La Châtaigneraie was built in 1920 as the Hôtel Commerce and stands on the square of Saint-Georges-La-Pouge in the Limousin Region of France. It has undergone many transformations including the addition of a large dance hall/function room and was latterly a Bar and Bistro with Chambres d’hôtes.
We bought our new home in April 2014 – in need of much love and attention. We have created a 100 seat concert hall which was opened in August by the Girls Choir of Dunstable Priory, who had been staying with us for a week, (the hall doubled as dormitory) and sang to a packed audience of around 150. We shall never know exactly how many came as they filled not only the hall but also the Bar (which remains intact) and spilled out onto the square. A community carol concert concluded last year’s events.
This year there will be a concert of Opera highlights during Festival weekend as well as the ‘Summer Song’ weeks plus our Wedding reception!!
We are open to bookings for rehearsals, concerts, conferences (there is a stage) courses etc. We have flexible accommodation on site and plenty more is available locally.
Do get in touch if you would like to know more.
