“Peaceful and relaxing”
Reviewed September 24, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

I would be very happy to give a strong recommendation to anyone considering renting the chateau. The location was wonderfully quiet and peaceful, but close enough to the shops to be convenient. The bedrooms were all equally beautiful and the kitchen was very well equipped for cooking for large groups. In general, the house had excellent facilities and we had a lot of fun going on a 14-man bike ride and taking the boats up the river on Sunday to look at the rowers. The chateau would obviously be a lovely place for a family holiday, but as a group aged between 22 and 27 it was the perfect place for a lovely catch-up, endless games of cricket, and glasses of wine on the patio.

“Perfect large family holiday”
Reviewed September 23, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

It took some organisation to arrange our 2012 family holiday. It had been five years since our last outing, the family had grown and I was unsure initially who would want to commit so far in advance. This issue evaporated when I found the chateaux online and emailed to the potential group some pictures and the list of facilities the property had. Almost immediately we were booked up and looking forward to experiencing life in a real chateaux!. The property was very accessible for those that drove, flew and trained from the UK and further afield. Upon arrival the chateaux lived up to its beauty in the pictures and felt even larger with the communal areas very generous and quality of accommodation high. Being the family table tennis champion I was very pleased that the equipment lived up to expectation and even more so when our group in the family 'come dine with me' competition opted to use the very high quality and substantial BBQ and piella dish in the pool house area. Swimming in the sur lot was very pleasant and experiencing two local evening markets was excellent fun and pleasing on the pallet with the fine wine, snails and the most amazing steaks from the butcher. Utilising the array of mountain bikes included in the hire and stored onsite we were very well received in near by castle le Moran even though we cycled in some interesting attire (manikins and French maid outfits)! Normally one week is enough for me, especially within a large family group, however I can safely say the we needed another week to enjoy the amazing property, local surroundings and to continue experiencing the emmence fun we had. Thank you so much for making our stay truly special and having Kim on hand to answer any of our questions replenish gas for the cookers and give good tips on local activities. We hope to be back in the future!

I am very pleased to hear that you and your family had a lovely stay at the Chateau. I think that the locals must still be recovering after seeing such a large group of English people in French Maid outfits! We very much hope that you and the family will return again.

“Amazing Chateau, even bigger than in the pictures on the web site.”
Reviewed September 2, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

The Chateau was amazing. Everyone in the party had such a great time. Having the river there was such a bonus for the fishermen in the party, and having the boats there too, made it great for all to row up and down the river, and even swim in it! The bedrooms were huge, so much room for everyone. The outsdie entertainment area, was lovely for very long lunches through to very late evening meals. There was so much choice for everyone from the swimming pool, playing pool, table tennis, riding out on the many bikes that came with the property and also just chilling out with great friends. The chateau was so clean and you just couldn't want for anything. Even having a lovely meal cooked by their wonderful chef.
Would so recomend this to anyone.

“A sanctuary, a perfect place to unwind.”
Reviewed August 21, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Don't make the same mistake as us, ALL the shops are shut on Sunday from midday, make sure you buy enough supplies on Saturday to keep you going until Monday. The Thursday evening market in Fongrave was fantastic but get there at 6pm or 8pm, we got there at 7pm which was rush hour and there was no where to sit. When we go back next year we will definitely make use of the bakery in Fongrave and order our bread the day before for breakfast. The rowing boat and kayak were a bonus and swimming in the river was really refreshing.

We are really pleased you have booked again for next year. Part of the appeal of holidaying in France is the relaxed way of life and shops being closed on a Sunday is all part of the package. Don't forget you can always organise a supermarket shop to be done for you before you arrive then you will have even more time to relax and enjoy! The Fongrave evening market is amazing and your right, getting there early is a must. You can now start counting the days till you return next year.

stunning chateau - immaculately clean and beautifully furnished. bedrooms were delightful and the kitchen very well equipped and huge!! grounds were beautiful with plenty of trees for shade. pool area was great for evening BBQ's and again very well equipped.
The chateau itself provided plenty of entertainment for our family age range 5 to 80. The children had a ball playing on the bikes / table tennis/ pool/ swimming /canoe/ tree house...the list is endless.Thursday evening market and entertainment in Fongrave not to be missed - a great night out. Excellent cycling- lots of cycle paths along river and lovely quiet roads further afield.Pujols very pretty bastide town with great market on a Sunday.Angela and Steve the owners couldn't have been more helpful.

“A Magical Week!”
Reviewed July 12, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

Wow, what a wonderful week our extended family enjoyed at the Chateau. It is an amazing house with a garden to delight all, especially the young children. As this was a family get together it surpassed our expectations. From the moment we drove up the tree lined drive and entered the house it was a moment of amazement. We were blessed with a week of sun and blue skies which meant we ate outdoors for all meals and more! The pool is very suitable for family with young children and was enjoyed for many hours each day. I just loved the outdoor kitchen area beside the pool, seeking shelter from the sun for lunch somedays. It was so well equipped.
Bedrooms are beautifully furnished and I loved my bathroom in the turret! The character of the chateau has been maintained which adds to its beauty. Kitchen is so well equipped, in fact there is nothing wanting in this chateau. The owners have carefully thought of everything needed to make one's stay enjoyable. Being able to cycle to the local market close by was enjoyed by the older children and adults too!
It was sad to leave this beautiful, peaceful place. Must now be content with photos for memories. Great memories for all the family. Would love to return some day. A magical place. Thank you Angela.

“Fabulous fairy tale accommodation”
Reviewed June 18, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

To stay in this magical place will be a memory to last a life time.
Breakfast on the patio with fresh pastries from the local bake shop.
A day out visiting the best bastiille towns in France.
And back to the Chateau for a superb BBQ sipping excellent wine.
Excellent facilities here at the Chateau including fabulous bedrooms, bathrooms and a kitchen that Gordon Ramsey would be jealous of.
Endless activities to keep all ages entertained especially fishing, cycling, reading, sun-bathing, pool, table tennis and badminton and many many more.
This is a must for any wildlife enthusiast with The hoopoo bird and red squirrels sharing the delights of the gardens.
You can imagine that your are Romeo & Juliet, Rapunzel or even Sleeping Beauty in this magnificent building.
All ages will appreciate this holiday you must go if only to make all your friends green with envy.
