reading the reviews, I note the divergence between very good and very poor reviews. I wonder if the bad ones are mainly from Americans? I would see that their expectations would be let down by the facilities of a 13th century chateau - hence not all mod cons, and by the 'meagre' quantities of food compared to the giant (for... More

I was very impressed by this hotel. There is a specific flair and you feel history and hospitality everywhere. The historic building is highlighted by nice rooms and an exquisite restaurant. I was there for a business trip but recommend it for a nice and relaxing stay, as well.

After a long drive we arrived for an overnight stop at another local establishment that had no recollection of our reservation and eventually, after some persuasion at least had the decency to phone the Chateau and reserve a room for us. Whilst more expensive than our initial choice it was virtually faultless. The staff members were fantastic: entertaining and jovial... More

We stayed at this property only 1 night, and in a very specific context: some friends had offered us a "WONDERBOX" voucher, for a free night in Prestige room + diner and breakfast. So most of our stay was pre-paid, which made me suspicious about the kind of welcoming we would get, being not the "regular", full-paying guests. To my... More

Beautiful place; Absolutely disgraceful service. Or it would be disgraceful if there was any!!!! This is meant to be a luxury hotel??? Booked into hotel for two nights on our way home after touring Italian lakes. The idea was to have a relaxing day by the pool & soak up the chateau's atmosphere. Arrived about 7pm due to traffic delays.... More

We had originally chosen this venue for its beautiful unique location and friendly event planner. Unfortunately, six months before the event, we received news that one of the rooms that came with our package had been turned into a banqueting kitchen and that our event planner had quit. The venue did not offer anything in compensation for these changes. We... More

We booked into this wonderful looking Chateau on our way across France. We were looking forward to a relaxing stay and good food. We arrived to very stuffy staff it might have been that we were British and didn't speak much French, but the attitude was not good. We were shown to our room which was the middle cost room... More

If you get the chance to go to this beautiful hotel then please do!!! Beautiful setting - need a satnav to get to it but in a quiet location. Very friendly staff and hotel is stunning. Room was quite small but thats because you are staying in an old building. We stayed in the standard Isabelle room for 1 night.... More

My son, wife, granddaughter, husband and myself stayed at this establishment for one night on our holiday in France. We both had a room each, very small rooms, comfortable beds and nice bathroom. It was definitely an experience. The room prices were around 90 euros each, which was very reasonable. We had a 7 course meal in the dining room,... More

It is a castle transformed in hotel, on top of a hill. Not so easy to find but position is dominating the surroundings. Views are fantastic, swimming pool and environment charming. Rooms are furnitured old style with baldachin bed and charming ancient wardrobes. Being an ex-castle in order to maintain its charme the finishing is rustic, country. All rooms are... More
