A perfect combination of two 18th century chais, L’Orangerie and La Musique, uniquely joined together by opening up an ancient hidden door on the first floor. With 16 en-suite bedrooms, sleeping 32, it provides an ideal venue for large groups. A professional standard kitchen (and chef if needed) allows catering for all guests eating together in a large convivial dining room. The enormous music salon is ideal for celebrations and meetings. Additional management and support services are available to enable clients to create a magical experience. Les Chais is notable for having three exceptional pianos, including a Steinway D, available for a fee to qualified musicians, two securitised swimming pools, a tennis court and a wide range of sporting facilities. Walking distance to local village, Gensac, with bars, restaurants, and 25 minutes by car from the beautiful and historic wine town of Saint-Emilion. Riding, golf, canoeing, fishing are all nearby.
