Louis - twin room with ensuite shower room. Silk lined walls. A 3 metre high window overlooking the grounds. It has a small sofa that can be used as a bed for a small child.
There is also a lounge area and a kitchen with a fridge, microwave, sink, coffee machine, kettle
This takes up all of the second floor, which gives you great privacy. They are attic rooms so they have smaller windows but still have very high ceilings.

There is also a small but very versatile third room - it can be used as a kitchen, sitting area or a third bedroom with a fold up bed added to it. It has a sink, fridge, microwave and kettle
It is small but perfectly formed and is designed for families with just one child...but we often fit two kids in!
It is also ideal for grandparents who want to come on a family holiday but want to have a good degree of privacy.

The sofa bed has a proper mattress and can be made up as a single bed.
Whole house bookings
Whole house bookings (seven rooms) are from £850 a night self catering for up to 14 guests. Utility bills are extra and there is a security deposit that is refunded after you leave. It is also possible to hire the cottages at the same time but the total number of guests on site must not exceed 14 in winter and 20 in summer (this is because Le Castel is not a huge, rambling chateau and experience has shown that those are the maximum number of guests that the property can house comfortably for meals etc).
Whole house bookings on a B&B basis are from £900 a night for up to 14 guests. There is daily cleaning, no utility bills to pay and no security deposit. There is no use of the main kitchen with the B&B option.
Payments and deposits
Le Castel does not take credit cards, although you can use one via paypal with a service charge.
We also take UK or French bank transfers in sterling or euros.
To confirm a booking we require a 25% deposit or a sum equal to the first night (whichever is greater). This deposit is non refundable, so please consider travel insurance.
Bookings of two suites or more on a B&B basis must be fully paid ten weeks prior to arrival and are non refundable at that stage.
All inclusive bookings must be fully paid ten weeks prior to arrival
Gite bookings must also be fully paid ten weeks prior to arrival.
The llamas that feature in many of our press articles are no longer at Le Castel - they have gone off to see llady llamas!
