When staying at our chateau, we like to offer our guests a variety of choice for their visit. We work hard to offer a unique experience, where our guests will want to return and recommend our accommodation to friends and family. We plan for our guests to enjoy the surroundings and feel part of our family.
All suites are set up for self catering. Upon arrival you will find a ‘Welcome Basket’ filled with local produce, items to make up a simple quick meal, and things you may need for snacks after a long drive. It means you don’t have to rush off to the supermarket to survive the night!
Breakfasts can be offered
If you let us know by 6pm the previous evening, we can arrange continental breakfast downstairs in the dining room for €15 per person between 8am-10am. Cereals, juices, yoghurts, bakery delights, toast, hot drinks. Or we can deliver a breakfast basket to your room.
Pre-booked grocery list
We can arrange to have items ready for your arrival in your suite. Tick the items you would like in the room on our shopping list, and they will be waiting for you when you check in. €25 fee for the convenience.
Meals – prebooked with local chef
We can arrange, with 24 hours notice, catered meals to be delivered to your suite. Tick the choice of meals from our catering list with prices included.
Salons – library/drinks
Honesty bar – we encourage you to join others to sit in the salon rooms to enjoy the chateau ambience. We have a drinks bar where you can help yourself to a wide selection of local produce…just pay as you go by dropping money in our coin tin, or sign up on your room tab. Hot drinks are also available with a coin tin for drinks whenever you want to help yourself.
The chateau computer is in the library for our guests’ use. Free wifi within the chateau, in the common rooms as well as in the suites. Board games are found in the library cupboards.
- Swimming Pool – Our 20x8m semi-heated swimming pool is located in the back garden. Available six months of the year and enclosed within a secured fence. Trees help to shade the surrounds, and a change-room is found to the back of the area.
- Gardens – The gardens have been recreated in the French style, through the use of lines and plants. The front lawn offers an area in which to view the moat and the front of the chateau. The main gardens are found through the main building to the back, where the area is divided into four sections – the topiary walk, the swimming pool, the orchard, and the garden walk. A herb and rose garden is found near the foot bridge across from the chateau, where guests can enjoy the smells of the plants on display.
- Forest – Our chateau grounds include 22 acres of forest, in which our guests can take walks along the pathways and accesses that are within our guided map. Low hanging branches and fallen trees make it a ‘nature walk’, so care needs to be taken – do so at your own risk. Wild flowers and chestnuts can be found on the ground. A Pilgrimage Grotto is also in the forest, to view and read about.
- BBQ area – Guests are welcome to sit out in the grounds to enjoy a picnic. Two BBQ areas are located in the picnic area, for family fun, especially during the long days of summer. These are gas lit, with coins needed to ignite them.
- Pataque court – Boules or Patanque is a traditional French game played mainly amongst the male members of the village. Anyone can enjoy a game in our grounds in the patanque court on the sand, near the entrance to the swimming pool area.
- Caves – Exploring the caves is a fun past time, but you will need the Caves Map to find your way around, and you need to let one of our team members know you are going down to the moat to explore. You will need to be guided in the right direction, particularly on your first visit.
- Cycling – The chateau bikes can be used on a first come, first served basis. Cycling down to the village to collect your morning croissants or baguette for lunch is a popular thing to do. Having a coffee enroute is a very French thing to enjoy.
