A Real Chateau
This is a real Chateau at the Loire Vally.
The house is huge, and sits in a very large property. Some of the rooms are very stylish. There are a couple other houses on this large property, another gite for example, as well as the owner and family. However, this is not a problem, as there is enough private space.
The pool, which is heated to 28 C, is shared with the gite, as well as the tennis court and the table games. The pool itself is very nice - the area around is still not totally developped. Temperatures at night are usually rather low, so 28 C is nice (not sure it holds in colder days). The tennis court is very good, with a new net. The table games are in so-so condition. The pool is a couple minutes walk from the house (probably 150 m). We also played Badminton on the grass in front of the house.
The house itself is very well equipped. Excellent professional stove, but not such a good area to prepare the food. The inside area is huge, but the rooms arrangement - vis-a-vis the bathrooms is only OK. There are 4 bathrooms/showers, some of which are not en-suite with the bedrooms.
The second floor has more bedrooms and another bathroom, but the conditions there are only OK.
Very large dining room, with tons of bowls and plates.
Wifi reception is limited to an area not far from the router. Internet service in the area is not very good.
We had 2 hours a day of cleaning service, mainly in the kitchen and dining area.
Drive to Genille, the nearest town is 6-7 minutes. There is a small supermarket there and a boulengerie. Big supermarket about 20-25 minutes and a hypermarket about 35 minutes drive.
The host, Bruno, is very nice, and helpful.
We did not get enough rest in the place. Perhaps we need to return at some point...
A beautiful chateau in a magical setting
Chateau de Marolles is a very special place to spend a vacation. The property has been in the same family since the 1850's, so the house and grounds retain the charm and beauty of a bygone era. The house is very comfortable and one instantly feels at home; one can easily slip into the role of the lord of the manor... The photos are accurate: the rooms are grand, but comfortable and are in keeping with a family country house. There are 2 inter-connected bedrooms on the ground floor, 5 bedrooms on the second floor, and 4 bedrooms in the attic. Most of the bedrooms on the 2 primary floors have private bathrooms. Both the pool and the tennis court are very nice and well maintained.
Bruno was a wonderful host and connection to the property's history and regional resources. He responded promptly to all communications and was very helpful in finding resources and answers to special requests.
Everyone in our party enjoyed their stay. We were extremely happy to be able to spend time at Chateau de Marolles and look forward to returning in the future.
Lloyd and his family and friends have been wonderful, especially gentle and respectful of the premises. It was a real pleasure to have them in our house and estate. I look forward to see them again
