Superb

An attractive chateau set in beautiful countryside. The chateau provides charming bedrooms with modern bathrooms, none of that faded chic that the French so often provide! The property rises above fields of sunflowers in an area of mixed farming, very rural with good walking and cycling (take your own bikes!). The owners provided a warm welcome throughout and made us feel that nothing was too much to ask, nor that we were just another family passing through. We had all meals provided for the week, the dining and service was faultless, lavish and abundant. A triumph. We will definitely be returning, sooner rather than later.

Perfect getaway, fantastic hosts

My friends and I have just returned from a long weekend at Chateau Petit. The Chateau owners provide both a Bed & Breakfast service as well as exclusive rental of the whole property. We opted for the latter choosing to be fully self-catering, though Stephen and Kate (owners) do offer a catered service for groups renting the Chateau. Stephen and Kate took themselves away for a few days allowing us free reign over the property and we could not have asked for a better weekend. S & K arranged bike hire for the weekend as well as helping to manage local restaurant reservations and offered invaluable advice on the local area. The property itself is stunning and the views of the Pyrenees and the surrounding countryside are breath-taking. The bedrooms are beautifully furnished, all to a very high standard and the kitchen is exceptionally well equipped. We were very fortunate with the weather and as such the swimming pool was in constant use throughout the weekend.

Thanks Stephen and Kate for the great weekend...I know that twenty-two 5 star reviews sounds a bit too good to be true, but the combination of the property, the views and the hosts (...and with a bit of good fortune, the weather), means that this place takes some beating.

An unforgettable place, worth every penny

I booked a week at Chateau Petit to celebrate my 40th birthday, the first half of the week with friends, and the second half of the week with family.

I cannot praise the place and the owners enough!!!!!

I couldn't have celebrated my landmark birthday in any better way & our weeks stay will always be a fantastic memory.

Everything about Chateau Petit is wonderful and we loved every minute, yet felt like we had spent a lifetime there by the time it came to go home.

The owners Stephen & Kate are fantastic hosts, they're friendly, full of advice, great company, and so easy to get along with. Without them Chateau Petit would still be gorgeous, beautiful and relaxing but nowhere near as perfect and memorable.

The decor at the chateau is beautiful and sumptuous but at the same time the hosts make you feel so at home that we didn't want to leave.

Stephen & Kate made us a lovely breakfast every day, two lovely lunches, and two superb evening meals where we were introduced to & fell in love with Pousse Rapier. They also made arrangements for two birthday cakes to be locally made & collected for us, and they assisted us by arranging bicycle hire, and booking two boat trips on the canal at Condom. We did two different sorts of boat trip but if you are vaguely energetic/confident I would highly recommend hiring a boat so that you can operate the locks yourself, this was great fun!

The village of Marciac is a lovely quaint French village with a wonderful square surrounded by lots of shops, restaurants and bars. We had lunch at Le Monde which was very reasonable and on Wednesday morning we visited the market in the square which we loved.

Unfortunately my dad required hospital treatment late one evening during our stay, not only did Stephen & Kate return early to the chateau from a night out but they arranged the attendance of medical professionals, and even escorted us to the hospital to assist with translations in case our rather basic French was insufficient. They really will go beyond the call of duty to look after their guests.

I cannot say enough fantastic things about Chateau Petit and I can assure you that Stephen & Kate will give you an unforgettable stay which you will love!
