EXPLORATION

Discover the real France

Ideally located for the Atlantic Coast and the Loire Valley, the Château des Forges offers an envious mix of things to do and places to see while largely remaining off the beaten tourist track. You really do have the opportunity to experience ‘La France Profonde’ ....

“What a pleasant and historical place mixed with modern facilities.  The apartment was as expected and a bit more, the view to the welcoming pool and the large park was stunning…”

Take a majestic vacation in the Château des Forges where France's monarchs once sought refuge from the stifling routine of court life in Paris. The Château, with its variety of apartments and cottages to choose from, lies 20 miles from Poitiers in the Deux-Sèvres department of the Poitou-Charentes region, with its frequent flights to London Stansted.


In summer, as you would expect, fields of sunflowers stretch towards the horizon, but the region offers other enchanting scenery, as well as an abundance of villages, towns and opportunities for relaxation, stimulation and exploration.

Deux-Sèvres is the ideal location in western France for access to both the Atlantic coast and the Loire valley. It is next department inland from the Vendée and Charente-Maritime as well as sitting below the Centre region and the climate is very similar to that of the Mediterranean with long hot summers.


If you are looking for some exclusivity with the option to do as much or as little as you like, you’ve found it.
