Sophie Clanin

Sophie is the official Coton de Tulear Ambassador to the Chateau du Sureau!

Congratulations to the Chateau du Sureau!


 The Chateau is part of the Relais & Chateaux group of fine luxury resorts/hotels. 
Several years ago we held a Simply Grand Puppy Reunion at the Chateau, which was one of the most memorable experiences of our lives. The Chateau and their 5-star Elderberry House Restaurant were closed to the public for our event, and about 15 of our puppy families and their Cotons spent several days relaxing and dining at the Chateau. Their chef created special meals for the Cotons, and the Cotons joined us at breakfast and dinner. We were pampered at their luxurious spa, & visited Yosemite National Park. 

It is impossible to describe the level of hospitality and impeccable service offered at the Chateau, it is something you have to experience to believe. In addition to the stellar accomodations & restaurant, their spa is one of the top rated in the world. So whenever you have the opportunity, please try to visit Sophie & Erna & René at the Chateau, and be sure to take along your Coton! You will be in for a very special treat!
