We looked forward to a very special family holiday and Les Arcis did not disappoint in any way. Set in a lovely part of France, near a supermarket, villages and surrounded by countryside, the chateau is absolutely beautiful, typically French and very tastefully decorated. Whilst it is a stately home, with elegant furniture, it is also very comfortable and it had everything our family needed. From the time we arrived we enjoyed the pool and relaxed in the sun on the poolside seating. For cooler seating we used the veranda of the sheltered Summer house and a perfect eating and barbecue area next to the Atelier, which had a fridge for cold drinks. The Atelier also had every game imaginable and a TV area with a variety of DVDs and comfy seating. There is an electronic game/TV room in the chateau too, with seating for the whole family to have a 'cinema' evening. Outside, we enjoyed walking by the river, tennis, boules and table tennis and the children made full use of the slide and swing. The garden is beautifully maintained and it was enjoyable to spend time relaxing in the peaceful orchard. We enjoyed cooking in the very well equipped kitchen and had leisurely meals together around large family tables, in beautiful surroundings. Richard and Christine were friendly, very helpful and on-hand if we needed anything and we enjoyed meeting them. All in all, we had a wonderful experience which we would love to repeat in the future and we thoroughly recommend Les Arcis for a family holiday. Jane and family
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.
