The space

The property is a chateau, in other words a castle, built in the early 18th century. Over the last decade it has been completely renovated. The chateau is very comfortable and has 7 bedrooms and 3 bath rooms and accomodates 12 people. There is a cosy kitchen with a French Lacanche oven, a living room and a dining room. There is a large fire place in the living room and wooden pannelings in most rooms. A garage has room for 2 cars and there is a newly built summer kitchen with a large BBQ fire place. There is a small house next to the chateau, which accomodates 4 people and can be rented separately. The walls of this house have inscriptions from WW I and WW II, both from Allied Forces and Germans.

The area is quite and rural. You need a car to get around. There are a number of chateaux in the area to visit. Our property is half an hour from Amiens by car. Amiens is famous for its cathedral and interesting museums. From Amiens it takes 60 minutes by train to get to Paris, Gare Du Nord, so day trips to Paris are easy to make.

A few minutes drive (by car) from the chateau there is the lovely village of Doullens with several supermarkets, boucheries, boulangeries and a few restaurants.

Within half an hour drive you will find the battle fields of World War I, with several interesting museums and memorials. They are really worth a visit. Many Brittish, Americans, Canadians and Australians come to visit the graves of their ancestors who lost their lives during WW I. The house is the place to stay for ANZAC week.

The La Manche beaches are 1 hour and 15 minutes by car.

The house is ideal for a vacation. And it is often used by people who invite their European friends to come over and spend some time together.

The Chateau Neuvillette is just divine. Situated in tree-lined peaceful grounds, but close enough to the village Doullens for all your needs/wants. The Chateau is extremely well appointed - every utensil/cooking appliance catered for. So family friendly our large family were well accommodated - the children were extremely happy. We had BBQ's I. The summer kitchen and tea in the garden -

The chateau was exquisite. Just as indicated in the profile. Neuvillette is a quiet and secluded community. The grounds are huge and, if the weather permits, the outdoor kitchen is great for cooking and spending the evening. Rooms were quiet and comfortable. Washrooms, heat, lighting, cooking facilities and electricity were all very functional. The chateau was a very comfortable place for 10 of us (including two children under 3, for which cribs were provided) to stay for the week while we visited the WW1 battlefields of the Somme and Arras. During our stay, the Wifi was broken and there is very limited mobile reception in the village. Recommend confirming with Cees that the wifi is working prior to visiting. If not, print out maps and plan for limited connectivity. Overall, a great place to stay despite limited connectivity while we were there.

My family and I stayed at chateau neuvillette as we were in france to visit the battlefields and our great uncles war grave in Meaulte. The venue was the perfect place to stay as we were 3 generations and so the chateau gave us space and comfort for the 4 nights. It was very reasonably priced, good space, lots of character and lots of history we just loved it! The downstairs is perfect and although the bedrooms could do with some 'love' by the way of more thicker bigger duvets, throws etc (it was very cold, bad weather while we were there and due to a village wide power cut the Château was cold for a couple of nights until we got the fires roaring to warm it through) We loved the grounds that the chateau sits in and would really like to visit in the summer months when it's warmer and we could use the beautiful outdoor kitchen. Despite the cold and lack of more luxurious beds we just loved the place and we're sad to leave it. A little advice to anyone visiting.....make sure you take fresh provisions with you such as milk butter and bread as there are no shops nearby to just nip to. Also make sure you know how to set a fire.....You'll need it but it's so worth it!

The aerial picture on this listing looks stunning, and arriving at the castle, that impression is not taken away. This is a great and impressive place to stay at. The castle is located in the middle of the country side and you get there after driving through small villages, over narrow country roads and in between the fields. The area around the castle is a little bit hilly and until the last minute you're wondering whether you're on the right track. This means you need a car, definitely. If you want to get around and be able to visit things or go shopping, you need a car to do so. But as quiet as the area around the castle is, in about fifteen minutes you're in a bigger village that has numerous super markets and shops and where you can get everything you need. This castle is old - don't expect everything to be modern. But the living room was very attractive and cozy, the beds comfortable (and you hear nothing at night!) and the kitchen is both modern and very convenient if you want to do your own cooking. What else? We stayed here when it was cold, and this is a very big castle. So it was cold when we arrived. Part of the castle has central heating, other parts are heated with electrical heaters (such as the bedrooms). It was hard to get it heated well enough at first, but turning on the wood stove in the kitchen fixed that within minutes. All in all, this was exactly what we expected. We chose this over a number of alternatives because we thought it would provide something special, would be an unusual and inspiring place to stay at. And that's exactly how it turned out to be. Everyone in our group was awed and we would very much recommend this place to others.

12 of us spent 4 nights, in October, at the beautiful Chateau Neuvillette and I can highly recommend it to others. We had 2 singles and 5 doubles/twins, all the rooms were lovely but the ground floor and 2 first floor rooms were particularly special. Days out were to The Somme, the coast and Amiens but the most enjoyable times were in the evenings when the whole family could eat and drink together around the huge kitchen table with the wood burner lit in the fireplace. Thank you Cees for sharing your beautiful home with us.

There is nothing in the immediate vacinity, so you need to stock up at the supermarket 10km away. The house is lovely. The kitchen and living area are great rooms to live in. We didn't use the formal dining room at all. I was a little disappointed with the layout and the fact that only 2 bedrooms had heating on even though we booked the house for 9 persons. It meant we had to go to bed cold the first night. The double bedroom on the ground floor or ensuite and there are 2 further doubles that share a very neat little bathroom with shower. The remaining rooms are up on another floor - 2 doubles & 2 singles- that have no bathroom. All these guests have to use the bathroom on the 2 floor. The house served us well, was well stocked for cooking and well equipped with towels and linen.

Response from Cees:
There are 3 supermarkets at a distance of 6 km (3.75 miles). Two of them are very big supermarkets with fresh fruit and vegetables, fresh meat, fresh fish and shellfish, poultry, wine, cheese, and everything else you need. All the bedrooms have heating.
