The building is grand and everything you would expect from a building that old. The manager and manageress are lovely, really helpful and accommodating. We will definitely return here, beautiful location, service and quintessentially French! Beautiful

My husband and I have now stayed here several times. We gave created a tradition to end all our yearly French trips at this wonderful hotel. We cannot stay away. The magnificent grounds, warm and welcoming staff, beautuful room, and magnificent restaurant make Château de Nieuil our own personal paradise.

Hidden in the countryside, the chateau finally appears in view and does look enchanting. You certainly feel the opulence in the architecture and in your room. Breakfast in the chateau is in a beautiful room. The only disappointment in the place is the food in the restaurant on the grounds--it just is not what the French, or anyone, would rave... More

Have been to the restaurant La Grange aux Oies a couple of times and promised ourselves a night at the Chateau. We went with friends and it proved to be enchanting. We were warmly welcomed and shown around the Chateau and to our rooms and which were adequately furnished and clean, the bed very comfortable also. Once settled in we... More

Found this gem searching the Internet. Great find. Enchanting place with a warm friendly staff. A wonderful restaurant on the property. We went for my wife's birthday ... Our kids included. The chateau is a former hunting lodge of a French king.

The experience began after the search began for this place. Driving from Barcelona to Paris after an overnight in Carcassone. In Limoge we left the comfort of the A20 headed north toward Paris and started the hour long journey on the n141 in the direction of Angouleme. Had we known, we could have put the restaurant, La Grange aux Oies,... More

A Picture Book Castle: we had viewed the pictorial charms of this chateau in guide books for years, and on our 2011 Odyssey up the Route of Richard the Lionheart - in deepest France – we decided to end our dedicated journey in high style. What a disappointment. The Chateau de Nieuil is certainly impressive and driving up the avenue... More

What a paradise! Despite its almost intimidating grandeur, the hotel manager and friendly staff made us feel totally at home in King Francis 1st's chateau. We loved every second of exploring the grounds, including the classically French style manicured gardens and its extensive bird filled park. We were welcomed with a glass of grape cider and were treated warmly throughout... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
In the heart of the beautiful countryside of the Charente departement, as you travel along a side road, the magnificent and haughty, chateau de Nieuil comes into view. Beautiful Renaissance facades, fat round towers surrounding the main building, a water-filled moat, a formal garden - after just that first glance you will want to stay the night, for a weekend, or for even longer ! Francois I had the right idea - the Chateau de Nieuil was one of his favourite hunting residences. Majestic trees, green lawns and a peaceful lake all add to the calm and peacefulness of the place.
