Ce qu'ils en pensent | What they think

Lovely walks around the grounds, definitely recommended

We received a very warm welcome from Marty when we arrived at short notice during our "Sawdays Road Trip" from Somerset to Italy. Chateau de Vaulx is a fabulous building that has undergone some serious renovations in recent years. Being a building geek I was fascinated by Marty's account of the works and history of his home. We enjoyed and a delicious breakfast - top service, definitely recommended.

Expansive and spectacularly memorable

"Another magical visit. We arrived in pouring rain, but what better consolation than to be welcomed by our warm-hearted host, Marty, and invited to cosy up by an enormous roaring fire before being served a candle-lit dinner in the gorgeous drawing room? Next day the sun came out and we were able to marvel at the wildflower meadows cascading down from the avenue of limes

overlooking the rolling charolais landscape. Our fellow-guests that evening were a delightful young couple who became engaged on the terrace, and I can think of no more perfect little piece of heaven in which to receive a proposal! Thanks Rosie. What an amazing find! We were thrilled by our visit and long to return.

Just before we arrived we had a slight accident involving a local motorist and - our French not being quite up to the occasion - we asked her to accompany us to the chateau to get help in translation. Marty was quite wonderful, smoothing ruffled feathers and charming everyone with so much warmth, kindness and impish humour that we all relaxed, and instead of it spoiling our holiday we felt so looked after that we look back on our visit as a highlight of our trip. Everything about Marty and the chateau is expansive and spectacularly memorable, and the love and flair with which he and Thierry have restored, decorated and furnished their home is heart-warming, as is the generosity with which they share it. The far-reaching views from their hill-top avenue are glorious: it would be very tempting to return and see their wonderful garden and grounds in all the different seasons. Add to that a charming landscape dotted with mellow old villages and Romanesque churches, grazed by charolais cattle and alive with birdsong: what more could you ask for?"

Vaulx le détour

Ah ! Quelles délicieuses retrouvailles...Nous avons connu Marty en 2003 au chateau Lambert à Chénas. En 2008, nous avons découvert Vaulx, quelle claque ! Et là, en ce début mai 2013, nous avons retrouvé notre Marty, toujours aussi charmant, avenant et surtout la tête pleine de projets. Quelle pêche ! C'est là son secret, je crois. Une piscine pour bientôt, un gîte digne d'un prince
disponible sous peu, et toujours cette vue sublime sur le Brionnais, cette déco authentique, chinée avec soin, raffinée avec cette cuisine simple et délicate...bref on est chez un vieil ami, qui vous reçoit comme si on l'avait quitté la veille.
