A little corner of paradise

The welcome from our two hosts was warm and sincere. The chateau is splendidly decorated with great comfort too. There is a fabulous sense of calm and tranquility making this a trip of dreams.
Wonderful chateau, full of character
Created on 14/09/2016
We stayed in the Chateaux De Seyres for a week as a friend was getting married in the region, a group of us decided to book accommodation for a week's holiday and couldn't have chosen a more perfect place! We were 10 adults and for two nights we were 15. The Chateau itself is a wonderful maze of rooms and corridors, some as much as 800 years old, full of character and completely unique. Situated on the edge of a small village, we were able to pick up our morning breads and meats locally, while the nearest supermarket was about 15 minutes away. Secluded and secure, the grounds of the Chateau include a beautiful outdoor dining area, heated swimming pool, with ping pong table, badminton net, trampoline and various other entertainment available, even a few bikes to explore a little further.
We found the owners very friendly and helpful. They were available whenever required, without being intrusive. They organised a local horse riding and canoeing trip for us and arranged a meal on our first evening, cooked by some of their friends.
I could not recommend this place more. Every bit as beautiful as it looks!
Stunning chateau in an idyllic town

A group of friends and I stayed here a week ago and could not have wished for better. The Chateau itself is absolutely stunning and the grounds are beautiful. The rooms are immaculately presented in a style befitting the age and history of the property but with a comfort and warmth that makes one feel relaxed and at home. My only slight regret was that as the weather was so good for us that we barely spent anytime inside but for sleeping. Having said that, dining outside each night in front of the old coach house wasn't a chore! Nathalie arranged a meal for us on the first night so that removed the stress of shopping and cooking before we were settled. Nathalie and her sister were also on hand to lend advice or help with booking anytime we asked but were never intrusive and were charming hosts. The town of Sers is minimal but you can get all the basic provisions when you get used to their opening times, and the nearest Intermarche is a 15 minute drive away. All this set alongside the swimming pool, badminton set, table tennis and petanque and you have yourself an ideal getaway retreat. I fully recommend staying here to anyone and I fully intend to stay there again myself!
Magical week at this special place!

We visited Chateau de Seyres in August this year, 2012, and enjoyed a magical week at this special place.
The ancient chateau - surrounded by peaceful woodland - oozes character and history, yet the rooms are large and comfortable, with an inviting lounge and atmospheric dining room.
During the week we visited, South-West France was experiencing a fierce heatwave, and with temperatures nudging 50 degrees, the newly-built pool was a necessity! One of the most attractive and largest outdoor pools I have come across, it's nestled in the grounds, surrounded by plenty of sunloungers and a few hammocks... a wonderful setting in which to relax, sunbathe, read.
Our hosts were unfailingly welcoming and hospitable, and always keen to suggest nearby walks, or bike rides (there are a few bikes for guests to use).
We hope to visit the chateau, and this beautiful corner of South-West France, next year.
Our wedding day was truly magical!

We booked the Chateau de Seyres for our wedding in the first weekend of September and it was the best decision we ever made! We booked it online on the strength of the pictures which can be a bit risky but when we checked it out in March we knew we had found somewhere really special!
We had a small wedding with only 25 guests but the setting was perfect.
Planning a wedding abroad can be quite stressful but thanks to Nathalie and Blandine, our charming hosts, the process was relatively easy. They were so helpful throughout the whole experience from arranging the priest to give the blessing to finding us a caterer (who by the way, was amazing! Best food ever!). The church where we had the ceremony is next to the chateau and this was beautiful too with so much character!
There were 15 of us altogether who stayed at the chateau and nobody wanted to leave! Me and my husband stayed in the Red Room which had a lovely view of the garden and a huge four poster bed but all the rooms had quirky details full of character so everyone was happy!
The weekend was so relaxed and we were able to spend quality time with all the family playing in the fabulous pool, playing table tennis and badminton. Self catering was easy because there is a charcuterie and boulangerie in the village and a huge supermarket a short drive away so the day after the wedding we had a barbecue.
I can't rate the chateau highly enough as it was the setting to my dream wedding and it brings tears to my eyes when I think of how happy I was! A weekend was all it took to fall in love with this place but next time we'll stay a whole week to really make the most of it!
Thank you to everyone who helped make our wedding day truly magical!

Once you enter through the impressive front gate you will be amazed by the romantic garden with beautiful old trees. Imagine enjoying your summer breakfast sitting in its shade, or having your winter aperitif next to the fireplace with the sound of crackling wood. The intimate rooms are in mint condition and during the recent refurbishment all original detailed were preserved. The surroundings are amazing - great for long walks. The two hosts are very hospitable and friendly, and will do anything to make your stay a pleasant and memorable one!
