ST VALERY, Dom. du Château de Drancourt

Northern France

Selected as this Castels site set in the grounds and outbuildings of an attractive brick-built château offers plenty of activities with easy access to the Marquenterre wildlife sanctuary and the Somme battlefields. The abundance of trees and flowering shrubs gives the site a welcoming feel. The Marquenterre wildlife sanctuary famous for its migrating birds is nearby. There are plenty of activities on offer for the children and there can be a bustling atmosphere in the high season. The quality of services can be a bit erratic at busy times, but overall it is well maintained and has a spacious feel.
