|20th March 2013 – Poitou-Charentes is a tranquil and largely unspoilt landscape mid-way down the west coast of France. It is an administrative region of just over 1.5 million inhabitants and has become a holiday destination. Listed below are just three examples of the new accommodation favourites for 2013 that aid in making the region the exciting place it is today:
Hotel Ligaro – Cognac Country
With a lovely garden area that has been completely redesigned and spa and pool facilities being added this year the Hotel Ligaro offers the luxurious charm of a French town house. Previously an abandoned 17th century dwelling and one of the oldest buildings in the town of Jarnac, it reopened its doors in September 2012 and contains ten rooms which are all extremely spacious and are decorated with the traditional colours of Cognac (orange, cinnamon, vanilla and chocolate). Just a short walk from the hotel there is a boutique selling local produce and a gastronomic restaurant that are both run by the same family.
Rates range from 149EURO* (GBP 127) per room per night to 365EURO* (GBP 312) per room per night. Prices vary due to the number of individuals opting for breakfast and dinner during their stay.
Château de Tennessus – Parthenay-Deux-Sevres
Set in the heart of historic Poitou and entirely surrounded by water, Château de Tennessus is a stunning, fully restored, medieval castle bed and breakfast where time stands still, and only the plumbing is comfortingly modern! Owned by a British couple, this is a year round holiday destination where you may fish in the moat, row around the castle, plunge into the swimming pool or stroll through the vegetable garden, it could not be more enchanting. With its five large medieval styled bedrooms with real pieces of armour and hand crafted furniture it is the perfect place to relax like the royals.
Bed and breakfast range from 105EURO* (GBP 90) per room per night to 145EURO* (GBP 124) per room per night. http://www.tennessus.com/
The Chateau of Brillac – Cognac Country
The Chateau of Brillac is a nineteenth century mansion that has been turned into a lovely hotel by owners Jean-Francois and Sylvie Maupas. Built of local white stone, this classic chateau is equally stunning inside with its contemporary design. There is a spa, vast heated pool and you are surrounded by green undulating hills and vales that are crammed with woods. There are vineyards as far as the eye can see as Fossignac is deep in Cognac Country; the mansion was originally built by cognac producers.
Rates range from 70EURO* (GBP 60) to 180EURO* (GBP 154) per night depending on time of year you wish to stay, number of individuals that will be staying and choice of accommodation.
|Note to Editors: With its equitable climate, Poitou-Charentes – the sunniest part of western France – is an area where you can enjoy many attractions. Visitors may enjoy for example the famous and unique Marais Poitevin, also known as Venice Verte, which connects the Poitou and the Vendée; the historic port of La Rochelle with its fine restaurants and magnificent sites; Futuroscope – a theme park for the senses; Cognac and Poitiers – the regional capital.
This is the perfect family holiday destination with a wealth of well run campsites, B&B’s, hotels and gîtes to choose from together with wide open spaces to enjoy activities which range from golf to water-sports.
