‘The chateau was great.’
by: Mr Henriques
The Chateau was great, more like a home than a rental. We spent equal time enjoying the property as we did visiting the Loire Chateaux. The cook was fantastic, a wonderful personality and a great cook. She had the kids eating rabbit and escargot. The chateau's farmer was a kind soul who was enjoyable to speak to and good with the kids. All in all a great holiday.
