Spa & Relaxation Active

Domaine des Etangs hosts a variety of luxury rooms, suites, and standalone cottages. Within the chateau, step back in time within the thick stone walls, turrets reaching into the sky and beamed wooden ceilings. Cosy and oh so French, the suites have been individually designed with their own unique charm. The Longere, built in the authentic rural Charente style, juxtaposes the traditional exterior with the contemporary interior design of its four Junior Suites, dedicated to the passage of time and colours of nature. Or choose from one of the gorgeous farmhouse cottages in the grounds of the Domaine, perfect for couples or groups up to 10.

The sweeping grounds at the hotel provide a nature-filled playground for guests. Learn about the local fauna and flora and take a guided tour around the on-site farm. Set sail out on the lake on a small boat or try your hand at fishing. From refreshing morning hikes and cycling trails to horse riding and tennis, there really is plenty to experience. But then again, with views like these, you may just wish to simply sit back, unwind and soak up the calming energy of Domaine des Etangs.

The Moulin des Etangs is the hotel’s wellness hub. Sitting by the calming lakeside, the former mill has been converted into a spellbinding spa with five treatment rooms and a menu of unique treatments. Nature sits at the heart of the spa, with treatments to help reconnect and harmonise, inspired by natural elements. Domaine des Etangs also boasts a range of thermal baths, including an indoor pool, steam rooms and a frigidarium.

Quietly nestled away from the hustle and bustle of the world, Domaine des Etangs sits in the heart of the Charente-Limousine countryside, among the rolling green hills. The region is less visited than Dordogne and the scenery is quite simply unrivalled. The small village of Massignac is close enough for a cycling day trip and the cities of Limoges and Angouleme are just a drive away.

Highly acclaimed Dyades restaurant has sustainability right at the heart of its menu. The importance of balance and harmony is felt throughout the hotel and the same can be said for its restaurant, where the mouth-watering dishes pay thanks to the fresh ingredients grown in the hotel’s organic gardens. We can also arrange for a delicious picnic for you to enjoy whilst out on your adventures around the countryside.
