Amanda recommended a food service from VincenTraiteur of Lumbres. This service provided 3-course evening meals of fine French cuisine cooked offsite and delivered to the kitchen. It was remarkable value at €15 per head per meal and can be thoroughly recommended.
We booked the chateau for a silver wedding celebration weekend with a group of friends. Amanda was so helpful throughout the booking process… We booked Olivier to cook a dinner on the Saturday night — his coq au vin and dauphinoise potatoes were stunning!
The quality of bed linen, pillows and duvets is top, top and exactly what you would buy for yourself rather than skimping on furnishing a "rental property"… Amanda and Dan have created something pretty unique. Really cannot recommend Chateau d'Hallines enough.
What a beautiful venue and so easily accessible from the Eurostar. We used the Chateau as a base for our training weekend and could not think of anywhere more suitable.
I stayed at the Chateau d'Hallines for a birthday party with friends. Beautifully maintained and rich in character it is also equipped for every form of relaxation. The grounds are delightful, the facilities offer everything you need… I cannot recommend it too highly.
It was more than anything we were expecting and made an enormous contribution to the success of our celebrations. We never ceased to be amazed at the attention to detail that you put into the renovation and which you and your helpers put into making everything work smoothly.
We had a really nice stay at the Big Château for my sister's wedding. It is a wonderful place. I will recommended it to everybody who is searching for a magical stay in the North of France!
Big Chateau delivers. Beautiful property that is true to its advertising. Kitchen is well stocked which we appreciated as we enjoyed cooking and relaxing at the castle more than anything on our trip. Even used the marvellous new tennis court. Great location for large group.
The owners were so helpful in the run-up to our arrival and all our expectations were exceeded as we enjoyed the beautiful surroundings, fantastic amenities and the pleasure of authentic French cooking from recommended caterers… We look forward to returning!!
The place is absolutely stunning and spotless everywhere you look, there's so much to do, with something for anyone, and most of all the hosts were extremely welcoming and such nice people. I do not have a bad word to say about the place, I truly had an amazing stay!
All mod-cons are provided but the chateau retains its character. A fantastic weekend in a wonderfully luxurious, friendly place. I hope to visit again!
Simply exquisite. Chateau Hallines is beautiful but comfortable, chic but homely, just absolutely perfect for a French getaway. They have everything you need from the basic essentials to an incredible trampoline room and roaring open fires. I would go back in a heartbeat.
Hi-spec beautiful mansion house, great for families. Owners very helpful. I stayed with my daughter as part of an extended-family holiday. Everything you need is onsite and the WiFi is very good. After two weeks there, I didn't want to leave. Thanks to Amanda and Dan.
The tennis courts are great and all the equipment you could need is provided. The hosts were very welcoming and recommend the most amazing chefs. The games room and trampoline room were great too!! I was blown away by the place and would strongly recommend it to anyone.
I'm highly recommending for anyone who would like to experience staying in a tastefully decorated place, hosting a big group of people. Thank you Amanda, we will certainly come again.
This is the chateau of dreams! We rented with four other families and both adults and children alike had a truly magical time. The children took over the top floor with trampoline and TV room and didn't want to leave the chateau at all… We would love to stay again.
Definitely recommend Big Chateau! Had a lovely time here — every room is beautiful and there are lots of things to do. The hosts are wonderful and took care of our every need!
Chateau d'Hallines is by far the most exquisite place I have ever stayed at. Every bedroom and bathroom is beautiful, stylish and wonderfully presented. The reception rooms are breathtaking and that is just the start… The only downside is that I had to go home again.
I spent a lot of time on the (very good) tennis court and the (annoying unforgiving) pool table. I enjoyed the indoor trampoline far too much, and the bright orange bikes are in good nick and offer a great way to explore the area. Already thinking of an excuse to go back.
Truly a magical place… We never had a dull moment in the weekend we spent here, there was plenty on offer and the hosts were amazing! Will definitely come again if I can.
WE HOPE YOU LIKE WHAT YOU SEE – ALL THAT’S MISSING IS YOU!
