About the neighbourhood
Fongrave is a small traditional village which is home to church with a beautiful carved alter.The Chateau has direct access to the River which, as well as being picturesque is ideal area for fishing ( fishing licenses can be obtained from the village shop). During the months of July and August evening markets are held by the river, and food, wine and live entertainment is available.The village is on a cycle route and there are a number of bicycles at the Chateau for guests to use including 2 Tandems.
Getting around
It's best to hire a car as the supermarket is a short drive away. We have nearby villages that are easily walked to or use one of our numerous bikes.
