Property Description

Dating back to 1491, this superb château is set in 45 hectares of beautiful grounds, reached by a long private drive and impressive archway to the inner courtyard. The château has huge rooms, high ceilings and elegant furniture, plus a hectare of enclosed gardens. The cool stone walls and tiled floors downstairs create an atmosphere of regal elegance. Fief Gallet is registered in the listings of French Historic Buildings and the owners have been producing the well known Audry Edmond Cognac since 1878. This secluded holiday location is near the attractive town of Saintes. The beaches of Meschers and Royan are within easy reach as are the distilleries of Cognac. While touring this lovely region, be sure to look out for signs advertising Pineau de Charente; this local liqueur is used in many delicious recipes. The owners stay in a separate part of the château when customers arrive/depart.

  3. This is an excellent place to stay if you have children and you worry about wear and tear. Aug 2010.
  4. Quiet location, but near to Saintes for shopping, market,sightseeing, restaurants. Large spaces for games etc, excellent pool, with cover, which allows swimming under when weather adverse. Heating available which is very effective. July 2010.
  5. The best thing about this property are the gardens and the pool. The only inconvenience was that to get to some rooms you have to go through others. May 2010.
  6. A lovely property with nice owners. Could not recommend it more. We had a brilliant time and thanks to one and all for all their help. Lovely break in Bordeaux. Sept 2009.
  7. Very grand, excellent swimming pool, relaxing. Aug 2009.
  8. A truly stunning house and location. Our party ranged from 9 to 64 and we all had an excellent time. Many thanks to the family for such a wonderful time. May 2009.
  9. The chateau is set amid sunflower fields and dates from 1500’s. It is large and with enough rooms that 11 of us didn’t feel crowded at any time. Aug 2009.
  10. A most relaxing week, the owner was more than helpful, but unobtrusive. We will definately use this property & your company again & will tell our friends. July 2006.
