About this listing
A beautiful Chateau in the heart of the Auvergne, France. It sleeps up to eighteen guests, and we are happy to provide special, lower price offers for those staying at least five nights, as well as for smaller groups of people.
After a period of intense renovation the beautiful Chateau Giat is now available for rental. The property has a swimming pool, 8 bedrooms, four bathrooms, and will comfortably sleep up to 16 people.
The chateau belonged, until recently, to the 'De-Noblat' family. It's last noble occupant being a Count in 1995. Historically the family were at Court in the palace of Versailles.
The property is set within 29,000 square metres of grounds, and the grand staircase is made from local volcanic rock.
The chateau sits on the top of a hill overlooking the small market town below. To the rear are views over the surrounding countryside and forests, yet it is within easy walking distance of all amenities.
The local town hosts one of the largest markets in the region every two weeks throughout the year. It also has antiques fairs, and other events such as the classic car fete and grand town fete which lasts for three days in August. The area boasts numerous mountains and nearby lakes, one of which has a small beach area for swimming.
Local activities include fishing, horse-riding, balloon flights, 'Volcania' museum and theme park, skiing in the winter at the beautiful Mont Dor resort, and the city of Clermont Ferrand, which has many shops, restaurants, a historic centre and the most fantastic gothic cathedral.
Chateau Giat is a wonderfully relaxing countryside retreat, perfect for families or groups of friends who'd like to get away from it all, whilst being within driving distance of lively towns.
No smoking/pets in the house. We also ask guests to respect the neighbours during the night and not to disturb them with excess noise.
