Chateau Mareuil is situated in the Vienne region of the Poitou Charentes, a beautiful part of France just south of the Loire Valley and north of the Dordogne. The climate is "Mediterranean", long hot Summers and very short sharp cold Winters. We have known the temperature in August to hover around 36 degrees. Set in beautiful gardens, each season brings forth something lovely to look at and eat!
Things to see and do
The Chateau is set high and built upon a rock with lovely views over the surrounding countryside and our own private river. Nearest towns are:-
We are surrounded by pretty villages and there are several lakes for swimming and water sports within a short distance. There are beautiful chateaux to see and visit at Bourg Archambault, Azay Le Ferron and Lignac (Chateau Guillaume). We can highly recommend the Michelin acclaimed restaurant "Les Orangeries" at Lussac les Chateaux.
