Jacques and Sharon are warm welcoming hosts. The castle is both grand and charming. The location is stunning. We enjoyed hiking in the area as well as the local food. We also enjoyed relaxing in the garden and in our beautiful tower room. We were impressed with the way Sharon and Jacques restored this 1,000 year old castle. Attention was... More

On a motorcycle tour with Adriatic Moto Tours, we stayed at Picomtal. The place is amazing, with a history that stretches back centuries. The Peureux family have done a wonderful job of restoration, (ask to see the short film showing the process, or look it up on their website), both of the building and the surrounding grounds. The rooms are... More

This looks like and feels like a 'fairytale castle'. Set in a beautiful valley in the area near Embrun, the chateau itself is beautiful to look at. Inside it is amazing and when you add the hosts, it is just a delight. All being well, we will be back later this year at some point. Superb.

We spent two nights at the Chateau de Picomtal, and regretted having to leave so soon. The property dates back to the 11th century, and it has been meticulously restored by the present owners, Susan and Jacques. Do not forget to see the short video documenting the restoration - really impressive. The place is beautifully decorated with period furniture, paintings... More

A beautifully restored castle with a history dating back a thousand years, redecorated by the owners, with love and diligence, and with an atmosphere that takes you out of yournormal context somehow - wonderfull stay, can only recommend it. Stunning views and a beautiful garden as well as the relaxed and yet superattentive reception made it perfect.

a family of 3 , we stayed for 6 nights in AUGUST 2014. The owners of the castle are most charming and go out of their way to make visitors feel at home. We certainly enjoyed all aspects of our stay and must sincerely admit - money well spent! Thank you guys and we will certainly be back. Skoryk family

We spent only 1 night in the castel but I'da rather stayed for longer to endulge in one of the most loveliest garden ever. Rooms are spacious as some city apartment and everything reminds you of the love and investment this brave family has put in restoring the castel. The adventure of their life is told by an interesting documentary... More

If you want to live like royalty for a day or two this is the place to do it. The work Jacques & Sharon have put into this restoration is exceptional and they are happy to share it with you in a modest and friendly fashion. Our room was huge and exquisitely decorated in furniture of the period. Everything was... More
