The
Experience

A delightfully hospitable couple who love having people to stay. Their beautiful, mainly 17th-century, château has a gently fading grandeur and is surrounded by magnificent parkland. Perfect for families, it’s a children’s paradise with a large swimming pool, plenty of safe space in which to roam and explore and a fascinating pigeonniere. From the dramatic hall the superbly bannistered staircase sweeps you up to the salon gallery that runs majestically through the house and provides a huge space in which to relax – sit, read, dream of benevolent ghosts… The two double bedrooms burst with personality and are roomy and comfortable; children’s rooms interconnect. Madame’s hand-painted tiles adorn a shower, her laughter accompanies your breakfast (organic garden fruits and four sorts of jam); Monsieur tends his trees, aided by Hermes the dog – he’s a fount of local wisdom and is happy to chat about the history of the château too. A warm, wonderful, authentic place, and Michelin stars five miles away.

Reviews

What an absolutely wonderful place and perfect for our 2 night stop-over. With two Children in tow and a granny too, it was a perfectly relaxing, comfortable and hospitable experience. The rooms are well looked after and ooze character so if you are looking for something with French style then this is your place. The owners were so helpful with restauraunts recommendations and cooking up a fantastic breakfast. A great find and would recommend thoroughly.
