Guests have the use of the Logis du Paradis’ private salt water open air swimming pool in the Summer, located in a secluded and sunny enclosed garden with chairs, tables and sun loungers. There is a solar shower along with assorted inflatables and water toys for the children. The pool garden has a doorway through into the walled park as well as an entrance into the private bar area.

Le Grand Chai

The “big chai” is our function room come games room, it forms part of the 19th century cognac distillery buildings and would have been used to house cognac barrels. It has a full size snooker table, table tennis and a host of other outdoor toys available for children to use. 

For weddings, family parties and functions Le Grand Chai can be transformed into a dining hall with comfortable seating for up to one hundred guests. The big chai also has ladies, gents and disabled toilet facilities.

The Park

The Park which is now laid to grass used to be a huge potager. 

 There is a croquet lawn, tree house and swings, bicycles to use. Secure within the walls, children can run free in the three hectares of garden.

There are two lovely avenues of Lime and Hornbeam trees under which we frequently host summer barbecues for our guests.


Food & Drink

Breakfast is served either in the guests’ dining room or on the south-facing terrace overlooking the Logis’ courtyard. Breakfast includes fresh fruit juices, yoghurt, fresh fruit, French bread and croissants, butter, jams, and of course our delicious own honey, and tea coffee or hot chocolate.

We are happy to recommend and make reservations for you at local restaurants.  On request, we can also provide a light poolside lunch or a four-course candle-lit dinner on the terrace under the stars.
 With our newly installed potager, we aim to offer guests even more home-grown produce in the future.   

We also have a private bar available for functions and parties.
