Bienvenu au Château la Briance

Welcome to Chateau la Briance, an enchanting 18th century chateau in the Limousin region of southwest France available for private holiday bookings. The Chateau is also available for private hire such as Weddings, Anniversaries and special events.

Dating all the way back to 1740, Chateau la Briance is found nestled on the outskirts of the French countryside village of St Hilaire Bonneval and is just a short drive away from the lively city of Limoges and its international airport. Spread across 800 square metres, four floors, seven available ensuite bedrooms, a range of living spaces and seven acres of gloriously green grounds, the chateau has been lovingly restored to reflect its traditional French charm. 

This luxury boutique accommodation is bursting with beautiful authentic features, including exposed original stonework, stained glass windows and intricate murals, which combine to create the chateau’s unique historical atmosphere.

To learn more about our bedrooms or to make a booking, please don’t hesitate to get in touch today.

The perfect retreat

The ground floor is host to our communal areas consisting of Hel’s kitchen, large dining room and the first reception room which takes you to the rear of the building. There are two more lounges on this floor as well as the armoury with its incredible six-metre-tall fireplace (which has to be seen to be believed!). The armoury is also our bar where you can enjoy the perfect relaxing evening in the chateau with a glass or two of local wine or a delicious cocktail.

The first and second floors are our gorgeous guest rooms; the first is host to the Joan of Arc, Richard the Lionheart, Napoleon and Marie Antoinette suites while the second floor boasts our sumptuous bridal suite, the Louis XIV suite, as well as the Renoir and Monet suites. 

Surrounded by the enchanting French countryside, Chateau la Briance is also available for exclusive hire and makes the perfect setting for a truly unforgettable wedding, celebration or retreat.
