Great stay at the Chateau in Ancemont close by many memorials to the great battle of Verdun during First World War. Lovely to stay in a small Chateau lovingly restored by the owners. The accommodation was good and Rene and Marie Jose made the stay memorable. The hospitality is fantastic and the evening meals matched those of a good French... More

Our one night stay with René and Marie-José at Chateau de Labessiere exceeded all our expectations. We frequently travel in France but have never experienced hospitality to match this. The welcome was polite and friendly, the room was beautiful but the evening experience was out of this world (as it is now!). Aperitifs and amuses-bouches are served in the library... More

A beautifully restored chateau filled with fine furniture it is about twenty minutes south of Verdun near the River Meuse and ideally situated to visit the WW1 sites in the area. The rooms are huge with modern fittings and spotlessly clean. Rene is a great host and nothing is too much trouble. He speaks good English and knows the whole... More

We stayed at the Chateau in October 2014 for 2 nights and it was exquisite. Rene and Marie-Jose have lovingly restored this beautiful Chateau. The food is 5 star, and the service is brilliant. It made our stay so very delightful - we felt like kings and queens.

I met a gentlemen in my hometown and when I told him my wife and I were going to Verdun he insisted I stay at the Chateau. Why not? Our first night my wife and I were late getting to Ancemont. We arrived in the sleepy French town and met Rene who was waiting for us. He had us checked... More

The hotel is situated in a small, quiet village and our first impression was that it didn’t match up to the pictures on their web page. Parking and Wi-Fi is free. It is very much a lived in property with personal papers/books piled on some of the radiators. Rene is a good, articulate, English speaking host and we choose to... More

A lovley one night stay on our way through France to Italy. The village is quiet and there is great off road parking. The bedroom we had was large with a good sized en suite shower room. The owners made us very welcome and the breakfast and dinner were excellent. There is a pool which looked inviting but we didn't... More

My husband and I stay at Chateau Labessiere in August 2014. Our host, Renee, spoke perfect English and could not have been more helpful and informative about our site-seeing plans for the WWI Battlefields. The meals we enjoyed would rival any four/five star dining establishment. The rooms were full of quality antiques. I could go on and on. . .

We traveled to stay with Rene at his Chateau in a two family group with four teens. Everyone had such fun experiencing the hospitality here. Both the food and accommodations were great. Kids had their first four course meal and loved every moment. We were enchanted by the cocktail hour with Rene. Very nice to see that it is still... More
