“Blissful”
Reviewed 4 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We have just returned from an absolutely amazing week in Arfeuilles. The chateau is genuinely even more beautiful than in the pictures. Alle and his wife were the perfect hosts.
The rooms are delightful, the kitchen huge and so much outdoor space. We spent the vast majority of our time around the pool, reading and enjoying BBQ's. The nearby countryside is stunning, well worth a walk.
We all had a really wonderful time. Thank you.

“Wonderful family holiday”
Reviewed 8 December 2016 for a stay in May 2015

We have just returned from a truly special holiday at Chateau Arfeuilles. Our group comprised seven adults ranging from 35 to 70+, a four year old and eight month old baby. Staying at the Chateau is like stepping back in time - it really is like having your own little stately home for the week. Large bedrooms, sympathetically restored to their original charm and grandeur, bathrooms complete with fantastic showers and/or roll top bath (and hot water at all times - we were a little concerned that this would be an issue like many old houses), two separate living rooms, a huge kitchen where we spent most of our time when inside, and a smaller kitchen with washing machine and extra fridge to store drinks, baby food etc.

Outside is possibly even better. The pool area is beautiful. The pool was very cold; unfortunately we didn't have the best weather at the start of our stay so it didn't have much of a chance to heat up. However, in the summer it would be perfect. A table tennis table in the corner of the garden, which was an added bonus! Two separate spaces to eat (front of house in the morning, pool area later in the day) so you'll always be in the sun. The village itself is quaint and charming. There is a boulangerie, small shop and a chemist. Unfortunately the bar/restaurant wasn't open, which was disappointing, but we opted to eat in the Chateau each night instead. Please note that the nearest supermarket is a good 15 minutes drive away so a car is essential. The village is surrounded by lush countryside and mountains - seriously beautiful.

A couple of slight criticisms (and I've still rated it 5* so they didn't come close to ruining the holiday). I'm not sure whether it's a cultural thing (we were the first English family to rent the Chateau) but we would have expected a few basic things to be included in the rental price, such as salt and pepper, cooking oil, washing up liquid, enough toilet roll for the entire stay and firelighters. Plus, the bath towels are essentially hand towels. Apparently a lot of French only use this size but you'll have to get used to taking your clothes into the bathroom to get dressed after your shower (unless you know your fellow guests VERY well!!) Alle and Linda are lovely, gracious hosts. They popped in every so often to replace towels (they kindly brought us larger beach towels to use in the bathroom), and to water the plants. They were always warm and polite and never intrusive.

Overall, we had as close to perfect a stay as you can get. If you're looking for a large house that can accommodate a large family get together in peaceful, stunning surroundings, with all the mod cons you need without losing any of the charm and grandeur the French are so well known for, I'd thoroughly recommend Chateau Arfeuilles. We wouldn't hesitate to return.

Thank you so much for this rating!

Fortunately the village bar/restaurant has reopened. It serves affordable typically French dishes accompanied by local wines (e.g. Côte Roannaise) (or any other drink you could want). It is a 4 minutes walk from our house to the restaurant.

It's indeed a cultural difference, but especially for those who appreciate it, we'll provide large bathing towels now.

We found this property as my husband was taking part in Ironman Vichy and we needed somewhere relaxing but close to event that could also accommodate our large family group.
Upon arrival we were immediately impressed with the property as it was even better than the pictures! The grounds were beautiful. We were also greeted by the owners, Alle and Linda who were extremely friendly and helpful during our stay.
We were just as pleased with inside the property, all rooms were clean and tidy. The pool was a good size, our children spent most of the time in it! The kitchen also had an excellent selection of utensils and appliances- the owners have really thought of everything!
If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing holiday in the French countryside then this chateau is perfect.
We had a fantastic holiday!!
