House for rent from £ 582/day in Castelnau PicampeauName/Address: Chateau Siregarde
The property is entered through an impressive gate that leads into a circular courtyard.
The main door to the Chateau opens into the Grand Hallway which leads straight through to the park and garden.
On the south side is the dining room (seats 14 with a smaller table for 6 also available) and the three drawing rooms (a comfortable TV room, the elegant Blue Salon and the Music Room with its piano).
At the front of the chateau is the original 18th century terrace which is ideal for summer lunches.
The ground floor also has two bedrooms, all the remaining bedrooms are on the first floor.
The kitchen is a stunning 45 square metre room which is a pleasure to cook in.
The grand staircase leads to the first floor and to the Library and the eight upstairs bedrooms.
There are two extremely grand bedrooms with their own dressing rooms and bathrooms (Chambre Monsieur and Chambre Madame); two other large double bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms (in addition to one on the ground floor); a charming twin bedroom, and a further three single bedrooms, with shared bathroom.
The pool (heated to 27C) is out of sight from the chateau, yet only about one minutes walk from the garden side door.
The estate has a number of outbuildings in original condition, including a chapel, cottage, an 18th century dairy and a stable and farm building built in the early 19th century.
The chateau is set in roughly 50 acres of park and woodland, originally landscaped in the English fashion.
Many of the traces of original garden remain, including a 350 year old cedar tree, an alley tree, an alley of chestnut trees and an enormous pond where wild duck nest.
Early morning risers will regularly see deer grazing.
Around 25 acres of the grounds are unspoilt woods.
In spring and summer the pastures and woods are dotted with wild flowers, and in autumn wild mushrooms, including cêpes grow in abundance.
