The Manor House and Park

"We do congratulate you on your style, wonderful French simplicity, total comfort and extraordinary, hard working and delightful staff. We have been thoroughly spoilt!" Gibson


The Gateway original

This charming manor house and park nestles on the edge of the quiet village of Cry-sur-Armancon, with its beautiful church, bridge and tree lined river which borders the park. It really is a paradise for both adults and children.

There is a hint of magic as you enter the park through its nineteenth century gates. You could almost spend your whole holiday exploring the grounds which are bordered by the wooded banks of the river Armancon on which you can picnic, fish, row the boat and even cross to your own small island. Added features are the new hard tennis court in the old orchard, the tall avenue of chestnut trees, the walled garden, the ancient stone wood house and pigeonnier, and the Gate House. The heated pool is set in a sun trap on the terrace close to the house. It is all now enclosed, to protect small children, with a clematis covered fence. There is a hot shower and changing space by the pool and a large open covered area with a fridge and barbecue where you can sit and eat. There are plenty of deck chairs, sun-beds and teak garden furniture.

All of this combined with our wonderful cook (optional in low season) and helpful maids/babysitters who live in the adjoining village make La Maison du Chateau the perfect place to have a holiday.
