“Fabuluos experience in a stunning setting to be remembered for a very long time. Only to be recommended!” Chateau "La Plaine" is a beautiful, authentic castle offering an excellent blend of the original look & feel of a mid-nineteenth century castle and a tasteful modernisation (bathrooms, kitchen, library, swimming pool, heating,...) surrounded by a beautiful, 12 ha large, stone-wall fenced garden with own oak forest and a few mighty, beautiful Lebanon cedars. We stayed for 2 weeks with friends and their families with many children. They all loved the house, the accomodation and the garden. The huge garden and own forest was great for playing outside. The only drawback was that due to relatively cold weather, we could not enjoy the large pool as much as we would have liked. La Plaine is also a very good starting point for visits to the famous castles of the Loire - Chenonceau and many others are within an easy day trip distance - and historic town of Richelieu to the North is 20 minutes' drive, the Futuroscope near Poitiers is about 30 minutes' drive to the South. Other easy day trips - with a bit more driving - took us to the Atlantic to La Rochelle or Ile de Re. If you feel like eating out, there are some good restaurants in the area - for instance in Chatellerault or in Chinon - but to some you have to count 45 minutes' drive. For a special occasion, we used external catering and by chance an excellent caterer has its base for France in nearby Chatellerault. So food and service was excellent. We liked it very much in "La Plaine". The owners and the house keeper were very friendly and forthcoming. The final cleaning was done by specialised personnel for a very fair price. A small drawback is the missing internet access, since mobile data connection out in the French countryside is not very stable. If you look for a special place for a family get-together, holiday or meet friends, "La Plaine" is definitively a place I can warmly recommend.

“Wonderful, relaxing holiday in beautiful location and stunning french chateau” We travelled through France by car in August, stopping at various hotels and were delighted to arrive at Chateau Caillac. Our first port of call was a dip in the pool overlooking the river - marvellous! The Chateau offered our group flexible accommodation and activities - I wanted to sunbathe, drink wine and chat. My husband wanted to watch the Olympics, deal with emails (work) and walk. Friends boated, cycled - and also drank wine. The Chateau was so well equipped that we wanted for nothing. It was so easy to cycle or walk to local villages for lunch or dinner - and the farmers market with evening entertainment made us realise why we love France so much. I would unreserevedly recommend this chateau to everyone looking for contemporary conveniences with old world charms.

“Perfect French retreat” Riandaule was amazing - peaceful, charming, comfortable - the perfect location for a vacation in the French countryside. When we arrived, the caretaker met us to show us around, and had left wine and bread and chocolates for us. There was a large binder full of information on anything we would need - the location of the best local bakery, the grocery store, market days, things to do in nearby towns, and detailed instructions on how to work everything in the house. Even though Tory and John Mark weren't there physically, we certainly felt their presence there in spirit! The kitchen was fully stocked with dishes, spices, and other cooking implements, making home-made meals very easy. The bedrooms were very comfortable, and there were so many cozy spaces in the house to relax and read or talk. The house is right on the Dordogne river, and on a nice day it's wonderful to just sit out on chairs and watch the wildlife. You wouldn't want to be here without a car, as there really isn't anything within walking distance, but everything is very easy to find. Bergerac is a short drive away, and the region is full of interesting towns to explore. The perfect place to stay for a lovely vacation!
