HISTORICAL DEFENCE CASTLE CHANGED IN COUNTRY CASTLE NEAR MEUSE RIVER

Sedan Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

The castle in an ownership of Cardinal Mazarin which stayed in here 1651 during the period of civil war called 'La Fronde'. This Renaissance castle was progressively changed in a country castle (18. and 19. centuries) with 'Jardins à la française'. It is located near the Meuse River, in the peninsula of Iges, described by Emile Zola as the camp of miseries. It has been the witness of the French capitulation of Sedan in 1870. The castle offers 2 double rooms, one triple room, 3 mini-suites, a Renaissance dining room with a stone fire place, and a living room, with a capacity of 16 people in a magic and authentic place, which preserved the heart of its origins, for moments of exception. There’s the possibility of accommodation of 6 additional people in the outbuildings.

AMAZING ENJOYABLE TRIP

  • 5 of 5
We went with a group of 12 friends and had a really enjoyable trip. The Castle was furnished to the period it was built in, which was great to see. It was close enough to head to Belgium for a day trip (only 25 minutes away) as well as a tour of the famous champagne houses (about 1.5 hours away). It does take a bit of time to drive from Calais, but was worth it. It was around a 10 minute drive from the main town which has multiple supermarkets and restaurants.

CHATEAU DE VILLETTE

  • 3 of 5
We were a party of 9 adults on a cycling holiday, the Chateau provided good facilities for a large party I.e. 7 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. The location of the property makes it easy to access roads and transport in the locality.
However, the property does lack 'home comforts', this not surprising for a property of its age. The kitchen is adequate, reasonably well equipped with utensils, plates and glasses. The living area is not particularly comfortable and most of the beds lacked a good mattress and bedding, towels provided were also 'wafer thin' and when we requested a change of towels after 4 days, this was not forthcoming. No washing machine is provided.

Owner's Response: The owner and staff of the castle were present during the whole stay of the group and were available for any question. We are surprised that their comments were not given orally during their stay especially when I asked them if all was OK their response was systematically yes. Concerning the comfort, it is obvious that antique furniture is different than new comfortable furniture, especially eighteen century sofa and armchairs in the living room. Concerning the towels 24 (12 large and 12 medium + 12 washcloths) were provided at the arrival, and they are usually changed every week. A washing machine was available in the laundry upon request to the maid at a cost of 10€/machine(9kg). A proposal for the washing was made but no date nor time was given by the guests

LOVELY OLD CASTLE

  • 4 of 5
This "Chateau" was rustic and nice, and it was a pleasure to stay at such a special vacation home. The castle is furnished with old furniture which suits the castle very well. The property was clean and well maintained, but during our stay, one of the bathrooms was closed off because of disfunction. We were 12 friends staying at the castle, and we had plenty of space. It was well equipped for cooking and even though some of the cups were a bit "beaten up". The castle had a very friendly "madame". She help us with all practical questions and was available for cleaning up and helping in the kitchen. We had a wonderful stay at Chateau Villette.
