"We drove along the wooded driveway and from across a sea of ox-eye daisies first saw the chateau. The pale towers under silky slate cones, at each end of the house, enhanced the fairytale picture-book quality of the scene. From the moment we saw it to the final farewell, this house gave everything promised in the literature, and more. The first-floor bedrooms are all beautifully decorated and appointed. Views over wild flower meadow and agricultural fields are stunning and birdsong rattled the windows each morning. Even after dark, cicadas and occasional nightingales provided a beautiful sound-scape. Bedrooms on the second floor (only two) do not have views because the windows are too high, but that doesn't stop the light, bird-song and fresh air. My husband and I stayed in the twin room with the undersea mural, and although this is the only room without an en suite, and one of only two without a view, we were absolutely fine. We used the bathroom off the fully-equipped gym, and were delighted to find a very clever massage shower and sauna cabinet there, although we only used it as a shower during our stay. Downstairs, a splendid kitchen, which was big enough for all 20 of us to enjoy more-or-less at once, was sensibly stocked with a selection of essentials including two bottles of Champagne, how kind! Good instructions were given for all appliances. The panelled dining room took my breath away. A glittering chandelier lit a wonderful portrait of a rosy-cheeked beauty and a terrific table at which we sat 20 people with ease (and by borrowing a few chairs from the playroom). The central hallway, sitting room and games room were excellently proportioned and decorated. I adored the silk wall covering and matching curtains. From the collection provided I chose two films, Man on Wire and Last king of Scotland, to watch on the large TV while curled up on an ample sofa surrounded by opulent comfort. Children would be delighted to find the board games, dressing-up clothes, PS2 and table games in the games room. As all rooms are separated from the next by two doors, children can probably be quite noisy before they disturb the quiet readers in the sitting-room next door. I am an out-door girl and this beautiful chÃ¢teau satisfied my tastes perfectly. The extensive grounds are well kept close to the house, but allowed to grow free further away. As a result the variety of species of flora and fauna is spectacular. An ancient Cedar tree in the wild-flower meadow casts a stately shade for water-colour artist or solitary bookworm. A ruin close to the house sprouts vegetation like a strawberry planter and a trampoline hides amongst the grasses behind the pool hedge. The pool is an extra treat and we used it well. Woodland alive with birds separates the chÃ¢teau from the road, and provide an excellent shady walk on a sunny day. I found a great 45 minute amble which took me all around the roads surrounding the ChÃ¢teau. This became a regular walk for me. I particularly liked the fact that this route gave me many and ever-changing views of the house. Our day trips were almost unnecessary, but we did venture away from paradise occasionally. The highlight of my week was a the underground quarry of Les Perrieres at Doue-la-Fontaine. As we explored a small part of the bind-blowingly extensive network of cathedral-like caves which have been hewn by men from as early as Roman times, I found myself gasping open-mouthed at the hugeness of it all. We also visited the troglodyte farms at Rochemenier which were exceptionally well organised as a social history exhibit. On another day we visited a wine collective at Saumur where they sold an unusual and delicious fizzy red wine - I bought a case to bring home. Shopping in Nantes is good fun and very good value. I bought some wonderful shoes for myself an my husband at a Moroccan leather-goods shop and we also had a delicious Franco/Cambodian lunch there. We had the benefit of a weak Euro (â‚¬1 = 80p) but even taking that into account prices were very good. I was also impressed with the amount of cheap and free parking. The local Intermarche at Villedieu has a good range of products (meat, cheese, wine, vegetables) fair prices and helpful service. Some of our party used the bicycles supplied by the chÃ¢teau to cycle the 2km to the supermarket for the morning bread-run. The bicycles deserve a special mention, as although I did not use them some of our party did, and they were very happy with the quality of the bikes. The surrounding countryside is perfect for cycling because it is relatively flat. All in all, this was an excellent holiday and I will definitely be organising another one if you will have us. I do not hesitate to recommend the ChÃ¢teau Cendrillon to anyone wishing to plan the perfect big family get-together or, like us, simply wanting to spend some time with good friends."

"We’ve visited Villa Franche 5 times now and stayed at Villa Soleia twice. This is a magical village and a spectacular villa. The villa is very well kept, well-furnished and equipped and well managed. You and your friends or family will have a spectacular trip staying here. Both times we’ve stayed we’ve had 12 people and there is plenty of room for all very comfortably. The 4 main house bedrooms are all ensuite and all have full on amazing sea views. They are all very private and comfortable. The nanny’s house beside the main house is a two story loft with a small living room and full bath on the main floor and the double bed up the spiral stairs. Open the windows and you have the same amazing views for about 90 degrees. Extremely private and provides your own living space to relax on your own but close enough to the main house to be part of everything. The separate apartment is located up a flight of stairs in the back part of the property. It is behind the house next door and is blocked from having the view, however, stepping 3 feet out of the apartment provides you about 70 degree sea view and 1 flight of stairs and 10 steps takes you to the main house terrace with full on view! This apartment is a 1 bedroom, 1 full bath, living room and full kitchen. I cannot say enough about the view and the swimming pool. Both are outstanding. Oh, and there is a great roof top where you can have drinks and enjoy the sunset. You will end up spending your afternoons lounging in the large pool and gazing at the Mediterranean and spending your evenings on the terrace overlooking the incredible village and sea view. If you choose to venture away from this great property, it is an easy thing to do. Villa Ouinade is a leisurely walk into the village where there are many great restaurants and shops. The walk home is an easy grade slightly up hill but be ready for the steps at the villa. It’s all worth it! The train station is super close and do not worry about the trains. They are quiet. You can get to anywhere along the coast for the day or a night out. There are 3 bus stops in Villa Ouinade and one is just about straight up from the villa. Extremely doable but not easy. Do not do it with luggage. So much to offer in this area and this is the place to stay!"

