Lalande is a beautiful chateau set amidst 60 acres of meadows and forest in George Sand's 'vallee noire', near the home she shared with Chopin.
'Chambre Perse' is perfect for families - a beautiful suite consisting of 2 bedrooms and a bathroom.
Lalande is a beautiful French chateau which has been inhabited since at least the 15th century. It is a happy, harmonious home in an incredibly peaceful environment.
Guests have access to all of the chateau's reception rooms. We have a large sitting room with a baby grand piano, a billiard room with a French billiards table (which unfortunately means that it has no pockets!), an entrance hall with armchairs round a large open fire, and a dining room.
Lalande has 60 acres of land which you are free to explore. It's mainly woodland, but we also have a vegetable garden and orchard.
Interaction with guests
I'm delighted to meet guests, and am also happy to cook for you or to recommend local restaurants. Alternatively, feel free to use our kitchen.
I'm a half English, half French classical singer who lives in London and the French countryside.
Music, beauty, food, laughter and conversation are my passions. So, along with my closest friend, I've spent the last decade chaotically renovating a 15th & 19th century chateau in France to be used as a meeting place for friends, musicians, writers, philosophers and gourmets.
We love hosting new people and learning about their interests whilst sharing our home with them.
