Such an amazing experience. The spectacular tree-lined driveway leads you through the extensive grounds, to the chateau. I was in awe. The grounds are easy to roam and well maintained – the atmosphere is magical

Judy & Barry

The Chateau and its surroundings are a delightful journey back in time, enhanced by an authentic and spectacular renovation. Dine like Nobility, sleep in rooms of opulence and space that are unique to the times and enjoy the warm hospitality of the hosts


I think any stay at Chateau de la Carriere could be anything you want it to be. You have scope and opportunity to be quite busy, exploring or you can just relax in a perfect setting with a wonderful host. We have made memories in our week at Chateau de la Carriere which will give us joy forever. Go and enjoy!


Glamorous reception rooms, delightful bedrooms with private bathrooms, a chapel, a pool, woods and new accommodation nestled within original infrastructure, topped off with homemade Cherry Jam produced from established garden trees. It is an easy trip from Paris by train or car to the region.

Oui! I’m ready for an unforgettable week.
