Chère Comtesse, cher Comte,

Le château et son parc sont magnifiques. Après de nombreuses années à l’étranger en Amérique du Nord, pouvoir vivre une expérience au château est un véritable plaisir. Les lacs, les arbres du parc sont très beaux, la chambre avec la vue sur les jardins invite à la rêverie. C’est une véritable évasion. Merci pour l’accueil très chaleureux, nous reviendrons avec grand plaisir lors d’une prochaine saison !

Comme l’amour d’une vie, celui qui ne ressemble à aucun autre, le château d’une vie suspend le temps et vous fait voyager dans sa propre dimension, forte de souvenirs, d’histoire(s) et de frissons. Un énorme merci à Denis et Henry-Louis pour leur accueil, leur gentillesse et leur générosité. Le seul fantôme de ce château est l’extraordinaire tendresse du temps qui passe, l’on pourrait presque le voir danser en souriant devant les peintures immobiles.

Franck et Clara
