Gardens and Grounds
Chateau la Briance is nestled amidst the beautiful French countryside in seven acres of private and secluded luscious green grounds. When you enter through the chateau’s electric gates you will be greeted by the wonderful sight of the historic dwelling filling the landscape in front of you. Our pair of canons is one of the first features you will see when entering the estate and represent the chateau’s unique fairytale atmosphere that is steeped in history.
You and your loved ones are free to explore the extensive gardens and discover at your leisure the array of surprises that await, including our canons, colourful flowers, summer gazebo and friendly animals. The entire estate is securely fenced so if you have your little ones with you, you can relax in the knowledge they’re completely safe exploring the grounds (please note we have a fenced swimming pool).
As you wander around the perfectly secluded lawns, meadows and woodland, you’ll be transported to a haven of tranquillity where the only noises you’re likely to hear are alluring birdsong, the gentle grazing of the horses and donkey and the delicate trickling of the water fountain – the perfect place to relax and unwind.
Swimming Pool & Tennis Court
If you’re looking for a little more action, you can take a dip in our large swimming pool (open April – September) and then soak up the sun on our comfy loungers. We also have a tennis court which is available for a fun game or two (though perhaps not for those whose skills rival Federer and Nadal’s!). At night, the gardens are illuminated by the beautiful twinkling of fairy lights that are draped among the ancient trees and around the 18th century chateau to create a splendid display of light and colour.
A highlight of our gardens is the magnificent Orangey, a stunning building which transports you back in time to all the opulence and elegance of 18th century France. As this is such an exquisite location, the Orangery hosts our wedding reception for parties of between 40 and 80 people and is an ideal setting for creating a day you and your guests will never forget.
