A Magical Domain to Celebrate Life & Art
As a landmark in French history, the Domaine des Étangs is a fabulous fairy-tale hotel and a former château fit for royalty, complete with towers, surrounded by lakes, meadows and mills. The estate grounds offer a magical setting between the forest and the lakes, surrounded by a landscape of waterways and woodlands, and transformed into a fabulous playground of marvels.
The hotel is surrounded by seven lakes and a private art collection to complement the estate’s gallery, spread across the sprawling 2,500 acres in the rolling, rural heart of southwest France. You can choose your accommodation between the 13th-century château that has been tastefully restored, or beautifully refurbished farmhouse cottages set within individual buildings dotted around the grounds, perfect for a family or friends.
