"We rented the chateau for our wedding and it was an unforgettable experience. It felt like we had fallen into a fairy tale. We were nervous about organising a wedding abroad, but Susy and her team were so helpful. She always got back to us quickly and was able to recommend suppliers, with nothing being too much trouble. We stayed there with our guests for a long weekend and rented the manior accommodation as well as the chateau. The decorative style of the manoir was slightly different from that of the chateau bedrooms but very charming, with vintage French furnishings. We loved that all the chateau rooms had their own individual character and the tower room is amazing. We will never forget waking up in the tower room to the sun rising over the lake, turning it a vibrant pink. The grand stairway is stunning, and we have some wonderful photographs of us standing on them with our guests, after our masked banquet. All our guests commented on the beauty of the accommodation and the extensive grounds. There is plenty to see and do in the local area, but most of us preferred walking around the lake, enjoying the stunning surroundings. You feel like you are in the middle of the countryside but there are supermarkets, restaurants and attractions within a short drive. Our guests either rented cars or brought their own, and there was plenty of onsite parking. Susy was really welcoming on our arrival and immediately made us feel at home. I cannot praise the staff enough, especially for the service during our wedding meal. The silver reception room is beautiful, like being in a period drama. We had two catered meals while we were at the venue and they were delicious. We had several vegan guests and they all said it was the best vegan food they had ever had at a wedding. The service wear is perfectly in keeping with the opulent surroundings. We were married in the chateau chapel and our photographer said it was one of the most beautiful venues she had photographed. We had a small and intimate wedding so there was plenty of space, but you can also choose to be married in the grounds if you have more guests. Some of my favourite wedding photos are of the two of us on the island and crossing the little bridge to it, with the chateau in the background. We could not have asked for a more stress free and magical experience. Thank you so much Susy for all you have done for us. We have even had guests asking when we can go back and do it all again!"

"There are no words to describe the beauty and charm of Chateau Abelia Du Lac. The chateau is breathtaking and the service we experienced before during and after our stay would rival only the finest hotels. My childhood dreams of living in a castle have been fulfilled and I was lucky enough to be a real life princess ( or at-least treated like one). My family and I visited the chateau in September for a total of 3 days for my wedding and we have more than enough beautiful memories and photos to last us lifetime. When we arrived at the chateau we were warmly greeted with french pastries and refreshments and given a complete tour of the grounds. The chateau is absolutely stunning and every single room has been decorated and restored to perfection. Each room has a fun theme, with the underlying detail being luxury!!! The sheets and towels were in spectacular condition and the beds were beyond comfortable. The inside of the chateau was marvelous, but it was the outside that really made your jaw drop. The lush trees that scattered the acres of parkland left us in awe, and the lake gave us chills it was so beautiful. I can’t imagine the upkeep on the chateau as it is massive but the staff makes it seem effortless and they always have a smile on their face. Speaking of the staff, I must begin my rant on how spectral the service is! Susy the owner is the most enchanting woman I have ever met. Planning a wedding in a foreign country can be very difficult, but Susy helped me every step of the way. She patiently answered every email with great detail and frequently checked in with me via phone and email to make sure I didn’t have any questions. At the chateau she seized to amaze me as she waltzed around the chateau sharing precious memories and assuring me that I would have the wedding of my dreams. Susy is not the only bright star in the group as Kitty and Doug were their to help with all of the last minute details and keep everyone in a chipper mood. I will miss their warm smiles, and never forget the moment when Doug provided a blessing for us within the chateaus chapel. Lastly, for the cherry on top I must praise the divine food. We chose to cater 3 of our meals at the chateau and each meal was comparable to one you would receive at a five start restaurant. My friends and family are still wildly raving about the delicious meals that we were served."

