This is one of the best if not THE best Relais & Chateaux we've visited. We were there in mid April of this year and the weather was beautiful, especially after the snow in Paris!
From the moment we pulled into the car park to the genuinely gracious farewell there was not one single misstep in accomodations, service, friendliness or anything for that matter. It was as if these people actually loved their jobs.
I can hardly add to what the other reviews said about the property itself; it is truly a beautiful park like atmosphere. Afternoon tea or coffee in the lounge, then to another lounge for pre dinner drinks....so elegant yet not at all stuffy.
And the food. Fabulous. They serve the absolute best cassoulet on the planet. The recipe came from the owner's grandfather and I would make a special trip down there for this dish alone. I've had a lot of cassoulet and none can hold a candle to this one.
Breakfast was included and huge. They even had scrambled eggs. Put this one on your list if you want to be out of the tourist mobs. It is truly special.
