We had a lovely stay in the chateau with an excellent celebratory meal. The staff were efficient and friendly. The room was clean and spacious. The chateau is lovely with beautiful grounds, where it is great to walk around. The restaurant, La Grange aux Oies served a lovely meal to us and our friends. It is just a lovely place... More

We have stayed at Chateau de Nieuil many years ago and our first impressions on returning was that it is still as beautiful and romantic as we remembered. The staff were all marvellous - nothing was too much trouble and they made our stay very comfortable. We stayed in the 14th century tower which is very romantic and comfortable and... More

The Chateau de Nieuil has been good enough to justify a 600 mile detour after the Monaco Grand Prix almost every year. In over 30 years of travel to France, I've yet to find an hotel that superbly combines the essential elements of a relaxing visit - even if it's for only 1 night. The location couldn't be more peaceful,... More

My husband and I just returned from our annual pilgrimage to Le Château de Nieuil. Each year brings more invaluable memories. Staff greet us like old friends, we have "our room," and " our table" at the indescribably delicious restaurant, La Grange aux Oies. We have found wonderful activities, all within an hour of the château...a country fair on the... More

What an amazing place to stay. Historically this was once owned by Francois 1er and then he swapped it for another property elsewhere. The building is beautiful and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. There is a restaurant, unfortunately it was closed on the night we were there (Mon night), but the staff suggested a great alternative about 10... More

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

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. Would you like to come in? Please do! ... more   less
