Chateau Le Mur was a feast for the eyes, soul and spirit as we brought in 2013! The Chateau's palatial beauty inside and out is beyond description. We felt we had gone back in time to a castle in the middle ages! Eclectic and fun, colourful and comfortable, it is not an experience to be missed. As you wander around the property you'll discover cows, sheep, an orchard, a deep, dark enchanted forest and an ancient renovated manoir complete with rooms and a chapel. Every place you step has a different feel and a special story to tell. Fantastic!
We had the privilege of experiencing this amazing slice of countryside and were not disappointed, in fact, quite the opposite. It was so much better than the photos or words could describe!
The hospitality was amazing, Terry and Ernie were friendly, helpful and willing to help in whatever way we needed, whether it was running us into the local village or teaching us with a word of two of French we needed to order food.
As a runner, I enjoyed running through the woods, fields, orchards and surrounding roads. It was so peaceful and beautiful at that time of year (summer). We also sampled cider made from the apples from the orchard as well as daily fresh cow's milk.
During our stay we were taken into Renne to visit a bigger city as well as to the local village markets to sample local cuisine and crafts, both of which we loved. We also had the opportunity to use bikes provided for biking around the countryside and exploring that way.
The Chateau itself provided a spectacular setting to enjoy dinner on the balcony or in the large dining room. We were treated to many wonderful home cooked meals that used many ingredients from the farm, orchards and so on.
Overall our time was charming and we were so pleased to stay somewhere authentic and full of character.
