The Site

Built in 1876, it is the principal property of the Hamlet of Mazères, known locally as the 'The Château'. It was the principle employer of the village inhabitants prior to World War II. Originally the property had about 300 hectares and was mainly devoted to wine growing. Today the site is 1.5 hectares, situated just next to the medieval church Saint Jean Baptiste. It is rumoured that the house was built upon an old Priory dating back to the The Knights Templers Saint Jean de Jérusalem, with three mills under its supervision.

We stayed with Richard and Else, Emma, Marcus and Charlie (the dog) for two weeks in August 2015. There were seven of us, although two came for just a week, and we enjoyed it as much as any holiday we have ever been on. The house was in excellent condition, although seven of us stretched it a bit. The setting... more

Management response:

We can truly say that the Wookey family are wonderfully positive, friendly and enthusiastic. We would love to have them back again, but not least to see if could have a rematch at badminton and win back our self esteem! A fun family, hopefully we see you all again soon. more
