The Experience

The roots of Domaine des Etangs go back an astounding 700 years. First built in the 13th century by the knights of Chasteignier de la Roche-Posay and their families, the Château has been the site of historic drama, from its time as a stronghold to its seizure by royal bailiffs to its eventual conversion to a family home and final refurbishment. The buildings you see today, immaculately restored and carefully modernized to harmonize with the environment, once housed King Richard the Lionheart. Learn compelling details about the Domaine’s turbulent history and how its original architectural elements have been preserved on this expertly guided tour.
