Staying at the Chateau
"Dear Stephanie, David & Andrew,
Ant and I would just like to thank you all for making Steph and Eleanor's celebrations so special. Your beautiful Chateau - pretty impressive at any time! - looked incredible throughout. The gardens looked particularly fabulous and I know the weather on THE day could not have better but to be able to sit for the service looking up at the girls looking gorgeous and saying those incredibly moving words to each other with the backdrop of your magical chateau in all its glory was a moment I shall never forget.
All our family and friends commented about what a special space you have created. And you all worked so hard to ensure that even the smallest of details had been thought about and were executed in such a lovely, relaxed, low-key way. Everything and everyone were always in the right place at the right time (don't know HOW you did that!) and Andrew's meticulous attention to detail- always willing to handle even the smallest request- made the whole three days of celebrations go without a hitch. I am just so sorry that all your hard work behind the scenes meant we were unable to enjoy your company as much as we would have liked! With many thanks again from both Ant and myself."

"Dear Stephanie and David,
Just a note to say thank you so much for our amazing New Year's stay at your beautiful Chateau. As you know this is our 6th visit and whatever time of year we come there is always something wonderful to enjoy. It has been a real privilege to watch the way you constantly update the facilities so there is always something new to see. We loved the new wedding barn and the French Resistance bar you've put in the stables - maybe we should consider renewing our vows...
Best wishes and see you in August!"

"This fabulous restored chateau, set in seven acres of woodland,
is owned and managed by the mother of the fashion designer Henry Holland -
one of the rooms is even named after him. A stay here is bucolic bliss,
especially if you book the private Maison Guardien, the ultimate romantic hideaway "

"We had the great pleasure of staying at the chateau during New Year
week. The accommodation was first class - we stayed in the Leopard suite
which was elegantly decorated, spotlessly clean and had a terrific view of
the gardens via the balcony. Other rooms in the chateau are similarly impressive,
and we spent many hours in the lounge relaxing infront of the huge open fire.
Stephanie and David were the perfect hosts - making us feel like the chateau
was our own. We ate out in Montlucon in some of the great restaurants there,
but the highlight for us was the celebration meal Stephanie put on for us one
evening with delicacies from the region - sensational!"

"Chère Stéphanie !..
Tout simplement et du fond du coeur : "MERCI - MERCI - MERCI" !...
Juste vous dire que vraiment tout était parfait.
Nous gardons soigneusement vos coordonnées et vous assurons revenir bientôt!"
"On our stay in Europe we stayed at multiple chateaux in France. After
a long drive from Barcelona we arrived at the Chateau du Ludaix late at night;
one of the most beautiful chateaux of our stay. The hospitality and warmth felt
by the owners was exceptional and beyond compare. The chateau was more than
we imagined with its fairy tale qualities and history. We were catered
to hand and foot, but felt like family. We thank you so much for such an amazing
stay that will have a permanent place in our hearts and memories!"
