We had a wonderful time staying at Château La Thuilière which is stunning and beautifully decorated with a lot of historical preserved original elements / decor dating back to the 18th century.
Once there, you drive up and see this fabulous guest house at the top of the hill surrounded by a wonderful park. The location is outstanding and a little oasis. A perfect place to settle down and enjoy the beautiful surrounding. The rooms are beautifully appointed and staying at the Chateau makes you travel back in time.
Eating at the Chateau is a social experience. Dinner is held in the main dining room and all of the guests are seated at one large table. There is also an outstanding living room to relax with a drink from the honesty bar or play one of the many board-games available.
Breakfast is served at the beautiful old Château’s kitchen at the basement with a “industrial” look. It's a lovely way to make things feel more homely and encourages guests to speak to each other.
The owners Stephan and Leila are outstanding hosts. We felt so warmly welcomed and cared throughout our stay. Both were wonderful and so personable, felt like we were guests of the owners themselves. They always up for a chat and have been very helpful for tips on what to do in the area (and there is a lot to do). There is also a little chateau dog and the cat, making this place feel even more like Home.
Absolutely perfect in every sense, service and hospitality were 5*.
We are so grateful for the experience and thank you for a fantastic evenings - we will definitely be back.
PS: hope Leila is feeling a little better after her teeth surgery.
5 stars?????....... really?..... were all the previous guests blind?..... we went there with 5 star expectations, and were greeted by a woman ( owner?), who didn’t introduce herself, looked like she had just been sleeping and was complaining of an issue with her face.....she lead us up to our rooms ( 3 of us), where she couldn’t open the door, went down stairs for another key.... and ended up doing the same with our room, she also seemed very flustered at us..... why?..... when we did get in the room, it seemed as though out of a horror movie.... she ended up hoisting both feet up on a chair ( one at a time of course) to tie her shoes.... we felt like we had been transported back to something out of the Adams family..... finally, we were approached by a man who did not identify himself either, who asked what the problem was..... suffice it to say, we immediately left. We knew the owners names were Stephan and Layla, but still have no idea who these people were.....this place is out in the middle of nowhere as well..... close to places?..... no sir!...... the very best part of going into the building was being greeted by a dog (King Cavalier I believe...)..... who loves to be petted.... almost as though it was saying “ get me out of here!)..... my wif and I have had short term vacation homes in the Caribbean for over 20 years and would not think about treating a guest like this..... introductions all around, a tour of the house, as much as we can do to let our guests feel comfortable and assured of our home.... not at this place!!!
Please take another look at other properties before losing your money and being disappointed here!!!!!
We had such a wonderful time staying at Chatea La Thuiliere. Where to start? The Chateau itself is just stunning and beautifully decorated with an outstanding living room to relax with a glass of wine in the evening. The rooms are wonderful and staying at the Chateau makes you travel back in time! The Chateau is located in a wonderful park which is inviting for relaxing! Breakfast is served in the old kitchen and just outstanding with home made granola and fresh orange juice among others and every morning we were greeted by the smell of warm croissants when we came down the stairs. Sadly, we missed the dinner, but we believe it is a great experience we wouldn’t want to miss next time. Really outstanding, however, are the owners Stephan and Leila! We have never stayed at a place where we felt so welcome! Both were wonderful, always making sure that everyone was alright, always up for a chat in the living room and obviously very helpful for tips what to do in the area (and there is lots to see and to do!). Personal highlight were the little chateau dog and the cat, making this place feel like Home! We will definitely be back!
We had a wonderful time holidaying at the Chateau. It is stylish and atmospheric, a very special place to stay. Stephane and Leila are such warm hosts, we felt very well taken care of throughout. They had great local recommendations as well. There is so much to do in the area from exploring beautiful villages, swimming in the lake with a sandy beach, wine tasting. The pool at the Chateau is lovely and the whole setting is so peaceful. Coming from the city we enjoyed the quiet and seeing so many stars at night. Breakfast is amazing and dinner in the Chateau is a real treat. Absolutely delicious food and great fun eating in the grand dining room. Merci Stephane and Leila! we hope to return
*we actually stayed here in Sept 2017, but I cannot change the date to reflect this.
Whenever I think of my stay at Chateau La Thuiliere, I get a warm fuzzy feeling. From the moment you turn into the estate you feel calm. The Chateau has been beautifully restored and feels like a home away from home.
Eating at the Chateau is a social experience. Dinner is held in the main dining room and all of the guests are seated at one large table, while breakfast is served in the most beautiful kitchen. It's a lovely way to make things feel more homely and encourages guests to speak to each other if they wise to.
Jordi is a wonderful host and an incredible chef. The whole time we were at the Chateau we felt like we were floating on clouds.
If you are looking for a peaceful, slice of heaven, then Chateau La Thuiliere is the place for you.
