Luisa and I celebrated our wedding at Chateau Trichot in May 2014.

Joanna and Bill were extremely helpful from the get go. Arranging our do far from home we had lots of questions, but they gracefully answered our many questions and pointed us in the direction of local businesses.

When we arrived the house was all set up (pool and tennis court too) and the local staff were very helpful and not intrusive. The groundskeeper also helped set up the barn for our big day.

The area can be a trek for guests to get to, but those who made the journey fell in love with the stunning setting. The locals are also friendly and we were able to find everything we needed nearby.

We stayed for 1 week and hired the whole property (cottage too) and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to celebrate there too.

We had a wonderful stay in La Mostonie. The house and grounds are gorgeous and very quiet. The pool and tennis court were much appreciated and well used. Table tennis in the basement was great fun, and we had some needle boule matches on the drive. Comfortable beds, super-powerful shower, tons of hot water, spacious kitchen, dining room and sitting rooms all made for a very comfortable and relaxing week. Would definitely recommend.

I am not sure where to begin!
We were celebrating our 40 th wedding anniversary in this glorious chateau [Lamostonie]. We were a party of 10 young, 20 to 30 year old and 10 very dear friends.
The house was a wonderful size, beautiful hall, large Dinibg room, very comfy able drawing room, music room. So very useful to have two kitchens. They made catering so easy.
Upstairs was all very comfortable with good bathrooms and shower rooms.we also rented the Pigioniere for the young.
Frederique was so helpful and arranged the tables on the terrace and the dining room for 20 of us to eat together.
It was so nice to have a large garden with a beautifully situated swimming pool and tennis court
Excellent drive in the front of the house on which to play Boule.
The outstanding feature for me was that we arrived to a house full of fresh flowers.
Local village 15 minutes away, excellent supermarket and bakery, no need to go to Cahor.
Thank you to Joanna for such patience, friendliness,
answering e mails so quickly. The booking process was so easy. A great web site.

Dear Joanna

What a fantastic time we all had at the Chateau [Lamostonie] and you were so kind with all the info which came in most useful.

Frederique could not have been more amenable and quiet delightful. You are certainly lucky to have such a good charming housekeeper. She looked after our every needs. Mme Francoual was an absolute star and produced different meals every night, she also made the most delicious birthday cake for me. Even if she did not come 2 members of her family came and were equally good and flexible to the timing of the meals. Always beautifully arranged napkins and polished glasses, plus candles lit in the candelabras. They always washed up by hand.

I will certainly recommend anyone the Chateau de Lamostonie as we were so impressed how well it was equipped it especially all the little details....the tap by the tennis court and all the games in the dinning room where they enjoyed playing monopoly on a French board. Comfortable beds and delightful bathrooms, though I have never had such a great big bath to wallow in !

Again many thanks for your helpful e mails which made all the difference to a wonderful and memorable holiday which the family will not forget as everyone got on so well.

Best wishes

Dear Joanna,

This is a short note to thank you very much indeed for our use of Chateau Cardou over the last week.

Everything has worked perfectly.

The swimming pool is a pleasure- mostly warmer in than out - and the tennis court saw lots of keenly fought contests.

The house itself worked very well at all times and fulfilled all our needs.

Due to the “temps ecossais”, we spend more time having meals in the dining room than on the terrace but, perhaps, this was in deference to our three Anglo-Trinidian guests!

Anyway, as we have been completely “Cardo-ed” we have spent almost all our time here.

And I’m sure, if permitted, we would like to return in due course.

Again, many, many thanks.

With our very Best Wishes and Sincere Thanks.

Veuillez accepter mes sentiments meilleurs.

I think that we have stayed all ALL the wonderful chateaux that the S-Bs own and each is so different but just magical and just what you need for a party with your pals.

Very comfortable, good help to aid you if you require it with the catering and a lovely garden, tennis court & pools.

We will return & so should you! Enjoy

Hi Joanna,

We had a wonderful time at Chateau Lamostonie…… Really above everyone´s expectations as we had already had the experience in Tuscany, and some of the family were afraid that this “second part” was not going to be as nice… Everything worked out excellent… Not a single issue: chateau perfect, region perfect, food perfect, wine perfect, We did a lot of tourism in the region: Sarlat, caves, castles, small villages, etc….

Will definitely be recommending your chateau among our acquaintances… maybe you will start receiving more visitors from Chile now…

Dear Joanna

We had a simply wonderful holiday with perfect weather and plenty of swimming and tennis. Chateau Cardou is absolutely stunning and I am sure we will be returning in future. Two of our party had been before and it was on their recommendation that we booked.

Many thanks for providing such a memorable stay.

Best regards

Dear Joanna

We got back yesterday from [Chateau Cardou] France. We absolutely loved it - we simply couldn't have had a more perfect time - sun every day - and everything was just perfect. It's a great combination of elegance and simplicity - beautiful wood floors and everything really good quality, but not a lot of precious objets to break - great for kids to run about in AND for adults to inhabit a more graceful world than London. We compiled a 'Cardou Times' newspaper throughout our stay, with illustrations by Ginnie - who also did a lovely watercolour of the house for your visitors book. Everyone had a great time and wants to go back....

With all thanks again for enabling us to have such a lovely holiday - I hope the start of many.

Hi Joanna

I just wanted to say how much we enjoyed staying at your lovely home in France [Chateau Lamostonie]. The children thought they were living in a castle. I hope Jean-Marc [the chef] didn’t find the party too fussy, we have a few veggies in our party. The teenagers loved staying in the Pigeonier too.

My daughter-in-law was talking about taking it again next September. What is the lead in time to letting you know?

Look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards
