Enchanting holiday apartments for 2 – 6 guests, all with private terrace and kitchen, in wonderful castle complex with magnificent pool, tennis, restaurant, boulodrome, outdoor chess. Ideal for couples and families with children.

The space

"Bandiagara“ for 4 guests - Just like coming home for a holiday:
This individually and very comfortably furnished apartment of approximately 90 m2 is spread over 3 levels with 2 bedrooms, bathroom, separate toilet, will fascinate you in many different ways: warm, natural colors, indirect lighting, and delightful niches inspire a natural atmosphere, just like the original Dogon-doors from Mali. Large, beautiful terrace with nice view over the valley.

Both wings of the Chateau have been rebuilt into spacious, extravagant apartments – each with open fireplace and separate patio – for 2, 4 or 6 guests. The apartments capture an aura of being remote from urban influence in a very special way; the unique atmosphere of the Chateau remains unchanged. The monumental, extravagant basic structures of the building have been maintained. All apartments have modern, well-equipped kitchens, with dishwasher, ceran hot plates, etc. Some of the apartments are designed after a certain motto: the historical background of the Chateau as place of refuge for victims of persecution in the Middle Ages and the colonial connections with Africa and Southeast Asia in the 19th century have been taken up for inspiration - not claiming to be ethnologically perfect. Other apartments are designed according to Mediterranean style. The names are taken from the surrounding castles of the Catharians; the names of the motto-inspired apartments are taken from the country they are referring to.

Guest access

The magnificent pool is available to all guests, just as the on-site restaurant, tennis court, boulodrome, outdoor chess, free parking, the Château park, promenades through our olive groves and vineyards within 70 hectares of private property.
