“Disappointing and expensive”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

This castle is beautiful and the grounds fantastic, however it is full of tacky plastic flowers, dusty stuffed animals, naff paintings etc! The beds were SO uncomfortable and had plastic undersheets - gross! In the morning we were not welcomed at breakfast and had to ask for more coffee/juice etc. Although the couple who run the castle are sweet they have now idea how to play host and I really feel that at 170 euros a night we were ripped off.

Room Tip: Don't stay here!

We offer our apologies to this customer because we have not met his expectations, even if we do not fully understand his disappointment.
To respond to these comments, we are sorry that the decoration of our house doesn't correspond to your sensibility. About undersheets protecting the mattress from our beds, we want to ensure perfect hygiene of our bedding and it is to this end that our beds are filled.
We thank him for his remark about the breakfast, we try to make every effort to respond as quickly as possible to the needs of our various customers. We would also like to add that the night is 170€ for 4 people including breakfast.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012

A very young and nice couple welcomes you in this authentic XV century castle in the middle of the Natural reserve of Grand Briere. The atmosphere is unbelievable: you are enjoying a real castle feeling as it is your house! We were in the "Aux Souvenirs" room with a very nice and charming view over the park and the lake. The room is in the corner at the 2nd floor and is very large with also a very nice and recently renovated bathroom.
Nice breakfast served in the lounge with delicious fresh fruits and "boulangerie". The couple is very friendly & nice! They were always very proactive to provide us with suggestions, advises, recommendations and also practical information about the region.
Be careful: nearby the Castle there are not very many restaurants
