This recently restored, 16C chateau is well worth a visit. It was once owned by some of France's most historic families. It sits in its own grounds, and its turrets and tower look over an orchard, swimming pool and miles of green countryside.
  Inside it's just as grand, with original stonework, portrait-lined walls and chandeliers. Spiral staircases lead up to the large rooms which have dramatic four-poster or canopied beds, beautiful rugs and antique furniture. Thanks to the antiques - hand picked by the enthusiast owners - the rooms are all special, although some are more so: De Creato has a piano and the private Canopee is a luxurious, chandelier-lit tree house in a centuries-old Oak.
  Breakfast is served in an old, converted barn. After eating, guests can head for the sauna or Jacuzzi, or book themselves in for a massage. Despite its grand appearance and luxury fittings, de Labro is warm, down-to-earth and welcoming, thanks largely to the efforts of proprietors Jean and Nizou Rouquet. They're more than happy to pick guests up from the airport or train station. One guest remarked that his visit was like 'staying at the home of a particularly lucky friend.'
