Overview of Chateau de Caillaud + Cottage

What Oliver loves…

  • The owner is a fantastic chef and will cook meals at the chateau upon request
  • This chateau in Charente has many amenities! From an indoor pool and fitness room, to a tennis court and game room
  • With an acre of parkland, chestnut trees, and roaming horses, the setting is beautiful!

What you should know…

  • The nearest village is within walking distance, though does not have many amenities
  • A car hire is recommended to make to best enjoy the region

With a bevy of on site amenities and regional points of interest nearby, this 15th century estate in Charente is the perfect set up for groups of friends or family on a French holiday together. Between the two estate properties, up to 17 guests can be accommodated.

The main house is attractively designed with traditional French décor, boasting five elegant bedrooms with en suite baths (sleeps 13), a well-appointed, modern kitchen, and a welcoming living space and formal dining room with marble fireplaces. You’ll also find a game room and an indoor pool to keep both kids and adults entertained.

The quaint cottage is inviting with a wood-burning fireplace and an open plan floor space connecting the sitting room, dining area, and updated kitchen. Two bedrooms comfortably sleep four.

Outside guests have an acre of parkland to explore, plus a tennis court, bicycles, and badminton. With plenty of outdoor furniture and a BBQ, picnics in the park are a must.

Within an hour’s drive, guests can enjoy Cognac and wine tastings, an island adventure at Ile de Re, or visit the Vallee de Singes (primate park). Or stay close by and enjoy pizzerias and the Saturday market in Chef Boutonne.

Interior & Grounds

The chateau itself comfortably accommodates up to 13 guests in its 5 en suite rooms and the nearby cottage can be rented when more space is needed for groups of up to 17.

On the ground floor is a large spacious living room with TV and original marble fireplace and light fixtures. The dining room is furnished with original marble fireplace and oak panelling. The sizeable American-style kitchen with dining table comes complete with double ovens, eight ring gas hob, dishwasher and microwave. The Chateau has Wi-Fi access available.

On the first floor is a double with en suite bathroom, a double with shower room, a double with shower room and extra single bed and a family double room with additional 2 singles and spacious en-suite shower room. On the second floor is another double with en-suite shower room.

The cottage has a double bedroom, a twin bedroom, a large reception room/kitchen and a separate bathroom.

Surrounding the chateau is an acre of parkland full of chestnut trees. There is a tennis court, a pool table, table tennis table, and an indoor pool. Badminton, boules and cycles are all available for guest use. There is also abundant garden furniture and a gas-fired barbecue for al fresco dining. There is also ample parking for cars.

Map, Location & Local Information

The nearest airport is Poitiers (50km), but Limoges and La Rochelle are also only 80km from the chateau. The local village is Chef Boutonne, just 2km from the chateau.

Remy Martin and Hennessy are nearby for Cognac-lovers. Visit Futuroscope in Poitiers for exciting rides. Take a trip to Green Venice in Marais Poitovon with its miles and miles of waterways. The valley of the monkeys(Vallee des Singes) is close by. Classic car racing happens at Angloueme. See Europe’s biggest silver mine at Melle. There are abundant local fishing lakes. The famous twin towers at La Rochelle are worth a visit, and you will find quaint cobbled streets and great beaches nearby.

There is a market every Saturday at the nearby Chef Boutonne and there are also two supermarkets, numerous patisseries, hotel Le Voyagers and a pizzeria (with takeaways!). Daily local markets can be found. A nearby stable (5km) offers horse riding. Good golf courses can be found at Poitiers and Niort.

The Region

With so much on offer, it’s a wonder the departments of Vendée and Charente aren’t bursting with tourists throughout the year. With Paris not too far off (so travel and a day trip to the City of Light are a breeze) you can still experience the quaint rhythm of the French countryside – especially if you’re thinking of staying in one of our holiday villas in Vendée and Charente. To tempt you to visit and give you some inspiration, we’ve put together this handy Vendée & Charente travel guide so you can make the most of your trip.
