Spectacular and charming tranquility

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of 19 musicians from the age of 11 to 18 with 9 adults. This was a beautiful place for us to stay, completely undisturbed. With enormous and beautifully tended gardens, a swimming pool, games room and plenty of space this was exactly what we had hoped for and more! Chateau La Douve is an historic building, so don't come here expecting air-conditioning - but the tranquility you get in return is completely priceless. There was more than enough consumer electronics in the form of flatscreen TVs and espresso machines to make up for the tranquility if that is what keeps you happy :) Add peacocks and exotic farm animals to the mix and you really have a fabulous getaway. The kitchen was small, but we managed perfectly with a little planning. The grill by the pool was fabulous. The balcony behind the castle has an incredibly scenic view of the pool and the village beyond. The owner, Rene was totally charming. We received lots of help from two locals who really helped to make this a memorable stay

Une semaine fort agréable au gîte Château de la Douve

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine de Noël fort agréable au gîte Château de la Douve.

La demeure est belle et impressionnante, les pièces sont de grande taille et suffisamment vastes, hormis la cuisine qui est trop petite par rapport à la taille du château et inadaptée par rapport au nombre d'occupants en groupe, faisant plus penser à une cuisine de maison familiale (seul bémol qui fait perdre une étoile), ce qui ne nous a pas empêché de bien en profiter.

Le gîte était très bien chauffé, nous n'avons pas eu froid.

Le parc est calme, la situation géographique est très bien avec les commerces à proximité et moins de 10 km pour les grandes surfaces.

Le propriétaire est très sympathique, à l'écoute et réactif par rapport à nos demandes et a toujours su les satisfaire.

Nous recommandons ce gîte.
