somptueux !

  • 5 of 5

Tout juste un rêve !

Nous avons fêtés nos anniversaires avec mon conjoint au sein du château des Girards sur un week-end.

Tout a été parfait : de la découverte de la (splendide) bâtisse, en passant par les merveilleuses chambres en allant jusqu’au délicieux brunch et repas proposés par Ursulla et Cendrine. Nous avons pu dans ce cadre magique profiter de la piscine couverte et du jardin qui s'étend à perte de vue.

Nous étions 18 et , même si nous avions pris le partie de faire certaines chambres avec 4 couchages, tout le monde a été merveilleusement bien installé.

Un immense merci à Dimitri et son équipe pour cette parenthèse qui a ravie nos amis autant que nous !

on revient dès que possible !

A bientôt

Xavier, Cécile et tout leurs amis...

As beautiful as the photos - perfect for a group

  • 5 of 5

The photos are so beautiful...could the manor live up to our expectations? YES, it is every bit as beautiful as the photos. We were a group of 13 friends spending a week to relax, enjoy great meals on the patio, do some hiking, enjoy Bastille Day, and see a stage of Le Tour de France.

Surrounded by cheese-producing farms, the location is quite idyllic, with cows regularly wandering past the driveway. The day starts when you make yourself a double espresso, step onto the huge patio overlooking the mist-shrouded valley, and breath the crisp air. It ends when you enjoy an hours-long dinner by candlelight on the same patio under the stars. In between, maybe you'll do some hiking, shop in town at the market, buy some cheese at a nearby farm, see a local festival, or laze in the sun. It's all good, and it's all relaxing.

The kitchen was very well equipped, from the dishwashers and induction cooktop to the Nespresso and drip coffee machines. The outdoor grill worked wonders with some beef and salmon, the spare refrigerator came in handy for all the champagne we enjoyed, and the laundry machines onsite were a bonus. The bedrooms and baths are simply stunning, very comfortable, and the setting is wonderfully quiet (with the exception of one bedroom near the kitchen, depending on how loud the group is in the morning...put early risers in that room!). The wine cellar, prep kitchen, wifi access, and guides to the local area (not to mention the ease of getting help from our host, Dimitri) round out the features that made this property work so well for us.

Hiking is right outside the front door, the pool is small and sheltered, the adjacent patio is spacious and sunny. The nearby towns have everything you might want, including a major grocery store and the wonderful specialty shops and market days.

We were able to catch stage 18 of Le Tour - Alpe d'Huez - and saw the riders climb the mountain twice for the first time in the race's 100 year history. What a thrill!

I highly recommend this property for groups who want ensuite baths, space to spread out, a tranquil setting and elegant surroundings. I can only imagine how beautiful it must be in the winter.

Merci, Dimitri, for a wonderful week!

Un mariage de rêve

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un week end de rève dans ce château à la fois très confortable et décoré avec beaucoup de goût.

Tout était parfait le château et ses chambres spacieuses et merveilleuses, le jardin et les terrasses, la salle de réception pour le mariage.

On ferait bien ça tous les ans!

Un séjour pas loin des pistes

  • 5 of 5

C'est rare, mais les photos du site ne rendent pas tout à fait hommage au château des Girards : c'est bien plus beau en réalité !!!

Les chambres sont vraiment spacieuses, avec chacune sa salle de bain/douche : malgré notre nombre (9 adultes et 7 enfants), nous n'étions absolument pas à l'étroit, chacun avait ses aises.

La piscine est un délice, bien chauffée, il n'y a que la cour à traverser, et aucun risque qu'un enfant s'y aventure seul (elle ferme à clé).

La cuisine, et l'arrière cuisine avec ses deux laves vaisselles (un indispensable), donnent vraiment envie de se mettre aux fourneaux.

Bref, à recommander, un cadeau à se faire à plusieurs, été comme hiver. Et pourquoi pas un mariage...
