A true castle. We spent wonderful holidays in a castle with wonderful park & nature pool

  • 5 of 5

Our two weeks in this castle with our children, friends and family were very relaxing and gave a lot of joy to everybody. What you get is the right side of a 1825 castle with authentic windows and floors and tasteful furniture. The castle is equipped with everything we needed and we made food most of the days. There is a huge park around the castle and a very nice pool that is fed continously with fresh water. The bathrooms are brand new and all bedrooms are large and unique. We can absolutely recommend this castle for a family stay or just to get this old fashioned castle feeling. The hosts live next door and are super helpful in finding anything you might need. 5/5 stars.

Excellent séjour !

  • 5 of 5

Nous sommes venus à huit, plus un chien, pour prendre des photos de famille en vue d'un mariage prochain. Jochen a été extrêmement accueillant. La propriété est dans un état impeccable et tout est prévu, le parc est très grand et très agréable, très bien maintenu. Je recommande chaudement le Château de la Raffe.

Magnifique

  • 5 of 5

La propriété est magnifique, un très grand parc bien aménagé et entretenu. La rivière et les petit canaux rendent se lieu vraiment agréable et enchanteur. La piscine atypique doit être très agréable en été. Il y a un jardin et une serre ou l'on peut aller chercher pour notre consommation les légumes et aromates qui y poussent. C'est un plus qui mérite d'être souligné. Il y a même des vélos à disposition. Rien ne manque. L'intérieur est tout aussi beau et agréable, très bien équipé. Enfin l'accueil a été sympathique, le propriétaire est disponible, discret et arrangeant. Malgré une météo très maussade, nous avons passé un très bon weekend dans ce lieu dans lequel nous reviendrons certainement avec plaisir.

Einfach nur unglaublich...

  • 5 of 5

Ich kann gar nicht in Worte fassen wie unfassbar schön unser Aufenthalt im Chateau de la Raffe war.

Wir waren mit 10 erwachsenen Personen 2 Nächte im Schloss und haben es allesamt sehr genossen. Wer hier nicht abschalten und entspannen kann, der kann es nirgendwo!

Bereits der Kontakt mit den Vermietern im Vorfeld war sehr gut und unkompliziert. Sie sprechen sowohl deutsch als auch französisch. Jede noch so nervige Frage wurde maximal innerhalb einiger Stunden beantwortet.

Auch Ankunfts- und Abreisezeiten konnten flexibel abgesprochen werden.

Die Anfahrt war dank der Wegbeschreibung einfach und das Chateau gut zu finden.

Es gab eine nette Begrüßung inklusive eines ganz tollen Willkommensgrußes.

Freundlichere und entgegenkommendere Vermieter haben wir bisher nicht kennengelernt (und wir sind sehr viel unterwegs)!

Zum Schloss an sich:

Vorweg ist zu sagen, dass die Bilder den Räumlichkeiten nicht annähernd gerecht werden. Die Atmosphäre, die dort herrscht, kann man gar nicht mit Fotos einfangen.

Es gibt 2 Kamine die das ganze Haus in gemütliche Wärme hüllen. Die Sofas sind so bequem, dass man, hat man sich einmal niedergelassen, nie wieder aufstehen möchte.

Die Küche ist sehr gut ausgestattet und es fehlt an nichts. Man kann problemlos mit 10 Personen dinieren, wie es sich in so einer Location gehört.

Das Bad ist ein Traum! Groß, geräumig, mit freistehender Wanne und Regendusche.

Die Schlafzimmer sind auf 2 Stockwerke verteilt und sind alle individuell eingerichtet.

Bettwäsche und Handtücher waren genügend vor Ort und die Matratzen waren weder zu hart noch zu weich.

Das Grundstück ist riesengroß und lädt zum spazieren ein (und im Sommer zum Spielen und Grillen).

Im Sommer kann man auch Räder ausleihen und die umliegenden Radwege abklappern.

Es gibt ausreichend Infomaterial und Broschüren vor Ort. Bspw.liegt Nancy und Verdun nicht weit entfernt.

Anregungen für Ausflüge und Unternehmungen bekommt man auch von den Vermietern.

Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sind mit dem Auto in max.10 Minuten erreichbar.

Das ganze Chateau ist liebevoll dekoriert und man fühlt sich sofort heimisch. Man merkt, dass sich die Eigentümer viel Mühe geben und es ihren Gästen so angenehm wie möglich machen möchten.

Uns hat es an nichts gefehlt und wir alle haben diese kleine Auszeit vom Alltag sehr genossen!

Unser nächster Aufenthalt ist bereits in Planung und wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder!!
