Chateau de Sauge


Château de Saugé was rebuilt in 1607 by the Rion family. What was here before remains a mystery however we are researching the prior history with the help of a local history group. The more recent history in 1902 includes a significant rejuvenation including the addition of a third floor. Purchased by Paul & Donna Newman in October 2018 the Château in undergoing renovation and upgrading to provide a Chambre d’hôtes, event space and other accommodation.

The Starting Point

We originally viewed The Château on a cold and wet March morning in 2018 – the grey day did little to stop us falling in love with this beautiful property and its grounds.  Unfortunately a shadow of its former 19 hectares but still a beautiful jewel that should be seen and enjoyed by many.

Seven months after we saw the property a new Chapter in the life of Château de Saugé begins and for us The Starting Point of a long journey of restoration.


The Plans

Currently there are 8 bedrooms in the Château we have sacrificed a number of these in order to create bedrooms with en-suite facilities including a Wedding Suite with separate lounge area for those bridesmaids and a large luxurious en-suite, The Highlander Suite a large bedroom and huge luxury bathroom ideal for a romantic stay and a Woodland Family Suite which has two adjoining bedrooms. The Scullery has been transformed into a state of the art kitchen while retaining the period features along with the Saugé Vintage Tearoom
