Château de Saugé

Donna and Paul would like to welcome you to Château de Saugé.

Situated in the beautiful rural countryside of the Deux Sevres region. 

Château de Saugé was built in 1607 and stands in over 4 acres of beautiful rural gardens with large pond.  Due to its elevated position it presides over the surrounding fields and local towns.

The castle itself is flanked by picturesque outbuildings with a beautiful inner courtyard. 

Our restoration began as soon as we moved in on the 31 October 2018 and has continued 24/7 since, we have now completed the Daughter’s Wing with a self-contained one bedroomed apartment and a serene 2 bedroomed luxury Woodland Suite with a double and two single French ancient beds and boasts a decadent en-suite bathroom with double slipper bath.

Our restoration continues with a Victoria Suite a beautiful double aspect room with lavish fittings in golds and reds, opulence at its best.  The Napoleon Suite will follow as well as The Stable Gite.  Two further suites The Royale and The Highlander will follow later this year.

We opened a Vintage Tearoom in November 2019 serving the most wonderful Traditional Afternoon Teas every Friday, Saturday Sunday and Monday from 10am – 5pm this will be extended during the summer months to take advantage of the wonderful sunshine and views from our Terrace.  Seating within the Tearoom up to 40 (including the Breakfast Room) and a further 30 on the Terrace.

Plans are proceeding also with our Barn refurbishment which will become a further Event Venue for weddings, birthdays etc.

We have created a traditional but comfortable lounge for all Chambres D’Hôtes guests and as an Event area it includes a large TV, and WiFi is available throughout the property.

We were welcomed by an extremely warm couple who did everything they could to give us satisfaction despite the language barrier. The apartment is spacious, very bright, comfortable and tastefully decorated. We had chosen to have breakfast. The table was nicely prepared, no ingredients were missing, bread, pastries, jam, honey, ham, cheese and even fresh eggs from the hens raised on site! We were delighted with the 2 days spent at the Château de Saugé, we would be happy to have the opportunity to stay there again. A big thank you to Donna and Paul for their kindness!

A very warm welcome from Donna & Paul, the vintage tea room was perfect, for afternoon tea we had delicious sandwiches, savouries, cakes & scones washed down with tea or coffee with ambient background music. Would definitely recommend visiting (but check they have space via their website first). We will definitely be going back 😀

Lovely Tea Room. Beautiful homemade cakes and a wide selection of teas to enjoy, either inside or on the terrace. With a naturally warm welcome thrown in for good measure. Wheelchair friendly access.

You cannot go to western France and not pay this marvellous tearoom a visit. You will not find another like it anywhere else in Europe. Food, service, hospitality and ambiance are spectacular

Lovely afternoon tea. Great selection of cakes all home made. Great Venue even on a wet miserable day in December. In the words of the 38th Governor of California "I'll be back"

A lovely cosy vintage tearoom, with a warm welcome from Donna. Scrumptious afternoon tea with a great selection of quiche, sandwiches, scones with clotted cream ! and 4 delicious home made cakes. A real treat and a lovely way to pass a couple of hours on a grey Winter's afternoon. I highly recommend a visit.

Stopped here for breakfast. Beautiful old building. Great service and free refills of hot water for the tea pot. Full English breakfast of sausage, bacon, eggs, mushrooms, beans, tomatoes and toast was lovely and hit the spot. Paul and Donna were really friendly and place is a credit to them. Would love to return in the summer for afternoon tea.

Had afternoon tea for my birthday today and it was perfect. I even got a sparkler in my scone. Beautiful cheese scones, savoury tarts, scones with jam and clotted cream and the cakes were to die for. Couldn’t eat it all so Donna wrapped it up to take away

The minute we drove through the wooden gates we were greeted with smiles and impeccable service. We were given a grand tour by the owners...we were amazed at the history of the Chateau, the renovations being done, and the natural beauty of the grounds. We stayed in the beautifully decorated, Daughters Wing, where we rested well from our long trip. The accommodations were very comfortable and plush! Love, love, love the Vintage Tea Room...decorated in calming blues. Donna, served up a splendid breakfast! I did bring home, homemade Cherry and Apple preserves made from the fruit trees grown on the grounds...delicious! We enjoyed our stay at the Chateau, shopping in the near by shops, and eating at the restaurants. Looking forward to returning soon!
