“A wonderful stay”
Reviewed 24 September 2012

We visited Chateau de Sers in August this year, 2012, and enjoyed a magical week at this special place.

The ancient chateau - surrounded by peaceful woodland - oozes character and history, yet the rooms are large and comfortable, with an inviting lounge and atmospheric dining room.

During the week we visited, South-West France was experiencing a fierce heatwave, and with temperatures nudging 50 degrees, the newly-built pool was a necessity! One of the most attractive and largest outdoor pools I have come across, it's nestled in the grounds, surrounded by plenty of sunloungers and a few hammocks... a wonderful setting in which to relax, sunbathe, read.

Our hosts were unfailingly welcoming and hospitable, and always keen to suggest nearby walks, or bike rides (there are a few bikes for guests to use).

We hope to the chateau, and this beautiful corner of South-West France, next year.

We booked the Chateau de Sers for our wedding in the first weekend of September and it was the best decision we ever made! We booked it online on the strength of the pictures which can be a bit risky but when we checked it out in March we knew we had found somewhere really special!
We had a small wedding with only 25 guests but the setting was perfect.
Planning a wedding abroad can be quite stressful but thanks to Nathalie and Blandine, our charming hosts, the process was relatively easy. They were so helpful throughout the whole experience from arranging the priest to give the blessing to finding us a caterer (who by the way, was amazing! Best food ever!). The church where we had the ceremony is next to the chateau and this was beautiful too with so much character!
There were 15 of us altogether who stayed at the chateau and nobody wanted to leave! Me and my husband stayed in the Red Room which had a lovely view of the garden and a huge four poster bed but all the rooms had quirky details full of character so everyone was happy!
The weekend was so relaxed and we were able to spend quality time with all the family playing in the fabulous pool, playing table tennis and badminton. Self catering was easy because there is a charcuterie and boulangerie in the village and a huge supermarket a short drive away so the day after the wedding we had a barbecue.
I can't rate the chateau highly enough as it was the setting to my dream wedding and it brings tears to my eyes when I think of how happy I was! A weekend was all it took to fall in love with this place but next time we'll stay a whole week to really make the most of it!
Thank you to everyone who helped make our wedding day truly magical!
Katie

We used this as a stop-over hotel for one night on our way down to Spain and we could not fault it at all.

The chateau is lovely, quirky and very relaxed and the hosts are really friendly. The room we had was super - full of character..I sincerely hope that we can one day return to this fantastic and romantic chateau as we were sadly only able to stay one night
