After a 4-year renovation, Château de Curzay is ready to re-open its doors, and welcome discerning travelers who like to slow down, reconnect with nature, and enjoy French countryside living; an ideal place for friends and families to gather together.

The lovingly and artfully designed interiors and landscape were reimagined with a nod to the castle’s majestic past, to include the utmost comforts of modern life, creating a private, tranquil and sophisticated atmosphere.

The estate has been the residence of different aristocratic families throughout history, from the medieval buildings constructed in the 12th century, to the conception and construction of the castle by La Marquise de L’Hôpital in 1710, to the acquisition and renovation in 1783 by the Viscounts of Curzay, remaining in the same family until 1991, with a dramatic occupation during WWII.

Adjacent to the dining room, are the sunny breakfast room, an inviting space with a touch of whimsy; and the game room with its grandiose fireplace, billiards table, poker table and board games. The Château is sprinkled with treasures ranging from original 18th centuryart pieces, to antiques and furnishings collected by the owner coming frommany corners of the world, including pieces by Serge Roche, Adenay, Picasso,and Georges Jouve.

Up the grand staircase, which preserves original carved sculptings, is the ‘piano nobile’ or the royal floor, hosting the five exquisitely decorated bedrooms.

Sleeping a total of 12 guests, the bedrooms, with ensuite bathrooms, were uniquely designed to the last detail, to bring out the allure of the original spaces, accentuated by a curated collection of antiques, lavish fabrics, furniture, rugs, and exquisite lighting. Each room offers a view over the vast meadows of the east side of the estate.

The Château estate offers every opportunity for relaxation and contemplation, nonetheless a leisurely stay can be complemented with more animated activities such as a tennis match, on the competition-grade tennis court surrounded by centuries-old cedar trees and just a one minute walk from the Château. Visit the property’s vegetable and orchard garden to pick seasonal fresh produce; dip in the pool and lounge under the sun while sipping a cocktail; take a long and adventurous walk through footpaths in the woods amid the towering trees, or kayak through the estate on the river Vonne.