"We were a family of 14 from Denmark and Australia meeting for a week’s family reunion holiday and Chateau Gaillac more than met our expectations. We felt very spoilt. The chateau is absolutely beautiful and well kept. Built around 1860-70s it has so much character and the photos are a true representation of both the size of the rooms and the way they look. Beds were comfortable and there were 10 gorgeous large bedrooms most with 3 beds. 7 upstairs and 3 downstairs - and more than enough bathrooms and toilets. The lounge room, dining room and kitchen and upstairs foyer were also great for relaxation. Marie looked after us from the very beginning with a tour around the house. She was available to help with any issues. When she is away, there is a lady next door who comes to clean the pool and help with any issues or her son also came to fix the TV one day. Bed linen, plenty of bath towels and pool towels and toilet paper was all supplied to us for the week. There were even some spare swimmers in case needed. The pool was delightful and looks exactly like the photos. There were lots of pool toys for the kids and we left some too. The best part was the kitchen and the outdoor table. We had a young boy who couldn’t swim so it was important that we could see him in the pool while we dined. The kids were in the pool all night and we loved sitting at the outdoor table eating and enjoying a glass of wine watching the kids play in the pool. Marie even supplied some nice wine to start with. The house had 2 rooms with air conditioning the rest had fans. However, we closed the shutters during the hot days and opened them early in the morning and that kept the house cool. The location was great. However, we had such a good time at the chateau we only made it to Albi and Gaillac. We would recommend a trip to Albi to see the big red brick church - it is incredible. There are plenty of vineyards around too that offer daily wine tasting and we found some lovely local wines. The house has a number of bicycles of which 5 of them were in good condition and we went on a few tours through the vineyards. There is also a BBQ outdoor that we used a few times. All up we all felt the Chateau was perfect. We had such a lovely time and would strongly recommend this for any family or larger group gathering. There is plenty room for everyone to relax and enjoy."

"I stayed for a short while in March at the Chateau Abelia du Lac while I was photographing a client's wedding there. It is a gorgeous setting for photos, couldn't ask for better. At first the chateau is hidden as you drive past the woods towards the acreage. As you approach, the Chateau Abelia du Lac emerges from its surroundings, you see the beautiful pastel colour of the stone face. The property is expansive, close to or over 100 acres I was told, with its own lake; wonderful to stroll around but takes more than an hour to do so. As I entered the main door I was greeted by a beautiful twin stairway which was only a taste of how beautiful the rest of the chateau is. The private chapel is quite magnificent especially when the sunlight floods through the stain glass windows. Every room was elegant and the bed was very comfortable, you truly slept like a king! I chose the twin tower room facing the front of the chateau; every morning you feel something indescribably wonderful waking to the fresh air and warmth of the sun. While we resided at the chateau we were hosted by the owner herself, Susy. She is one of the most lovely ladies you will meet, very thoughtful and kind. She organized every detail you could ask for, if you needed something it was made available to you. She really made it a magnificent experience for the wedding couple and for myself included. While staying at the chateau she makes you feel as if it is truly your home as well. I can not describe fully the magnificence of the chateau, Susy, or the staff. However if you have stumbled upon my review of the Chateau Abelia du Lac, beyond words I recommend you stay here. You will not be disappointed."

"We chose Abelia Du Lac for a very special family reunion in July. There were 18 of us in all. Everyone, other than my husband and I, had no idea where they were going to- they thought they were going glamping for a week in Europe somewhere! My husband and I started organising the holiday several months before and from the moment I contacted Susy (the owner of the Chateau) I knew that we were going to be in good hands. Right form the outset Susy assured us that she was going to do all she could to help us make this the most special holiday and family occasion. And we were not disappointed. Everything we had asked for, Susy had managed to organise. The moment we all arrived, the whole family was absolutely flabbergasted. The chateau is just so beautiful and the lake and grounds are spectacular. We felt like we were going back in time into our own stunning magical world. All the bedrooms are beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The meals were delicious, all catered for everyone's different requirements, and the table settings were gorgeous making the atmosphere so wonderful. Whilst exploring the Loire Valley is a wonderful way to spend a week, we were also torn because just staying home at the Chateau and enjoying the bliss of the beautiful lake, the pool, and the silence away from the busy world was even more desirable. We would thoroughly recommend this chateau and suggest you book it for more than a week - it's just not enough! Thank you to Susy for all the effort you put into making our stay so special. We will never forget it."
