Who hasn’t dreamed of living in or visiting a French Château?  The word “château” in itself conjures up images of Marie Antoinette, chandeliers, manicured grounds and the world famous Château of Versailles.   Thanks to the interest which has been created by the Channel 4 series “Escape to the Château” and “Escape to the Château DIY” many of these amazing estates are now being restored to their former glory.  The stars of the Channel 4 series Dick and Angel Strawbridge have been the inspiration for others to take on the daunting task of renovating these belles maisons.

As a result, French châteaux have become a popular venue for weddings, retreats, and other special events.  Many château owners offer B&B opportunities, as well as special events such as garden parties, high teas, and open houses.

In October, ChateauxEscapesFrance.com is excited to offer fun, themed “activity” weekend Escapes in various French châteaux which have been selected for ease of access from the UK.  The Escapes are designed for those of us aged 50 and better and are perfect for, as for example, groups of ladies traveling together, as well as singles or couples since both private and shared accommodations are available.

Imagine yourself enjoying a unique “aqua sonic massage” soaking in the sounds of Tibetan and Crystal Singing Bowls whilst floating in the indoor heated LED lit pool at the Château de Montvason pictured – just one of the pleasures you will enjoy at ChateauxEscapesFrance weekend escapes.
