We have stayed here 7/8 times and it never fails too charm and set our holiday start up or finish it in style....This without doubt is one of the best,magical places to stay,just southwest of Paris.The old hotel is set within a living museum of a kind (and offers a wonderful experience whether in winter sitting by the massive fire in the lounge or in summer sitting in the terrace with an apertif.The restaurant caters for most budgets but the food is outstanding,selection of wine vast and the cheese trolley is the most extensive i have ever seen anywhere. The Cistercian monks lived and worked this land and wandering around the crypt you can see the hand carved afms on the settles depicting their role in the daily running of this Abbaye.Now in the hands of the Rothschilds they hace resisted the idea of building a golf course and set about keeping the grounds and buildings in the best condition possible and should be commended.A leisurely walk around the lake is also a treat as you can literally feel the living past all around you,anyone that knocks this place i would severely take too task as it represents so much of the past with a modern mix that doesnt do detrement to the living museum....book in advance for best rates other hotels within this small Chateaux group are also worth trying....enjoy your stay
