Rich in architectural heritage, the municipality of Saint Seurin de Prats shelters Château Destinée. Overlooking the Dordogne river this 18th century home has undergone numerous changes. Originally two equal-sized homes owed by the Punch family arranged either side of a courtyard, it then became the home of the Segur family, a significant landowner in the region. In 1905 Doctor Samuel Amanieux acquired the estate and engaged a Bordeaux architect to bring the two homes together, enclosing the central courtyard with a third building to create an elegant and light-filled reception area and orangerie.
In 2020 the château was renamed and changed ownership. Château Destinée is currently being refurbished to restore it to its noble beginnings so that guests can enjoy its stunning location.
Due to be available in 2021 the barn offers a great space for many types of events. It has already hosted tango demonstrations, art events and small concerts. It also makes a great after-dinner venue for dancing and live music, with its own distinct atmosphere. The mobile food van can be arranged for food and or drinks making the space self-contained.
A shady terrace in summer and sun and light-filled area in the cooler months the terrace is framed protectively by the château on three sides. Stargazing, river contemplating and entertaining are favourite activities in this space. Direct access to the orangerie and the large reception rooms enables seamless indoor and outdoor entertaining.
This expansive sunlit room is the place for breakfast. Guests can contemplate the day ahead as they enjoy this beautiful space.
Guests are spoilt for choice when they enter these two large rooms. With 4 m high ceilings and many different seats to select there is a space for everyone. Large sofas to cocktail tables and armchairs, come, sit and relax. If you plan an event at Château Destinée then this space provides a multitude of options for your guests to enjoy, giving them somewhere to escape the throng and relax before rejoining the party on the terrace or in the orangerie.
Château Destinée has a shared kitchen for guests to use and enjoy. Our resident chef can assist you if you wish or you can create and enjoy your own gourmet delights. For BnB guests this is a haven because it is a purely guest space (not the professional kitchen used by the chefs). Cooking classes are held here and can be arranged as part of your stay if booked in advance. Tea and coffee are available day and night.
Three hectares of grass and trees to enjoy. At the front of the château is a large water feature, a channel leading to the gazebo. Come and sit awhile to watch the dragonflies play, read a book and enjoy the park. To the right of the chateau is the large pool with shady lounge space and sunbeds to soak up the sun, while watching the river and life go by.
Destinée is a wonderful event location. With such a variety of spaces to entertain guests, you can create different atmospheres for the different stages of your event. The gazebo at the front of the house, the barn to the left, around the pool to the right, and the wonderful riverfront terrace. With a professional kitchen for your chef or ours, catering is a breeze.
Parties, weddings, exhibitions, yoga retreats, corporate team events and workshops, we can work with you no matter the occasion to create your special event: just get in touch.
