We spent one night here en route through the area. We had pre-booked the evening meal. The host Jean Pierre is warm and welcoming and Bruno's cooking is superb.. We had our evening meal and breakfast with other guests and had great fun conversing in different languages. John Pierre was attentive at all times and anxious that everyone was happy.... More

We stayed one night at August and everything went well. The rooms are nice and clean and the dinner in the evening was served well at dining hall. The landscape and park are worth of visit. At the morning we got good breakfast with fresh coffee.

We very much enjoyed our stay at this château. Very welcoming host and beautiful château and grounds bordering the Marne river. Delicious French breakfast in a gorgeous room. Very elegant rooms all around. Wished we had had more time to spend in their jardins!

My daughter is a Major in the Marine Corps stationed in Stuttgart, Germany, and we had the great honor and privilege to travel with her and her family to Belleau Woods for the Memorial Ceremony on May 25th. She booked this chateau for all of us, and we just can't say enough about our wonderful stay. Jean Pierre went above... More

The chateau is beautiful with a view of the Marne river, and many Champagne vineyards nearby. There is a very pretty garden behind the chateau leading to the river. The owner is very friendly and helpful. He served us a delicious and plentiful dinner, followed by a continental breakfast the next morning. All high quality produce. The rooms are charming,...

We stayed twice recently, with our dog. The house is on the River Marne - great for a walk, and has its own large garden. The house itself was full of antiques and interesting.We had the Jasmine room with the hammam ( great after driving from London, and the return from south of France). The room was large and comfortable.... More

We had a nice time staying here and found the owners to be very kind. We stayed in the large room up top (family room) which was very comfortable, albeit it was hot that night, with a great shower. They allowed us to have the dog (large gentle lab) who was able to go for a swim in the river... More

We stayed at the Chateau with friends whilst visiting the Champagne region. We booked the Suite Roseraie which was great for 2 x couples with 2 double rooms and shower rooms (shared WC) and a small lounge area. Jean Pierre and Bruno were very welcoming and we felt right at home at their lovely Chateau. Breakfast was included and the... More

My work colleague recommended this place to us and it was really lovely. We stayed there for three days in August 2013. A bit of confusion at the start, we had arranged to be collected at the train station by Bruno (who speaks English) but when we arrived Bruno was out and John Pierre (who speaks less English) answered the...

We spent three nights here at the end of May whilst touring the Champagne region. Jean Pierre was an excellent host, attentive but not obtrusive. The Chateau is set in beautiful gardens which lead down to the Marne alongside which there is a lovely river walk. Dinner was a really enjoyable experience, pre dinner aperitif of local champagne and home... More
