooms, 11 of which are en-suite, the remaining 3 boasting cute, typically French washrooms. Throughout, the domain uniquely combines the beautiful features of the chateau’s historical past in its modern day functioning.

The wine cave at Chateau des Granges is stocked with exclusive red, white and champagne sourced in the locality. Tasting days and purchases can be organised. The ground floor boasts three grand reception rooms; the library room, cocktail bar and the cinema room completed with a decadent lounging suite. Adjacent to the cinema room is the dining room catering for up to 20 adults. A large domestic kitchen overlooks the dining room. For catered functions the chateau catering staff make use of the industrial kitchen.

The first floor plays home to the sensational main suites. These suites display an elegance that would take your breath away and have their own private small balconies overlooking the park. Their en suites are finished with an attention to detail not often come across. There are 5 more bedrooms on this floor, each finished with a touch of “Je ne sais quoi” and overlook the parkland.

There are 2 further second floor areas on completely separate wings. The loft is simply made for families with younger children. A master bedroom with claw foot bath, a large double with washroom and a twin room all nest around a communal hall/seated area. In the other second floor area are three further beautiful doubles and a twin, all of which are en suite.

Further details outdoors

Outside guests can enjoy 7 acres of parkland with something for all the family. The pool, poolside bar and barbecue area are another highlight of the property. Table tennis, boules, a feature pond and games meadow means that nobody will ever be at a loose end.
