This charming rural property has received lots of good reviews, the Livret d’Or & Belle Demeures awards and has been fully approved by the Tourist Board,  Trip Advisor and others.    It is a most interesting place with a wealth of history behind it. Restored in a simple old-world style, rustic, rural and with objects of interest and traditional furnishings.

We open the pool sometime around the end of April or early May and close it again usually mid-October – depends on the weather.

If you wish to hire linen and/or towels from us these are charged at 15 euros per person and include all sheets etc.,  a flannel, hand towel, bath towel and a pool towel. All beds will be made up. Cot(s) and high chair(s) also available from the housekeeper at a cost of 15 euros each.

We charge 80 Euros for the cleaner to come in on the day of your departure (optional), and this charge pre-supposes normal every day cleaning.  If you would like a cleaner to come in during the week it is 25 euros ph.

We take £380 (or 380 euros) against breakages/damages/costs/cleaning, payable to our holding account, in cleared funds in advance, and this will be returned to you within a day or two of departure. ( If some of your party are staying in the cottages their damages deposit may be treated along with the chateau one).

Extras  (sometimes included in price off-season – please ask)

We take up top 12 people in the Chateau with a supplement of 150 euros pp pw (or part thereof) for up to 2 or 3 extra people. The Chateau will sleep more but we find it creates too much wear and tear. The number of people must be clearly marked on your booking form.  For insurance and security reasons we cannot accept visitors during the day or overnight unless they are on the booking form.

We love pets and usually accept them, but some people are allergic to them, so we sometimes hesitate. Supplement payable 150 euros per pet per week (or part thereof) with a maximum of two pets (this may be negotiable). Do please enquire!

A contribution of 10 euros pp pw is payable towards gas CH during cold weather.

If you wish to hire bikes please let me know in good time.

Arrivals are after 3.00 and departures by 10.00

Sterling or Euros ? Prices given in euros are payable in cash on arrival. Everything in £ sterling is payable in advance unless you are already in Euros (e.g Ireland or other European guests, in which case we will let you know when you book).
