My husband rented the Chateau de Brillac for a week for my birthday. What a fantastic idea that turned out to be! The castle is large with spacious rooms and it is a very beautiful building with a huge lawn (several acres around it). It has been completely renovated in the past 2 or 3 years. There were plenty of bedrooms (some are more luxurious than others) with updated bathrooms. Six bedrooms have their own bathroom. The dining room was enormous and we could all sit all of us easily. the kitchen was awesome. While it may not be very big, it has a great commercial stove, all the gadget/blenders etc that you can imagine as well as a lot of dishes, glasses, pots and pans. The owners (who live in an apartment in the castle) are very friendly and helpful. The pool was heated when we arrived (the weather was in the 70s) and the owner maintained it every day so it was spotless when we wanted to use it. The castle also had a hot tub, sauna, massage tables etc (we did not use this service but it was offered). The Chateau de Brillac is 10 minutes driving time to the lovely town of Jarnac, where you will find grocery stores, bakeries, post office and the Courvoisier Museum! Cognac is 20 minutes away by the national road. There are also a lot of beautiful little villages all around as well as beautiful walks through the wheat fields and vineyards. We had a wonderful time!
