It had been six years since our last visit and we wondered was it as good as we remembered. We were not disappointed. The staff are as fantastic as ever, friendly and welcoming. The atmosphere of the château is a reflection of the lovely people who work there. The grounds are beautifully maintained and entice the visitor to wander around.... More

We have stayed at Le Verie a number of times over the past few years and the standard has continued to rise. The menu is fantastic and beautifully presented, dinner on the terrace is an experience not to be missed. Rooms are a novel mix of the old combined with modern facilities, excellent wifi, tv etc. It is a place... More

Today. Brilliant. The grounds are beautiful. The building is charming. The meal was delicious. The service was attentive and courteous. 5 ladies with differing tastes, from the set menu, incredibly good value, to the à la carte with foie gras and langoustines. The wines matched the meals. Can't praise this place enough. Nothing was too much trouble. So under-rated. It... More

This is our fourth visit to this elegant chateau set in pleasant parkland, complete with swimming pool and tennis court. The receptionist was friendly and very welcoming (and happy to tactfully correct my faulty French); and all of the staff were equally amiable and helpful. The room was reasonably spacious with wooden floors, antique furniture and traditional decor, which was... More

We stayed here for just one night and did Not have an evening meal so cannot comment on this aspect. The chateau is in a lovely setting with beautiful grounds and plenty of parking space. It appeared to have a very nice outdoor pool but again we did not use. The staff were very helpful and friendly, we were even... More

We loved this place. If it’s nightlife and an active urban scene you are looking for, this is not the place. This is a chateau built in the 16th century that has been adapted as a modern day hotel to the extent possible. No elevator, which wasn’t a problem --- and no air conditioning, but it absolutely was not needed.... More

Stayed two nights here in July. Delightful lady on reception - lovely welcome. Good pool outside for a quick swim. Second floor bedroom (no lift). Very comfortable. TV - very limited programmes. Free wifi. Good bathroom. Clean. Delightful view over extensive grounds. Treated ourselves to an evening meal - cheapest 'menu' at 35 euros each, but glad we did it.... More

Checked in for a night in the "Royal" room complete with its own tower (which houses a sitting room with mini bar!) and views over the park, a great start and with a warm welcome at reception.
