Last sept we joined my son and his wife plus two children.....one 3 months and a toddler of 2 and half for a week at Le Castle. They had already been there a week when we arrived. We stayed in the Cottages side by side. It was so nice for our grandson to be able to wander in to us in the mornings once they knew we were awake and yet have our own privacy.. Our cottage was gorgeous. The one our son had wasnt as nice or as big and a bit dark. But i suppose if youre dealing with converted buildings its the luck of the draw. We catered for ourselves mainly but went up for dinner twiice to the main house which was most enjoyable. We found the play tent just wonderful for the two and a half year old. Grandad had a marvellous time with him there, The main house is very child friendly so one can relax rather than waiting for the crash !
John was most oblieging in getting us anything we needed and very welcoming when we went up to the main house. Unfortunately the weather was not good for those two weeks. I imagine it would be magic having barbecues in the grounds if the sun shone.
We did lots of touring because of the weather....a bit too much driving, But at least its in a location where there is a lot ot be seen if the weather is bad.
