Château de Castel Novel
Varetz, Limousin
















Sophie & Nicolas Soulié

« Savour cuisine inspired by Corrèze and Périgord in a residence much loved by Colette »

Description of the establishment

“Simply luxury!” This is the motto of the hotel restaurant perched on a rocky promontory in the heart of Limousin. The ancient small castle built in the 13th and 15th centuries has been embellished over the course of time with planted terraces and an Orangerie boasting sweeping views of the 12-hectare park. Before its conversion into an exceptional hotel with pool, the estate played host to the finest minds of the time from the circle of the author Henri de Jouvenel, a talented journalist and his wife, the novelist Colette. The six room categories invite you to benefit from unforgettable, timeless moments in an exceptional setting with impeccable service.

Overall an excellent hotel with a particularly helpful lady on Reception who also telephone us when we double booked by mistake. I would not recommend the hotel however as absolutely no effort is made to provide a no smoking area anywhere outside to bring or on the Terrace to eat breakfast or dine. Our first evening meal was spoil but people smoking all round us and when I asked on the second evening I was told it was difficult to provide no smoking tables. Ff you sit looking out over the fantastic views having a drink smoke comes from all around as all the tables have ashtrays. It is not acceptable when you are paying this sort of money

This is an expensive but very special hotel. We particularly appreciated being in the turret room right at the top of the building. The views are amazing. The public spaces and grounds are very pleasant and enjoyable.
