Le Domaine des Etangs Hotel

Last Sunday Charlotte received a call from a dear friend, one of those ladies who is always in the ‘know.’  Slim is the epitome jetset.  Anyway, she had news for Charlotte and stated: “I have discovered a most fabulous hotel, a fairytale French retreat that has the Carltons ‘uniqueness’ stamp all over it, and you must come at once to see this charming property.”

Slim, marvelous call on … Le Domaine des Etangs is an 11th-century French chateau set on 2,000 acres of woodland, which recently opened under the ownership of Didier Primat’s daughter, Garance, as a freshly unique luxury hotel.


Le Domaine des Etangs is a meticulously restored country retreat with sweeping grounds and magical setting between forest and lake.

The interior is contemporary with a rustic, French county design.  The exclusive bedrooms have exposed beams, stone fireplaces plus all the modern amenities one comes to expect in a luxury retreat.

Le Domaine des Etangs is located in Massignac, a quaint village about four hours from Pairs.  LIN-29_P
