About Angela Hall

Steve and Angela bought the Chateau in 2004 after owning a luxury ski apartment in the Alps for a number of years beforehand. They love everything about France, the food, the wine, the area, not to mention the friendly people.They spend as much time in France as they can, outside of the holiday season. As well as sharing their French Chateau with the summer guests they also own and run an engineering company in Cheshire. When they are not at the Chateau they live in Cheshire with their dog Skip and 2 cats, Tilly and Molly.

Angela Hall purchased this chateau / country house in 2004

Why Angela Hall chose Fongrave

The Riverside location was the biggest draw for us. There is nothing to match the feeling you get when you sit outside this beautiful Chateau looking across the garden to the river.

There are plenty of Chateaux in France, but most of them are hidden away in remote places. Chateau Caillac stands within its own grounds therfore giving adequate privacy whilst being positioned close to a village thats within walking distance.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

A Chateau close to a village and with its own riverfront age is very rare. Here at Chateau Caillac, you have the benefit of privacy and yet close to all the amenities. The whole family will enjoy their stay.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We are an extended family of about 17 and have been sharing our holidays for many years. Aged from 16 to 90 we look for a place that caters for everyone's needs and this chateau certainly did! We loved it. The rooms are spacious, pretty with lovely views; the kitchen is extremely well equipped; the cosy sitting room with English tv was much appreciated during the Wimbledon finals and the British Grand Prix. The gardens, riverfront setting, pool and outside eating area are all delightful. Those of us who organised the cooking appreciated the outdoor barbecue area with dishwasher! The selection of bicycles was truly extensive - and all in excellent order. We feel this will be a very hard act to follow and would love to return.
