A warm thank you to all our visitors from the world who took the time to write us a mail, or leave a word in our golden books. This trace of their stay with us in Burgundy will stay in our memories and their satisfaction is warming up our hearts.
Sometimes it was not easy or possible for me to understand the words left by hand writing in our golden books and I have not been able to copy words left in other languages than English or French. So I would like to tell the authors to excuse me for this.
You have done an amazing job on the property, I think everyone could appreciate the effort and care that has gone into the restoration.
The bedrooms were all great, some really nice unique touches with the bathrooms in the turret rooms, curtains were nice and thick ensuring good night's rest. The beds were very comfortable as well as the bedding. The communal dining and sitting areas didn't get much use, but that's because we ate outside most days on the stunning patio. The kitchen was incredibly well thought out (and stylish), I'll be making sure I have two dishwashers in my future home! The only niggle would be maybe more large wine glasses. But that's being picky. The addition of kids plates and cutlery were very useful.
The poker room, gym, sauna and pool room all saw plenty of action, a game of poker by a roaring fire was a highlight! A few people took the bikes out for a few day trips (again baby seats and helmets were great additions). Mini golf and table tennis enjoyed by all as well.
The pool area and patio seating were sublime, and we probably spent 80% of our time there! Was lovely to get all the babies in the water throughout the week. As well as a couple of games of volleyball (we left the net in a bag), a ball hand pump would be a good addition, we couldn't find any in the supermarket. Finally, a shout to chef Raphael and Dominque for a fantastic meal and some great massages. The Mercury wine in the chiller was lovely as well as the fantastic bottles that were waiting for us!
Chers Sylvia & Christophe,
C’est avec beaucoup de regret que nous quittons votre magnifique Château de Lans. Nous avons passé une semaine fantastique et inoubliable dans une ambiance chaleureuse et exceptionnelle grâce à cet endroit spacieux aménagé avec tant de goût où toutes les chambres ont leur propre charme.
9 adultes et 6 enfants (agés de 6 ans à 11 mois) ont passé des journées formidables dans la piscine, dans le parc à jouer au foot, au ping-pong, sur le trampoline, les balançoires, dans le salon, la salle à manger. Par beau temps le barbecue, et grâce aux beaux vélos chacun a pu faire des balades dans les alentours.
Nous vous remercions infiniment de votre hospitalité, et qui sait, reviendrons nous un jour…
Thank you Mike & Irene for organizing such a memorable few days here at Villa Saunières. We have enjoyed meeting up with old friends again. The wine tasting "chez Christophe" was most informative. Toma's diner was simply superb !
Villa Saunières superbe, accueil sympa et vacances géniales. Merci d'avoir fait le maximum pour nous accueillir cette semaine. Il ne nous reste plus qu'à nous mettre d'accord pour réserver une semaine au Château de Lans ou Mercurey. Merci beaucoup pour la dégustation.
Sylvia & Christophe. I had a wonderful week with my family ay this beautiful château! Thank you for all the detail you have put into making this such a great experience! The grounds are so beautiful and this memory will last a lifetime! Blessings to you and your family.
Lovely house, especially the comfy bedrooms and the superb pool, trampoline and other play facilities. We particularly enjoyed the massage and facials that Julie the beautician gave us on Tuesday. Also the wine tasting evening with François was great fun (the combination of good wine, François's english and our french kept everyone very happy !!).
Beaune is a good day out too. Many thanks for a good family holiday.
This has been a terrific week...plenty of good food, good wine, beautiful scenery. The route des grands crus is a fabulous way to spend a day. Cheers !
