Wonderful holiday in fantastic chateau

We have just returned from a wonderful group holiday at Chateau Le Maurin. This property is truly exceptional and Amanda, the owner, is very welcoming. There were plenty of facilities to keep our group of adults, children and teens thoroughly entertained. We were particularly impressed with the attention to detail which had gone in to making the chateau feel like a home from home. I would wholeheartedly recommend Chateau Le Maurin for a holiday.
