A bit about the Château !

July 4, 2012

Chateau de LisseA dreamy château in rural France. Party by the piano, pool or punting lake; go moonlit riding, sip estate wines, sleep in four-posters…

Your jaw will drop six feet into soft grass. Set in sweeping vineyards, this handsome 14th to 19th-century château comes with twin turrets, tiny chapel and regal reception rooms where sumptuous sofas invite you to sink back by log fires. A stunning spot for weddings or celebrations, it smacks of Tudor grandeur – wood panelling, carved ceilings, hunting trophies, shields and swords: a museum if it weren’t a self-catering castle! Dine at a round table ringed by antique cabinets; retreat with a cognac to the library. Suits of armour usher you upstairs to swagged four-posters and claw-foot baths with big brass taps; bedrooms are starkly beautiful in their antique finery. Gather for billiards, tennis or a session at the grand piano; splash in the heated outdoor pool, lounge by the barbecue, punt on the lake. Or meet at dusk for moonlit horse riding – the fun is endless. Gardens plunge to 225 hectares of deer-run parkland, lake and vines; arrange a tasting of their own wine. There are two kitchens swish enough to keep a French chef happy (should you hire one), childminders by arrangement, a caretaker on hand. Princely.
