Domaine des Etangs

Domaine des Etangs



The largest 5-star resort in mainland France expands over 1000 hectares of protected natural surroundings, including forests, grassland, and ponds. It is an exceptional landscape, consisting of a fully renovated 11th-century chateau, along with numerous works of contemporary art, landscaped gardens, six farmhouse cottages, a longer, a vegetable garden, Gallo-Roman baths, two swimming pools, a floating tennis court, and a Michelin star gourmet restaurant.

The initial impression of untamed nature soon reveals signs of the skilled and patient hand of craftsmen who have shaped a world in equilibrium. Here, the passage of time complements the gentle rhythm of the passing seasons and that of the animals that live here. This is a place for rediscovery, relaxation, observation, and for savoring the present moment.

A Place of Life - Located in the heart of the Charente, 2 hours from Bordeaux, Domaine des Etangs covers 1,000 hectares of unspoiled nature, shared between forests, pastures and ponds. It is a place of life where you stay in one of the seven suites of the Castle dating from the eleventh century, those of the Longère that happy the four seasons, or in one of six farms that dot the estate.

It is a haven of life apart where man's hand has shaped a world of balance—a world where harmonious Nature takes you back to the center of you. Take the time to travel in the spiral vegetable garden, admire the vegetables that tonight or tomorrow will decorate your plate at the Michelin-starred restaurant Dyades. Let yourself be pampered by the attentive care of the Moulin des Etangs, the center of reconnection and well-being. Listen to the little ones' laughs in their reserved area and find your child's soul by contemplating the works of art exhibited at the Dairy. It is a timeless place where each cycle, each moment, is content to follow that of seasons and Nature. If each stone, each roof has been restored in respect of traditional know-how, the great diversity of contemporary works of art that dot it gives the Domaine an air of two, this quiet and serene space that unites yesterday and tomorrow in an eternal present. The establishment is accessible to people with reduced mobility.

Between lake and forest, seasons, elements, and complementary principles and senses, like the emblem of the Domaine, the dragonfly, here everything is about equilibrium and harmony. An enchanting chateau with fairytale turrets set in over 1000 hectares of woodland and waterways, there is a magical air to this luxury country retreat.

The rooms and suites at Domaine des Etangs are scattered around the estate, within a chateau and a former barn and farm cottages. Now beautifully restored, they feature gnarled wooden beams, exposed stone walls, and copper bathtubs - a nod to the hotel's past. Plus jet showers, fluffy robes, and the occasional dash of contemporary design. For the pinnacle of luxury, book an outstanding suite in the chateau or a private farm cottage to have your own lounge area and even an individual pond, garden, or terrace. Inside and out, there are plenty of quiet spots to enjoy the views - and to spot deer, heron, and otters.

You could grab a glass of chilled wine from the honesty bar as you relax, or work up an appetite with a game of tennis, Purify yourself in the Gallo roman styled thermal spa, a few laps from the heated pool. As you do, the hotel chef will be in the kitchen garden, gathering fresh herbs and vegetables for dinner that night.
