"Le Castelet is a magnificent place for your dream holiday"
Le Castelet is a magnificent place for a relaxed but stylish holiday. We were a group of six families with 12 adults and 12 children ranging from 4 to 16 years of age. The property is so large with the main building, and side buildings, two pools and the petanque area that it easily accomodates such a group. The whole property is stunning and well kept. The most beautiful areas are the main building itself, the vast terraces including the outdoor dining area, and the main pool area together with the outdoor kitchen and barbecue. We would love to go to Le Castelet again.

"Wow - yet again Le Castelet gave my family the most magical holiday"
This was our fourth stay at Le Castelet and in all respects it was perfect.The Bastide is stunning and has been beautifully finished and has the most breath taking views.The accomodation is of an exceptionally high standard and is undoubtedly unique because it can accomodate large parties in a relaxed and flexible manner.The age range of our party is 85 years - 9 years.The gardens and pools are also beautiful.The surrounding area is heaped in all good things you want on a holiday - culture,restaurants,art,cycling and still we discover more.This year my nephew and girl friend hosted a wine tating in the Cabenon by the vineyard and it was such good fun and the most perfect setting.
Every year we have arranged everything through Bi Puranen and we are extremely grateful to her and her family for allowing us to stay in such a magical place.We have stayed in other places and they have never met the mark of Le castelet.

"Absolutely Fabulous Property"
We stayed for a week at Le Castelet in mid August. We were a large extended family group ranging in age from 11 to very old! (my mother would not thank me if I put her age on the internet). The property was perfect for us. My parents used the lift to travel between their bedroom, the main living accommodation and the pool terrace. The property is very beautiful and the views from the two infinity pools stunning. There are many gorgeous villages in the area to explore but because the house was so lovely we spent a lot of time there, playing boules, making pizzas etc. The property has been used as a home by the owners and contains lots of their possessions and high tech equipment. We felt very lucky to be staying there. We met the owners when we arrived and they gave us a very thorough show around to explain how everything worked. It is a massive house and we did need to contact the owners from time to time to ask how to do things. They were always very helpful. The property is expensive but we thought it worth it. The security deposit was returned on time with deductions made as set out in the rental agreement. Large deductions were made for electricity, vat, and final cleaning but it is a big house and we used a lot or air conditioning, lifts etc.
Overall, we all thought it was without doubt the most fabulous property that we had ever stayed at and we would love to return.
