We enjoyed this property on the river. The youngsters made good use of the dingy and kayak and not a lot of use of the bicycles. The rooms are fine and the furnishings are delightful and in keeping with the property. Although the kitchen was well equiped the cooker was a bit of a nightmare and was rarely used. The restaurants and farmer's markets are good and value for money and all very friendly. The pool is a bit small and slippery underfoot and the heating doesn't seem to work all the time (not that the teenagers were bothered). The setting by the river is beautiful and the outside seating and eating areas are perfect for large families

"Beautifully relaxing top quality chateau. We were blown away bu the size of the rooms and the quality of the accommodation. The river was spectacular and we all enjoyed using the row boat and kayak provided. We had just the best holiday and wished we could have stayed for 2 weeks rather then one"
