An exceptional stay in a historic monument near Poitiers. The subtle flavours of a gourmet restaurant. Welcome to Christophe Bouvier's hotel.
“The pleasure of hosting, the joy of sharing.”
Already owner of a hotel in Normandy, Christophe wanted to take over an exceptional building. “A unique place for a unique experience!” They found it in 2016 in the commune of Dissay, within easy reach of Futuroscope (Vienne). A chateau which is listed as a historic monument and dates back to the 15th century. “As well as having the character, we immediately saw the potential”. A 6-hectare estate, rare moats, a great capacity for guests, stained glass windows and frescos from the 15th century.... Two years of work were needed to restore the prestige of this place which now has 5 stars above the entrance. “For us, it was not about revolutionising it but about keeping the character and soul of the place.” 33 rooms have been installed, a gourmet restaurant has opened and a 430m2 spa has been set up in the old wine house. The verdict of the first guests: a memorable experience.
Enjoy the luxury in one of the hotel’s 25 rooms and 8 suites. Each room is unique and displays sophisticated decor in great French style (period furniture, toile de Jouy fabric, marble fireplaces...). The spacious rooms are all located within the chateau, with views out over the 6-hectare esta
Weather permitting, you can sit out on the courtyard’s shaded terrace to eat your breakfast, lunch or dinner. Otherwise you can sit in the wonderful dining hall, featuring a huge Aubusson tapestry. A continental buffet in the morning, gourmet flavours for lunch and dinner. For those looking for somewhere to relax and socialise, head to the chateau’s old billiards room where you will find the bar and its precious nectars (in moderation).
The chateau’s restaurant menu changes every fortnight. The highly inspired young chef and his team will offer you elegant and tasty cuisine combining modernity, the right balance of flavours and carefully selected products, most of which are local. Dishes as beautiful as they are delicious with attractive deals for lunches during the week.

Upon arriving the castle was elegantly bathing in the sun. We parked, got to the reception where we were given a great tower room (with fire place), overlooking the garden. We had a wonderful dinner in the amazing restaurant. It really felt totally in style - Dissay being the formal residence of the Bishops of Poitiers before the French Revolution. The next day we enjoyed a top breakfast, visited the old chapel with wonderful mural paintings and then left.
we can recommendate this hotel for the wonderful details, the bois and the excellent food.
