High expectations marred by little things that make all the difference!
We booked Le Mazel (Le Mazelle. Advertised) for a family holiday to celebrate a special occasion. 21 of us in total from youngest at 1 to age 70.
The chateau is in a lovely spot, very rural at the top of a hill, with amazing views of the distant mountains and surrounding hills. It was a shame that we couldn't take the view in, as advertised, from the chateau's tower with its 365 views.....it's padlocked and as such is not accessible. When we asked about it after arriving at the chateau, we were told it can be opened by the guardian at times suitable to him...namely when he comes to clean the pool at approx 10am on 2 of the days. Not ideal when you want to be out and about exploring before the sun gets too hot.
There is space galore, although the gite is quite separate to the main building, accessing via the poolside, which has a lockable door to keep the kids away from the water. Wonderful... Plus
