The Experience

Cats, dogs, horses, sheep and a fleet of farmyard fowl in 27 acres of countryside heaven. Delightful ex-solicitor Diana moved to France to indulge her love of horses. With its scattering of shuttered windows and classically pale façade, this fine château oozes 18th-century elegance. Large airy bedrooms, where genuine English wallpapers are artfully mixed with French antiques, huge mantelpiece mirrors and glass-panelled doors that flood spaces with light; ivory paintwork, marble fireplaces and snowy linen create an ordered calm. The salon and library have elaborate woodwork and the dining room, with its gleaming table and silver candlesticks, invites you to linger over breakfast, a feast of homemade pastries, jams and cooked dishes. Lounge in the library over books, games, WiFi; borrow a bike and pedal the grounds; swim in the heated pool or relax in the infra-red sauna among delicious aromatherapy oils.

I could give you a glowing report because this Chateau truly was outstanding but it is already very well written up in your book. I should add that the small town of Verneuil sur Avre is well worth visiting. Diana is a lovely person and outstanding hostess.

G, Lincolnshire

The Chateau is charming with beautiful antiques and so restful. Rooms are comfortable and have beautiful views of the grounds. Diana is wonderful, friendly and an excellent host cooking us lamb straight from her field! Perfect for a relaxing start and end to our holiday. We were made to feel like one of the family.
