About the Owner

The beach! We love the beach, barely 4 kms. We chose this area for its excellent climate, offering warm, lazy spring & autumn days & long hot summers. There is something for every age group in the general area, the beaches being a particular attraction. We bought this huge old place in 1995 & restored it ourselves.Old properties, dating to the 17th century. Staff available if there is anything you need.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We were fascinated by this property and spent a lot of time exploring and studying its history. There is a lot of information provided and our worries about going when the waether may not be good were soon eased by brilliant sunshine and so much to do and see. The owner's were not there but we were greated by very helpful staff and we had a great time. My only poor comment might be that the dammages deposit was returned the next day and we'd have preferred to have it back in cash on the same day.Otherwise it was all very good.

Perfect Family Holiday Venue

  • 5 of 5

We needed somewhere to meet up with family prior to the Christmas chaos and this was the perfect setting. Typical rural France with something for everyone to do on site. Separate shower to bath would have been nice but that is most definitely just a personal thing, We did have one bed that wasn't made up on arrival but the staff were obliging and sorted this swiftly for us. We would happily recommend this property to others.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much indeed for this lovely review. I am sorry about the bed - don't know what happened there - but I am pleased to hear the staff sorted it quickly.

brilliant

  • 5 of 5

We were five families and rented the magnificent chateau and two of the delightful cottages. The main house was brilliant for a group like ours and we had a ball. Full ch meant we were warm and comfy, interesting old property, log fires, breezy walks on the beach, brilliant.

Location

From the Owner

We have always been interested in history, and this property is loaded with it. Nazis occupied the Chateau during WWII. The original property was much bigger and was burnt to the ground during the French Revolution. We have kept as much as we possibly can of the old features and have worked hard at retaining the traditional rural character of the place. You will not find stream-lined bathrooms and kitchens here, though there is of course everything you need for a wonderful holiday - sunshine included, all being well !
