Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a lovely stay in this place. It is incredibly beautiful and spacious. We were 11 people and fit in more than comfortably. The housekeeper, Madame Philippe, is wonderful. She went far out of her way to help us out when we needed it. Christine is also very kind. She always made sure we were well situated and answered any questions we had. The location is very good. It is very near a lot of the popular tourist destinations, and there is a grocery store and gas station right next door. I would highly recommend this place for anyone who is looking for somewhere to stay.

Formidable sejour !

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passe un excellent WE de réveillon, nous étions 4 familles, toutes très confortablement installées.

La maison est très grande et le parc est immense et très bien entretenu. A proximité des plages et en pleine nature, c'est un endroit idéal pour les grands et les petits.

Nous le recommandons vivement.

Nous sommes tous ravis de notre séjour et en garderons un excellent souvenir.

Maison chaleureuse dans un très beau cadre

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé un weekend en famille dans cette belle maison accueillante qui satisfait autant les adultes que les enfants. Tout était mis à notre disposition pour que nous passions un bon séjour. Le jardin et le court de tennis ont été appréciés (le beau temps nous a permis d'en profiter pleinement).

Nous garderons un très bon souvenir de cet endroit et nous le recommandons.

Excellent séjour dans cette belle demeure

  • 5 of 5


Nous étions 11 pour ce weekend de 3 jours

Nous avons eu un temps superbe ce qui nous a permis de profiter de Fécamp et Etretat, une ballade de 2 heures dans la campagne aux environs du château.

Literie confortable, chambres salle de bains spacieuses.

La présence d'objets, de photos appartenant aux propriétaires donnent de la "chaleur" à l'habitation.

La photo reflète bien la réalité.

Facile d'accès depuis l'ouest de la région parisienne

Location propre et entretenue.

Possibilité de déjeuner dehors....ce que nous avons fais.

La réalité était conforme au descriptif.

Grande table dans la cuisine où nous avons pris nos diners.

Très bon rapport qualité/prix

Excellent séjour dans ce vaste château

  • 5 of 5

Ce château est parfait pour regrouper jusqu'à 14 personnes entre amis ou en famille. Perdu dans la jolie campagne.

Une impression d'espace et de sérénité avec ce très grand parc, bien entretenu et doté d'arbres non moins magnifiques. Et pour les sportifs, le tennis vous tend les bras. Repas dedans ou dehors sur la terrasse, avec le barbecue à gaz bien pratique.

Deux petits bémols : un salon un peu étroit pour des repas à 14 mais on tient quand même. Et une faible couverture GSM, mais après tout on est là pour couper.

Plein de belles choses à voir autour, notamment la côte mais pas que.

Enfin merci aux propriétaires qui font tout pour que vous vous sentiez bien chez eux, ce qui fut assurément notre cas.
