Chateau De Baloigne sits in the popular Ardeche region of south eastern France. For those seeking comfort, character, style and an atmosphere unique amongst our collection, then this medieval castle is the perfect choice for your luxury chateau holiday! This fabulous self-catering chateau is surrounded by medieval ruins providing a truly atmospheric holiday experience.

The Chateau De Baloigne, and indeed the whole estate, is protected by the government as a Historic Monument. However, the ancient building has been combined with 21st century touches such as a fully fitted kitchen, hot and cold running water and modern bathrooms with showers. The interior décor is traditionally French but with a few Spanish touches.

The Chateau De Baloigne can sleep up to 15 guests in six bedrooms in the main house and a basic studio apartment is also available in a separate part of the ruins if needed, (all of which overlook the medieval ruins).

In addition, from the summer of 2019 a newly renovated tower with two bedrooms and bathrooms is included for 16 to 18 guests including a stunning rooftop terrace where you can sleep out under the stars on warm summer nights. 

There is also table tennis, various dining terraces, a beautiful old open fire and a library.

What you should know…

  • Please note that only the 18 guest prices include the use of the tower and roof terrace whilst the 15 guest prices include the Chateau only
  • The Wi-Fi is only available in the dining room, the kitchen and the rear terrace adjoining the kitchen
  • There have been many groups with young children enjoy the chateau but remember that the property is set in castle ruins so some care does need to be taken!

This home is a part of our Great Value and Heritage Collection!

This is a historic home, and as such:

  • It has probably been standing for over 100 years, which means it's full of historic value and charm but it may also have one or two quirks!
  • Some of the decor and furnishings may not be brand new, but that should not detract from your holiday experience in this unique setting that allows you to take a step back in time!

  • Truly Amazing!

    This was the most fantastic venue, a real castle in all its glory with breathtaking panoramic views!

  • Beautiful chateau

    The chateau was wonderful. We had an amazing stay.

    Chateau de Baloigne is magical, in the most beautiful setting in the Ardeche. Surrounded by woodland, flowers, dragon and butterflies.
    The setting was wonderful for a large family group as there are lots of places to lose yourself in the house and grounds and a wonderful dining place in which to all congregate.
    Madame was so helpful and friendly and fascinating to have a tour of the ruins with the owner.
    It was a wonderful way to celebrate my Mother's 70th birthday.
