Château de la Basmaignée

Peace and luxury in the heart of the French countryside

Since the 14th century, many castles have stood upon the same foundations. The ancestral home of countless noble families deeply root the estate in French history. Royal ties to King Louis XIV make Château de la Basmaignée a unique place of considerable historic significance. An extensive rebuilding project finished during the roaring twenties saw Château de la Basmaignée reborn once more… Bigger and grander for a new century. A Neo gothic hunting lodge to entertain high society, and a statement of excess, beauty and wealth. 

 The château sits on the edge of its own ancient forest, teeming with deer, wild boar, and red squirrels. The open parkland, medieval lake and woodland pathways harbour many species, and are well suited to country walks and wildlife spotting.

Peaceful and rejuvenating holiday, weekend getaway in the countryside, Bachelorette or birthday weekend, we welcome and cater to your needs, whether you are travelling on your own, with your other half, your family or a group of friends. 

Start your magical journey with us at Basmaignée today.
