Stay at Château Alizés

As you wake gently from a relaxing night’s sleep in a luxuriously comfortable bed, the aroma of freshly baked, delicious sweet pastries and freshly brewed coffee drift through your suite - the perfect way to start your morning. Opening the doors onto your own private courtyard, the first decision of the day. Do you enjoy breakfast in the comfort of your surroundings, overlooking a peacefully serene river, or do you join your fellow guests for a delightful breakfast in the gardens?

After a leisurely breakfast, your host escorts you on a private tour of picturesque medieval villages, cathedrals and world-renowned vineyards where you can enjoy sampling some of the region’s finest wines. What better way to appreciate the fine art of winemaking?

Returning to the Château, you are met by a mouthwatering spread for lunch, the flavors of the region entice your palate as you decide on the afternoon’s excitement and adventure. A lawn sports tournament with your new friends? Perhaps the chance to spend some quality time with a loved one exploring the stunning grounds? Or if you are looking for some adventure, why not grab a paddle board or kayak and see where the river takes you? Enjoy activities to suit your needs, simply relax and unwind in the tranquility of our 17th-century Château or get active, explore and have fun - the choice is yours!

As evening falls, your in-house private chef prepares a sumptuous evening feast for you and your fellow guests. You discover the perfect way to relax involves a glass of something light, zesty and chilled overlooking the peacefully serene river, watching the sun set over the horizon. Over a delectable dinner of freshly sourced local produce, including duck, foie gras, and truffles to name a few, you recount to fellow guests how you discovered the hidden secrets of Rhum Cay, our islet hideaway! Retiring to the comfort of your elegantly decorated suite, as your head hits the pillow, you begin to dream about what adventures await you tomorrow...

The Sturgeon caviar farm was fun and informative. In Perigaux beside the market, we walked to the Roman ruin museum which was fascinating. Wished we had more time there.
