We had a two night stay here in room 20 which is airy and spacious and has a little sitting area tucked in the corner tower. In high summer this room would be hot but there are large windows for air but no a/c. I was a little cold but the central heating fixed that quickly. The bathroom was spacious and well equipped. There was a fridge and mini bar. The only criticism i have is there was a bedspread which is a continuing bugaboo of mine. I prefer duvets and in this day and age all hotels should have them. The view is over the pretty gardens and pool and we could hear a horse demanding his supper around 5 pm. This is a chateau so you have to remember its not going to have elevators and level floors. Dinner was sublime...we went the whole hog and it was served professionally and with a nice tempo without being a 4 hour affair. The portions were generous for this calibre of restaurant. Breakfast was buffet and we were late the first morning so the coffee was not the hottest. The croissants were high quality. The fruit was a little on the spartan side but there was an orange squeezer (electric) for fresh OJ. You could boil your own egg...trial and error yielded a requirement of 7 minutes for this. The cheese and ham were a little boring considering the region but the French don't do breakfast the way the Scots do for example....no fry ups. The staff were courteous and spoke good English. No warm welcome here but we were not treated badly either. On the second night, having had a lunch on our sightseeing trip, we went to the local super market and bought cheese and wine and had that in our room ....an early night in advance of a long drive the next day. For the price we thought the chateau was very good value. I would say it would be super for a small party or wedding in late June or early Sept.
