The Lady's Suite

With its high wooden ceiling ,hand decorated walls and beautiful pannelled

wooden floor, the very lovely and totally unique Lady's Suite is situated up

a small spiral staircase on the second floor of the castle's West Tower.

A spectacular, hand carved oak balcony bearing the hand painted initials of

different "Seigneurs de Tennessus"', and reached by an internal oak

staircase,creates a second floor within the room,where there are two single

beds for two children



A huge double bed (which can also be made into two single beds) on the

lower level of the room provides comfortable accommodation for a couple.



A beautifully tiled bathroom with bath, basin and wc is situated inside the

soom directly beneath its meszzanine.

While providing families with spacious accommodation, the Lady's Suite

maintains in its conception and decoration, an essentially XVth Century
