    4/5 Good

      So much space!

      We were 8 adults and 7 children, with bedrooms configured as: 1st floor, 4 doubles with en suite inc wc and a twin with separate wc. 2nd floor: 2 twins and a triple. 2 bathrooms inc wc. On the ground floor was a separate wc, kitchen, dining room (seats 16 well), 2 living rooms (1 inc pool table) and a study (which we didn’t use). Outside we had space that was plentiful and a good sized pool. Including a good sized flat area we used for cricket. Things to note: 1. There is a EUR2000 deposit. It was returned but do plan for it. 2. It is a 5 minute drive to a local supermarket 3. There is a table tennis table with old, but useable, bats in the basement. 4. There is a BBQ and outside dining for 16. But we couldn’t find outside lighting. 5. There is enough crockery for 20 but the knives are not sharp. 6. There is a washing machine and dishwasher. 7. There are 8 sun loungers. 8. There is 1 TV. We only used it for the odd kids movie of an evening as there is plenty else to do. With a group that large we struggled to stagger showers/baths as the water pressure, particularly to the top floor, was poor. Probably not surprising given the age and size of the property but we didn’t plan for it on day 1 and got caught out. We got more organised after that. We drank bottled water after day 1 too as one of our group got ill. We don’t know if that was over cautious or not but we did. We would return as for a group holiday the property had everything we wanted.

      5/5 Excellent

        Beautiful chateau, far beyond expectations

        We visited the chateau in June for a weekend away with friends and family. It is suffice to say we were blown away with how beautiful the chateau and it’s grounds are. Our host Arnaud was particularly kind and really went above and beyond to make sure our stay was enjoyable. The house itself was clean, amenities were ample and every surface, every fireplace and every table was topped with a beautiful antique statue or vase. The rooms varied in quality but were all comfortable and clean. There were 15 of us in total and ample space to accommodate all of us comfortably. The pool and grounds are wonderful, we heard cuckoo birds hooting and my friend saw an especially rare orchid growing wild in the fields of the house. I can’t reccomend it enough, we all fell in love and didn’t want to leave after the weekend was done!

          A wonderful shabby chic chateau in lovely grounds

          We had a great stay at the Chateau that was marred by one thing only. The pool was green when we arrived and despite constant contact with Arnaud, it was even more green and murky when we left and new guests were due to arrive. What is most disappointing is that since we left we have tried to speak to Arnaud about it and he has ignored every email. This is a real shame because my daughter left her diary there and I was happy to pay for them to send it back but they have ignored me completely. Other than that it is a great place for a group holiday. It is a little shabby but full of character and very comfortable. Great grounds for the kids to play in and so on. The only other thing to note is that on the first floor there are 4 bedrooms with only one toilet to share between them. There are lots of en suite "bathrooms" on this floor but they only have basins and baths. There is a 5th bedroom on that floor with an en suite with toilet but the rest share one toilet. If you don't plan to use the pool I think you will have a great time but if you are going in summer and want to cool off I would ask for some assurance from Arnaud that the problem has been fixed as it looked to us like it was a long term situation as the sides and bottom were dirty and despite changing the filter and using the automatic pool cleaner every day it did not improve.

          5/5 Excellent

            Family reunion

            Delightful chateau in lovely grounds ,near several pretty towns and villages, Saint Savinien 5 mins down the road. Swimming pool good size and near house. Plenty of seating for big party. Good to have bikes to wander round local villages, also good walks. Housekeeper,Dominique and caretaker Jean Marie very pleasant and helpful. A great place for a family get together.

              Everything you expect it to be - and more!

              We stayed here during my son's wedding in Rochefort. Perfect for a large family 'get together'. Beautiful surroundings and reasonably close to Saintes which has everything you will need. There's a good SuperU just over a mile away so you are not isolated. The accommodation is flexible with some fantastic bedrooms on the first floor; the second floor is a bit on the dark side but the kids loved it. Massive dining table and just about every thing you could ever want in the kitchen. The living areas are cosy and relaxed - the pool table was almost almost always in use. We were there during atrocious weather so didn't get chance to use the swimming pool unfortunately. To give a balanced view, it may be a bit dated for some tastes but for us this was a plus in that it made us feel more relaxed (if everything was pristine we would have been worrying about damaging something). The owner, Charles Arnaud, was very helpful. I did a lot of research before booking as I couldn't understand why we were getting so much for such a relatively little price - to be honest, couldn't really fault it for what we paid.
