Full accommodation information
Domaine des Etangs invites lucky visitors into an elegant fairy tale world set within a luxurious 1,000-acre estate. Staying inside the 13th-century castle, created by knights from the Middle Ages, is an experience unlike any other.
The Château is the centrepiece of this luxurious destination. The surrounding estate is an unspoilt treasure trove of forests, vegetable gardens and calm ponds that reflect the glittering stars after the sun has set over the rolling hills.
There are a variety of activities and excursions around the estate, ranging from exploring the forest to an outdoor pool, tennis court, playground and giant outdoor chessboard. With in-room dining offered in every room, suite and cottage, and special picnics around the estate, the beautiful gardens provide the estate with delightful seasonal flavours for the menu.
Whether you want to dine out surrounded by decadent décor or eat in the comfort of your cottage, a dream culinary experience awaits. The Dyades Restaurant is the hotel's main eatery and offers dishes inspired by the castle's history and landscape. The expert staff can help you find the perfect wine to match the atmosphere wherever you choose to dine. The local vineyards pair perfectly with the fresh local ingredients, making Domaine des Etangs a haven for foodies.
The location is also perfect to launch an exploration of France's brandy and wine country. Cognac is around an hour away, and Bordeaux's wine region is around two hours away; these make for a wonderful day trip out.
The accommodation options include the Château and Longère, lovely for a couple on a getaway and the farmhouses, which are perfect for a family stay where you need a little more room to enjoy.
Various activities make this an ideal place for groups or families to get away and enjoy the region together. If you'd prefer to take a more relaxed approach to your holiday, the wellness centre found on the water's edge will have everything you're looking for. Inside the spa, you'll discover tailor-made treatments that are specially adapted to the body's seasonal needs.
The castle and surrounding estate house seven luxurious rooms and suites within its storied walls and four unique suites found in the renovated stables, each themed to a different season. The accommodations are enchanting with traditional wood beams, impressive fireplaces, and garden views.
For a couple spending dedicated time together, we recommend the beautiful Junior Suites of the Longère. The four suites delicately blend french farmhouse living with seasonal themes for each suite. Another option perfect for couples is the elegant Château with seven suites beautifully designed with a luxe-comfort fashion in mind.
For larger groups or those seeking extra privacy, several farmhouse cottages are available. Named after the constellations, these farmhouses are spacious, welcoming and hand-renovated by master artisans to be a haven of comfort. There are a variety of farmhouses to choose from in differing sizes. All are a fantastic choice for a family stay at Domaine des Etangs.

During your stay, take the opportunity to truly unwind with the hotel's well-being activities, including the thermal baths in the basement of the Château. Take a dip in the indoor pool, steam yourself in the steam rooms and cool down in the frigidarium. If you prefer to swim surrounded by nature, head to the outdoor pool heated from May through September.
