The Domaine des Etangs Luxury Hotel and Restaurant in Charente is a unique retreat that harmonizes with nature and emphasizes the art of living. Covering 2,500 acres, the Domaine follows the natural cycle of seasons and offers guests the opportunity to connect with the essential elements of life while indulging their senses. The preservation of the forest, fields, and the largest herd of Limousin cattle in France exemplifies the Domaine’s commitment to sustainable farming practices. The spiral-shaped vegetable garden, which provides produce for the restaurant, flourishes year-round while the ponds offer a tranquil backdrop to the natural scenery, reflecting the motion of the sky by day and the stars at night. The Domaine offers more than just a place to stay; it provides a unique experience that connects guests with the natural world. Its rich history, dating back to the 13th century, offers a glimpse into the past and the connection to the land that has been maintained through the centuries. The numerous Farmhouse Cottages are a testament to the country life that once thrived here, powered by water and deeply connected to the earth. Today, the Domaine des Etangs is a luxurious five-star hotel, a place to escape, relax and enjoy the enchanting surroundings.
The Dyades restaurant at Domaine des Etangs takes inspiration from the changing seasons and creates a unique dining experience by varying the decor of each table. Although Dyades is the main gourmet restaurant, the Domaine provides a range of dining options that showcase the abundant produce of the Charente and Limousin regions. Guests can choose from a “home” service offered by the Farmhouse Cottages, alfresco dining by the ponds or in the forests, each offering a different ambiance. The food at Dyades evolves daily, not only following the seasonal cycle but also reflecting the changing nature of ingredients.
