​​Our location, 7km east of the famous spa town of Jonzac, is in a tranquil village and offers a chance to relax in the beautiful and secure surroundings of a 15th Century castle. View our location on Google maps, you'll see the church and Château when you reach the D2/D249 junction. For directions direct to the Château and its pedestrian entrance (see photo 4 of 4) use What3Words .


With a heated swimming pool and 2 acres of parkland only 75 minutes from Bordeaux - it's heaven!

Whether you travel from Bordeaux or La Rochelle airports or drive from the ferry ports we're easily found!


Sensitively renovated since 2016 by owners, Nicky and Steve, Château de Meux is now available for sale due to health issues.


We had intended to make the property available for holiday rentals  and weddings / conferences (seating  up to 80) under cover in the Salle de Réception.

We launched in 2020, but owing to the unexpected constraints of the pandemic and subsequent health issues, we were obliged to change our plans. However, the visitors we have hosted, all gave us 5 star reviews.



Please CONTACT us with any enquiries or for further information.




August 2020 (via Airbnb) for Chesnel - 5 stars:

“We had a great week at the chateau. The welcome was exceptional. Nicky and Steve's hospitality and kindness are beyond reproach. The pool is very clean. The leisure facilities (ping-pong table, rackets, balls, etc.), the layout of the house, the kitchen, the bedrooms ... everything was beyond our expectations. We highly recommend the stay at Château de Meux. Ours is unforgettable. Yolande"




August 2020 (direct) for Apartments - 5 stars:

"Thank you for letting us stay here, I have had a wonderful time! I really don't want to leave because I have had so much fun. I have really enjoyed the pool, playing in the garden and having barbecues! I really want to come here next year."

From Luella (aged 8)

The Pool

Lazing poolside on the sun loungers with a good book or taking a refreshing dip, this is the ultimate in relaxation!

Conveniently situated close to the Château, the heated, salt water pool is generously sized at 14 x 5 metres.

For serious swimmers, the pool offers sufficient depth to make tumble turns at both ends across half the width. For the less confident the wide access steps provide shallower platforms.

Refreshing solar showers are provided at each end of the pool.

Child safety being of paramount importance to us, there is both a quality pool cover and perimeter fencing with a child safety gate.

Children's PLAY AREA

Providing hours of fun in the grounds, this area has proved immensely popular with our younger guests.

Comprising a split level play house with a choice of straight or helter-skelter slides, monkey-bars, a small climbing wall, and three swings (one is a baby swing).

The delightful children's Château café on the ground floor is a popular feature!


From the 'parterre' (the formal French gardens originating from the Renaissance period) to the more relaxed park-style areas, this is a garden to explore and enjoy.

Ideal for weddings and al-fresco events.


Giving much needed shade in the summer this covered activity / dining area is a great place to play, eat, chat or generally ’chill out’. 

We also have a childrens' toy library.

G/Floor Shower

extra activities

If you fancy something more strenuous than lazing in the hammock we have an outdoor table tennis table and a badminton / volleyball net.

There is a full sized village boules court at the back of the Mairie’s office which is just the other side of the wall at the bottom of our garden. A two minute walk will take you there.

For many other activities and places to visit in the area see our on-site manual.


Château de Meux is perfectly situated for exploring the Charente-Maritime and Poitou Charentes departments including Jonzac (7km), Cognac (32km), Saintes (46km), Angoulême (52km) , Saint-Émilion (75km), Jarnac (36km) and the Atlantic coast (61km).
