Open the doors of Castel Braz

Open the doors of Castel Braz

A stay at Castel Braz is an opportunity to meet people, exchange ideas and sometimes even debate! In a family atmosphere, the comfort of the house and the hospitality of its owners make it a moment apart, as if you were at home.

Also known as the Grand Château, Castel Braz is an elegant house built at the end of the 19th century.

Meticulously restored, its architecture, imposing, striking façade and charming rooms are in keeping with the style of exceptional houses. The décor is a striking blend of the old and the new.

The ornamental garden, enclosed by stone walls, and its terrace are an invitation to relax and awaken the senses.

The dining room

Welcome to the dining room of the house! This is where breakfast is shared around a large table and a well-stocked buffet. It’s a great time to meet up and chat, in a family atmosphere, just like at home!

Snuggled up by the fire in winter or cosy up in the cool of the house in summer, you’ll find snacks and drinks to enhance your stay from the moment you arrive.

It’s also here that you can unfold maps and charts of the region to study and prepare excursions and curiosities to discover, or to find out about the best addresses and favourites of the house.

A library of travel, cookery and gardening books and board games are also available.

A majestic staircase leads to the bedrooms on the upper floors. Each landing has its own entertainment options, with comic books, board games and the house’s own toy creations on display.

The garden

Lounging or having breakfast in the ornamental garden surrounded by stone walls… it’s like being in a bubble, sheltered from the hustle and bustle of the city and the tourists.

A veritable ornamental garden, the courtyard has been skilfully landscaped to create a haven of peace and to suspend time. Whether you’re sitting under an arbour, on a deckchair or simply at the table, having breakfast or a snack, the courtyard is an inviting place to relax and forget about the clock.

The flowers here are abundant and cheeky, and the luxuriant vegetation reflects the region’s climate.

If you’re a plant lover, you’re in for a treat!
