A rural stay at a family-friendly converted castle in the French countryside - with breakfast, spa perks, and an optional dinner
- With a weekly changing menu, the restaurant at Hotel The Originals Domaine du Normandoux serves a selection of local and seasonal produce in a fresh and elegant way. In fine weather, meals can be taken on the terrace, and if the weather doesn’t oblige you’ll dine in the renovated 13th- century manor house.
- For the adults, the Cinq Mondes Spa has an indoor swimming pool, massage pool and hammam and offers a range of treatments that include Ayurvedic, Oriental and Polynesian beauty rituals as well as beauty treatments and couples massages.
- For the kids, you’ll find an exciting outdoor play area hidden in the grounds, complete with a zipwire to get their hearts racing. Biking, volleyball, boules and padel are also available, and the 56- hectare estate is home to horses, sheep, pygmy goats, donkeys and even llamas.
- Original features like exposed wooden beams and stone floors perfectly compliment the modern upgrade of this former castle’s bedrooms. All rooms come with a kitchen area, a terrace and a small garden, and House rooms can sleep up to five people, so there’s room for the whole family.
- Spa and wellness facilities
- In-door pool
- Outdoor pool
- Kids’ playground
How to get there
Hotel The Originals Domaine du Normandoux is located in the Vienne region of France, roughly a one-hour 45-minute drive from Tours and just under two hours from La Rochelle. The nearest airport is in La Rochelle. Public transport is scarce in this area, so we recommend hiring a car to make the most of this beautiful region.
