Some Guests Comments:

• August 2011 Dr. Harry Hill and family:

The end of a wonderful fortnight in a fantastic place. The character of the house is obvious and the facilities are excellent – it’s a pleasure to be able to use such lovely furniture… The surroundings are beautiful and full of wildlife. Deer appear daily and wild boar can be seen…..

• June 16th-29th 2012 Helen & Olly Gavin

No one can deny that this is a fabulous place and a perfect venue to share birthday celebrations with some very special friends. Thank you for finding us a great caterer who provided delicious food and so discreet we hardly knew they were there! All talked of coming back, be it with family or friends, so we hope to see you again!

• June 2nd-9th 2012 Kelly Family

The Chateau is a beautiful home full of original features and lovely furniture – it took our breath away. 1 week was not enough…

• July 28th-August 11th 2012 Clerkin-Philips family

An amazing Chateau, exceeding our expectations. Children enjoyed all the wild life; the adults enjoyed the wines, sunshine and pool…

A wonderful and amazing Chateau in wonderful settings. Only one week but wish it was longer. The wines are excellent.

• December 26th2012-January 4th 2013 Marina & Sam

No words to describe this magnificent Chateau and its surroundings. We stayed for 2 amazing weeks where life just stopped… Nothing would have been the same without one wonderful person who always made us feel welcome.

• July 26th-August 2nd 2014

What a place. We have loved our stay and will definitely be back. Never to be forgotten.

This house is like a bottle of Bordeaux; to be shared with friends; sad to leave.

• I wonder how many of your properties can boast chandeliers in their communal rooms! It’s a large 200 yr old manor house with nine double bedrooms, two and a half kitchens, and more than enough room to swing a very large cat. It has been beautifully modernized where it matters (en suite showers or baths of considerable sophistication, for example), without damaging its character and history. The bedrooms are decorated with great style, and that of the Marquise is particularly opulent. Outside, there is a mix of woods and vineyards to explore, and plenty of wildlife for those who want it. Two or three deer can be seen on an almost daily basis, though they are very shy. The orchard, has mature fruit trees and their produce is there for the picking. We had beautiful figs to feast on while we were there. Within 10 minutes there is a selection of village churches, all with some interesting detail and history. In short, this is a magnificent house which would suit an extended family, as we were, or a group of friends holidaying together.
