From Winchester, United Kingdom Sep 2010

Generally a very good stay, with the apartment clean, tidy and very much as described. An excellent level of Kitchen appliances. We very much enjoyed the peace and tranquility of the place.

There are a couple of items worth noting. You will have to have some French to speak to the caretaker as noted in previous reviews. There were no mugs at the property when we arrived and so for English guests this presents a problem with tea drinking.

The parasols were all inoperative around the pool. As we were the only ones there, there was shade but.....I can only guess we were at the end of the season.

I am being a little picky I know but the above takes off a couple of points and made our stay a very good one rather than an excellent one.

From Alexandria, United Kingdom May 2008

This is a fantatsic property and was perfect for our requirements. The restoration work is fantastic and the bathroom and bedrooms are superb! Combined with some beautiful local countryside and the views to the lake, it is an amazing place.

However there is some info for you to be aware of should you be considering this property
1) The housekeepers speaks no english whatsoever - not a major problem as you have little interaction with them unless something goes wrong but you will need more than basic french to understand most things - perhaps a health warning on the website might be useful.
2) The water in the chateau is not for drinking - fine for washing etc. again some pre-warning would have been useful rather than having to go back to the shops
3)St Andre, the local town is busy in July and August but don't expect too much to be happening any other time of year! Think we saw a total of 10 people across the week!

These things are minor irritations rather than major issues and didnt spoil what was a wonderful stay.

From Brielle

Beatiful chateau, excellent if you are looking for a quite holiday, but still enoy some luxur and comfort. The nearby village San Andre is nice, and the holiday town Castellane is great to go and have diner or so.
