Welcome to

Domaine du Normandoux, The Originals Relais (Relais du Silence)

Your relax hotel near Poitiers

An exceptional destination tucked away in a 56-hectare estate. Quiet, somewhere to recharge and great food. Welcome, you have arrived in Poitou-Charentes.

“The pleasure of new encounters and a wealth of services for the very best of stays.” 

In a harmonious natural setting, you can recharge your batteries, let go and prepare your memories. Originally from the tip of Brittany and a former sailor, the new director Sébastien and the owners fell in love with this haven of peace. A former castle, the 13th century manor house was transformed in the 14th century into a quarry for quarrying cut stone, and is now one of the well-known and recognized addresses in Vienna. Recently renovated, the estate is an atypical place, which offers a variety of warm and refined rooms to relax in. A game of Padel with friends, a refreshing moment in the pool, a friendly moment near the playground or to recharge your batteries in the wellness area, you will have understood it, the estate will satisfy everyone's desires. Professionals, holidaymakers and locals, we will be happy to welcome you.

What our customers say

"Nog child friendly"

We arrived when it was raining. The information on the website showed us that the kids could use the indoor pool. But the receptonist told us that kids are not allowed in the indoor pool. So we had to entertain our kids in our very small, dirty and very hot appartment.
