Our second visit to this wonderful hotel but with a 20 year gap in between. The current owners are warm and welcoming - nothing was too much trouble. All bedrooms are different. The two we saw were large and beautifully decorated in a very lavish style. The hotel is located in a peaceful location with nice gardens and attractive swimming... More

This building is beautiful, but shouldn't be run as a hotel. On arrival, there were bags of rubbish on the steps leading up to the hotel which were still there on our 3rd day! There was a mess of children's toys at the top of the steps/drive, and we had to wait for what seemed like an age for anyone... More

I'm really surprised by a lot of the reviews here. Although this chateau is in a beautiful location and is itself a marvelous historic location, it is in a state of disrepair and the quality of service and amenities here is quite poor. This might be a deal for half the price, but is robbery at the current rate. Here... More

We had a fantastic three night stay here in early September. The chateau is amazingly beautiful it almost takes your breath away. We booked a double room but we were luckily put in a family suite so had a wonderfully large bedroom with two beds and a chaise longe overlooking the garden! Didier and Sylvie we're incredibly accommodating, even letting... More

This place is to die for. Never have I stayed in such a beautiful placed. The pictures on the website really don't do it justice. I almost didn't book this hotel, as I read through the reviews on Trip Advisor and saw that some were a little negative about the service and the hotel itself. I'm so glad I decided... More

Entering through high electric gates, discarding the car in a discrete car park below the garden, we walked in silent wonder through a subtly-tended formal garden up to the impressive chateaux entrance with its welcoming ever-open front door. Our room was lovely with a beautiful view across the garden and over towards the distant mountains. Our hosts were very welcoming,... More

Pleasant surroundings but rather cool host did nothing to explain facilities, where pool was located, time for breakfast and where it was served and location of honor bar- who knew that there was one- glad we found it on our own. Room pleasant though shower arrangement in bathtub less than satisfactory.

My husband and I loved the chateau. When you first arrive you have to go through beautiful iron gates to enter the property. The property is large and peaceful - there are plenty of places to sit and have a glass of wine. Our room was large and furnished with French furniture and had a wooden floor and those great...

Easy to find, excellent reception, beautifully appointed room, made to feel very welcome by the owner, Monsieur Hascoët and his wife, Sylvie. Alwys extremely helpful with restaurant and taxi reservations. Very quiet and relaxing, nice pool, excellent breakfast, what more you need ?

The property is right in the heart of the village, but the large grounds make for a very peaceful location. The welcome was very warm and friendly and the large rooms with beautiful pieces of antique furniture are really special and it feels like a real treat to stay here, especially if you can secure a good rate mid-week in...
