The hThe gîte has 4 stars according to the national criteria of the tourist offices.
Originally from St Etienne, in the green Loire department, our family set its sights on the magnificent and entrancing region. Set within easy access to both mountain and ocean, and within almost touching distance of Spain, the beautiful countryside with its charm and tranquillity spoke to us of “la joie de vivre”.
So without further ado, in April 2020 we acquired Château d’Espalungue, our pride and joy. Since then we have undertaken sensitive and practical renovations to each of its rooms, ensuring comfort and serenity.
Our first rental offer includes the gîte, nestled on the second floor of the principal building, complete with a spa, a relaxation area, and with use of the swimming pool, the laundry room and with all the outdoor facilities that guests will be able to enjoy.
We value and respect our environment as much as possible favour local and organic produce carefully chosen by us. We’re not attached to the local infrastructure inso far as water is concerned, so pay particular attention to water cleanliness, taking great care with products used in our installations. We believe that your time at thew Chateau will be serene, and filled with pleasure. We look forward to welcoming you !
