Robin Barrasford, Director of Wyndham Halcyon Retreat, comments: "To have been given the certificate for the 4th year running is a result of hard work by all the Château staff and the new restaurant team. It’s obviously fantastic news as it comes directly from guests, whether they have just come in for a meal or they have stayed with us for a few days. Each review counts and we are always trying to improve the experience."


It is with great pleasure that we announce the reopening of Château de la Cazine after this gloomy period that we have all just passed through.

Our reopening will take place in two stages, first of all we will reopen the Hotel from Tuesday, May 25, 2021 with catering only reserved for our Hotel customers. The restaurant will therefore be closed for lunches.

Then from June 9, it will be the Restaurant's turn to reopen its doors with room service as well as on the terrace. From the reopening and throughout the season we will keep in place the health protocols imposed by the government for the reception of our customers.

This year again we will be open 5 days a week, from Tuesday noon until Sunday after lunch.

Our Menus Formulas remain unchanged, we will once again offer our Daily Meal at 15 € during the week for lunch as well as the 3-course Cazine Menu at 35 €, the 4-course Epicure Menu at 49 € and an à la carte choice. We also offer a 3-course Vegan / Vegetarian formula at € 30.

We look forward to welcoming you again and to celebrate our resumption of activity we would like you to benefit from a 10% discount for any room reservation with a stay between May 25 and June 30, 2021.

JonG - 21st April 2019 Peaceful setting just out of La Souterraine, off the beaten track. The staff were very tentative and friendly and were very forgiving of my poor French pronunciation! The hotel has a warm welcoming atmosphere from the moment you enter. The food was extremely enjoyable.

Summerlane2018 - 12th September 2018 We lunched at the chateau on a beautiful day in August. Although it was very quiet we had a very nice meal ordering from the Chateau cazine 3 course menu, where there were two choices for each course. The restaurant staff were very friendly and although we were prepared to speak French their English was perfect. We were offered a choice of tables and elected to sit by the open door, which looked out ...

JonJo777, UK - 22nd May 2018 -  First time staying at this particular Chateau. From the moment we parked the car, we were saying “wow” as we carried our suitcases to the steps of the Chateau. Upon entering, we were greeted with a beautiful smile and the magic had begun. We really enjoyed our time and recharged the batteries. Must visit! Impeccable standards with a very high level of detail in the delivery of the service.

WildeOscar, France - 2nd May 2018 -  We ate an excellent lunch here yesterday. Great value and superb service. The Château de la Cazine is set in its own grounds and the view from the dining room is across well manicured lawns toward an attractive lake. We took our coffees on the terrace in the sun. The location is difficult to find but well worth seeking out. When we phoned and make the lunch booking, the staff were extremely ...

Lost for words - 22nd March 2018 Fantastic place to have your wedding. Planned and booked quite a while ahead and visited the venue a year prior . Glad to say that everything went perfectly and the place exceeded expectations across the board. For those who are not French, consider reading a cultural book (even just a pamphlet) or two. It is not the UK and it is not America. You may need to follow up. You may need to take some initiative. If ...
