We had a great time at Chateau LeGrande in July. We were celebrating our recent retirement from teaching careers with some much needed rest and relaxation. We spent time walking on the beach, exploring the nearby towns, attended a free festival at the farmers market where I won an "outdoor" prize of delicious local cheese, and drove to Bellingrath Gardens in Theodore, Al where I went to an interesting class about growing herbs and how to use them. I look forward to going back to Bellingrath Gardens again to see the azaleas in bloom. We ate delicious food at wonderful local restaurants, many that have built back after Katrenia. We loved staying at Chateau LeGrande! It was very clean and the staff was wonderful. We purchased two weeks and are sooo excited about returning to this resort. We've stayed in more modern condos but this was perfect for us. Some folks like to stay in places as nice or nicer than their homes but we are content as long as our surrondings are clean and comfortable. We love this less crowded vacation spot and we are very happy relaxing at Chateau LeGrande!!!
