Chateau De Varennes: French Villa Offers Aristocratic Accommodations
Consider yourself among today’s aristocracy? The Chateau de Varennes may be perfect for you. The 17-bedroom luxury villa is located among the most prestigious of France’s country vineyards and exudes 18th Century elegance. Although the estate was owned for 300 years by the aristocratic Truchis family, it has recently been renovated to include a modern kitchen, 12 bathrooms, a swimming pool and designer interiors that stay true to the mansion’s grandiose history.
In spite of the estate’s authentic preservation, it offers modern amenities such as WiFi, a high-quality sound system and satellite television. Families with young children will enjoy the play room equipped with a flat-screen TV that accommodates any major game consoles, including Nintendo Wii, Xbox and Playstation.
The chateau’s 17 bedrooms offer a range of spaces from king suites to twin bedrooms, and each is refurbished to meet five-star hotel standards. The chateau is available to rent for professional or personal occasions and offers services to be expected from any five-star accommodation.
Guests’ luggage will be carried in by the houseboy, who will also act as the valet. Maids will bring guests freshly-squeezed juice poolside and clean guest rooms daily between breakfast and dinner. Meals are cooked by the villa chef, who can also cater to large groups for events.
The chateau’s own concierge service can also be used for large events, including weddings. In fact, CNN recently named the Chateau de Varennes one of the world’ Top 10 best wedding venues. Its large reception hall can accommodate up to 250 guests and its vineyard views provide for memorable wedding photos.
