We stayed in the cottage in January as a pre visit- We are hiring the chateau in the summer to hold our wedding there, so this was a visit to check out all the local amenaties and the property itself.
Even in the depths of winter (it was -5 when we arrived) the properties and gardens are wonderful. The Cottage was an ideal base for exploring the local area and there is plenty to do within 15-20mins, I would say a car is essential to make the most of your visit. The description of the property is an accurate reflection and although we didn't get bath robes all the bath towels and linen were of a high standard. The welcome book was really helpful in suggesting places to visit and we hopped on a train to paris for the day. The owner has been very helpful in suggesting local contacts to help on our wedding day and now we are really excited about visiting with all of our family for hopefully a wonderful family holiday and a fabulous wedding.
