"I have to say that the food that Delphine cooked for us was absolutely outstanding. I have not stayed anywhere before where every single mouthful without exception was delicious." February 2010

The Cook

 We have a lovely cook whose services are included in the rental (optional in low season). We strongly recommend her. She is exceptionally good and the service is excellent value for a really relaxing carefree holiday. Whether it be for a wonderful buffet lunch, picnic by the river, children's supper or a four course meal in the evening, she does all the cooking and shopping for you during your stay at La Maison du Chateau. We supply you with her suggested menus and shopping lists to help you decide what you would like. You can either discuss it with her direct or we can make all the arrangements for you. Please apply to us for further details.




On arrival the rooms will be ready with beds made up, clean towels and fresh flowers according to season. When appropriate the drawing room log fire will be lit to welcome you. The maids are very flexible and happy to give you extra help with any of the following, which can be discussed with them when you arrive.

With the exception of Peak Season, maid service is optional for smaller parties, but most of our guests choose to employ the services of our maids. They do all the cleaning, bed making, laundry, preparing and clearing away breakfast and assisting the cook, at meal times. See Availability and Prices for costs. Personal laundry, babysitting and child-minding (in English) can all be arranged at extra cost.
