The welcome that is awaiting you at the Château du Bec is triple: friendliness, respect and pleasure. You will be special.
A UNIQUE HERITAGE AND PROTECTED NATURE
The château and its grounds are open to our self-catering and bed and breakfast guests:
A visit to our animals ( you can help feed our donkey, our goats, our sheep, or our swans, geese, ducks and hens.) Or a visit to the dungeon and the postern gate ( one of the most beautiful in France according to the specialists). You can also take a walk around the ponds and in the woods. With a bit of luck you might see a squirrel, a deer, a coypu, a crane, a kingfish or a buzzard .We have quite a lot of wild life.
ORGANIC BREAKFASTS: You will be able to enjoy breakfasts prepared with organic or local produce, mainly from our garden and orchard.
We sincerely hope to participate in a sustainable development of natural resources and respect of the environment.The château’s heating system is aquathermal ( using water from the springs ) and the tap water comes from these same springs.
With all this in mind, we are now planning to produce part of our electricity from a sustainable source (turbines using the flow of the river). But we already have an agreement with EDF ( the French electricity company) to favour sustainable energy sourses by reducing the carbon impact and favouring a “clean” production of our electricity.
