Beautiful setting

4 of 5
Comfortable home with stunning scenery. Very quiet rural area. Bedrooms on separate floors ( useful to know if have very young children). Shower is excellent and great to have a washing machine. Some instructions for the combination type oven would be really useful.

Wonderful place to stay!

5 of 5
We have had a wonderful holiday at Chateau Valvert. 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.
