The chateu De Fretay was not what it was advertised to be. The heated covered swimming pool was not covered & not heated and the water level was not high enough to reach the filters. The pool was freezing & dirty enough to be unusable. The chateu itself has a very poor standard of accomodation. The carpets were filthy and stained. The plumbing leaked, most of the toilets were loose. The showers had an unhealthy growth of mold. The roof leaked on the first night we were there through onto my daughters be (with her in it). The horses were badly kept and allowed to roam anywhere, including around the pool and allowed to eat out of the dumpster. We had a taod living in the downstairs fireplace next to the damp and muddy foot stool. All furniture in the living room was stained and smelled terrible. THe pictures were falling off the wall - some held together by staples. The kitchen cupboards wouldn't stay closed. The dishwasher and washing machine worked intermittently. The tiles around the kitchen were loose, there was trash stuffed down the back of the sink from which maggots hatched on evening when I was doing the washing up. None of the doors to the property locked - some of them didn't even close. The owners solution was to nail all but one shut. The owner is fully aware of the problems, but doesn't do anything about them as long as he still receives the money. Don't go!
