You can see the Chateau in the distance as you travel down the long drive, mind the speed bumps. You turn left into the huge courtyard, and wow! There it is in front of you, an imposing sight. I am sure your welcome from the Dutch owners will be warm and helpful, as ours was. Walking around the large and... More

This is a stunningly beautiful hotel! It is full of antique furniture. Very comfortable bedrooms with excellent bathroom. In a very quiet location! Restaurant is very good though we found the lack of change in menu for the 3 nights we were there was a little limiting. Breakfast was lovely AND included! The swimming pool is not heated sadly, but... More

We stayed here for five days after a less than successful visit to the Dordogne. We needed to arrive three days early as our previous place (see Gavaudun) was so bad we had to leave early. The staff could not have been more accommodating to fit us in and it was a pleasant relief when we arrived and the chateau... More

We had a lovely meal out on the terrace. Unfortunately we had trainee waitress who didn't really seem to want to be there, but the maitre de made up for her negligence. The meal was beautifully cooked and the choice of wines affordable. A lovely setting for our family meal. I can't rate the hotel as we just ate there.

This Logis-listed chateau, south-west of Challans, provided an excellent pre-and post cycle tour base(whilst we left our car here for eight days). The building and its interior have been elegantly and sympathetically restored. We were warmly welcomed initially and then later, on our return-some of the staff expressing incredulity that two relatively old codgers managed a 400km trip à vélo... More

Searching for some where to stay when all the local gites and chambre d'hotes were closed, the hotels non-existant , we finally got a friendly and positive response to our inquiry. A handsome chateau renovated and maintained sensitively in a large park which provides an oasis from the mundane region around. Tizzy modern white sculpture in the garden which spoiled... More

We had a two night stay here in room 20 which is airy and spacious and has a little sitting area tucked in the corner tower. In high summer this room would be hot but there are large windows for air but no a/c. I was a little cold but the central heating fixed that quickly. The bathroom was spacious... More
