Château du Petit Chêne

Description

Château du Petit Chêne in Mazières-en-Gâtine remains a national treasured estate in France as a registered French historical monument. It sits amidst 160 unspoiled acres of wooded park land, lakes and offers a spectacular 18-hole golf course, restaurant and soon will open four-star hotel accommodations. Built by the Viault family in the 1600’s, the Chateau has had just three owners. The most recent owner planned to convert the Chateau to a boutique luxury hotel, but was forced to abandon the renovation.  Younan stepped in to expand the vision to renovate the property and the grounds and restore the estate to its original beauty and historical significance. Renovations to the main Chateau include carefully restoring interior and exterior finishes, adding new luxury guest suites and the renovation and launch of a redesigned restaurant, which currently serves golf course patrons.

The 18-hole golf course was designed and built by Robert Berthet, designer of 45 international golf courses. The Golf du Petit Chene, which is open to the public, is masterfully designed among the wooded landscape and numerous lakes and offers a 6-hole pitch and putt, driving range with 30 covered bays, pro shop, and dining and locker rooms. International golf course manager, Blue Green Saur Group, provides management through a 20-year lease of the golf course.
