We stayed here via Great Value Vacations. Staff was great, room was spacious & nicely decorated. Bed was very comfortable. We enjoyed a bountiful breakfast, BBC News channel during our stay. From here we drove to Chartres & le Mont St Michel. Would stay here again.

We went in the off-season so maybe that had something to do with it! I cannot describe how absolutely gorgeous the chateau was. We had a wonderful time. The grounds were beautiful and well maintained - I mean there was a moat for gods sake! We went in mid November so it was a bit chilly but that didn't detract... More

Chateau d'Esclimont is located SW of Paris and takes about an hour to drive to. We stayed here for 3 nights in mid January. If you don't like crowds, this is the time to travel. I think that we were one of four couples staying in the chateau. The building is lovely - like Dowton Abby I've heard some say.... More

On route to Calais from our home in the Ariege we had got to within 100k of Paris and the light was fading. So turned of motorway and the pulled into parking. Asked SatNav for hotels close by and this was closest. When we drove into the grounds the Chateau is stunning and probably worth the room cost just for... More

Live a fairy tale!!!! Stay in a real castle!!!.... feel like a princess or a prince... This gorgeous Castle was transformed into a beautiful hotel. Set on calm, beautiful grounds, surrounded by lakes and ducks... among gardens of fresh green grass... hidden from the world... It´s definately a five star hotel, beautifully decorated with ancient furniture and paintings, but among... More

Me and a couple of friends stayed in Chateau d'Esclimont for 2 nights in mid-September. It was my first time staying in a real castle, so no previous experience to compare. Vast, silent and beautiful park, pond with black swan, walls and the turrets of this old chateau - it all was impressive, romantic and kinda dreamy. And then... it... More

We spent 3 days in castle with family in August 2013. It was simply amazing. Garden and water around, air balloon adventure, horses.. Great experience to remember for ages! Special thanks to the restaurant chief - food was very tasty and beyond expectations. Highly recommended for couples and special family events.

When we stayed here about 25 years ago, we were bowled over by Chateau d'Esclimont (a magnificent room, delicious food and excellent service), so we decided to stay here for our last 2 nights in France. The exterior of the chateau is as magical as ever and we were given a warm welcome by the young male receptionist. However, the... More
