CLOSED ANNUALLY: From November to March

THE STORY: This former Charentais seigneury has belonged to the Veillon family for over a hundred years, and ever since 2017, the Domaine de la Partoucie has been welcoming in guests with the utmost care. Under the watchful eye of heirs Fabienne and Michel, the 18th-century main house and dovecote, along with a wing of the 15th-century castle, have been remodeled to accommodate five bedrooms. Decorated by the two of them (wicker armchairs, dried flowers, witch’s mirrors…), the rooms are all equipped with views of the moat and the four-hectare estate. It’s the perfect spot for a green getaway, where you can wander the grounds surrounded by sheep and century-old trees (and even a real sheepfold!), visit the vegetable patch, take a bike ride, go paddle boating on the pond, play tennis or take a dip in the salt-water pool once the weather warms up. Rooms starting at €110 a night.

TOILETRIES: Artisanal Marius Fabre soap, body wash and shampoo.


BREAKFAST: Included, with tea, coffee, bread, viennoiseries, Echiré butter, artisanal honey, homemade jams, fresh fruit, farm-fresh goat cheese, yogurts, homemade granola and cake…

LITTLE LUXURY: Trying to catch (and release!) frogs in the moat (boat and fishing rod provided)!
