A Birthday Treat

  • 4 of 5

We had the most marvellous time at the Chateau. I had too many friends decide at last minute to join me on my birthday adventure, that we also had to rent another cottage on the property. With friends from all over the world descending, the Marquess and the Marquis were wonderful host, always available when needed, yet leaving us alone when not. A kitchen large enough to cook grand family meals, grounds big enough to walk, a beautiful pool to swim and lounge by, we all had a wonderful times celebrating my birthday at the Chateau. In the family room the fascinating history of the Chateau is documented in books. With something for everyone, and a large outdoors to entertain I definitely recommend this chateau for anyone who wants a place to celebrate. What lacks in new fittings makes up for in personality authenticity and ease.

Magnifique demeure de charme située dans un parc non moins sublime!

  • 5 of 5

Le château de Paray Le Fresil est l'endroit parfait pour passer un agréable séjour en famille ou entre amis. Niché dans un parc anglais de plusieurs hectares, il offre toutes les commodités dont vous avez besoin. Le coin piscine est agréable et bien exposé. Et la région gagne réellement à être connue, avec beaucoup d'activités "nature" à proximité. Enfin, les hôtes, Esmeralda et Victoire, sont d'une grande gentillesse.

Feel like a nobleman:noblewoman for a week

  • 4 of 5

The setting was beautiful, the château still has a lot of its original splendour. Plenty of space to host 3 to 4 families with children. Not too far south, so nice location to travel to from Belgium, Netherlands. Minor: not much to see in the area. (too far away from more interesting locations - Bourgogne vineyards)
