Great hospitality, a genuine castle experience that was interesting, prestigious, relaxing and a bit fanciful. We felt well looked after and left alone, only seeing other guests once in our three day visit.

Welcome guests coming from Australia like you did, is for us a special reward : we feel deeply the connection between our two so far apart countries, we remind the time when people from Europe went there and created what Australia is today.

You have stayed three days with us. That gave time to enjoy better the place and its surroundings -there is so much to be discovered! You could even assist to our summer event on august 18th -a play by Moliere which was given in the Royal Room for 150 persons : a good opportunity to practise your french! Thank you... More

A wonderful hotel with exceptionally friendly hosts. The room was historically accurate with all the modern trimmings you could want. Breakfast was delicious. We would definitely return for a longer visit.

We are indeed permanently looking for the right balance between authenticity and the needs of to day : some modern items among period furniture, top quality sanitary equipments in rooms restaured with noble materials, an independant shower added to the bath when the space makes it possible -two bathrooms out of five, well hidden WIFI equipments to provide free internet...

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.
