Château de Maumont - Boutique château-hotel - Charente
A romantic escape to the Angoulême
In the heart of the Périgord region, Château de Maumont stands as a historical jewel set in a six-acre park. Its elegance, inherited from the 16th century, is a celebration of meticulous detail. Mullioned windows, gargoyles, and a coat-of-arms adorning the door will pique any visitor’s curiosity. A 14th-century tower and a chapel add a mysteriously historical touch.
This château is a beautiful refuge filled with symbolism. The five rooms, decorated with antique furniture, are cocoons where modernity and tradition meet. Each one pays tribute to a writer or a poet who left their mark on the region. The art objects, the books on the shelves, and the musical instruments whose ancient melodies can almost still be heard, all are a love letter to the soul of Maumont.
But the charm doesn’t stop there! Nearby, the treasures of the Angoulême region await. The Château de la Rochefoucauld, a Renaissance gem, reveals its centuries-old secrets. The walls of the Aubeterre church whisper ancient stories, while the Abbey of Saint Amant de Boixe offers a uniquely mystical experience. At Château de Maumont, history speaks from the heart.
