From the moment my family and I walked into this fairytale of a home we felt we'd stepped onto a movie set. From the curving wooden staircase; the pastel wallpaper; the authentic crockery; the outdoor cushions; the attention to detail was astounding! It made our stay both romantic (even with teenagers!) and memorable. Despite the intense temperatures the house remained cool due to the high ceilings.
Christine was a generous host with cupboards full of condiments and always quick to respond if we had questions.
A thoroughly beautiful week!
We were a party of 12 plus a baby. As mostly adults we did fill it up as a few rooms had smallish beds for children so glad that we didn't have 21 adults as the description suggested. We were in one wing of the castle while the other owners lived in the other side but shared the grounds. We didn't meet the host of our part and were shown around by the cleaners who didn't speak very good English so I did rather miss being able to ask about the area or recommendations for visiting. The kitchen was a good size and on the few inclement mornings we sat at the three tables in the kitchen. It was well equipped so we could cater for ourselves. There was a beautiful dining room where we ate one night. There are two long tables but our 12 just fitted around one of them. The sitting room was a little small for our number with only 2 settees but the weather was beautiful so we spent most of the time outside in the wonderful garden which was equipped with a lovely heated pool, a tennis court, a volleyball net and swings. I hadn't realised that we would be sharing the garden but as it was so vast it wasn't a problem. The bedrooms were of a good size but there was only one toilet on each of the upper floors although some of the rooms had showers. There was one ensuite bedroom. The stairs to the upper level were very steep but luckily my mother didn't eventually come with us but my 87 year old father found them tricky. The host had said that we could use a private lift but as he wasn't there and nor was my mother I didn't ask. The village had the basics of a supermarket and bread shop but otherwise was very tiny. This property is the major feature of the village and is actually part of the beautiful church so from the garden at the back it looks like a castle but from the road it looks like a house next to a church. We had a wonderful time and would happily go again.
