Chateau de la Tour du Puits is a beautiful small chateau in the back of a village, surrounded by gardens that look like a putting green. Chateau de la Tour du Puits was built in the 19th century on the sight of a former 12th century fortress of which only a tower is left. Chateau de la Tour du Puits has only seven rooms located in two floors, the second and third, because the first floor is the home of the owner who happens to be a helicopter pilot and offers some interesting helicopter excursions as well as commuting to the nearby city of Chambery if desired. In Chateau de la Tour du Puits the rooms are not just different one from another like in most chateaux, they are also all very well appointed with the latest comfort and beautifully decorated in different classic styles, each one with a relaxing view of the surrounding green prairies. Another peculiarity of the chateau is the fact that the four rooms on the second floor are all nonsmoking, smoking is only allowed in the three rooms on the third floor, which means that smokers have one more flight of stairs to climb up the tower... There is also a wonderful restaurant on the ground floor. All together, Chateau de la Tour du Puits in this far away location, can provide a truly relaxing vacation accompanied by some fine French gourmet dinning.
The Tour du Puits castle is a secret garden nestling at the foot of the French Alps on the historical road from Lyon to Turin and on the way to the winter sports resorts. Well away from the agitation of today's lifestyle, it was rebuilt in the 18th century around the old Green Tower and is set in the heart of seven hectares of wooded grounds, orchards, gardens and flowers in a haven of silence and art of living.
