Overview

About the property

Castle, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 8)

Welcome to Clavy-Warby chateau, 15 km to the west of Charleville-Mézières, the administrative centre of the Ardennes. Part of a Chateau in the French Ardennes. It is surrounded by 1000m2 of grounds, a large garden and a grassy 750m2 courtyard. The habitable part is over 250m2. The foundations go back to the 12th century. The tower and the west wall (the only wall to have loopholes) are the oldest parts (13th and 14th century). The date 1654 is carved in the stone above the porch. Its an ideal spot in which to relax and explore the Ardennes department(Charleville-Mézières, the Meuse valley, the Rimbaud-Verlaine route, La Thierarche fortified churches, Sedan chateau, the Ardennes forest...) as well as Reims and its vineyards. There is a tennis court in the village, an 18-hole golf course 8 km away, and swimming in Lac des Vieilles Forges 16 km away. The accommodation boasts quality furnishings and decor: period furniture, engravings, paintings, collections. The park has been prettily landscaped and is well-maintained; it is completely enclosed by a hedge. A large flower garden extends round the outbuildings.

Amazing wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

Our week started with a great introduction, tour and briefing on the extremely well equipped and spacious chateau. It has all of the amenities one could ask for. Good high speed wifi, great fireplace, well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds. It was a treat having the boulangerie from the next town deliver fresh croissants and a baguette in the morning. (you hang out a bag with your order and money, they leave the goods and change). The grounds are large and well cared for. It is in a quiet area with the only sounds the rushing water of the nearby stream and the faint crowing of a rooster in the morning. Sheep graze in a nearby meadow. We enjoyed traveling into Charleville-Mezzieres for shopping and restaurants. No problems communicating, Verronique and her sister both speak excellent English. Lots of refrigerator space, a small one in the kitchen and a large fridge/freezer in the utility room (where we stored the champagne we bought at a small producer -Carole Noizette in Saint-Thierry). Well stocked with everything-- brochures, a large sewing kit, lots of wine & champagne glasses, etc. We made day trips to Reims, Waterloo, Bastogne, Sedan. We have stayed in a number of rentals both in France and the US and this one ranks among the best.

Het huis / kasteel is echt te gek! We waren met een gezelschap van 8 personen en we hebben ons heerlijk vermaakt! Overdag lekker de omgeving verkennen en 's avonds lekker met z'n allen rondom de open haard. Dit kasteel zullen wij zeer zeker opnieuw gaan boeken!
