These Relais Chateaux hotel/restaurants in France over the years have become very expensive, and while normally very good, some are not great. The rooms are nice, but lets face it, most are very old and while charming and appealing to the eye in their renovated/retrofitted states, are they worth it? Plus the meal costs at demi pension are out of... More

We stayed at this hotel very recently for one night (one of five on a journey to and from France). Lovely setting, good room but exhorbitantly priced. Over pretentious service in the restaurant without food to match. I had 'the chef's favourite' which turned out to be a small piece of very tough lamb with minimal vegetables in the middle... More

Stayed for one night in a suite Christophe Columbe, food wind and service excellent and accommodation very comfortable. Was last here 20 years ago and liked it so much we extended out stay to 3 days, this time again it didn't disappoint and was even more beautiful than I remembered. Will be back.

This is a gorgeous castle with beautiful grounds. The rooms are strange in a good way. We stayed with our two kids in the Christopher Columbus room, which was castle with a nautical theme. Beautiful restaurant with dishes so artistic it seems ashamed to bite into them. We left our camera behind and they sent it all the back to... More

Only stayed one night at this hotel on the way to Italy, so unable to give a fully comprehensive review, but I will do my best because this hotel does deserve a good review. On arrival we made our way straight to the pool for champagne and lunch, this was a good move and a perfect start to our holiday.... More

Very beautiful location. Staying in a castle has always been a dream. This was a wonderful and unforgettable experience that I will always cherish. The grounds are lovely and the staff are eager to help and go above and beyond to make sure you are comfortable. Because it was a castle first and hotel second, some of the bathrooms are... More

We stayed at le château for two nights. We stayed in "Bâtard d'Orleans" and "Agnès Sorel" (known as "la Dame de beauté"). Both rooms were richly decorated and very comfortable. The location was stunning despite the poor weather. What made the stay more memorable ("la cerise sur le gâteau" if I may say) were the people working there. No matter... More

My husband turn 40 this weekend and wanted to surprise him. We did not go to a romantic weekend as our kids were with us. Basically the location is great and you have the feel to be in a castle. The suite was really kitch but this match with the environment. We spent 2 nights in one of the best... More
