We enjoyed a wonderful week in the chateau with a group of friends and family and it really was lovely.
The house is grand and full of character with big high ceilings and amazing decorative pieces in every room. There is a great big dining room to enjoy big dinners together and a large but cozy salon for spending time together. The house is very old so with that you get unique character but also it really isn’t modern inside. But really the absolute best thing about the property is the garden, terrace and the pool area. The gardens are beautifully kept and full of gorgeous flowers, and overlook the lush forested valley. The pool area is just what you want for lazy days in the summer.
The set up of the rooms worked for a mixed group: one family room with 4 beds and a cot then a mix of doubles and a single bedroom.
The owners live in the same property and there is another building that is rented out so you are not completely private but as the stone house is so big and with thick walls we never felt like we weren’t secluded.
I would highly recommend to stay here with a big group.
We had a marvellous two-week family holiday here. There was loads of space for running around, sardines, star watching and eating out on the terrace. New things to discover and trees to sit under and read. We enjoyed the tennis, pool, pétanque and table-tennis.
The chateau is a piece of history with lovely fin de siecle decorations and furniture in the public rooms and a '30s flavor in the bedrooms and bathrooms. Very much loved; as if the family just moved out for a short while (which perhaps they did - we didn't ask). But modern equipment in the kitchen, and with loads of crockery and cutlery.
The house and garden are very quiet and private, the pool is enclosed by a wire fence, and it was good to know that the small children could be left to wander around for a while without immediate danger.
The family arrived in groups using car, train and 'plane, and all enjoyed the experience immensely.
