Our family of 12 (6 adults and 6 children) stayed for 2 weeks in this incredible castle, & it was one of the most memorable experiences of our lives. It really is like something out of a Disney movie. The surroundings were stunning and totally private. We were sent a lot of information about the area and the property, so we knew exactly what to expect. It was easy to get to via several ferries & airports. We were warmly met on our arrival with champagne, lovely nibbles, & --as promised-- the dining table was already laid for the size of our group. There was also a super welcome basket with coffees, teas, snacks, etc. The kids were uncontrollably excited & couldn't decide what to do first: Wii in the cinema, swimming pool, trampoline, or kayaking on the lake (which is fenced, by the way, to protect smaller children). We encouraged them to be outside in the gorgeous weather, but the cinema was great in the evenings with many DVDs. The little ones loved the playroom & made good use of the games, toys and costumes. Lots of little princess photos! The property is very well-maintained & clean. The rooms were much larger than they appear in the photos & we loved the space. All of the public rooms open into each other, so we always felt 'together'. The bed linen was beautiful & the mattresses were comfortable. Everyone loved having their own bathrooms! The kitchen was our favorite space (2 sinks & 2 cooking zones meant that we could all get creative) & we also had 3 dining options outside with the BBQs: the lake, the rear sunset garden & the pool. The area was incredible. Laval, about 15 min away, is a beautiful city with loads to do and great shopping. The village of Meslay next to the chateau had a large supermarket, bakeries, bars, & a great market. Medieval St. Suzanne and the Roman town of Jublains are both very close. The kids loved the wacky Robert Tatin Museum & the zoo. 5 min from the castle was 'The Bois', a wooded park with zip-lines, pony rides, boating, etc. We also saw Mont St. Michel, Normandy beaches & some Loire castles. My parents popped into Paris for the day as it's not far by train. Looking at all of the amazing photos that we took, we are already planning our next visit & dreaming of 'our' castle in France.
