The first impression of the house is incredible- it’s very isolated and located in the rolling hills of the French countryside. We are quite a noisy group and nobody heard us throughout our stay. The usual concern is that the house might look worse than in pictures, however this was quite the opposite: The house is nicer and a lot bigger than it seems in photos. The house is very modern and appears as if it was recently renovated which gave a lovely feel. Features such as the large, open showers and American fridge/freezer really made a difference to our stay.
The outside areas and pool are, again, nicer than in the pictures. The pool looks slightly small in photos but in real it’s large enough (not really for doing laps, but for cooling down/ floating around it’s perfect).
Virginie was a lovely, attentive host who did everything to make our stay comfortable- I couldn’t fault her.
Overall, I found this property to be outstanding value for money. You won’t find properties of this calibre in the region for a better price!
Our 4-nights stay at Au Marquis was nothing short of amazing. The Chateau has recently been renovated and is thus in excellent condition. Its vintage, elegant and prestigious, is mixed with high-quality, modern fixtures. From the kitchen, to the living room to the stunning bedrooms and the pool & barbecue area, you’ll find all the comfort, equipment and appliances you need. The outdoors are as well maintained and generous as the indoors. There were so many places to enjoy your stay.
But really what makes Au Marquis truly special is Alison & Chris. I’ve rented dozens of homes and they were the best hosts ever. Their presence on the other side of the chateau is discreet and as soon as you need anything, they’ll go above and beyond to help. They take such a good care of both their wonderful estate and their guests. Getting to know them, it was all the more difficult to leave. But we’ll most certainly be back, and I undoubtedly recommend renting Au Marquis to anyone.
