This accommodation is owned and managed by a couple who understand the needs of their guests and they go out of their way to try to accommodate your needs. Having said that we had as little or as much contact with them as we needed. In our case we were seeking a quiet week away from 'tourist land' where we would be comfortable and undisturbed. This we achieved.
The accommodation we stayed in while next to the house and joined to it by an arch (great for keeping the car cool and out of the sun) had it's own sheltered back garden and large covered eating area which is very private and not over looked or disrupted by noise from the main house.
We had a great week away from tourists and tasted 27 different Chablis (all premier cru). Went out to lunch a lot. You must have more than one lunch in Chablis to really feel you are beginning to understand the area and it's people.
If you are looking for what we were looking for you will have a great time. The only downside maybe the lack of air conditioning but if France had more air conditioning it would be overrun by more wimpy tourists.
This beautifully maintained property is less than two hours outside of Paris. We never wanted to leave the grounds, there is everything to keep the kids happy: miles to run, pool, tennis, and playhouse. We adults lazed all day by the pool while the children run happy and wild on the enclosed grounds. The owner gave us wonderful reccomendations for off the beaten path wine tastings. Make sure she shows you the mill across the stream where they make the best croissants and bread. The layout of the Chateau allows for several families to enjoy a vacation together, while maintaining peaceful , private moments. Best family vacation ever.
