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.PLEASE NOTE THAT FULL PROPERTY DESCRIPTIONS, PHOTOGRAPHS, AVAILABILITY & PRICES ARE KEPT UP TO DATE ON MY WEBSITE WHICH YOU CAN VISIT BY CLICKING ON MY PERSONAL WEBSITE LINK BELOW.
