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 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 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.

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 with a maximum of two pets (This may be negotiable). Do please enquire!

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

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).

CHARITIES, FUND-RAISING AND EVENTS: The chateau is regularly used for fund-raising, usually by auctioning a week’s holiday between Sept-May.  Sums of up to £14 400,00 (the most to date) have been raised for charities. Do please get in touch if you’d like to discuss. We do accept some events, but never more than 15 people (day or night); these are usually murder-mystery weekends and family gatherings for special birthdays etc.. If you would prefer to give a voucher for a week/week-end prices start @ £800.  Contact Catherine [email protected]

Note 1: guests who are staying after winning a week at a charity function: a forfeit is payable to help towards utility costs.

Note 2. We always try to be as flexible as possible, but admin costs may be incurred with some booking changes, especially during peak weeks.
