O espaço

Ideally suited for those looking for a luxury retreat where your can spend a beautiful holiday or celebrate an anniversary with the family, with complete privacy within the setting of a beautiful centuries old castle, and private grounds. The original chateau stems from 1369, but has been restored to a level where you don't miss any modern conveniences: 6 bedrooms have modern en suite bathrooms, and 2 bedrooms share one. 2 bathrooms have a jacuzzi. The castle is very close to a village with bakery, grocery, bar, restaurant, medical centre, pharmacie, etc, but yet is situated completely private with beautiful views over maddows and woodlands and borders a small river.

The private pool (heated) is situated on the south-west with full sun exposure during the day. Next to the pool a heated jacuzzi for 4-6 people.

A weber gas barbecue-system is at your disposal for those nice long summer evenings.

Acesso dos hóspedes

Apart from the 8 bedrooms, the guest will have access to a beautiful dining room which sits 16-18 guests, a living room, a tv-room with a 75 inch flatscreen, netflix, dvd's and a PS4 play-station for the kids, and a spacious kitchen-livingroom with a big separate dining table. Next to the dining room a biljard room with american biljard.

Further at your disposal 8 bicycles and 4 for children. In the garage there is also a table tennis-table.

Interação com os hóspedes

You will have the full castle to yourselves. A care-taker or family-member will be staying at a caretaker-cottage on the estate in case you need any assistance, but at all times your privacy is of the utmost importance.

Bedlinnen and towels will be provided. At mid-week a cleaning lady will come for cleaning and replacing towels. For longer stays then a week: cleaning of all rooms, public area's, and change of bedlinnen will take place every week.

If you want daily cleaning of the rooms or public area's such as the kitchen, that can be arranged as well (at extra costs).

So depending on your needs, in total either 14 adults, and up to 4 children or 16 adults can be hosted. Depending on the type/age groups adding upto 4 stretcher beds for some more children can can be discussed. For smaller groups of 12 or less a discount can be given. Please contact me in that case.

Amazing Chateau, was an amazing setting and amazing welcome, great place to spend with friends and family. We loved it and the hosts were incredibly welcoming and informative. We had a few hiccups with the property during our stay which were unforeseen due to the age of the property, to be expected, and were dealt with as quickly as possibly. The owners were very caring people and communicated well with us, I would love to go again.

This superb Chateau fitted our requirements quite perfectly. A very large house, it has been renovated brilliantly and has a refined feel whilst remaining entirely practical. Our party had three families of 6 adults and 10 children and everyone was able to enjoy themselves without tripping over each other, both inside and in the expansive grounds. There was even a garage full of bicycles for all of us to use! The hospitality was excellent - communication and management of our stay were all perfect.

5* accommodation and we felt special all week! We (a family group of 20 including 6 children) have just spent a truly wonderful week at Geoffrey’s chateau, and certainly our best ever experience of rental accommodation. Firstly, Geoffrey was very thoughtful and made contact with us c.2 weeks prior to our arrival to check everything was ok, gave us directions, dealt with last minute questions, and responded promptly. On arrival we were greeted by Geoffrey’s father who gave us a tour and made us feel very welcome. A selection of champagne and local wines and delicacies were much appreciated. There was even milk in the fridge for our first cup of tea at the chateau! Geoffrey also checked to make sure everything was fine on the first day after we had settled in. As many have already remarked, the Chateau is exceptionally spacious, rooms are well appointed, beds are very comfortable and have good quality linen. We especially appreciated the small touches that you wouldn’t expect to find such as nice toiletries, mid-week change of towels / kitchen deep clean. Outside was an everyday adventure for the children (and many adults) from the pool, to jacuzzi to trampoline, to riverbed walk and boat paddle, treehouse, lots hide and seek, family bike rides, football nets, table tennis and pool table. During our stay our request for a little bath stool for the elderly grandmother in the group, who slept in the downstairs bedroom with the ensuite bathroom, was promptly catered for and gratefully received. Geoffrey’s dad didn’t have one but he went to purchase one! We enjoyed our stay so much and had enough to keep us and the children entertained that we barely went out to visit. A truly memorable stay and we can’t thank Geoffrey enough for the privilege of staying in his idyllic home.

the Chateau de la Barre was the perfect setting for our family reunion. We were able to prepare fabulous meals in the well appointed kitchens and dine in elegance in the dining room. Rooms are spacious, beds comfortable and bathrooms plenitful. The pool, billiard room, TV room (complete with dance competition program) and Jacuzzi provided us all great variety of fun to interact. We cycled to the local Gallo-Roman ruins, explored the market in Poitiers and ventured to Cognac and La Rochelle from the house on day trips to add to our perfect holiday. Geoffery's parents were lovely hosts and took care of us at every turn.

Well you have looked at the pictures and checked out the location, but I have to tell you this chateau is fantastic and it is even better than the pictures. Lots of room and everything is relaxing, with wonderful grounds to walk through. The sound of the birds in the morning is just fantastic. The local town is just up the road, and it is lovely, the bar come cafe in the square is worth a visit just to watch the World go by. You will love this Chateau, the grounds and location.

Notre séjour familial à été tout simplement merveilleux et restera inoubliable. Cette maison, vaste et arrangée avec goût, nous a conquis par son charme et son climat, et même à nous 15 ( gds-parents, enfants et petits enfants, ce fut idéal !), nous y étions très au large ! Les hôtes nous ont accueilli avec beaucoup de chaleur et de délicatesse, se mettant en 10 pour que tout se passe au mieux ; c est ainsi que nous avons eu la surprise de découvrir d excellents produits locaux et du vin et du champagne, cadeaux attentionnés des propriétaires... Les chambres et salles de bain (superbes et très bien équipées !) sont spacieuses et lumineuses, la piscine, jacuzzi, sauna,... tout est fait pour le confort et le repos. Un havre de paix dans une jolie région...! La jolie cuisine est très grande et bien équipée et a été le lieu de repas très joyeux , et nous avions aussi organisé un grand diner dans la grande et belle salle à manger avec une jolie vaisselle, quant au billard, nos jeunes ont beaucoup apprécié ! Nous avons bcp profité de la piscine, et des transats... Visite aussi très intéressante de ruines gallo romaines à quelques km... Bien sûr nous conseillons ce petit coin de paradis à ceux qui aiment le repos et le beau et apprécient la joie d être ensemble, tout simplement dans un cadre haut de gamme ! Merci à nos hôtes !

Honestly I don't know where to start, the photos of the Chateau speak for themselves - it is stunningly beautiful. The rooms are huge, beautifully decorated and have everything you could ever need, there is a cinema room, pool/gaming room which is the perfect way to unwind after a tiring day in the swimming pool, hot tub or walking the grounds ;) I hired the chateau for guests of my wedding and it was a total highlight for all of them and extremely reasonable considering the luxury you are in. So, the host - Georffrey is amazing, so accomodating, patient & kind. He put up with my 100's of messages and questions and was extremely flexible with all of my requests, like no airnbnb host has ever been. Unfortunately I didnt get to meet him on the day but his father showed my round and gave a brief history of the property as well as how everything worked - he is very witty. Also Geoffreys brother had chilled some champagne and set up a welcome cheese board which was just the perfect little touch for people arriving. I just cannot praise Georffrey or the Chateau enough, it was so perfect and if I ever get the oppourtinity to book again I would do in a heartbeat. For people coming to visit the area, there are bikes to borrow and explore the little villages around you as well as a row boat to enjoy on the river. Its so ideal, its hard to put into words. Anyone looking to stay here would be very very lucky to experience this beautiful place.
