Reviews

  • This Is My Happy Place!

    Posted by Alison on 16/07/2018

    What can I say? If only there was a six-star rating. We (a group of about 25 wine lovers, ranging from babies to retirees) have been coming here for years, for an annual get-together. Lucky us. Prior to finding Chateau Le Maurin Estate, we used to try a new location every couple of years (France, Belgium, Devon...) but once we found this, we couldn't beat it. The arrangement of the accommodation and facilities are everything we need: kids, teenagers, parents, all happy - with enough space to do our own thing, and enough space to congregate together inside or out, and watch the stars from the terrace. Good sized pool, solid functional utilities (i.e. no surprises with plumbing, washing, kitchen etc), acres of land, trampolines, games room, all get put through their paces by our group. Lovely lanes to run/cycle/explore, vineyards to visit (or be visited by!), huge supermarket and shops a short drive away. All with a sense of blissful isolation when on the property. Amanda and her team keep this gorgeous building beautifully, effortlessly tasteful and comfortable. They are very helpful and easy to deal with.

  • Chateau Le Maurin is truly beautiful.

    Posted by Brian T on 23/09/2013

    Chateau Le Maurin proved to be an inspired choice as a venue for our family holiday this year. 27 of us, varying in age from 4 - 80, descended on Amanda's tranquil oasis in July and any pre-holiday nerves, as to whether or not the property would live up to the marketing, were immediately calmed because Chateau Le Maurin is truly beautiful. The property has been so well thought out on every level with great interior design, great landscaping, all the facilities you will need including all the toys to keep the younger members amused as well as having enough space for every guest, even in a group our size, to have their own space. The owner could not have been more helpful or charming. We would love to go back and re-live what was an exceptional holiday.

  • A truly beautiful Chateau ideal for the whole family

  • Wonderful holiday in fantastic chateau

    Posted by Annabelle Patel on 05/06/2013

    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.
