Looking for a holiday that is FIVE star all the way then look no further than Château De Villars. Whilst marketed as gluten free this is a small boutique hotel for everyone that loves good food, French countryside and markets, fine wine and none of the hassle of large hotel chains. In this 5 bedroom château you get exceptional VIP service from Kevin and Bill, the company of the other like-minded guests and the freedom to make the Château yours for one week full board. The honesty bar means you can have a drink or make tea/coffee any time of the day or night. The lunches on the patio are exceptional and the 3 course dinners with an optional cheese course are sublime. The food was well beyond my expectations. Whilst I adhere to a GF diet my husband does not but he enjoyed freshly prepared food and did not even notice that it was gluten free as it tasted far better than many of the five star hotel chains worldwide we have stayed in the past. The château offers free bikes to borrow and roam the countryside on and if you are not there to have lunch they will pack you up a picnic to take on your bike or in a car. The pool is spacious and has sufficient in depth to get a good swim. There is a spa room for manicure or a massage. Château de Villars is a secret gem that deserves its high trip advisor rating. We have already booked for another week this summer and having found this haven from the real world we are loathed to go back to large hotel chains again for our holidays.
