Wonderful warm welcome made us feel at home straight away, great grounds and unique original room , clean , warm and made for excellent night’s sleep. Great breakfast and our host made this a totally memorable experience in this beautiful château!
Lovely Château with exceptional hosts. We were made to feel part of the family. The bedroom was huge with a seating area and an extra large, very comfortable bed. The evening meals were delicious with a blend of French and Swedish cuisine. Just what we imagined a chateau should be like with beautiful antique furniture.
Kind hosts who were very friendly and we very much enjoyed our discussions with them. We also had nice dinner cooked at the house and we enjoyed that this was not as heavy as when eating out at restaurants all the time! Our room was large and comfortable - we had a lovely sunny sitting area that looked over the garden. The house in it's entirety is full of lots very beautiful antique furniture that is in keeping with the architecture and the colours used throughout are very French (and nice!).
The Château is quite run down, and is really a big manor house - it certainly would have been lovely in its day. For some guests it will not meet the expectations of the photos online or the idea of a "chateau". Perhaps because the grounds are not as well kept as many other accommodations we stayed in. We didn't end up feeling we wanted to linger around the pool or in the garden - we rathered go out during the day. The rooms were nice but bathrooms not great - I think they were a 1960s addition made by past owners and are not very in keeping or comfortable (climbing into shower over bath was tricky). The location itself is very quiet (- not that this is the fault of the house or owners!) and we found the area too quiet for us (most nearby towns almost deserted). We enjoyed our dinner with the hosts but didn't know the price before we had them and thought that 28€ per head was too high compared to restaurants in France.
It was like staying with (fortunate) friends in an old-fashioned French country house, with all the space and elegant décor that that implies. Yet comfortable and informal, and we loved the garden swimming pool on a hot August evening. Also the peace of the location, deep in the French countryside. Our Swedish hosts were interesting conversationalists, just like the kind of friends we wish we had more of: intelligent, well-informed and unpretentious. We were lucky they had time to chat with us, of course. We hope to return.
A minor point: I found the washbasin in the bathroom rather small and difficult for shaving. But who needs to shave on holiday anyway?
Almost like staying in a friend’s home. Lilian and Henrik were so welcoming and helpful. Cooking us a delicious dinner and joining us for lovely conversation.
