1/1
Located on the Dordogne Charente border, and close to some of the quaintest villages in France, sits the Château Charmant.

A beautiful Chateau surrounded by immaculate grounds. The Chateau has a 4 star interior and along with the tastefully renovated barn, the gardens, the heated pool and the general ambience, this property is a must to consider for your perfect French wedding. 

With stunning grounds and opulently decorated interior spaces it is the perfect combination
of country living with interior chic. The gite in the grounds makes self-catering possible and the remainder of the 28 guests who can be housed onsite, stay in the main château building.

Whilst the château is large is size and formal in appearance (great for events),
the interiors are cosy and it is therefore the perfect combination of homely and stately.


It is also extremely good value for the price – allowing a high end private hire event at reasonable prices.

THE PARK

As the seasons change, so do the animal and bird species that visit us, including red squirrels, deer and hares. Our park makes a great spot for observing the animals.

The park also lies on a popular migratory route for cranes, offering front-row seats to a spectacular wildlife phenomenon! The green setting of the château is composed of an arboretum planted in the 19th century by the Marquis de Natte.

The park is home to plane trees, giant sequoias, chestnut trees, oaks, beeches and truffle trees.

HISTORY

Less than two kilometres from the centre of Petit-Bersac and hidden in the shade of a large park with century-old trees is an elegant Renaissance-style residence.

The origin of the château goes back to the Gallo-Roman period. The château is home to many remnants of the 15th and 16th centuries and an important restoration operation has been carried out to preserve them.

The archives of the Marquis de Cumond allow us to trace the history of the château to 1509.

It can also be established that, in 1765, an ancestor of the Marquis de Cumond married
Marie Jacqueline Augustine de La Cropte de Chantérac, daughter of François David de La Cropte de Chantérac, descendant of the Marshal of Aubeterre.

The Château was attributed to Louisa Mathilde Marie du Lau d'Allemans in 1861 by her father. She was born in 1840 and married Pierre Marie Béranger in Paris. He was the Marquis de Nattes, born on May 25th 1829 in Montpellier.

The family left a very vivid mark on the commune and some "elders" still speak of them. Much has been chronicled about the character and behaviour of the marquise and how she lived among her dogs and monkeys, the names of which have been passed down to many of us.

There was the unbearable Sarah and also Romeo and Juliet who wandered in the countryside, to the great displeasure of the peasants. The marquise rode on horseback, hunted and fished with her faithful butler Jean Virecoulon.

These distractions did not prevent her from taking an interest in literature and history. She also had a passion for flowers and orchids, which she grew in real laboratories.

Legend has it that her greenhouse contained wonders, including rare species of flowers from Mexico, Colombia and Guatemala. She also had a singular Bulbophyllum odoratum from India, a gift from her son.

 

A photograph shows her in the Amazon!
She is with her son, who was dressed in a dragon outfit and was carrying a helmet and a sword.

"Toutvent", the family home of President François Mitterrand is just a stone's throw from the château.

He frequently stayed here, enjoying the peaceful setting of our premises with his Labradors in the Grande Allée.

Closed in 1997, The Château was completely renovated before its reopening in 2005
and a new standardisation in 2010.

With its sense of opulence and green setting, the château attracts many nature lovers.