"as much as a Chateau this elegant can feel like home, anyway... since it's really something beyond any experience you've probably ever had. I honestly can't count the number of times I've been here with colleagues for work, replete with grand dinners in the dining room/ballroom... meetings in the Orangerie, the Library, and the salon... and lots of late nights around the pool table or playing music by the fire. So, sure, I'm not unbiased. But it's still safe to say, it is the perfect place for a writing retreat or any other relaxing but productive work event. We've also gone there as a family, with our two young children who love flying kites on the big grounds, taking walks past the stables, and skipping stones on the picturesque moat and leftover bread to the ducks. On at least three occasions, we took over the whole chateau for a New Year's Eve getaway with friends. The good-sized kitchen is exactly the right size for either big events or just a few families to manage, with lots of nice dishes, wine glasses, etc. to use, plus the double ovens and a microwave. The bedrooms are all decked out in appropriate French decor, comfortable beds, and modern en suite bathrooms that -- in case you're wondering -- have hearty showers and hot water that doesn't quit when someone turns on a sink somewhere else in the chateau. The wifi has good reach too, throughout most of the chateau. It's remote enough that you can relax... with relatively quiet roads, if you want to go for a walk or a run... but there's a small Normandy town literally around the corner, with a surprisingly good supply of culinary delights. I've heard it's not so far from the D-Day beaches too (an hour or so) but, honestly, we've never had the chance to get up there. Sometimes, it's just as good to sit out by the fire pit with wine and friends, under the Normandy stars... or go for an early walk, just as the sunlight hits the morning mist in the field out front. It's true, there are many other Chateaus, spread around France and even the region. And we've looked into staying in some of those too. But there's something about Chateau des Roses that makes it feel both elegant and warm at the same time... impressive as any grand estate, but also a lot like a grand home."

"What can I say ..14 friends and family gathered at the Chateau for a week in June, the weather was not brilliant but that did not dampen our fun. The Chateau itself is beautiful - the rooms are as described, the disabled facilities for my mother in a wheelchair are discrete (a lift directly into a special modified suite, and a large disabled toilet downstairs) and were so much better than we have ever found before. The kitchen was a great space for chat and creativity, big enough for all to get involved, the good instructions on how to work the huge oven came in very handy. The dining room is palatial and was the scene of many delicious meals with lots of that french red. The grounds were fun to explore with a particular challenging tree swing! We used the bikes, minimally, but we tried, I'm afraid I can't review the gym, only went up to it when we arrived, but it was very well equipped! The table tennis table provided many hours of fun, old skills refound. We did manage to sit by the pool one day which was very clean, with lots of sun beds. Also ate outside one night and used the big built in BBQ, a lovely night as we sat around the fire. As recommended by a previous reviewer, we had fresh bread and croissants from the local baker every morning and did all our shopping (including wine) at the local supermarket. They made the mad Brits/Australians feel so very welcome and even stayed open a little longer as we arrived one day as they were about to close - a tip to remember the french (quite rightly) shut up shop quite a lot! I would highly recommend this place and if would have no hesitation in returning.Just a great place ..."

"A handful of close friends and I spent the most enjoyable and relaxing week at Chateau de Cource, a thoroughly charming and idyllic 17th century chateau located in the gorgeous Normandy countryside. Prepare to be transported to another time entirely; it did not take us long to appreciate the chateau's unique qualities and also its idiosyncrasies. If you are looking for a property with 5* amenities across the board, specifically perfectly updated bathrooms and kitchens, this may not meet your expectations. However, the opportunity to experience an historic, centuries owned, "grand family home" is special indeed. All of the rooms are elegant and ooze character and the pool, gardens, tennis court and moat (complete with 2 swans!) are like icing on the cake. The owner, Jean, could not have been more gracious, accessible and warm. He drove from Paris to meet us on arrival, gave us a thorough tour of the home and property and made sure we felt welcomed and comfortable. Jean checked in with us regularly (his english is excellent!) and was very pleased to answer any questions and make recommendations for local restaurants, markets and sightseeing excursions, all of which made the trip feel authentically french. A lovely housekeeper/cook is available to provide as much support as you desire --- she is an excellent cook and extremely pleasant. After long days of walking the coastline, exploring nearby towns, making the trip to Mount St. Michel and the D-Day Beaches, it was wonderful to return to delicious home cooked meals. We were sad when our week came to its end and we all have such fond memories of our time at Chateau de Cource!"
