Lovely stay with my children who loved the stream. Bedding was expensive though. The property could also do with some updated electronics and WIFI.
Overall though it was a lovely place, very quiet and rural. I miss it already! My kids loved the little stream.
It's not every day that you get to stay in the grounds of a chateau, is it?
Okay, so the chateau today was rebuilt in the 1960s (since the original Louis XV creation was bombed a couple of weeks before the D-Day landings), but the presence of the building, the semi-moat and the huge park around it all add to the flavour of the place.
Breakfasting next to a running stream is a novelty - and you can do it from inside the gite, if you like. You'll probably see the local heron (who likes to take an apéro from the moat) and possibly a water vole in the stream complex around the property. The area has plenty to offer, too, from restaurants and theme parks to quaint villages and sandy beaches by the bucketful.
The owners were extremely helpful, and couldn't do enough for us - to the point of relaying an Internet cable! The gite itself is very cosy and comfortable but there are just two bedrooms - something to bear in mind if your children don't get on too well. It's certainly worth a stay - we'd use it again.
