The Beast’s Castle is finally opening for visitors – but do you have what it takes to be their guest for the week?
The castle is nuzzled in Vendee & Charente’s captivating countryside and it’s simply awe-inspiring. That said, you won’t cross paths with many others, the local wildlife has ruffled a few feathers with the neighbours so they tend to stay away. But don’t let that discourage you, inside lies a world of splendour.
Ornate wallpaper, rich tapestries, antique furniture and chandeliers decorate the glamorous four floors. And it’s all yours to explore: 5 unique bedrooms, luscious pool and the exquisite French garden – your days will never have been better spent! Though the castle is spacious, the West Wing is forbidden to visitors – rumour has it, the 900-year-old curse will be awakened…
Don’t worry, there’s still plenty opportunity to have fun; get lost in the treasure-trove library, have a sing-along by the piano, get competitive over billiards or take a stroll around the castle's ruins. The castle is quirky, gothic and unconventional – who knows when a prince will come and sweep you off your feet. If you need anything during your stay, be sure to let the on-site staff know, who will happily take care of your needs – insider tip: they make a cracking cup of tea.
Remember, appearances can be deceiving, beauty is found within – but you won’t have to search for it here, beauty overflows.
