This was our second visit to this wonderfully situated chateau. The first was 37 years ago when on our first holiday together. My husband had booked one night here as a treat between two parts of our French holiday in more modest surroundings. The setting was as romantic and wonderful as I had remembered but, I suppose having stayed in several other up-market hotels since, the fantasy did not quite live up to the memories. The first jolt came with dying plants around the door and foetid water in part of the moat. Then, stepping inside, the garish and rather crude paintings all by the same artist that decorate almost every wall, struck a really strange and false note. Why would anyone choose art so out of keeping with the surroundings and style of a building? Our Junior Suite Jeanne had lovely views over the river and the pool but in a luxury hotel a 4ft 6in bed is just not acceptable. Sad also about the lack of a proper shower but a lovely deep bath with gushing hot water made up for a lot. Service on the terrace for pre-dinner drinks was very slow but after that things improved and dinner was very good, although being seated at the darkest table in the room behind a very large party of German tourists was less fun. The swimming pool was freezing but the setting, chairs, decking and other pool arrangements very good and we spent a lovely hour sunning ourselves before leaving the following day. Was I glad to come back? Of course. It was charming and delightful and I would happily stay here again, but my experience is that there is nearly always something about French hotels that is a bit off-beam...and they say the English are eccentric.
