We, Julian and Alice Blakeney-Edwards, have owned Chateau Neuilly since 2003 and have run it as a self catering holiday business since the purchase. Alice's family come from Normandy and we had been visiting the region for many years before discovering Chateau Neuilly. In fact we had been searching for a property in the region for some time and we were on a 3rd and final visit to another old property near St Mare Eglise with the view of making an offer. Whilst taking our final look round with an expectant estate agent we suddenly got cold feet. It was obvious the estate agent thought we must be time wasters, nonetheless, he did say that he had another old property that had just come on the market and would we want to visit it that morning. So we jumped in the car and headed off to the newly marketed property that was called Le Chateau de Neuilly la Foret. As we approached the Chateau across the marshes we could not believe what a wonderful property it appeared to be. As we entered the courtyard our excitement mounted and within minutes of entering the Chateau and meeting the then current owners we both looked at each other and the unspoken thoughts were, let's make an offer.
The rest is history and over the past 11 years we have strived to improve and enhance the building and the grounds. We will not achieve all that needs doing in our lifetimes but hopefully our 4 sons will continue with the development of the Chateau.
