“A picture-perfect chateau in the Gascon countryside with cool contemporary interiors, sweeping grounds and 12 boudoir bedrooms (sleeps 26-34)”
With a total of 12 bedrooms - 8 ensuite doubles (4 can be made up as twins), 2 triples and 3 quadruples - divided between the main house and a separate wing, the chateau can accommodate between 26-34 guests.
Each of the bedrooms has been individually styled with gorgeous handprinted wallpapers, grand beds, crisp linens and elegant antique and designer pieces sourced from New York, France and London. Naturally these are all ensuite and feature state-of-the-art showers and snuggly towels. In fact, the only problem will be deciding which room to keep for yourself.
In the main chateau, there are 2 double or twin bedrooms downstairs (Red and Blue) and 3 doubles upstairs: Nutmeg, Black and White, and Green. Also on the first floor are Grey and Lily, 2 of the quadruple bedrooms, each would work well for a family (1 double bed and 2 singles) or a group of children or friends (4 single beds). Brook and Monkey are the 2 triple rooms in the main house, but only Monkey can be made up with 3 single beds; these 2 rooms can also interconnect to create a sizable family suite.
In the separate wing of the chateau are 3 further smaller ensuite doubles and the third quadruple (also an ensuite).
All the rooms are cosy in winter and cool and airy in summer, but fans are provided should it be a scorcher. Many of the ensuite bathrooms are hidden away in the turrets, so you may find yourself showering in a funky cylindrical wet room (only 1 of the rooms has bath). Enticing local toiletries are provided, along with bales of thick cotton towels.
If you choose the daily help option, you will have someone to not only clean, tidy up and make the beds but also bring in fresh baguettes and croissants each morning.
The great thing about Lartigolle is that you can choose to self-cater or be catered for, or a mix of the two. There are 3 levels available:
Even sulky teenagers who hate family holidays will find something to love here. If you're booking the whole place out, we'll assume that you're a mixture of families or a large extended family and tell you straight out that it's ideal. We particularly love the children's dorm, where they all have space to hang out plus a table football table to play on, and with games rooms and plenty of room outside to play in plus horse riding, quad biking, tree top adventure parks and waterparks nearby, you won't hear the words 'I'm bored' ringing in your ears all week.
Teens (over 12)
All the rooms are well sized and will fit an extra bed. There's are 2 quadruple bedrooms (Grey and Lily), each with a double and 2 twin beds, or 4 single beds - so they could work for a family or perhaps a group of 4 children. There are also 2 triple rooms (Brook and Monkey), which guests can use separately or interconnect - both have a double bed and 1 single, but Monkey can also be made up with 3 singles.
Can be arranged
You can borrow a baby monitor, but be sure to check the coverage as it doesn't extend to the whole property
Remember baby and child equipment may be limited or need pre-booking
Self cater (there's a microwave and blender), book in the personal chef treatment or go half board (which costs a little extra per little head). Special menus can be made up and an early tea can be served
There are a few places with steps and small drops that children are not encouraged to go near
