The Art of Life
The art of life is both a literal and figurative concept at Domaine des Etangs, where experiencing the arts, products, and ways of the French countryside is complemented by the physical creations of artists inspired by this special place. Art is everywhere, providing beauty and pause for reflection and reconnection: In nature, but also on the walls of the château and farm cottages, in the gardens and forest glades, and in La Laiterie, the on-site gallery hosting world class exhibitions.
Stay Between Heaven and Earth
Stay at Domaine des Etangs
Seemingly suspended in time, Domaine des Etangs offers the chance to slow down, to reconnect with nature, loved ones, and the self in an environment of abundant space, artfully designed. From the château with its seven suites, vast attic games room, and Gallo-Roman-inspired thermal baths, to the six Metairie cottages and The Longère’s four rustic suites, untouched original materials and witty art and experiences give the Domaine its curiosity and sense of discovery.
Housed within a centuries-old mill, Moulin des Etangs is the estate’s dedicated wellness center – a rustic, waterside space in harmony with nature and the terroir. Here, where the curative powers of the Earth are harnessed, a rich sense of history encourages reconnection with the very foundations of life. A range of experiences – from horse-riding to walks with forest wardens – encourage healing time in nature.
