Why Ulises Balboa Ruiz chose Pouligny-Notre-Dame
The castle which is also known as “le Manoir” was built at the beginning of the Middle Ages. The Château keeps the charm of its origins but, as it has been renovated recently, it is very comfortable. The majestic living rooms with their visible beams, the magnificent staircases and the spacious bedrooms have a charming look about them. When you are in the castle, you will feel really comfortable and you will be given a welcome change of surroundings. Surrounded with moats and opening on a superb graveled and paved courtyard, this venue features seven luxury suites, a sauna, various lounges, a large lounge/dining room and a beautiful kitchen. The suites which have very different styles combine charm, calm and luxury. Variety and comfort are the main characteristics of the Château’s living rooms. In the great White Lounge which features a ceiling with magnificent visible beams, you can listen to the melodious music of a piano and admire the scenery of “le Berry” through big French windows which open out onto outdoor terraces.
