A once in a life time experience to stay in an authentic 600 year old mediaeval castle that is beautifully maintained with beautiful gardens. Also part of the experience is a great French breakfast lovingly served by the hosts.

As we drove up to the chateau we were welcomed by Jean-Marie as soon as we got out of the car. Shown to a large well furnished (with antiques) room. We walked the huge vegetable garden before an aperitif (white wine and violet liqueur for me) and amuse bouches. Marie-Andree served a very good dinner with copious wine - tasty,... More

A beautiful Chateau and extremely well kept. The owners are very attentive and speak excellent English. Our room was large and very clean with a good bathroom. (The bathrooms could probably do with a bit of an upgrade). Tea and coffee making facilities and fridge on the communal landing. A very quiet place with amazing views and lovely gardens. There...

We stayed one night and what a great start to our holiday. We had a medieval bedroom in a turret, Geoffroy du Bec. We dined in with the other guests and Marie Andree's food was excellent. Jean Marie was the perfect host, he met us on arrival and could not have been more friendly and welcoming.

We stayed for one night on our way through France and found this to be absolutely charming, well deserving of all the excellent reviews. We chose the Knights room which was accessed by a spiral staircase which we loved but appreciate for some it may be an issue. The room was lovely as was our evening meal, our welcome drink... More

I would disagree with the previous review. Any building of the age of Chateau de la Motte has a right and expectation to show its age a bit, that is its beauty and what makes it truly special. But in our view that does not extend to the facilities the Chateau offers to visiting guests. It is a most comfortable... More

We visited this area of France around 10th May 2015 and saved our euro for one big night in a Chateau. The bathroom barely functioned, including dim lighting and barely hot water. The room looked tired and unkempt and could do with more suitcase stands and/or storage, it had just the one small wardrobe. As I was feeling the effects... More

Stayed for two nights with kids. Great spot. Truly a great experience. Owners were fantastic and really care about the castle and their guests. Highly recommend if you want to stay in a real castle. Ask about a meal as we hear they can prepare some great meals.

We were treated to one nights stay plus dinner. This was in November 2014 just a couple of nights before they closed for the season. It was just after nightfall that we arrived and as the lights were lit both inside and out it was quite magical. The entrance hall, the stone stairs, the tower, the rooms felt welcoming and... More

This castle is visible for leagues around, has beautiful grounds, and is richly appointed. Jean-Marie and Marie made us feel welcome and at home. Large rooms with luxurious furnishings. Excellent food (much fresh from the garden), wine, and company. We breezed in early evening for one overnight, leaving the next morning, but wished we could have stayed longer. A bit... More
