Prestigious Double Family Suite aux Fleurs & Directoire

This cosy suite is located in the oldest part of the château, XVth century, and decorated with silk stripes, Toile de Jouy on the walls and Georgian antiques. The 4 windows overlook the chapel and the defensive walls.


Chambre aux Fleurs, a charming double room with a queen size 160 cm bed is situated in the XV century wing of the Château. Bright Braquenié fabric forms a striking setting for the luscious patina of the XVIII century antique furniture. En-suite Italian marble bathroom with Jacuzzi bath and toilet, built into the former watch tower.

The adjoining room, Chambre Directoire, offers a period Empire single bed and overlooks the family chapel of the château. It shares the Italian marble bathroom with the Chambre aux Fleurs.

The hearty English breakfast, served on fine porcelain, is presented with home-made jams and fresh seasonal fruit from the castle garden. You will thus savour the beginning of a peaceful day in beautiful surroundings.

The Count of Vanssay will invite you, if you wish, for a visit of the castle, during which he will tie in the history of the Vanssay family with the History of France. Afterwards, enjoy a serene stroll into the untouched nature of the flowered garden and luxuriant park beyond.
