Imagine yourself walking towards what looks like a bookcase at the end of a corridor, giving it a push and it swings gently open to reveal another lovely bedroom. Now you are in the east tower of the main château, built in the 18th century.
Wake up each morning and enjoy the sunrise over the château’s organic farmland. Hop out of bed and start the day on your own bedroom balcony, overlooking the stone barns and swimming pool to the arable fields beyond.
There’s a comfortable kingsize bed with quality bedlinen that will give you a dreamy night’s sleep. I love experimenting with eclectic decor, so I hope you will like the contrast between the old English Windsor armchair, the butterfly pictures from Central Africa and the provençal blinds, all pulled together with Farrow and Ball’s Parma grey walls.
Having lived and worked in many different countries over the last thirty years, you can be sure I could not resist bringing home a wonderful – and sometimes curious – collection of objects and memories. For instance, the Afghan rug may just look like a brown wool rug to you, but I bet you would never be able to guess it’s provenance?
If I told you that it was a gift from Colonel Ghaddafi’s Director of Prisons, you probably would not know quite what to think. Is your curiosity piqued? There are lots more stories to share with you when you come and stay. And by the way, contrary to what one might presume, the Libyan Director of Prisons was an honourable brave man. He risked his life many times using his role as prison director to shield ‘his’ prisoners from Ghaddafi’s wrath as much as he could. So hopefully when you feel the soft brown wool rug under your feet, you will look at it in a different light, knowing more about its story.
There are two separate bathrooms to choose from. One has a contemporary walk-in shower, basin and loo. The other has a traditional bath for a cosy soak by candlelight. There is an additional separate loo as well. All three rooms are only a few paces down the corridor from your ‘secret bedroom’.
Lots of small steps and uneven ground are all part of the charm of this ancient site, so enjoy its idiosyncrasies as you wander around gently.
