3. Chateau de Codignat

Historically Château de Codignat was, in the 12th century, a look-out tower fortification for the Ravel Château. It lent itself, on the eastern side, to defend against the enemies coming from the Dore Valley. Following the decease of a turbulent history, parts of the castle were then expanded to become the residence of French noble families. The elegant rooms, each one different from the other, are beautifully furnished in the Haute Epoque style and provide every amenity, including whirlpool tubs. Here lies the château’s unique ability to combine the older, traditional feel with a subtle, sumptuous edge.
