About the property

The ground floor has 5 rooms:

- The Chai : with its huge old stone fireplace and stone floor. Here in the summer the room stays cool and is a great place to relax away from the hot sun.

- The kitchen : fairly small comparativley but well equiped with nice modern appliances, no shortage of crocery or glasses, and for big dinner parties, you'll be glad to find the dishwasher.

- The entry hall : boasting wood panels that date back into the XVIIc.

In the heart of the Cognac region, between Bordeaux and the Loire Valley, the Château de Port Hublé is ideally situated for many activities in the Poitou-Aquitaine region: Futurescope, Golf and great French countryside

About dom hutton

Originally from Sheffield, I moved to France in the 90's. I currently work in Paris in the TV broadcast industry, as a sound engineer and camera operator.

dom hutton purchased this castle in 2013

Why dom hutton chose Chaniers

We saw the property in the summer of 2013 and fell in love with it. With its huge but elegant facade overlooking the lush garden with a fantastic view of the Charante river and surrounding countryside. But also much older parts of the building which would prove to be interesting restoration challenges.

We purchased the property in 2013, and subsequently embarked on a huge renovation project. Today we feel its time to share the fruits of our hard labour with people who would enjoy a group holiday in this romantic and original setting.

What makes this castle unique

There are so many different aspects to this place that different people would remember differernt things. One thing for sure is that the house has a soul. A kind soul. You may not want to leave after your stay!
