It is a very impressive residence, with magnificent spacious rooms full of traditional furniture and original features, whilst also having all the modern facilities required. The grounds are ideal with lots of places to sit and take in the stunning views. There is plenty of garden furniture, a very good BBQ and lots of play equipment for children. The owners are very friendly and could not have done more to make our stay enjoyable. When we arrived they gave us some home made and local produce and generously allowed us to eat their home grown salad.

We were worried about the low price but need not have been. On arrival the chateau was as described and the two of us had as promised exclusive use. The day time weather at the end of September was warm and sunny although the evenings were rather chilly. Gerald provided us with logs and the memories of the evenings around the log fire remain a happy memory.
