Rooms + Suites

Countryside bliss.

A variety of accommodations can be found at Domaine des Etangs, each with thoughtful details and easy access to the surrounding countryside. The thirteenth century Castle features seven rooms and suites, each celebrating art and life with gallery-inspired living rooms. Photographic compositions by Dieter Appelt, Hermès chairs, and whimsical lighting add an extra touch to the magic of the Castle’s original details. The Longère building next-door features four spacious suites that seamlessly blend traditional materials with contemporary design. For ultimate privacy, the six spacious Métairie Cottages boast one to five double bedrooms and are just a bike ride away from the heart of the château. With oversized living rooms and fully equipped kitchens, we love these for a relaxing family getaway.

Thermal baths and seasonal treatments.

The property boasts an indoor swimming pool complete with a tepidarium (warm room), caldarium (hot room), and frigidarium (cold room). In the summer months, guests can enjoy a dip in the heated outdoor pool. The gym is open year-round, with state-of-the-art equipment including ellipticals, exercise bikes, treadmills, free weights, and floor mats. Not to mention, it overlooks the property’s stunning surroundings. For a day of pampering, guests can retreat to the wellness center. Recently renovated and offering a variety of modern treatments, the spa at Domaine des Etangs draws inspiration from the seasons through its one-of-a-kind offerings.

Garden-to-table dining.

The estate’s main restaurant, Dyades, is where the magic happens; after fresh produce is handpicked from the organic garden, it is prepared in the château’s kitchen to then be enjoyed in a location of your choosing. From a peaceful picnic outside to a lively barbecue to a celebration in the private dining room, the chefs at Dyades have you covered. Craving a night in? The family-style room-service menu is perfect for a relaxing evening in your Farmhouse Cottage
