Overview

Over 1000 hectares are protected in this 5-star resort of mainland France. These include forests, ponds, and grassland. This is a unique landscape that consists of a renovated 11th-century castle. In addition, there are six farm cottages. The property also includes an extended garden and swimming pools. There are floating tennis courts and Michelin-starred gourmet restaurants.

At first, it seems wild, but skilled artisans make a harmonious environment. The gentle rhythms of seasons and the creatures that inhabit this place are enhanced by time. It is also an ideal place to relax and enjoy the moment.

The spiral vegetable garden is a unique place. You can go through the garden to see the food on your plate at the Michelin-starred Dyades restaurant. The Moulin des Étangs is the perfect place to relax and reconnect.

Moreover, The Dairy is a place where you can listen to your children's laughter. You will also find the soul of your child by looking at the artworks exhibited. The Dairy is a place of timeless beauty where the cycles and each moment are governed by seasons, nature, and time.

The hotel has traditional stone restorations and diverse contemporary art, making it unique. This quiet, serene place unites the past and future in an everlasting present. It is also accessible to those with limited mobility. Here, balance and harmony are the keywords. The lake and forest, seasons, elements, and Dragonfly symbols bring balance. This French country-side retreat is also an enchanting castle with fairytale-style turrets.

Location

This hotel is in Charente and 2 hours away from Bordeaux. It covers over 100 hectares with unspoiled natural landscapes. The exact address is Domaine des Etangs, 16310 Massignac, France. The estate is home to seven Suites dating back to the 11th century. There are also the Longere suites that offer the best of all four seasons. Or you can stay at one of the six Farms that make up the estate.

The hotel is in an area less known than the Dordogne but equally beautiful. It is characterized by seven lakes that were artificial hundreds of years ago. They open out along the River Moulde. It is also near the village of Massignac and only 40 minutes from Limoges Airport.

Style and Character

The 11th-century Chateau is at the core of this estate. It was the fief of Chasteigner de la Roche-Posay. In the 19th century, round towers were added to the once-fortified structure. These new towers replaced the square ones. The structure was also made softer with graceful windows and neo-gothic limestone embellishments. Isabelle Stanislas' interior design at the Domaine is a pleasant surprise. It's a modernist masterpiece.

It has plenty of Garance Primat's private art collection and art-like lighting. This striking balance of old and new, elegant and cozy, strikes just the right note. It also has some delightful features. These include the child-sized Empire-style sofas and chairs. There is also the kitchen that you use to prepare your breakfast.

Service and Facilities

Guests can enjoy complimentary services like yoga and pilates classes, wine tastings, and cycling. They can also take a tour of the grounds with Jean-Francois Magnan. He will point out wildlife. A temporary art gallery, an ornamental garden, and a children's playground are also available.

Besides, the spa is in an ancient walnut oil mill. The couple's treatment room revolves around this old wood machinery. They use Sothys' products for the treatments. This hotel has both a boutique as well as a pool.

Rooms

Domaine des Etangs' 29 guest rooms and suites are located throughout the estate. They include a farmhouse, a former farmhouse, and an old barn. They feature old wooden beams with exposed stonework and copper bathtubs as a throwback to hotel history. Moreover, the hotel also offers jet showers, bathrobes, and a touch of contemporary style. For a truly luxurious experience, you can reserve a chateau suite or private cottage.

These accommodations come with a lounge and your pond, terrace, and garden. There are also calm places to see nature and watch deer, herons, and limousin cattle.

Choose between simple and stylishly rustic rooms in the seven Metairies or the adjacent longer. This area is also home to the Dyades bar, restaurant, and reception. These metairies have their sitting room and kitchen (but they also offer full hotel service) and electric cars. Isabelle Stanislas has designed seven suites and rooms in the Chateau, each named after a star. The chateau also has beautiful light and pale shades. Besides, all beds are of a high standard, and the linen is also excellent.

Food and Drink

The menu is limited at the Michelin-starred Dyades restaurant. However, if you dine there more than once, your waiter will suggest something "off-menu" - perhaps a new soup or fish. The food is tasty and nicely plated. They use local ingredients and vegetables from Paris.

The breakfast is an all-you-can-eat buffet. There are also several lovely spots to enjoy picnics, including rowing along the lake. Moreover, the baskets are plenty of Kilner jars containing different salads and baguettes.

Takeaway

Nestled amidst lush greenery and serene lakes, Domaine des Etangs is an enchanting retreat. It has a rich historical charm and contemporary elegance. It was also ranked the #1 hotel in France in 2023 by Condé Nast Traveler Readers Choice Awards. This family-friendly hotel offers a unique blend of sophistication and world-class hospitality.

Expect captivating grounds, accommodations, and amenities. This is a hidden gem for travelers seeking the ultimate escape. Book your stay today. Here, every moment creates memories.
