Upon arrival at the Chateau, guests will be welcomed by full butler service, setting the standard the shoot is renowned for. The estate offers teams of guns and their guest’s luxurious accommodation in the main Chateau which boasts ten en-suite rooms, two dining rooms and an engaging library for teams to enjoy put simply, it provides the ideal venue for guests to be entertained.
Chateau de Voisins, now in its fourth generation of ownership, has been sculpted over the past 100 years with the intention to create an idyllic sporting estate for family, friends, and now clients to enjoy. A vision which has certainly been achieved. Throughout its colourful history, this estate has seen many changes, including two world wars, but continues to be a haven of beauty and luxury, offering impressive surroundings to astonish and delight the guests that are fortunate enough to shoot and stay here.
The estate benefits from mature woodland with undulating topography, allowing the keeper to show a good quality of game for the full line of guns to enjoy. Some of the estate’s most renowned drives sees guns stood in the Chateau’s gardens amongst beautifully maintained box hedges and rose beds, with the Chateau providing a picturesque backdrop as the game, including duck, are driven towards you. To end the sporting day, while guns enjoy tea and cake, the shot game is honoured by being laid out in front of the Chateau in an impressive arrangement and display of respect.
In just shy of one century, the Chateau has enjoyed entertaining some of society’s most highly regarded, including aristocrats from across the globe, politicians, and royalty.
However, it is not only shooting that guests can enjoy during their trip. Teams often combine the shooting with other activities such as golf, horse riding or professionally guided tours of other local Chateaux.
