“lovely rooms and breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

really nice french hospitality, pool, quiet gardens, rooms large, air conditioned and beautiful bathroom. We stayed in what used to be the cow shed.....lovely. Lovely views too. Breakfast plentiful and tasty especially sat outside beside the moat. If you are lucky you might get a tour of the castle! My only gripe is that the little pizza restaurant just round the corner was closed during our stay so we had to drive to eat out in the evening which meant we couldn't enjoy any lovely local wines with dinner!

Room Tip: think all the rooms are good!

The Chateau looks so impressive, every thing you would expect when you think of a Chateau. The rooms are all relatively new & superbly decorated. The breakfast room in the Chateau it's self is great as was the breakfast, the owners are very friendly & if you are really lucky they may let you look around the inside of the house(wow). We loved it a real high light on our trip to the Alps.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2011

If you are looking for a romantic, secluded, modern, well restored, spacious motel room on a 1,000 year old property in the Rhone area - this is the place... This hotel opened 2 months ago - and it is beautiful. The 6 rooms are in a renovated stable - and they have done an outstanding job. The rooms are large by European standards, include queen or king beds, desk, large flat screen TV, great lighting, modern bathroom, hardwood floors, beam ceilings, individually controled heat (quiet!) and free wi-fi. The rooms have a view of the courtyard or the garden. Very comfortable!!!

The property includes a nice swimming pool, great gardens, and is in the country-side - so very quiet. Free parking inside the gate. Perfect for walks in the evening. There is a small Italian restaurant within easy walking distance, and Villefranche sur saone /Trevoux/ Reyrieux are an easy drive.

Breakfast is included in the rate, consisting of fresh pastry, breads, meats, cheese, yogurt, juice, coffee... served in a large comfortable dining area - with personal service.

I stayed in the hotel because my normal hotel was booked - and this was a good alternative as it is closer to the factory I was visiting. The staff was very accomodating to a business traveller, - but you should be aware that as with any hotel of this size, the check in times and staff availability are limited. I was able to coordinate with the staff, including checking out the night before (leaving the hotel at 4:30AM)... and they offered to make up a take-away breakfast. Communication will be the key...

Overall - it was a great stay and will return with my wife on a future trip...
