What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
Charming family home
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
A great house for a large family gathering with lots of room. The decor is very traditional but very comfortable.
A fantastic pool which is fenced off for safety. The kitchen is well equipped though we did struggle initially with the newly installed stove. This would have been a problem except for the wonderful caretaker Jean-Marie Pape who used his initiative and adapted the system to enable it to be utilised. Jean-Marie and his wife Mireille were fantastic. They responded immediately to any requests for assistance and were both cheerful and helpful. Thank you to you both.
The only downside is the poor internet connection though the mobile phone signal is very good.
We highly recommend this property to anyone wishing to hold a similar event.
Authentic experience of country side mansion
Spacious, comfortable beds, many bathrooms, get a feel of how people used to live 150 years ago but with modern day comfort.
beautiful property in beautiful settings - brilliant family holiday
I didn't want to leave a review as it would attract more interest and I might not be able to have the 2 weeks we want for next summer, but this property was brilliant. we were between 9 and 15 depending of the days and we always had space . the park is very secure for the children, who enjoyed the pool, the bikes available and made dens in the garden, played boules, and were able to run around safely. the property is looked after by a caretaker who lives on site, in another house, and it is very reassuring to know they are there, even if we rarely saw them. the lady who welcomed us was very nice and helpful, available night and day if necessary. there is also a chateau within the park but it is about 100 m away and their swimming pool is facing the other way so both properties have their own privacy and we didn't hear the tenants of the chateau during our stay . St saviniens is only 5-8 min drive and offers market, super market, docteur, boulangerie etc and also children activities. we didn't visit that much the area as we were so comfortable in the house, but there are activities for all within the region around the property , for all tastes. definitely a great stay in a great house with a great landlord very responsive and flexible and the care takers as well as the lady meeting us (and doing the inventory when we leave) were just wonderful. we will definitively want to come back next year ! xx
Un WE entre ami(e)s qui s'est déroulé merveilleusement bien dans un endroit très charmant!
Nous avons passé 3 jours très sympathqiues à profiter de ce logis , et de son extérieur.
Merci à Mary pour l'accueil.
Superbe domaine pour un grand week end de rêve entre amis , et sous le soleil en février !
Sublime endroit chargé d’histoire, le parc est une merveille avec ses immenses platanes aux branches tortueuses. Majestueux !
Semaine de Noël 2018 magique par la grandeur et la commodité des lieux
Nous avons beaucoup apprécié notre séjour dans cette grande maison pleine d'objets à découvrir, tout au long des jours. Chacun avait son espace personnel, appréciable lorsque chaque membre de la famille a son propre rythme !!! Notre contact sur place a été d'une aide précieuse et très à notre écoute. A chaque petit problème elle a su trouver rapidement la solution. Merci encore à elle. Nous avons juste une petite critique à faire au niveau des verres, il serait bon de faire en sorte que chacun ait le même. Le grand parc nous a également permis de faire de belles promenades avec les chiens. Rien à ajouter si ce n'est que personnellement je pense que cette maison doit être encore plus magique l'été avec la piscine. Une expérience à vivre, sans aucun doute.
