We ate at The Domaine des Etangs on a dull Sunday in November.The surroundings of the restaurant are so beautiful as it is situated next to the chateau of the hotel.It looks as if the restaurant could have been the stables to the chateau. The restaurant has a nice bar area for pre dinner drinks and a lovely view of...

Eight of us descended on the restaurant here for lunch on a rainy day in November. I would love to come here in the spring/autumn as the grounds looked wonderful, even in the rain. The restaurant building has been beautifully restored/converted and is just perfect. As was the food and our host. The food was delicious, beautifully presented and on...

Michelin starred restaurant in beautifully converted 18th century buildings which also house 5 star hotel. The restaurant achieves the highest level of service without ostentation or pretence. Views from the building over the adjacent lake are superb.

Their website is impressive, but barely captures the magnificence of the property and can only suggest the care and talent devoted to the chateau's restoration. We had booked the small cottage, but finding it remote moved into the chateau's Mars room. Noting a TV remote but no TV, we discovered a second small remote. Upon pushing a button, a large...

Le Domaine des Etangs is truly unique. Contrary to some Relais & Chateaux, every detail in this castle and in the property reflect not only major investment but good taste. Walking in the park is an adventure as you are surrounded by so much history. As you walk by the River La Moulde, my imagination went wild : a dolmen,...

Had a wonderful three days here that was just perfect for decompressing. The "hotel" is huge yet intimate, a place of dreamy refuge, I biked around to get a sense of the lush landscape but also took one of their electric cars out for a spin, the Domaine has over 30 km of roads, an enormous property that would take...

Delicious elegance! From setting to service, presentation, and quality...this was the kind of lunch that will be remembered as the benchmark of perfection. I look forward to revisiting the grounds on a sunny day. Even in teeming rain, the views of castle and lake were exquisite. The grounds are perfectly maintained, turning our umbrella-assisted stroll to the restaurant into a...

Seabass with an intriguingly delicate sauce of fresh maise jus. The veggie sweetness of the grain beautifully flattered the natural flavour of the fish without overwhelming it. Next up, a miniature rack of lamb anointed with a delicious crust of pureed black garlic that came with garnishes of fava beans and mashed potatoes. Who could not praise the cheese tray...

This is one of the most beautiful restaurants I've visited in France yet. On the grounds of a beautiful and superbly renovated chateau, surrounded by rolling fields and overlooking a beautiful lake, the restaurant is truly superb. We've eaten here twice now, both for special occasions (it isn't a low cost resto!) and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience each time....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In the heart of the Charente Limousine region, a stone's throw away from Angouleme, on the edge of Massignac village, discover Domaine des Etangs. With its 1000 hectares of woods, its sunken paths and clear ponds protected by its chateau and its 7 cottages spread across the infinite surrounding meadows, Domaine des Etangs is as intimate for a couple, as it is simple and serene for a family, limitless and open for a seminar. Forget the days which fly by and make the most of the natural beauty of a timeless domaine. Enjoy its spaces of bien-etre scattered right up to inside its mill, its tennis court floating on water, its restaurant overlooking the valley, the covert Roman baths and open-air swimming pool in the height of the summer... Let the flight of the dragonfly, hostess of the domaine, guide you to a simple, peaceful and pleasant well-being. ... more   less
