A truly beautiful Chateau ideal for the whole family
Posted by on 23/09/2013
This proved to be an inspired choice as a venue for our family holiday this year. 27 of us, varying in age from 4 - 80, descended on Amanda's tranquil oasis in July and any pre-holiday nerves, as to whether or not the property would live up to the marketing, were immediately calmed because the chateau is truly beautiful. The property has been so well thought out on every level with great interior design, great landscaping, all the facilities you will need including all the toys to keep the younger members amused as well as having enough space for every guest, even in a group our size, to have their own space. The owner could not have been more helpful or charming. We would love to go back and re-live what was an exceptional holiday.
Wonderful holiday in fantastic chateau

We have just returned from a wonderful group holiday at the Chateau. This property is truly exceptional and Amanda, the owner, is very welcoming. There were plenty of facilities to keep our group of adults, children and teens thoroughly entertained. We were particularly impressed with the attention to detail which had gone in to making the chateau feel like a home from home. I would wholeheartedly recommend this chateau for a holiday.
