Looking out over the village of Bort l'Etang, Château de Codignat is a former seigneurial outlook tower situated in the heart of Auvergne. The 15th-century fortified castle towers above verdant natural surroundings just a few miles from the town of Clermont-Ferrand. Its towers, keeps, king's bedroom, silks, woodwork and heavy doors form the ideal backdrop for living a a life of former feudal luxury.
"Auvergne is famous for its five AOP cheeses and its wines. We offer a tasting of these two products that elegantly complement each other and let you discover subtle and unexpected harmonies.
Private tastings can also be arranged, along with home-made appetisers and canapés."

A country getaway
"Our château welcomes you in the heart of France with its pool surrounded by nature, its tennis court and its wooded park of century-old horse chestnut trees. We also organise visits to Vulcania Park where children and adults will enjoy the mysteries of volcanoes. You will discover breathtaking attractions as if you were at the heart of a volcanic eruption!"
"At the heart of Europe, the Auvergne is the land of châteaux. These historical monuments present throughout our region are part of our heritage. Often perched on an rocky outcrop, châteaux dominate the green valleys and offer a splendid view of the volcanoes. You will discover our château either for a romantic weekend, a wedding, a seminar or any other function."
