This is a beautiful old Château, steeped in history and carefully restored. M & Mme Penicaud are charming hosts; they are very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable about the Château and surrounding area.

We've had WOW experience at the Chateaux - proudly owned by a family that loves their home and make you feel the same way. We came late and the owner came out to meet us, showed us our rooms and gave a told a few words about the history. You would stay in 12th century castle once owned by the... More

Bed and Breakfast is correct, but is a totally inadequate description of this wonderful place. We arrived late afternoon under some very black clouds, and our hostess for the night, Madame Penicaud, suggested that we quickly take the last guided tour of the day, which was just for us before the deluge. Well the deluge came as our tour started,... More

This beautifully restored castle has a fascinating history that the owner is happy to share in a guided tour. Our room was comfortable and well equipped and we spent 2 very peaceful nights there. Breakfast was served (additional charge) in a pretty room, with guests sharing large farmhouse style tables. We ate well in the village (walking distance) but the... More

Certainly we enjoyed our two night stay at this chateau. Our room was large and comfortable and there were nice touches like fresh flowers in our room and a coffee machine in the guests lounge. The breakfast was a well judged affair with particularly good jams and bread. The utter quiet and calm at night made for a very restful... More

Sometimes you have to read between the lines to get the real impression of a place, but believe the reviews. This is a truly memorable place, the one that in ten years time you will remember staying in. Our room was the Suite de Roi Charles, with a separate room for our daugther. The rooms are beautifully restored and a... More

We were here for one night during a driving trip across France. I wish we could have stayed longer! We visited many nice places during the trip (more than one château), but Château de Saint Saturnin was my favorite. Our room, "Paul et Virginie" was the least expensive option but still very spacious and beautiful, with a canopied bed and... More

The castle is impressive and restored with an authentic touch. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and filled with historical decor. The rooms are also redone to contain all the modern amenities one expects from a 5 star hotel.
