Great stay in a spacious house and garden
This delightful 7 bedroom chateau was a wonderful place to share 2 weeks with family and friends. We enjoyed the large high-ceilinged rooms, well-equipped kitchen & made the most of the upright piano. Some more energetic members of our party also did slack-lining between two of the large trees in the extensive garden. We also made good use of the large terrace and the rather basic barbecue. The house was well-located as a base for exploring Lille, World War One battlefields & cemeteries & other places of historical interest. Situated close to the banks of the Deule River, we found the centre of Wambrecies picturesque & were very pleased to find it also offered a great patisserie & butcher.
Fantastic Property in charming town
I booked this property for 12 of us to celebrate my 50th birthday and take in some games at the Euro 2016 Football Championships. Having read the reviews before booking I was expecting something good but it's difficult to sum up quite how magnificent this place is. Although we were a big party the house felt very spacious, it was immaculately and tastefully decorated and had everything we needed in terms of facilities and equipment. Among lots of highlights was sitting around the large table on the glorious terrace long into the evening, snooker tournaments in the billiards room and meals in the decadent dining room.
We enjoyed the shops, canal side walks and bars of Wambrechies, which is only five minutes away, and the ease with we which we could get into central Lille which is only twenty minutes by bus.
Thanks Carine for being such a welcoming and helpful host., I very much hope one day to return to this beautiful place.
Thank you very much for your nice comments, it was a pleasure to receive you in our charming village of Wambrechies and hope to see you again.
Great house, warm welcome and charming village
We stayed here with friends (9 adults and 5 children) over New Year 2016 and we liked it so much we are going back next year. The quality of the furnishings and the house itself exceeded our expectations from the pictures on the website and it had everything that we needed for our stay, including a pool table, which we didn't know we needed ! We had a very warm welcome on arrival. The village of Wambrechies is small but the people we met at the tourist office, brasserie, creperie and local shops were all charming and helpful.
It was also a good base to explore Lille, Ghent, Bruges, Paris (by TGV) and various war memorials and we are all looking forward to our return trip.
We stayed here for my Husbands 60th Birthday and I would highly recommend staying here. The pictures and the website do not do the property justice, it is a beautiful house. The owner was there to welcome us and before our arrival provided lots of useful information, including recommending a chef for the Saturday night.
The property was spotless, the beds extremely comfortable. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need and more!
The village of Wambrechies is small, but quite pretty and has all the shops that you need for self catering as well as a handful of restaurants. The property is 7km from Lille and on a main and frequent bus route.
Treat yourself to a wonderful holiday
Beautiful accomodation & our stay was the highlight of our European trip. Property was clean, beautifully decorated with quality furnishings & fittings. Preparing meals was a delight in the well equiped kitchen. It was a short stroll to buy pastries & essential treats. The garden was very relaxing with views from every window. The entire house was atmospheric, spacious, secure & a great place to relax. Beds were very comfortable. Our hostess was warm & obliging. She went out of her way to help us settle in to ensure our stay was perfect. Great for a group of couples or an extended family retreat. Ideal location for visiting the Battlefields on the Western Front. Our 6 day stay was fantastic & the highlight of our holiday. This property was so good you could spend your entire holiday without going anywhere & have a wonderful time.
Exquisite Christmas Castle
We stayed at La Chataigneraie with a group of 12 adults, pre-celebrating Christmas. This 1785 "Chateau de la Chasse" was fully prepared for that, including a perfect dining room, living, and extremely well equipped kitchen. The house was already completely prepared by the landlady, with lots of candles and Christmas decorations everywhere. It is a strategic hide-out, with a very affordable UberX taxi service available to travel around Lille. Pleasant service is that the rental price includes all linen and cleaning.
Le Chateau is located in the beautiful village of Wambrechies, famous for its Genievre distillery, its marina, the Pupée and Jouet Ancien museums, its neo-Gothic church, castles, and trail along the Deule.
For golf lovers, 2 courts of 18 holes located 2 km from the property, in Bondues.
Climbing lovers, the climbing lounge of Wambrechies is one of the largest of the region.
Bondues aerodrome, 2 km, from Chateau, you can ride hot air balloons, helicopters, do parachuting, etc.
The city centre of Lille is located just 7 km from the Chateau, where you can discover the old town, the large plaza, its monuments, history, restaurants, large stores and delicacies.
