Surrounded by a wooded park of 22 acres, Chateau Paradis is a gorgeous holiday and wedding venue dating back to the 16th century and fully refurbished in 2016.

The Protestant lawyer, author of works of jurisprudence and writings in the Poitevin dialect, Jean Boiceau was born here in 1513. In the 19th century, the chateau was bought by the Du Verrier de Boulzat family, who built a modern castle near to the old building.

The remaining bedrooms and bathrooms are spread over the first and second floors, each of which boast a lounge. Each room has been decorated with great care and tastefully furnished with antiques. The decor remains faithful to the 19th century but with an elegant and modern touch. There are 10 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms.
