We stayed with a family of four in one of the 2* rooms in the main building of the domaine. Luckily, it was a not too warm day, since these rooms have no aircon. It was still quite warm in the room. The room was spacious and the bed was fine, however the room was a bit outdated. It was... More

We were on our way from the South of France after a holiday in the sun.We chose this place for its location and because the restaurant had a Michelun star. The weather was very hot. On arrival we were taken upstairs in the main building to our room. It was unbearably hot.The sun had been shining on our window all... More

We spent a long weekend in this very nice hotel. The restaurant is an absolute must-go and the hotel overall was a great experience. Nice park/garden and terrace, charming rooms and highly professional and resourceful staff.

Set amidst a large wooded garden, this charming hotel features pristene classic French cooking, well-appointed service and comfortable rooms. The more casual 'le cottage' up the hill from the main restaurant has a more modern ambience.

As we were shown past the little pond with the swan, we realized we had been here years ago. The rooms in the annex are very good. The entire place has been tastefully renovated and our room was large and comfortable. The grounds are lovely. The dining room tables are placed in a very strange position, having all "couples" tables... More

We stayed just one night and were impressed by the main house, the breakfast and the grounds. The annex where we stayed lacked charm. And there was a wedding that seemed to dominate the focus of the staff. It took way too long to get a couple of glasses of wine. They did advise us of the wedding in advance.... More

This was a lovely place to stay, a beautiful house with very attractive gardens. The food was excellent and accommodation in the main house simple but accurately priced. I would recomend the hotel for a weekend away or a brilliant way to break a long journey if driving across France. The grounds were lovely and the surrounding countryside was a... More

First class service from all staff, where everybody was very polite,friendly and helpful. A 1star Michelin Chef where each course is outstanding and I must say we are looking forward to our next stay. But please ... don't... More

We arrived to a very warm and friendly welcome from the young lady on reception who took us to our room (in the annex) and explained everything very well. After unpacking we sat on a terrace at the front of the main building enjoying a relaxing drink and the wonderful grounds. The dinner was excellent and the service efficient and... More

The 4 star hotel is well situated in a quiet area a few miles south of Vienne with some nice landscaping. We were allocated a room in the Annexe as the main rooms (cheaper) were taken by a wedding party. The room was excellent; large, nice bathroom, separate loo and a small terrace surrounded by greenery. Worth noting that the... More
