We never got our deposit back even though we left the Chateau in perfect condition after our glorious wedding. It's so sad how the owner dealt with his customers, especially those who had their weddings there. Don't know how he can live with himself after ruining so many people's special day. We are planning on taking the owner to court... More

Sham. The owner of this property has so far refused to repay 3 deposits on weddings to our knowledge. We were 'charged' for non-existent breakages and refused receipts/proof of damage. We challenged all of this - we have the email exchanges however Nigel hid behind the fact he is in France and we are in the UK. He also says... More

I booked The Lodge at Chateau Blavou last October and paid in full three weeks before travelling in August of this year I received a rather curt email from the Owner to say that my accommodation for myself and 7 friends had been cancelled . He did offer a FULL refund and extra discounts and ideas of other properties none... More

I would like to have started this review on a positive note. However, given my experience of this property, this has not proved to be possible. My daughter got married at the chateau in June this year and I hired the Gite, which is located in the grounds, for a week. We had a family day out the day after... More

We hired the chateau for our wedding. The owner was very happy to accept your money, but like he did to the the previous reviewer will not return our 2000 euro deposit. He did not reply to any emails for over a month until legal action was threatened and then he made up various reasons for not returning the deposit.... More

Last year in July 2013, my husband and I spent a week at Chateau Blavou. We had had a hectic 2 weeks in London and long-hour days in Paris for a week, soaking up all that was to see. It was such a joy to drive through the classic wrought iron gates at the end of a long driveway and... More

The chateau only has bedrooms for 10 adults even though advertized as sleeps 15. The extra people are expected to sleep on sofa beds in other people's bedrooms! Not very clean - we had to wash everything in the kitchen before we could cook. Not well maintained - many appliances not working. Because we complained to the owner he withheld... More

We just spent three days at Chateau Blavou and loved every second of our visit. Nigel was very accommodating, he helped us with dinner reservations and made a very special arrangement so I could visit his friend's Percheron farm. Breakfast was delicious! Fresh fruit, breads, cheeses and juice. Nigel went out of his way to make sure we enjoyed our... More

We spent one night at Chateau Blavou to break our journey back to the UK. We wished we could have stayed for longer. Nigel, the owner was a lovely man who was very freindly and welcoming to us. When we arrived he bought us tea & biscuits to our room which was perfect and our daughter particularly loved the chocolates... More

My husband and I were looking for a quick getaway weekend trip from Paris and stumbled upon Blavou - and how lucky we were. The chateau is located in picturesque French countryside and easily accessible by car from Paris (1h45 minutes). We checked into our room and it was huge and had a great king-sized bed with a bathroom in... More
