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.
