A splendid evening can be passed in the drawing room perhaps playing cards and or listening to music or even just reading a book. Having this communication with the family room enables the family to closely monitor their children whilst spending quality adult time together.
We often have requests by guests who have friends in the area or friends visiting the area at the same time to set up a nice drinks and canapé evening followed by a dinner in the formal dining room. Chef is always happy to oblige with these types of request and this affords the guest ample time with said party instead of having to nip off on a continuous basis to prepare and fetch and carry, the maid is pleased to be used in these circumstances.
The maid can also monitor the children for you and if a peep is heard inform you enabling you to relax and enjoy the security this service affords.
Upstairs there are six-eight bedrooms depending on the time of year (please see our booking/price page) which lead off the main corridor that run through the length of the chateau. The three double rooms are all en-suite whilst the three twin bedrooms share a large family bathroom and toilet, in total 6 bedrooms. However there is an additional double room with en-suite bathroom plus a further bedroom for rental if required at an additional price which in total would make 8 bedrooms. Each room has a unique colour theme and all are furnished with big pieces of antique French furniture.
All the bedrooms with en-suite facilities have either double or king size beds whilst the bedrooms that are not en-suite can either have double or single beds depending upon the request from the client.
Sleeping in the house is almost a new experience as the only sound you hear are country ones, there is a magical silence at night and many of the guests are quite surprised at the quality of sleep they attain whilst here. All the adult beds have orthopedic mattresses and all the children’s beds have roll out guards.
The staff at the chateau are very discreet and they work to your time schedule allowing you to relax and enjoy your holiday.
There are numerous cots at the house and these can be placed where and when required, and there is also a mobile play pen which can be used for afternoon naps or play time for a tiny tot. In fact the chateau has numerous facilities for tiny babies and tots if required, from high chairs, booster seats, prams, changing facilities, children’s cutlery/plastic plates, sterilizer, potties, toys, books, films, stair gates, baby alarms, pool accessories etc. (please specify what is needed when making your booking.
The adult bedrooms are all en-suite and there is an overflow family bathroom on the upstairs corridor. The bathrooms have been carefully renovated to retain as many of the original features as possible, including the roll top baths and generous sized basins, showers and toilets.
The stairs are gated, there are a series of night lights placed along the corridor which are dark sensitive and come on at night and where potties have been grown out of the family bathroom acts as the children’s w.c. bath-nights are a pleasure in the large roll-top bath where you can do three at a time comfortably.
The standard and general quality of the adults bedrooms is 5 star and the children’s bedrooms are like something out of Alice in wonderland with beautiful murals and completely stuffed full of toys and games.
In all the years we have never had even one complaint from the children who are often found asleep in the morning in full pirate or princess attire.
