We take our guest feedback and experience very seriously. Over the last 20 years we have met some incredible families who continue to return each year. Here’s some of the kind things they have had to say about their family holiday at Château de Gurat.

Here’s a selection from our guestbook

“A wonderful place where you can completely relax, very child-friendly, the owners are very cordial and helpful. The gîtes are of high quality, spacious and beautifully furnished.”

“Everything is taken care of, perfect to enjoy the house, the culture of the area and the relaxing landscape. Quality rest, civic neighbours, and exquisite friendliness from the owners. Children can explore the area on their own and see animals. The pool, excellent. A 10.”

“A fantastic place to stay, particularly for families. It’s really well set up for young families (the kids in our group ranged from 1 – 3 year old’s) and really gives them freedom to run around on their own. The owners are also incredibly helpful and could not have done more to help us re-locate passports we somehow managed to lose en route!! Thanks again guys.”

“Honestly best holiday I have been on with the kids. Perfect for pre-schoolers. Our boys loved it, we loved that they were so entertained with all the toys, I actually got to sunbathe, and read a (bit of) book! Fantastic! We cant wait to go back.”

“We had such a lovely holiday! It was perfect. I  read two books during our stay,  I can’t remember the last time that happened!. Our three girls enjoyed the place so much as well. The play area, the swimming pool, the sand pit, the animals…. We all enjoyed the lovely food, the pizza night and wine tasting night. I would recommend this place to anyone.”

“Great place – lovely stylish and spacious gîtes – with loads of outside space for the kids to run around. Our five year old went off with her new friends to the trampoline, feed the goats, terrorise the guinea pigs, etc, and we could be completely happy that they were all safe and having fun even when out of eyesight. Lovely pool area too.”

“We have visited as a family for the last 4 years and could not imagine a better place in France to spend our holiday. A hidden gem in rural countryside. The cottages at Gurat offer everything we could possibly need whilst enabling us to all unwind and relax. The children are extremely well catered for, with plenty of space to play and explore in a safe family friendly environment. The pool is a particular favourite! Le Coin Fleuri is a beautiful, comfortable living space with gorgeous original features. It also provides a little extra privacy and has a lovely terraced area for al fresco dining. It is finished to an exceptional standard and has everything you could possibly need for a care free (and stress free!) holiday…”

We had a wonderful week at Château de Gurat, thank you very much for your hospitality! The facilities were excellent for our almost three year old and baby, and the gîtes were of a very high quality with all the baby friendly extras.”

“The Château was amazing, our gîte was immaculately clean, the owners are so friendly and very supportive to families. The wine tasting and pizza nights are wonderful with no need for a babysitter, but we did also have a night out with a babysitter, which was a real treat”

We had a fabulous week, the owners were great and the children had everything they could have wanted within the grounds, such an amazing place to have a first holiday as a family! Thank you.”

“Great spot for a relaxing family holiday. Beautiful grounds. Really well set up for kids even very young children. Lovely big deep and clean pool. Adult evenings are a wonderful respite. Adult company without even leaving the premises! I would highly recommend” Ruth M

Brilliant place! We stayed here for a week with our two sons, they both didn’t want to go home and have asked to go back since we got home. The owners look after you from start to finish. Great home cooked meals if you want to just stay in and chill out. There’s lots of stuff to keep the kids occupied around the château grounds. The local area is filled with stunning little towns and villages.” Daniel H

“Beautiful and friendly place for a young family holiday.” Graham N

Thoroughly enjoyed our time in Gurat, the owners were wonderful hosts and have created a beautiful environment whilst preserving the original character of the buildings. The children were free to explore and enjoy the surrounding area in a child friendly environment. If you are a lover of Pizza then you will not be disappointed when the oven is fired up, if they did takeaway in England, I would be a regular!” Tim F

“Super Family Holiday! Château de Gurat is in a great location, surrounded by rolling landscapes and within easy reach of a great range of activities. Jardin de Rose provides family friendly accommodation, surrounded by a stunning private garden. The pool, play barn, animals and games, all made for a great holiday. Very charming and thoughtful hosts, we’ll be back!”

“We first visited Château de Gurat in July 2014, staying in L’Etable, for only a week. We were smitten within the first few hours. The grounds and facilities are perfect for young families, all Gîtes are really tastefully decorated. The Bergerie is ideal for the kids to congregate and play in, and the social activities like pizza night and wine tasting are great ways to get to know the other families and children. There is plenty of room around the communal pool, and it’s always clean and tidy. The owners are wonderful hosts – always around if needed but not intrusive. Wine o’clock at the sandpit in the evenings as the sun sets is lovely!”
