La Metairie is located approximately 45 minutes from the Eurotunnel Terminal in Calais, a few minutes off the A26 and as such made an excellent stopover location en route home from Snowboarding in the Alps - it came with positive recommendations from family who had stayed previously. Arriving at 1500hrs, check in was efficient and our rooms easily located. On opening the bedroom door we were treated to the awesome spectacle of the original distillery's bricked, vaulted ceilings - the tiled floors and terracotta tiled bathroom all added to the sympathetically rustic, yet luxurious charm. We were well looked after by the barman in the Chateau when taking a bottle of wine - he rallied around to prepare us a table and chairs with cushions so that we could enjoy the afternoon sunshine in the beautifully maintained gardens; perfectly spoken English and a good sense of humour even with our terrible attempts at speaking French.
There are three restaurants on site and breakfast is taken in the main reception building although we departed too early to sample breakfast, we did enjoy an excellent meal in La Distillerie in the evening.
I would have given a full 5 out of 5 except for one slight issue - in the evening of our stay, an artist was performing in the function suite which we hadn't been previously made aware of and this went on until the very early hours of the morning - soundproofing of the rooms was reasonable but surprisingly given that it was March, the room became uncomfortably hot in the night - the choice was too be too hot to sleep or to be kept awake by the music if we opened the windows. Once the concert had ended, we had a great night's sleep in the very comfortable bed and we will most certainly stay again.
