Experience a film star lifestyle in a French chateau

One Off Places, the website for unique and distinctive holiday rentals, is pleased to announce the arrival of Chateau de la Couronne, an urban chic nine bedroom chateau in France’s Poitou-Charentes.

Here you will find a trendy oasis of urban chic in a traditional ancient French Chateau.  Ornate antiques rub shoulders with abstract modern art, 60s and 70s design icons and commissioned pieces, all framed by the Chateau’s immaculately restored original features.

There is sleeping accommodation for up to 26 in individually designed and furnished bedrooms, and the bathrooms are completely over the top – some with two baths, some utilising the Chateau Turrets. There are three voluminous salons for guest use, one with a bar, one with a baby grand piano. And if that’s not enough, there is also a private cinema, a billiard room, a music area with guitars, amps and keyboards and a games room.

Outside in the 5 acres of private grounds are two terraces with tables and parasols, and a 14.5m heated swimming pool nestled amongst the mature trees.  The Chateau is a 25 minute drive from Angouleme, which has an airport and a TGV station.

Exclusive hire of the chateau is £10,720 a week (or £1790 a night) - £415 per head per week if split between 26.

For more information on these and other luxury offerings, including a barn conversion in Norfolk with banqueting hall and cathedral-like minstrels gallery, a Catalan manor house outside Barcelona and a 17th century Umbrian villa sleeping 25, visit:
