A unique and magical holiday awaits the discerning at the magnificent Château de Crazannes located in France’s beautiful Charente-Maritime region, within easy distance to La Rochelle, Cognac and other delightful destinations. Built during the 11th and 15th centuries, the château, complete with heated swimming pool and private parking, is situated on breathtaking grounds in the middle of a large park. It has been beautifully and meticulously restored, allowing visitors to immerse themselves in the elegant grandeur of bygone times yet enjoy the comforts of modern day living.
Today, it is renown as the setting for Charles’ Perrault’s timeless fairy tale “Puss-In-Boots” but in its past was a stopping ground for pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostela. Classified a historical monument, the château can count among its illustrious visitors The Black Prince (1362) and the French king François the First (1519).
The château offers its visitors Chef’s Tables, and, on request, an authentic French cuisine, prepared with fresh vegetables and herbs straight from the kitchen garden, can be served in the beautiful Pilgrim’s dining room. Sumptuously furnished, the Château de Crazannes also has a Keep and a Cottage on its grounds, and can be rented in its entirety, or in separate parts. It is a perfect setting for family, group or corporate get-togethers and holidays, and is available for weddings, receptions, seminars and other special events.
