*Please note: while Clairac Castle is perfect for all guests, it is important to note that all bedrooms are located on high floors, which means there is some exercise involved when staying with us. Only three bedrooms offer ensuite bathrooms, which means guests should be prepared to share bathrooms.
**It is also important to note that although the owners of Clairac Castle have restored and maintained the property in very high standard, the age and nature of the property must be kept in mind when staying with us. This is not a modern, perfect property; it is a home full of charm and life, infused in past and present comforts.
