Family Holidays at ‘Au Château’

At ‘Au Château’ we set out to share our house and garden with you and your children. With two young children of our own, we understand the importance of keeping children safely occupied in an environment away from home allowing you to relax and enjoy your holiday.

You and your children can swim in the pool, play on the swings and slides in the play area, roam the orchards or explore the sights and smells of our herb garden.

If you go out and about there are riverside cycle paths, water parks and amusement parks all within easy reach.

When you all need a rest from the excitement, or the children just need to relax for a while, there are crayons, books, board games or TVs with DVD players.

Kristine and Mershoen

You and your children can meet and enjoy the company of Ebony our friendly house cat, Möhrchen and Nina the dwarf rabbits and Felix the tri-coloured guinea pig.

We also have 3 French hens who roam the garden and children are welcome to come egg collecting and help feed the hens in the morning.
