Please excuse our excitement, but we can finally announce we are opening. Along with the Mairie of Saint Hilaire Bonneval, Christian Latouille we opened a lovely bottle of Wine to celebrate the " Change of Use " signing at Château La Briance to accept guests looking to enjoy the area along with its History/ Fabulous Restaurants and many other exciting attractions. With our Cat 4 Alcohol license firmly in our hands also, we can now look forward to welcoming our first official guests after 14 months of renovations.
Chateau La Briance is set in nearly 7 acres, so Social Distancing is of no issue when staying with us. We have bought a non contact thermometer as a precaution and will have hand sanitiser available throughout the Chateau to encourage continued cleanliness and your safety. Of course the final obstacle is the 2 week Quarantine currently in place. But again, we feel safe in accepting bookings from mid July and beyond as this gives plenty of time for any agreement currently being discussed to be finalised. (If you would like to stay with us beforehand, please contact us as this can be arranged).
To say you are all welcome is an understatement, both Helen and I have been alone now since the visit of the
team at the beginning of March and are excited to know we will shortly have company.
Work continues on the website with a booking system our priority, currently being worked on as we speak, so for now would you please email any vacation/business requests to us at email@example.com and we will reply as quickly as possible.
France and other mainland countries in Europe may well be the only chance for Brits to enjoy vacations in 2020, so if your tick list includes an experience in "Castle Life" we would be honoured if you chose us.
Work has started on the Orangery, which we hope to have completed in August or before. We have excellent Caterers in place should you wish to celebrate Weddings/ Anniversaries/ Birthday's etc for up to 80 guests. It's such a magnificent building and we look forward to showing you the progress in the coming weeks.
Thank you all for following us, please like and share us with your friends.
A very excited
Matt and Helen x
