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

Staying here, with the warmth and hospitality of the owners makes one feel like royalty indeed. We arrived later than expected but still in time to enjoy the beautiful views and gardens and poke around the the castle corners. A true delight. Jacques and Sharon were helpful with suggestions, historical information and for sharing their visiting family. Although it was... More

I need another star level! My wife and I have traveled all over Europe (we have lived in Germany and England) and this is one of our favorite places ever. We normally prefer small, private- home B&B's because you get that personal touch, but we have done a few castle hotels over the years. They're usually impersonal hotels, but it's... More

At the end of our trip to Paris and south of France (villages of Provence and sea coast of Cassis), we decided to spend 3 nights in the Haute Alps region. We found this amazing bed and breakfast place near Embron, a real 1000 plus year old Chateau, owned and run by a very nice couple (Jacques and Sharon, she... More

I stayed with my 95 year old father for a couple of days at this fabulous place and we can recommend it without any hesitation (even though we would have to use the annexe if we come with our little dachshund). The restoration is done with taste and skills (& undoubtably a substantial financing) and is reason enough to come.... More

A very good friend urged us to come here. She said it was an amazing experience AND she was right. From the first moment that we arrived to the last one when we reluctantly left, it was wonderful. Upon arrival we were invited into the breakfast room and offered drinks. We were given our choice of rooms and chose a... More

This was a stopover between Annecy and Nice on our road trip through France. We were offered drinks right away and given a tour of the available rooms. Three couples arrived at once and were all able to choose rooms. The chateau is beautifully restored and has modern bathrooms. Our room was the tower room, and was actually a suite... More

The castle is romantic, of course, but also very comfortable and ready for 21st century guests. The hosts, Sharon and Jacque, could not be more helpful. Private tour of the renovated castle, reservations at different romantic dinner spots every night, excellent suggestions of hiking and tourist activities, yummy and extensive breakfasts, cool refreshing afternoon drinks in the garden, wonderful conversation....

We were traveling with our French friends who had stayed here once before. It was wonderful! We were met by the owners, Jacques and Sharon, and immediately offered a glass of wine. We were given a tour of all the rooms, and given a history of the castle and the restoration. My husband and I chose the L'Illustre Inconnu room... More
