Château Constant, On the doorstep of Bessines sur Gartempe, a small path leads off the Saint James way to this 19C abode. Its unusual asymmetrical architecture inmmediately caugt the eye of Ana Marie and Gerard van Hooft who, after substantial renovations works, opened it to guests in 2005. The chambre d'or and chambre d'Aubergine sport a pleasantly contemporary and restful style, while Chambre Bleue will appeal to lovers of romanticism and French family charm. La chambre d'Papillon offers the delightful picture of antique furniture and an old fashioned -style bathroom, but will you discover the secret of its name? the remainder of the house is equally worthy of note from the plush classic elegance from the Salle Constant with its magnificent neo classic chimney , to the adjunct Petit Salon decorated with artifacts from the mayan culture , pieces recollected from our love of travel. Dine with us, in the salle Moliere , enjoy our warmth from our chimney there . Let us welcome you into our home, from our special Shakespeare Hall!

My brother, his wife, and I stayed at the Chateau Constant in May 2011. Ana Marie was very welcoming and personable. My room was large and clean, as was the adjoining bathroom. We particularly enjoyed our visit with Ana Marie at breakfast the next morning. She shared good food and good conversation with us and gave us a bit of insight into life in a French town. Would likely recommend this Bed and Breakfast! Pam, North Carolina, USA
