“A beautiful homely place to stay; rich in its own history, beautiful land and beyond relaxing.”

We stayed at the Château in April this year for a few days, our stay was amazing. The journey from the ferry was short and very straight forward with the directions from the owners. On arriving at our destination we were greeted by a tree lined avenue that took us to the tall entrance gates of the château. The gates opened and we were met with the gorgeous green lawns and the lake then the beautiful château itself.
Mandy, Karl and Sam welcomed us with a warm, friendly and homely manner; as did Ronnie, Reggie, Albert, Flo, Bee and Winnie! :)
The grounds are stunning, lush green lawns, a huge variety of tall trees and flowers, La Motte, 2 Victorian lakes - 1 with a duck island!, all safely contained within the perimeter wall making it perfect for visitors with children and/or dogs.
Sam has a wonderful and enthusiastic knowledge of the history and events that have taken place at the Chateau and is keen to share it with you. a truly interesting place.
During our stay we experienced a truly friendly, relaxing and fantastic service that the family our offering.
The gites are all completed to a high specification giving a beautiful mix of luxury and homely comforts.
We were given a tour of the grounds and they explained their plans to host weddings, a stunning and intimate wedding venue, the backdrop will make amazing photos!
We visited the local towns, a short drive to the market, the intermarche, amazing bread and cake shops and some very good local restaurants.
I would absolutely recommended the chateau for a safe, relaxing and beautiful holiday, for yourself, a couple, a family with children or dogs, or both! Great value for money to top it all off.
Thank you Mandy, Karl and Sam for welcoming us, for a relaxing and fun stay. Keep up the good work and we look forward to staying again......a lot.

Having spent 4 days in this gorgeous location, I was consumed by the peace and tranquillity as well as the beauty of the area. It is close enough to the local village and shops should you need them, but set far enough away as to feel as though you can relax and appreciate the beauty that nature provides every day. The hosts are a very friendly, dog loving couple and nothing is too much trouble to help you fall in love with this majestic property and all that it has to offer. I can't wait to go back!

“A chance to relax in historic & peaceful surroundings.”
Reviewed 24 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Once you enter through the grand cast iron gates, we got a feeling immediately of peace and began to relax straight away. You may get greeted by 6 very friendly pups, we did, who will happily show you around the gardens & you will see ducks on the lake with their very own impressive house. We were completely wowed by the history of the land and the chateau.

The gite is incredible, beautifully (well done to the history of the building) decorated and spacious. Hunting round the local area we found the local village, only a short drive away, where we got supplies of fresh bread, cooked meats and vegetables fresh from the market. There is a huge supermarket also close buy for anything else you may need.

The great thing about this place as well, especially if your like me & can't speak very much French. The owners are fluent English speaking people. The owners son was very helpful in directing us to interesting places that were around as well as filling us in on the amazing history of the chateau.

I would highly recommend this place to anyone. I am happily going to book another trip as I know I didn't see all we wanted to and we enjoyed our stay so much.
