We stayed in Chateau de Curzay for one night. We were looking a nice place to stop on our way from Aquitaine coast to Paris. We didn’t have a big choice of chateaus since we made last-minute booking in August. Michelin Guided restaurant was preferable so we decided to go there. It was really hidden place (even if you have all that navigators) and our trip to the hotel seemed to be a puzzle. But the country road and surroundings were so beautiful so do not lose this opportunity.
The chateau is quite spacious: trendy lobby, cozy billiard and library, and beautiful terrace - were you can relax and enjoy evening cocktail . Overall it is much better than it looks on the web site. We had a warm greeting from the manager. He was very helpful.
We had rooms at the upper floor in the small tower that provided us with a wonderful view. The room was quite big. May be to someone would complain that it’s not brand new, but I believe all that old furniture gives an impression of old castle. The bathroom was big and full of light. We didn’t have separate shower ether but haven’t even noticed it. The bed was comfortable. We had a good sleep, real country house, fresh air, light smell of chimney smoke, grass and horses:) and birds singing.
We liked the dinner a lot. I recommend you to try escargots for entry course – it was delicious, especially the souse. As well as chicken that I orderedJ
But the most exciting experience we’ve got the next morning while discovering the surroundings. The territory is big: swimming pool, horses, ancient chapel and fishing. Portier recommended us to go fishing in the morning. We were happy to follow his advice. If you like fishing you will enjoy a charming small river hidden in a shadow of old trees. They provided us with all we need: tackle, bait and small boat:)
I would recommend it for the week-end stay, so you will have enough time to enjoy all the opportunities for good relax and adventure.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- So many wonderful experiences await at the Chateau de Curzay, built in 1710. Take a hot air balloon ride from the park and survey Romanesque Vienne from the sky. Drift in a boat down the Vonne, at the heart of the estate, in search of the secret garden, and have a picnic on the banks of the river, in the shade of 200 year-old cedar trees. Go for a walk through the estate's 120 hectares in search of deer that roam wild. Visit the Futuroscope, a fairytale temple of images. Discover the seductive charm of the Poitevin marsh. Stop off in the town of Poitiers to admire the medieval facades. Back at the chateau, days and nights can be spent in magnificent tranquillity, between romantic strolls, dinner on the terrace, beauty treatments, classical music in the chapel and relaxing at the pool. ... more less
