We booked for one night and stayed for three as it was such a restful, beautiful spot with great hosts and central to some interesting towns and sites. Very spacious quarters within the castle - huge bed lounge room, library and bathroom. Beautiful grounds and gardens. Meals are excellent. Added bonus - no TV

Stayed for two nights at this beautiful Chateau. Location magical and room superb with wonderful views over the countryside especially from the "Quirky" toilet. Our hosts were very welcoming and shared many stories about history of their splendid home. We reserved dinner on both evenings before which Jean-Marie shared and explained the numerous aperitifs available for us to sample. Marie-Andree... More

As part of our "Tour the France" we stayed for three nights in chateau de la Motte. Three wonderful nights, the best of our tour! The rooms are great; a lot of space, incredibly thick walls and beautiful four-poster beds! The food was fantastic; the breakfasts were great, the dinners even better. We can specially recommend the duck fillet! Last... More

So glad we chose to stay at this gorgeous chateau on the way down south. It really is amazing and the hosts are fantastic too; so interesting, friendly & kind. it's a real shame that we arrived late as we could smell the delicious food that was being served to the other guests. Next time we'll set off a little... More

A bit of luxury for the last night of our motorbike tour of the Pyrenees! Chateau looks very spectacular as you approach from the road. Tight turn into a gravel driveway would be a breeze for cars but I'm a bit of a wuss on my motorbike on gravel so I was a little stranded until hubby came to my... More

We stayed over for one night on our way from Amsterdam to Biarritz. It was perfect. It is not just a hotel, its a real castle, where people live in, with 5 rooms for guests. Actually you're lodging in with the castle owner. Dinner is table d'hôte which means that you'll dine next to the other guests. If you wanne... More

This is a beautifully restored Chateau with... More

We stayed at the Chateau on our way to Spain. I discovered it on Tripadvisor and it looked most attractive. It more than exceeded our expectations. Our hosts Marie-Andree and Jean-Marie could not be more charming and welcoming, the Chateau has been returned to its former glory thanks to their dedication and hard work but incorporates all the requirement to...

Beautiful castle,warm welcome and attentive hosting throughout our stay. Jean-Marie is a font of interesting information concerning his historic home. Our room was large, thoughtfully decorated and comfortable. Jean-Marie's wife Marie-Andree and their daughter provided us with an excellent 4 course meal, much of which was sourced from the castle's beautiful garden. All in all a great experience and very...
