“Best family holiday ever”
Reviewed 17 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

My family has recently had the most marvellous time at the Chateau. There were 17 of us in total ages range from 3 to 70. There really is something for everyone and no need to venture out of the Chateau grounds as there are so many things provided. We found it was extremely well equipped, tastefully decorated and the beds were very comfortable. My grandchildren had a brilliant time swimming in the pool and the river, the dinghy and kayak were well used and the children enjoyed towing them with their parents sitting back and enjoying the relaxing tow! (even buoyancy aids are provided). Having a griddle and complete kitchen facilities within the pool area was fantastic and also well used. I loved the hanging greenery in this area which provided shade when needed. We played rounders, had pool competitions and played table tennis. A couple of our younger grandchildren enjoyed holding the lizards and fire bugs and spent a long time looking for more.

I have no hesitation in recommending the Chateau for a fantastic family. I know our time at the Chateau will be talked about for a long time to come. It was a truly memorable holiday. Thank you Angela and Steve.

“Oldies & youngsters, extended family, all together in this wonderful place - delightfully memorable for all.”
Reviewed 2 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

20 of us together in this wonderful Chateau - ages ranging from 83 - 5 .... we had a ball!
Cooking 'en famille' in the fantastic kitchen, enough space in the fridges for all the locally bought produce and the drinks fridge for the all important cocktail hour!
We sat around the huge kitchen table and shared stories and much laughter.
We lounged in the sun when it was hot, swam in the sparkly pool to cool down & adventured up & down the river in kayaks..... there is a bit of something for everyone here.
Favourite bits - the bamboo forest, the fairy tale staircase that lights up, the vast and yet intimate spaces, the sense of freedom cycling up the drive past the London Plane trees .......the escape......I think we all want to return.

“Perfect chateau experience!”
Reviewed 28 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

I had been looking forward to my chateau experience for six months and it did not disappoint - the chateau itself has been decorated and furnished to a very high and extremely tasteful standard with wonderful attention to detail and comfort.

Each bedroom is named after a French artist and I was very happy to stay in the Degas room with its pretty pink walls and ballerina prints and amazing views out over the large and well kept grounds.

The large kitchen was well equipped and there was no shortage of appropriate glassware for whatever our chosen tipple! We had chosen to have a caterer during our stay and she was brilliant; arriving each morning with fresh croissants, bread and fruit and returning to provide lunch and/or dinner as we had agreed prior to our stay. It was Angela, the owner, who had found the caterer on our behalf and I would highly recommend Anne Marie for whom no request was too much trouble, even catering for the member of our party who requires a gluten free diet.

The weather during our stay was hot and sunny which meant we were able to enjoy the large grounds and very welcome swimming pool. The pool area has its own, vine covered dining area and this is where we ate in the evenings. We also had the opportunity to kayak as a group along the river and there are plenty of bikes (single and tandem) which meant that the whole party could venture out together. We also enjoyed a walk out to Fongrave Farmers' market which takes place each Thursday evening during July and August in the village square, where you can buy local produce and eat and drink sat at trestle tables wherever there's a space and then dance to live music; it was a magical evening.

Arranging our chateau stay through Angela and Steve, the owners, was no problem; we felt that no enquiry was ever too much trouble and they were incredibly helpful.

“Fantastic place to spend time celebrating with friends”
Reviewed 9 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had an amazing time at Chateau Caillac celebrating a friends big birthday! The position is just perfect, so tranquil and relaxing. The owners have thought of absolutely everything and the room are beautifully decorated. We went to the night market on Thursday, I would definitely recommend that to anyone visiting during the summer.

“Perfect place to celebrate the family - great attention to detail guarenteed our memorable time.”
Reviewed 24 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We spent two blissful weeks with our family , grandchildren, aunts, special friends , mothers and fathers. All of us had a memorable and most pleasant time. There was something for everyone - soccer for the grandson, princess stairs for the granddaughters a beautiful pool complete with kitchen facilities where we could also eat outside in the very favourable weather some scrumptious local French food and at night the 'pool tournament '! We really did not have time for the many games and books available also.. Thought we could learn to ride a bike again ..many bikes to choose from, but ran out of time - there is so much to do and all the family was catered for - it could not have been better . And to top it off the most pleasant house keeper who changed the sheets and towels during our time there.. We really need to plan a return trip ! All agree..
