The ancient castle of Tennessus: A bed & breakfast in medieval France

The estate and castle of Tennessus are located in Amailloux, a small town in the south of France not far from La Rochelle. The castle, which is  surrounded by a moat filled with water, has been converted into a bed & breakfast in the medieval part of Europe, where you can rent five oversized guestrooms formed in the central tower and large round towers guarding the entrance and drawbridge. You can choose between the room of the guards, one of the lord or knight, the room of the lady or the one in the guard tower. All are decorated as they used to be hundred of years ago  (in honor of the 600 years of the castle) and offer you a unique feeling of waking up in the past.

The property has a modern swimming pool and provides guests with picnic baskets for dining in the heady campaigns in the area or to enjoy a romantic meal in your room. To spend a night in the castle you need from 135 to 185 euro for 2 or 4 people. The room in the Watchtower, which is a little smaller but costs only 105 euro seems to have a character and an atmosphere more pronounced than the other rooms.

It might be a good destination for a long weekend in December, with the fireplaces and candles illuminating the falling snow.
