We had a lovely week in Vermenton which we used as a stop off on the way to Cannes. The property is incredibly pretty sitting on the bank of a mill pond at the top of which is a lovely pool which we made good use of during our stay. The property is very well equipped and a comfortable relaxing space to be in. The property is a short walk away from the river and the canal, which were kayaking opportunities for our son who even managed to kayak in the mill pond. There is a good walk/cycle path along the canal to Accolay The Atac supermarket is a 15min walk away and supplied everything that you might need. We visited some pretty villages and towns including Chablis and Auxerre, During our visit we saw an abundance of wildlife, Kingfishers, water vole and also what I believed may have been an otter!
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
