Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The property is well-located in quiet countryside with convenient villages nearby for essentials. It is within range of a day out in Paris (or Euro Disney), as well as easy access into the Loire Valley. A few euros on a new set of crockery and glasses would be a welcome addition. April 2012.
  2. Lovely grounds, tennis courts swimming pool. Big rooms but bedrooms and bathrooms dated. Nice to have large fridge, freezer dishwasher tumble drier and washing machine. June 2010.
  3. It’s a beautiful building, with plenty of room and a fantastic pool. It does need a bit of TLC, particularly the bathrooms could do with a renovation. We also had an ant infestation in our en-suite bathroom, but apart from that everything else was perfect. June 2009.
  4. Fantastic rustic French chateau that was precisely what we were hoping for when we booked it as a group of couples. The grounds were stunning and well kept with an amazing lake/pond that you could take a boat out on as well as a nice pool. The caretaker was lovely and helpful at all times. Overall it was a memorable holiday to celebrate my wife’s birthday and we would definitely return. May 2009.
  5. It is an amazing place. The grounds are beautiful - wild flower meadows, thyme-covered lawns, kingfishers on the lake.... The property was great. For anyone who wants a true chateau experience it is perfect. Aug 2008.
  6. Excellent grounds, swimming pool, tennis and fishing lake. Local walking and cycling very good. June 2008.
