Experience a bit of film star lifestyle at this unique Chateau.
A great venue for a family or group holiday, Chateau de la Couronne offers an amazing welcome - child friendly, unstuffy and fun, yet it has interiors gorgeous enough to have been featured in design magazines around the world. A blend of urban chic and ornate French charm, the Chateau offers five salons, two terraces, five acres of private grounds with a heated pool, as well as a cinema, a billiard room, a huge dining hall and a kitchen any chef would be happy to spend time in. Self-cater or have the chateau arrange catering, it's completely flexible, and entirely up to you. There is accommodation for up to 26 guests in large and individually designed bedrooms, with ludicrously decadent bathrooms and luxurious touches like Egyptian cotton bed linen, big fluffy towels and Chateau Bathrobes. And if lazing round the pool becomes all too much, there are tons of activities in the local area to keep little minds and bodies active, from miles of safe cycling to adventure parks, karting, boating and kayaking. An unforgettable holiday!
