You must stay here if you're in the area. Actually travel to this hotel from far away, it's that good. The rooms, the welcome, the gardens, the dinner everything was fantastic. Swimming pool was a little nippy but a minor point. Would be a good place to bring kids too as there's a massive garden with trampoline, badminton, ping pong,... More

Everything about this place is just wonderful. The Chateau itself is really stunning with lots of history. The gardens are huge and there are lots of places to sit outside, plus the pool is really lovely if you have good weather. We stayed in Chambre du Parc with views over the garden, a lovely comfortable bed and en-suite bathroom upstairs... More

This is a very beautiful and peaceful place to stay in Alencon, France. We enjoyed the grounds and the lovely French dinners and breakfasts. The owners are quite friendly and accommodating. We really loved this place.

We have just spent the last two weeks in France staying in Paris and travelling into Normandy and the Loire valley. The Chateaux de Saint Peterne is undoubtedly the highlight of our journey... The 500 year-old Chateaux has been in the de Valbray family since inception and has been beautifully restored. It is situated outside Alencon and comprises a main... More

I am absolutely sure this is THE place to get married to have a long and happy marriage! This was the most wonderful place to stay with amazing... More

Arriving in the sunshine to this fabulous family home, we were greeted by the owners. I asked if they had a ground floor room and they upgraded us to the beautiful Orangerie. AMAZING!!! It was huge, the wallpaper was some old scenery from a theatre in Barcelona,I believe. The Bathroom had steps to lead you to the bath. A cold... More
