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.

We was very happy with our stay, we was looked after from start to finish, lovely apartment in a nice quiet location but not to far from the town centre, we was able to walk every day, swimming pool looked great unfortunately the weather wasn't during our stay, brilliant host and very well looked after throughout the whole stay, would defiantly stay again and would highly recommend.
