We stayed at Castelwood as part of a drive around France. We made a last minute booking (the morning that we were due to arrive) but Maaike and Jan were super organised and sent over booking details almost instantly. We arrived quite late in the evening and were greeted by a very friendly Maaike who showed us to our cabin... More

I was out of season staying here. The property is set amongst the trees in the country near Biron. It is a "cross" between a camp site and a motel. Units are motel-like -- individual wooden chalets with plenty of bedroom space, living area, excellent equipped kitchen, and a nice patio to sit in the evenings. Heating available if needed....

Castelwood is a perfectly situated holiday spot. With 15 wooden houses there are always friends for the kids and it is still small enough to let the kids stroll around on their own. Maaike and Jan Willem are always there and are really kind, helpful and extremely knowledgable about the surroundings. There was so much to do and we loved... More

A truly relaxing and beautifully maintained retreat. Ideal for adults and children. Scrupulously clean and with every detail thought and taken care of. Excellent value and the most perfect holiday destination. If you're dissatisfied there's something wrong with you!

After a very long drive down from Calais, Maaike showed us to our wooden chalet, one of fifteen built in a quiet woodland setting. The chalet was impeccably clean and kitted out with everything you might need - even a dishwasher! Comfortable rooms and a great shower. No TV and no mobile phone reception, but really fast Wi-Fi at 2€... More

Our stay at Castelwood was comfortable & enjoyable and the welcome we got from owners Maaike, Ian & Pippa the dog, plus the help & information they provided during our week’s stay, ensured that we made the most of our time there. Castelwood is a well laid out complex of 15 log cabins in a secluded wood, a short stroll... More

CASTELWOOD, Biron, Monpazier Maaike and Ian’s welcome and hospitality at Castelwood is great. And the site of Castelwood is beautiful and offers a fantastic level of comfort in a tranquil wooded setting. Biron's imposing “chateau” dominates the local area and the village in June was a haven of peace. We stayed one week and Maaike really had thought of everything... More
