|16380, Marthon, Charente, Poitou-Charentes, FRANCE.|
Description: Château de la CouronneChateau de la Couronne is a rarity. A boutique Chambre d´Hote, peaceful and relaxing without being isolated, it sits in its own park on the edge of a typically French village, close to the lively city of Angouleme.
With backgrounds in fashion and television, the owners have produced a stylish, fashionable retreat where original high ceilings, exposed stone walls and huge fireplaces combine with an eclectic blend of ornate antiques, 60´s and 70´s design classics, commissioned pieces and original art. Obsession with detail is also evident in the attentive, discrete service: never austere, guests immediately feel like part of the growing Chateau de la Couronne family.
It has such appeal that it has been used in films and television, and is becoming a beloved oasis for discerning, diverse clientele, from film directors to families, all seeking countryside calm with urban facilities and style.
