Château de Bussolles is a beautiful, characteristic castle set on a 12 hectare estate in the French countryside, surrounded by rolling hills and forests. The castle offers lots of space, privacy, a private pool, many activities and gorgeous views.

The living area of the chateau is 600m2, distributed over 3 floors.

Facilities (inside):
- Fully equipped kitchen (6 burner stove, dishwasher, oven, microwave)
- Several seating areas
- Flat screen TV with satellite channels
- Billiards room
- Games room (table tennis, air hockey, football, darts corner and more) in the attic

- 70 m2 fenced private seasonal pool with parasols, sun loungers and shower
- hammocks
- trampoline with safety net
- fire pit
- football pitch
- table tennis
- several other game facilities including volleyball and badminton.

Guest access

The castle is rented as a whole, including the surrounding grounds and the private pool, offering you full privacy.

Interaction with guests

We live in our own separate house on the estate and are there 24/7 to help you with anything you need.

We can provide you with all the information about restaurants, things to do, etc.

Other things to note

Because of the somewhat remote location of the castle, a car is not a luxury. If required, one can be rented at the airport in Clermont-Ferrand, or in Vichy when arriving by train.

It was a pleasure to stay in the castle. It is a very nice place with a beautiful surrounding. Jolanda and Kees are very friendly and helpful hosts.

The castle was everything we hoped for: great atmosphere, many rooms to explore (including games room, snooker room, multiple living rooms, etc.), awesome landscape, .... It's the perfect place to relax or to party, depending on what you're looking for. We spent New Year's Eve there with a group of friends and we had the best time ever. Everyone felt very comfortable. The only thing that were not as good as we expected was the WIFI connection and occasional power cuts. But, let's be honest, that's the way castles are. It had no impact on the fun we had. The rooms were clean when we arrived, there was plenty of space for parking cars behind the house. It took us a day to find everything in the castle, since it's huge. Which is a great thing! We were a group of 9, but there would have been more than enough room for up to 5 more people. Altogether, it was a great – and a "real french" – experience. We'd come back anytime. All of us.

Many thanks for your positive and constructive feedback, Nicky and friends. We very much appreciate your time to write this. The occasional power cuts will be over in a month from now and we will also look into your WiFi-feedback. Thanks for having you, hope to see you again at Silvester 2017! Regards, Jolanda & Kees

Alors difficile car sentiment mitigé ... La château est superbe, isolé, dans un parc magnifique L'acceuil agréable, etl'équipement de la maison adaptée même si les pièces de vie "commune" sont assez petites par rapport aux nombres de couchages de la maison. D'autre part, les équpements extérieurs son assez rudimentares et la piscine non chauffée donc à savoir selon la saison. Notre mauvaise expérine a eu lieu après le départ. Pour quelques oublis minimes (lave vaisselle et draps de lits) les propriétaires ont ajouté 75 euros de ménage (!!) aux 290 déjà prévus.. soit près de 400 eurs de ménage... Et nous avons oublié une peluche renvoyée par la poste avec facture des 4 euros de timbres .. pas terrible non plus ...

Nous avons passé un séjour avec 10 adultes et 10 enfants. Il y a beaucoup d'espace et des salles de bain en quantité. La grande salle de jeux est parfaite pour les enfants. Le gite est bien équipé et est très propre. Il est situé dans un cadre vallonné, très joli.

Il n'y a qu'à passer le portail et rouler sur le chemin bordé d'arbres pour comprendre que l'on arrive dans un lieu hors du commun. Ce que confirme la vision du château. Puis Jacqueline fait la visite et là on comprend que 600m2 c'est grand. Jacqueline et Ivo, très organisés avant et pendant le séjour, vous permettent de passer un bon moment et sont toujours disponibles. Entre amis nous n'avons jamais senti le besoin de sortir du domaine. Les équipements du château, le barbecue et la vue suffisent à passer un super weekend.
