A magnificent chåteau in a very pretty village in the Indre Valley, it was completely renovated in 2003 and opened as a luxury hotel. There has been a château on the site since around 1000AD. During the 18th century it belonged to the Marquis de La Fayette and then during the latter part of the 19th century and very early 20th by Edouard Müller, a Parisian banker. All the rooms bear the name of a famous historical figure, some of whom lived in Reignac, including Gilbert Motier de Lafayette and his wife Adrienne de Noailles, Pauline Bonaparte (Princess Borghèse), Emmanuel de Saint Priest, (Comte de Saint Priest), Marie Duplessis (a Parisian courtesan) and Sir Howard Carter (the British Egyptologist and discoverer of Tutankhamen’s tomb). The château also boasts a spacious park laid out in the French style.
