Have you ever dreamed of staying in a Knights Templar castle? The Commanderie de la Romagne may be the closest thing to it. If you’re wondering what a “commanderie” is, it’s a small landed estate that once was under the control of a commander of an order of knights.
Most striking as you approach is the Saint-Jean door, which used to be where the original drawbridge was. This historic door gives the commanderie its monument historique status.
The three guest rooms are located in the building of the Saint-Jean door. The ground floor room features a delightful hand-painted ceiling and a stone-vaulted bathroom that once was the castle prison. This guest room also enjoys a private terrace that opens onto the park.
One of the suites features two rooms with wood-beamed ceilings and views of the park and river. The bathroom is found off the hallway that connects the two rooms.
The third suite is over the former drawbridge and has a fully equipped kitchen--a great amenity for families. Views are of the castle tower, river, and countryside.
Breakfast is served in the great room, and you’ll usually find fruits, cereals, yogurts, eggs, and fresh-baked bread on offer.
