Since the first minuted we arrived to this chateau, we felt welcome and delighted. Claude and Leyla are amazing hosts, and they were very good recomending what to do in the area. Every detail of the service was perfect. The Chateau is beautiful and is decorated with a wonderful taste, and beautiful antiques. The grounds are also beautifull. This place... More

From the first moment that we were greeted by Leyla we felt welcomed and delighted to have arrived. This was at the end of a 2 week trip and we were thrilled with the authenticity and appealing eclectic blend of the chateau. Claude Hubert was so welcoming and we were thrilled to spend our last two nights of the vacation... More

Lovely, lovely, lovely. Can't fault this place at all! Beautiful accommodation, food and service. My family ranged from age 13 to 83 and all of us had a very relaxing stay. It is well placed for vineyards and Chateau de Chaumont. We hope to visit again.

We stayed at this beautiful chateau as part of our honeymoon. It was an amazing looking place steeped in history and made to look spectacular from the outside. The rooms were a little tired and creaky but this added to the character! The food was fantastic, especially the breakfast and the brioche was a work of art. A thoroughly enjoyable... More

Stayed here at the beginning of August for five nights as a family with three children. Incredibly relaxing with beautiful rooms, gardens and swimming pool. Claude could not do enough for us organising various activities and serving incredible food and wine. Really felt like you were living in your own serviced Chateau.

We returned this year, having had such a relaxing, enjoyable stay last year, and I think we'll be going back again. The chateau is small and beautiful, incredibly comfortable and has so many individual and personal touches that it creates an ideal setting to really relax. Claude and his staff are delightful; very attentive, kind and thoughtful. This place is... More

Chateau du Portail is a very special property: although you cannot call it a chateau by size and design (it looks more like a large country house with 5 - 6 guest rooms), it has tons of charm and personality making it a great place to stay. This is a place where we felt at home throughout our stay: the... More

A small but beautifully appointed French chateau full of wonderful antiques. the rural setting is peaceful and relaxing yet near to main towns and famous chateaux. Claude, the owner is a charming host who serves excellent food and drink. it is a special place to stay and one that we will return to.

The rooms are spacious, comfortable and interesting, the location perfect for visiting the chateaux, the food truly delicious and the Jack Russells welcoming. What more can you ask? I suppose you could ask for a pleasant and helpful host. Claude Hubert is so much more than that. His whole raison d'être is ensuring that you have a marvellous stay. He... More

My partner and two close friends stayed at the Chateau du Portail for 3 nights over Easter, partly to celebrate my birthday but mostly to relax and enjoy a bit of the lovely cuisine and wine in the region. We've visited the region before but opted to try somewhere new as grown a bit tired of the accommodation options in... More
