Chateau Sers is our favorite B&B in France!

  • 5 of 5

Once you enter through the impressive front gate you will be amazed by the romantic garden with beautiful old trees. Imagine enjoying your summer breakfast sitting in its shade, or having your winter aperitif next to the fireplace with the sound of crackling wood. The intimate rooms are in mint condition and during the recent refurbishment all original detailed were preserved. The surroundings are amazing - great for long walks. The two hosts are very hospitable and friendly, and will do anything to make your stay a pleasant and memorable one!

Exceptionnel réveillon - Exceptional new years' eve

  • 5 of 5

La vie de château, on en a rêvé, Nathalie et Blandine l'ont rendue possible. C'est tout d'abord un vrai château, avec ses tours, ses belles pièces, ses escaliers et ses recoins. C'est ensuite une demeure où il fait très bon se trouver car toutes les pièces sont des pièces à vivre. Tout est pensé pour qu'on se sente chez soi tout en menant la grande vie. Blandine et Nathalie se sont vraiment imaginées à notre place en se demandant : « Que pourrait-on faire pour que le séjour soit le plus agréable possible ? » Et, dans les détails, tout est parfait. Et, s'il manque peut-être un loquet ou un porte-serviette par ci, par là, l'on peut être sûr que ce sera réglé la prochaine fois. Car il ne peut qu'y avoir une prochaine fois.

The high life! We all dreamt of it and Nathalie and Blandine made it possible. First of all, it is a real castle, with its towers, beautiful rooms, staircases and corners. It is also a house where it is good to live and where every room is a good place to be. All was devised so you feel at home but with grandeur. Blandine and Nathalie really have put themselves in our shoes and asked “What can we do so their stay is as enjoyable as possible?” Everything is perfect, Maybe, sometimes a latch or a towel rack are missing, but rest assured that next time, for there has to be another time, everything will be sorted.

Un havre de paix

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passés 1 semaine en été 2010 au Château de Sers. Lieu idéal pour déconnecter et se reposer, avec nos fillettes qui couraient de partout dans l'immense jardin. Barbecue, visite, balade et repos assurés ! Quant à l'accueil, sympathique, chaleureux et convivial avec 2 sœurs qui piqueront votre curiosité. Merci encore pour tout.
