This is a wonderful and unique place to stay. The building is very historic and interesting. The room we had was beautiful, comfortable and had everything we needed. The sheets and towels were top quality. The bathroom in the tower was fabulous! The guest lounge was very inviting, full of books and other interesting things to look at. The hosts... More

We had just reopened and finished to put back everything in order for our guests after all our winter improvement works. It is good to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. Your room -Cardinal- has such an amazing bathroom in the adjacent tower where we could create a walk in shower at the place of the ancient latrines and... More

We were on our way from Avignon to Limoges... We did not one to stay in a city like Clermont-Ferrand. Instead of that we searched for somewhere more authentique and we crossed this very special chateau which used to blog to the family of Catherine de Medicis...

We are about to reopen after the winter closure and your positive feed back gives us even more energy to welcome new guests or already known ones as we get more and more. We have worked hard however during this break for maintenance and for preparing new steps of our restauration programs. This year will be a very special year... More

We spent 3 nights at the Château Royal de Saint-Saturnin on our way from Saint Émilion to Saumur. It was late in the afternoon when we finally arrived at the gates of the Château. Our GPS and the instructions from our host Emmanuel made the Château easy to find, but the castle sits so large on top of the hill... More

Your suggestions are very much welcomed and will help us to keep improving. Sometime it is quite a true cahllenge to blend authenticity and comfort, but that's our target... Be sure we really enjoy being your home-from-home. That's the way we like to be treated abroad. We hope to welcome you again. More

We recently spent 3 nights here during our first trip to the Auvergne. From the minute you drive up to the castle gates to the final farewell, you are treated like royalty by M. & Mme. Penicaud. We stayed in a room in the castle's tower. As advertised, it is reached only by stairs, but we felt it added to... More

In this wonderful chateau, we had a suite with extensive sitting room and bathroom downstairs, bedroom and toilet with washbasin upstairs, and it was extremely opulent. Even at 250 euros (including breakfast) it seemed good value. Breakfast was very good, including excellent croissants, a nice selection of bread and preserves, green tea and good coffee, and a fine selection of... More

The reviews and website entice and excite, but scarcely prepare one for the breathtaking reality of this very special establishment. The essentials - comfort, cleanliness, hospitality, tranquility and value - are mostly excellent, added to which are large measures of consideration, organisation and character, and superb breakfasts. The proprietors were knowledgeable and helpful. There was a slight trace of coldness... More

This year is very special since we have been welcoming for the first time several guests from New Zeland. We have been to Australia but not yet to that lovely country and it is very interesting to hear about it from local people! Meeting people from everywhere simply helps thinking different. We thank you for that. More

Our double room Cardinal stays on the second floor but one uses an internal staircase to reach the bathroom which stays in a tower and occupies its whole third floor.

Dear guests, It is an honnor for us to share this castle with our visitors, even more with foreigners, since we consider it as a kind of "national treasure" we are simply in charge of and we should pass it on to next generations. Although close to the motorway -only 7 km- one's feels very much off the road and... More
