Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. This is the most tranquil place we have ever stayed in. Beautiful surroundings, a real chill out place. We came back totally refreshed. The caretaker was extremely helpful and welcoming. March 2012.
  2. Fantastic setting fabulous grounds, buildings and river Double beds were small,but as a small party we had a choice Chateau was Atmospheric Shabby Chic, would not suit everyone great for us. Loads of wildlife with a colony of glow worms on river bank, Musk Rat Barn Owl, Bats, Frogs, Toads, Snakes & Kingfisher no light pollution, a million stars at night Fishing in River for Carp that were elusive. Sept 2011.
  3. Beautiful grounds make this property. July 2010.
  4. The French feel and history of the property. June 2010.
  5. If you want a holiday that gives you a sense of history, this is it. It is a beautiful chateau and you can sense it has a wonderful past and that it must have been a lovely family home - except during world war two, when it was taken over by the Germans and left in a dreadful state! One morning there were deer in the grounds! Must go to Beauvron-en-Auge, a very pretty floral village on the Cider Route. Falaise is a lovely town with plenty to see and shops to visit. The kitchen was very well equipped, very comfortable stay. Aug 2009.
  6. Ideal for families as plenty of open space in gardens. Idyllic setting, secluded but easy to access everything you need. Unique property.. Location & size of property also historical aspect. Aug 2009.
  7. Absolutely delighted with the property - typically French in every respect. In some ways we felt that the brochure undersold it - certainly in terms of the open space and privacy which the accommodation afforded. Aug 2009.
  8. The photos on the website understate just how beautiful this property is. The property easily accommodated a group of 9 of us, some of whom were from Australia and mentioned it was the kind of place they had dreamed of staying but which they thought they never would. Highly recommended and excellent value for money. June 2009.
  9. Chateau de Vicques has more ambiance and character than any others we have been to. April 2008.
  10. To have the whole chateau to ourselves was really good. The surrounding land was wonderful, nature watching, bike riding and lots of games for the children to invent and play. To stay in such a beautiful property was something we didn’t expect. We were all very happy with the accommodation. July 2008.
  11. Stunning location and grounds make this property an excellent holiday spot, especially for the children. May 2008.
  12. A stunning, historic and vast chateau. Rustic describes the decor and amazing describes the atmosphere. Madam the key holder could not have been more helpful and made us feel really welcome. Wanted to book again during the school holidays this winter but already booked up! - not surprised really. Aug 2007.
