Prestigious Family Suite Bleue & Oiseaux
Juliet balcony, framed by luscious turquoise and coral colour curtains, offers splendid views of the garden onto the meadow beyond the Château fortifications.
The Chambre Bleue is an elegant double room with a king-size bed and luxurious decoration: turquoise silk Rubelli fabrics, antique oil paintings and valuable Louis XV antiques.
The colourful Chambre Oiseaux offers 2 single beds that can be converted into a super king double bed. The walls are covered with Paul Marot fabric and the furniture are Georges II period. This room also enjoys a breathtaking view over the park and the Valley from its Juliet balcony.
Each room has its own shower and toilet and own small dressing room.
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.

First the Chateau: It is beautiful, rich with history and the rooms are exceptional like all the other reviewers said. I paid an entrance fee to see places that were less nice to see! All the rooms are spacious, beautiful and have Hermes toiletries. Going...More
Many reviews of a positive experience will often repeat the comments of others. I have such a wonderful memory of Chateau de la Barre that I hope I can leave a review that will want others to experience what I have, at this impressive Chateau and its gardens.
It goes without saying that Comte & Comtesse de Vanssay (Guy & Marnie) owners and hosts of the Chateau are proud of their home and want others to enjoy the experience of absorbing yourself into the history of the Chateau and their family name. From the moment you meander through the grounds down the driveway and catch your first glimce of the Chateau your face lights up, a cheeky little smile appears on your face and you realise that you made a great choice. For me I realised I had got things right as I felt the tension in my wife's hand which she had placed on top of mine and then seeing the glaze of her eyes and a smile that mimiced my own. 5 days later we left to continue our holiday through France and could not stop thinking about Chateau de la Barre, Guy & Marnie and the local area. So much so we change our plans and returned to finish our honeymoon at the place were our married life began. You will be very happy if you have your own memory of Chateau de la Barre to tell.

First of all, this is not a hotel so no room key. This is as it should be because you are staying in the home of Count and Countess de Vanssay. But they are so welcoming that you will be calling them Guy and Marnie....More
