The setting and ambience of the chateau was an absolute delight and the scenery, especially from the terrace, was stunning. It was an area of France that we did not know well and we much enjoyed the various trips to the surrounding villages, markets and sights. Sima was attentive, gracious, and gave good local advice as well as providing stimulating company on occasions! She was kind and generous to us all and provided extra presents for our grandchildren, including an inflatable to play on in the pool and on the river. The three generations of family (10 months - 70 years) were well catered for in terms of provision and the swimming, both in the pool and in the Vis was a real bonus, as were the internal living areas and the spacious terrace. The overall ambience of the chateau was simply wonderful but, during our stay, some minor concerns became apparent and we did mention some of these to Sima. Curtain hangings in the bedrooms often fell from insecure fittings; the quality of the bedding ranged from exotic in the main bedrooms to others that were less luxurious. As is usual in France, in our experience, bathroom facilities were somewhat strange and the otherwise high quality of the establishment could do with a further full bathroom. Overall, this was a really good holiday; perhaps on the pricey side but nonetheless a bit special.
